AMD’s best gaming CPU drops by $100

AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D, featuring 8 cores, has been recommended by many reviewers as the best gaming CPU. 

The 7800X3D brings together the latest Zen4 microarchitecture from AMD and the innovative 3D V-Cache technology, often delivering a double-digit boost in framerate for specific games. While it might be outperformed by Intel’s latest Core i7/i9 processors in certain games, it unquestionably offers a more budget-friendly alternative, especially at present.

Newegg is currently selling this 8-core Zen4 processor with 96MB of L3 cache for $349.99, which is a significant $100 below the $449 MSRP. Although this CPU has already seen substantial discounts, this marks the moment when AMD’s top gaming CPU for the price is available at this new price point. Up to this point, the CPU has also been offered by Walmart at $354.

Four other Zen4 desktop CPUs have been discounted as well, but the second-best pick, which is 16-core variant with 3D V-Cache is unfortunately still at relatively high price of $689.99, despite repeatedly being sold at a lower price since its debut. Gamers can also choose 8-core 7700X without 3D V-Cache at $25 less than 7800X3D or 6-core 7600X, which now only costs $5 more than the non-X variant.

The AMD 7000X3D processor doesn’t demand a high-end motherboard for optimal performance, as it isn’t designed for overclocking. This presents an opportunity for gamers to save money by opting for a mid-range motherboard and now more affordable DDR5 memory.

While the price adjustment for the Ryzen 7800X3D seems to be exclusive to Newegg at the moment, it’s possible that other retailers will soon follow suit. This anticipation is driven by the imminent announcement of Intel’s new CPU series, which is expected to lead to price reductions in the 13th Gen Core series as well.
