Editor's Picks Ryzen Tech News

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D Now Available for Only $629.99 at Newegg

It’s very tempting … I’ve already sold my Ryzen 9 7900X (non 3d V-cache), and will probably be planning toget this chip after I come back from Computex.

Taken from TPU … Newegg is selling AMD’s top-of-the-range Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPU for $629.99 – so $70 below the usual asking price in the USA – although buyers will have to venture onto the e-tailer’s Ebay store in order to pick up some fancy 16-core silicon action, Newegg’s main site lists the CPU for the regular sum of $699.99. This weekend’s sudden discount represents the lowest ever price for Ryzen 9 7950X3D only two months into its product lifespan. According to Ebay’s tracking stats (for this particular product page) only four units have sold in the past 24 hours, and that a “limited quantity” of AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPUs are available to purchase.

TPU’s February review of this processor was filled with praise (plus awards: Editor’s Choice & Innovation), but the high asking price was a point of contention. This weekend’s (likely temporary) discount now gives the potential buyer a little bit of extra value – with the CPU’s per core price dropping just under $40, and per thread cost being slightly south of $20. AMD’s Ryzen 7000X3D series has been through a bumpy batch since late April – some owners have reported hardware burnouts and AMD is currently working on fixes. Buyer perception could have been affected by recent publicity, so it is possible that Newegg is attempting to get some surplus stock out of the door.
