AMD discounted its Ryzen 5000 series processors and its first 3D V-Cache offering sold out in just one day. In what could be an early Black Friday tease, AMD dropped the price of several processors on its store page and one in particular, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D was dropped from $449 to $329. The 8C/16T Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor has received praise for its gaming performance. Most of the Ryzen 5000 series processors could be purchased in a bundle that included the recently released UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection or select AMD Radeon graphics cards. The 5800X3D GPU bundles that also sold out were the AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT for $1,028 or the AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT for $778, after discounts.
Other notable price drops
- Ryzen 9 5950X (16C/32T): $549 ($250 off from $799)
- Ryzen 9 5900X (12C/24T): $349 ($200 off from $549)
- Ryzen 7 5800X (8C/16T): $249 ($200 off from $449)
- Ryzen 5 5600X (6C/12T): $159 ($140 off from $299)
Those looking for more budget-friendly offerings may want to consider either the Ryzen 7 5800X at $249 or the Ryzen 5 5600X at $159. Both are still available on the store page and when paired with a newer AM4 motherboard it could be a great way to upgrade to PCIe 4.0/DDR4 hardware. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G processor is listed at $199 and the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G processor for $129 and both have integrated Radeon graphics.
VideoCardz noted that other retailers dropped their prices following AMD’s discounts. An updated search showed that Adorama, Amazon, NewEgg, and a shop in Europe all sold out of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D as well at reduced prices. Some sellers have since returned to their previous prices once AMD’s store reached its “out of stock” status. It is not known how long the AMD Discounted Ryzen 5000 prices will continue or if AMD plans to keep them moving forward in an attempt to clear old inventory now that the Ryzen 7000 series processors have arrived.
