Now might be one of the better times to upgrade to one of AMD’s latest Ryzen processors. As can be observed at major retailers such as Amazon and Newegg, Ryzen 9 5900X and other Zen 3 chips are now being sold at lower prices. This applies to listings seen in the US, UK, and EU markets.

The UK market appears to be enjoying the biggest discounts, with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X now costing up to 18 percent less than its original MSRP of £429 on Amazon at £352. That’s followed by the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X at £244, a discount of 16 percent versus its £290 MSRP.

  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X – Launch price £289.99 – Current Price £245.99
  • AMD Ryzen 7 5800X – Launch Price £428.99 – Current Price £354.79
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900X – Launch price £529.99 – Current Price £450.00
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5950X – Launch price £749.99 – Current Price £718.88

Pricing is also cheaper by up to 12 percent in the US and 16 percent in the EU. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is the most heavily discounted model on Amazon at $394, a decent decrease from its $449 MSRP.

The timing of the discounts is interesting, as Intel will reportedly release its 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake-S” processors in just a few months. AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors are also sure to get cheaper when its new Zen 3 3D V-Cache successors begin rolling out in early 2022.
