AMD cuts prices on the latest processors – now the cheapest Ryzen 7000 is $249

AMD has reduced the prices of its latest Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 desktop processors in its official online store. A few days earlier, the largest European and American retailers announced the sale of chips with significant discounts. Then it was assumed that we were talking about Black Friday stock price cuts. Apparently, the prices of AMD’s chips themselves have now been permanently reduced.

The 16-core flagship Ryzen 9 7950X fell the most. Now AMD itself is offering it for $574, which is $125 off the original price ($699). This is a very significant discount for a processor that went on sale less than two months ago. Other processors in the new series have also fallen in price, and the cheapest socket AM5 chip is currently $249 – that’s what they’re asking for a six-core Ryzen 5 7600X.

Manufacturers typically do not lower the prices of their new products so soon after launch. Apparently, AMD is facing lower than expected demand for new processors. This can probably be explained by the high cost of new socket AM5 mainboards, which are required for their operation.

According to the VideoCardz portal, there is no shortage of new AMD chips. All four Ryzen 7000 processor models are available in bulk from all verified retailers. It seems AMD is trying to increase interest in their new products until Intel releases lower-end Raptor Lake models with a locked multiplier (without the “K” suffix in the name).
