After months of the Ryzen 5000 series shortage, it is now widely available to consumers. A recent report from Overclock3D states that AMD Ryzen 5000 is witnessing a price decrease.
AMD Zen3 microarchitecture-based processors are not only easily available but are being sold under their MSRP.
Although the website reports on the UK market, where each of the four main Ryzen 5000 CPUs has received a price cut, the price changes are global, and every major retailer is offering AMD CPUs at new prices.
In the US, Ryzen 9 5900X was a little more expensive, with major retailers like Amazon offering in the price range of 590 to 610 USD. However, the prices for the rest of the series have fallen by up to 12% in the US, 18% in the UK, and 16% in the EU.
The graph charts also reflect the same trends where prices for AMD Ryzen 5000 series are steadily decreasing in Europe and the US, but at a bit slower pace.
In the next 4 months, major announcements from Intel and AMD regarding the next-gen desktop processor series are expected. Intel will launch its heterogeneous Alder Lake series while AMD is all set to update its Zen3 architecture with 3D V-Cache SKUs. We can expect a further price drop once the upcoming series arrives in the market.
