Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core Zen3 CPU now available for less than €180

AMD Ryzen 5000 gets cheaper, reports

AMD has been consistently lowering prices for its Ryzen 7000 series processors since their initial announcement, impacting the Ryzen 5000 series, which is based on the previous Zen3 architecture. The 5000 series marked the end of the AM4 socket era, which has now been succeeded by the modern AM5 platform, supporting DDR5 and PCIe Gen5 standards.

As DDR5 memory and Gen5 storage become more affordable, gamers are increasingly inclined to opt for Zen4-based CPUs to ensure support and maintain their upgrade path for the foreseeable future. While AMD did confirm their intention to continue AM4 support and release some CPUs later, there haven’t been any significant developments in this regard over the past year or so.

The most recent release, the Ryzen 5 5600X3D, features a 6-core design with 3D V-Cache, but it’s unfortunately not available worldwide. The X3D series, including the highly popular Zen3 CPU, the 5800X3D, is likely the optimal choice for maximizing performance on the AM4 platform, particularly for gamers. However, not everyone’s needs revolve around gaming, and some may prefer more cores or may not require 3D V-Cache for their workloads.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Pricing in Europe
ProcessorCurrent Lowest Price (Geizhals)
Ryzen 5 5500€94
Ryzen 5 5600€129
Ryzen 5 5600X€129
Ryzen 7 5700X€155
Ryzen 7 5800X€165
Ryzen 9 5900X€279
Ryzen 7 5800X3D€289
Ryzen 9 5950X€419

In such cases, the Ryzen 7 5800X, which is now priced at $165 after a €15 reduction since early September, offers an appealing alternative to the €289 Ryzen 7 5800X3D, making it an attractive option for those seeking a balance between performance and cost.

It remains uncertain whether this constitutes a temporary price shift or a more enduring change, but it is worth noting that AMD has also implemented a comparable sale on its official EU store, albeit with higher prices. Nonetheless, this could be interpreted as one of AMD’s final attempts to clear out its inventory of Zen3 CPUs before the anticipated launch of an update to its Ryzen 7000 series, slated for around Q2 next year.
