AMD Ryzen 5 7600X CPU Prices Dropped To $238.99 At Amazon

CPU pricing, especially between Intel and AMD, has been a hot topic lately, particularly as AMD continues to slash prices across the board on its latest Zen 4 desktop architecture. It was released just before the start of the holiday season, despite the Black Friday shopping events. On Cyber ​​Monday, AMD released the new Ryzen 7000 CPU series for much less than expected to counter Intel’s upcoming launch of the Raptor Lake series that will be revealed at CES 2023.

AMD Ryzen 5 7600X Sees Price Drop To $238.99 At Amazon For Intel Raptor Lake Chips

Currently, you can go to Amazon.com and find an AMD Ryzen 5 7600X CPU, with six cores across twelve threads (unlocked), for $238.99. However, Amazon runs a site-wide coupon that adds $10 off the regular price, bringing the cost to $238.99. CPU has seen a 27% drop since the official launch. And this is not the only one affected. AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X saw a twenty percent discount as well, while the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X saw a 13 percent drop.

In Europe, it’s a similar but much more dramatic story. AMD Ryzen 9 7950X sells for twenty-four percent less than launch. The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 5 7600X are down slightly, with the former down 22 percent and the latter a twenty percent difference in cost. The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X receives a slight downgrade, but it’s still totally worth it, a total of eighteen percent less than it was at launch. The cost is much higher than the US dollar of the four models.

Below is the current price in US dollars on Amazon.com and compares it to the lowest price found for European retailers and the AMD official store.

Ryzen 5 7600X processor 239 dollars (225.13 euros) 267 euros ($283.48) 280 euros ($297.28)

With Intel’s launch just half a month away, it’s rumored that early pricing for the Raptor Lake line will continue its trend of offering consumers lower-cost options. For example, the Intel Gen Core i5-12400 was initially released for around $200, and the F variant was twenty to thirty dollars less when it launched in the US. The expected price of the new i5-13400F will be close to the same low price as its predecessor, especially when the i5-12600K is currently priced between $240 and $250.

CES 2023 will kick off on January 3, 2023 for large media and presentations, while the entire event will take place on January 5, 2023, with an expected 1,300 companies in attendance.
