AMD slashes Ryzen 7000 CPU prices

AMD's current top-end processor, the Ryzen 9 7950X, offers great performance but it is also expensive, with a launch price of $699 in the US, or £739.99 here in the UK. If you've been holding out for a sale before picking one of these up, then now is a great time to shop around, as AMD has quietly slashed the price down by over 20%. Other Ryzen 7000 series processors are also currently on sale. 

Currently, you can grab the Ryzen 9 7950X for £599.99 from OCUK, Scan and Amazon here in the UK. Over in the US, sites like Newegg also have the chip at a discount, bringing the price down to $574.

If you need a refresher, you can see all the key specs for each new Ryzen processor in the table below:

GRAPHICS MODEL CORES THREADS MAX BOOST CLOCK BASE CLOCK TOTAL CACHE PCIE VERSION GRAPHICS CORE COUNT DEFAULT TDP
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X AMD Radeon Graphics 16 32 Up to 5.7GHz 4.5GHz 80MB Gen 5 2 170W
AMD Ryzen 9 7900X AMD Radeon Graphics 12 24 Up to 5.6GHz 4.7GHz 76MB Gen 5 2 170W
AMD Ryzen 7 7700X AMD Radeon Graphics 8 16 Up to 5.4GHz 4.5GHz 40MB Gen 5 2 105W
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X AMD Radeon Graphics 6 12 Up to 5.3GHz 4.7Ghz 38MB Gen 5 2 105W

AMD's other Ryzen 7000 processors are also seeing decent price cuts this week. The Ryzen 9 7900X is down to £479.99, the Ryzen 7 7700X is down to £359.99 and the Ryzen 5 7600X is down to £259.99. That extra money will go a long way towards picking up a decent AM5 motherboard, or upgrading to DDR5 memory.

We've reached out to AMD and this is a limited-time sale, so eventually, prices will go back up again.
