Ryzen 5000 and 7000: The prices remain very low – even with Intel

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X with 39,000 points in Cinebench R23 (rumour)

Shortly before Christmas, the prices for many processors with Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 7000 remain at a low level. Some of the prices are even at a historically low level.

After the price reductions for the Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 7000 family, which AMD described as temporary, we would like to take a look at the situation on the market again shortly before Christmas.

Ryzen 5000 and Intel analyzed

In the Top 10 CPUs in the PCGH price comparison, relatively little has changed in the last few weeks. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D with an additional 3D stack cache is still enthroned at the top. Here is the best price (Mindfactory) currently at 365 euros and has even increased slightly recently. On the other hand, the current prices for the other eight-core Zen 3 Ryzen Ryzen 7 5700X (198 euros at Mindfactory) and Ryzen 7 5800 (228 euros at Mindfactory). Three of the current top 5 CPUs are Ryzen 5000 eight-core processors, which is certainly no coincidence.

Intel actually also occupies two places in the top 5 with the current Raptor Lake generation. The Core i5-13600K has become steadily cheaper in recent weeks and currently ranks at around 349 euros (Mindfactory). The curve is also pointing downwards with the Core i7-13700K, at the moment it costs a good 452 euros (mind factory again). Both CPUs started at the end of October for 399 and 539 euros respectively. Thanks to price reductions, the price-performance classic Core i5-12400F is again well placed, Mindfactory is currently demanding almost 165 euros. It should not be without reason that it is almost the same price that Mindfactory calls for the Ryzen 5 5600X – because it is at 168 euros.

What does Ryzen 7000 do?

And where is the Ryzen 7000 guard now, you are probably wondering? Only two of the new Zen 4 CPUs make an appearance in the top 10 at Geizhals. The best thing is again an eight-core, namely the Ryzen 7 7700X, which is available from Mindfactory is offered for 365 euros. Yes, that’s exactly the price that’s also being asked for the 5800X3D. 479 euros was once the RRP. Otherwise, the Ryzen 5 7600X is worth mentioning, which currently ranges at 267 euros (Mindfactory). The RRP was once at 359 euros. The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X falls short at Mindfactory with 495 euros almost the 500 mark, the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X remains with 604 euros at Mindfactory just above the magical 600 mark.
