Retailers in the US have started providing discounts for the Ryzen 7 7700X processor. Ryzen 7000X3D series has undergone significant price adjustments, whereas the original series without 3D V-Cache has remained mostly unchanged. However, things seem to be changing now for the latter as well.
The Ryzen 7 7700X is a desktop CPU with 8 cores and Zen4 architecture. Initially, it was released with a price tag of $399, but later it was reduced to $330, and it has remained at that price for quite some time. However, today we have some exciting news – both Amazon and Newegg are offering coupons that bring the price down to below $300!
It is evident that even though the prices and coupons may differ, the end price remains constant at $295. This leads us to believe that the price adjustment was probably a calculated move by AMD and not a coincidence arranged by two separate retailers.
It is worth noting that the 7700X is now priced lower than its non-X variant, which is still being sold at $320. While the non-X version has a TDP limitation, it offers the same number of cores as the X variant. Additionally, with the recent launch of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, gamers now have the option of a more potent gaming CPU. Unfortunately, this SKU is significantly more expensive, with a price tag of $499, and it’s not eligible for any discounts as of now.
