Before the launch of the Ryzen 7000 processors, the price of the previous generation falls again significantly. The processors Ryzen 7 5800X3D, Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X became cheaper at the weekend.
After Nvidia’s RTX 4000 graphics cards were presented this week, the excitement will continue next week: The test embargo for AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 processors will fall on Monday, and the new generation should be available from Tuesday. This is already having an impact on the market: There are further bargain opportunities for buyers of Ryzen CPUs.
Popular and cheap
In the last few weeks there have been repeated price reductions for some processors from AMD’s Ryzen 5000 generation. And this weekend, too, a sharp kink in the price curve can be seen for three CPUs: The Ryzen 7 5800X3D, Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X processors have all fallen sharply in price. Appropriately, these three models are right at the top in the popularity ranking. According to the PCGH price comparison, the Ryzen 7 5800X takes first place, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D comes in third place, and the Ryzen 5 5600X comes in fourth place.
In terms of pricing, AMD’s latest model, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, has been on sale since Friday for 444 euros at Mindfactory offered. Previously you had to spend significantly more for the processors with at least 459 euros. However, the current price is not an absolute rock bottom: several weeks ago, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D was even briefly offered for 422 euros.

The other two CPUs have also been available for less money for a short time in the past, but the processors are still quite cheap compared to the past few weeks. The Ryzen 5 5600X fell from 199 to 179 euros, and the Ryzen 7 5800X was briefly offered yesterday for 269 instead of 289 euros. Mindfactory is currently demanding again 275 euros for the processor. But that’s not far from the absolute lowest price – 259 euros at the end of July.
