After Black Friday, AMD reduced the cost of its 8-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU to $358. Last week, it briefly hit a new low of $348, representing the CPU’s first $100 drop from the official MSRP of $449. While it has increased by $10 since then, it appears that this could be AMD’s new retail price for this processor.
Despite major US retailers maintaining this price, Antoline on eBay is providing the CPU at a significantly lower cost of $339.99. This marks the first time the CPU has fallen below $340. Usually, eBay offers on Ryzen CPUs from established retailers don’t include ongoing game bundles, but in this instance, customers will also receive a copy of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.
Distinguishing itself, the 7800X3D is an 8-Core Zen4 CPU with a single chiplet housing a 64MB 3D V-Cache. Unlike the Ryzen 9 7900X3D and 7950X3D, which use a dual-chiplet configuration, the 7800X3D’s design eliminates the necessity for a software or hardware scheduler to handle task switching between Zen4 and Zen4 X3D chiplets. This strategy enhances gaming performance.
Introduced by AMD at an initial price of $449 on April 9, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D has joined the pattern of consistent price reductions seen across all Ryzen 7000 CPUs. The current eBay listing reflects a reduction of $110 in the price.
