AMD Ryzen – Gaming processors: All Ryzen 5000 CPUs are below AMD’s recommended retail price
After months of delivery problems, the sales situation for AMD’s fastest desktop processor with the AM4 CPU version, the Ryzen 9 5950X, has improved. This means that all models from the 5000 series are available below the recommended retail price from AMD.
The aforementioned Ryzen 5950X with 16 computing cores currently costs around 760 euros, but was also available for 720 euros in the meantime. The processor has been below the RRP of 800 euros since the beginning of June 2021. The 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X fluctuates between 510 and 520 euros at the cheapest retailers – AMD’s recommended price is 550 euros.
Inexpensive eight- and six-core
The two models Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X have been available for months and are therefore very cheap. The six-core Ryzen 5 5600X currently costs 270 euros, but has already dropped several times towards 200 euros, for example in the “Mindstar” offer from the retailer Mindfactory (RRP: 300 euros). The eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X is currently listed from 375 euros, but was also available for 350 euros. He has thus achieved the largest price reduction compared to the RRP (450 euros).
The offers are necessary so that the Ryzen 7 5800X does not look bad compared to the Ryzen 9 5900X: AMD’s price recommendations are only around 20 percent apart, but the more expensive model has 50 percent more computing cores and achieves higher clock frequencies.
Apart from short-term offers, AMD still has little to oppose to the competition from Intel in the price range of 200 euros and less. For example, Intel offers the Rocket Lake S six-core Core i5-11400F (from € 187.90), which calculates more fps in 3D games than AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 for the same price. Noticeable: The prices of the current Core i5 CPUs have risen since they were introduced in March 2021.
