AMD seems to be all set to announce their newest Threadripper processors and the X399 platform. The company is making space for the new line of processors and as a result, the Ryzen 7 is now seeing a massive price drop from its original launch price.
This seems to be a great time to buy a Ryzen 7 series processor if you have been thinking of investing in one. With the Threadripper processors launching ‘this summer’, the slashed prices of the entire Rzyen 7 series is quite tempting.
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, and 1700 are available at a significant discount from Amazon and Newegg for $455, $349, and $299 respectively. The three processors are available for even lower on eBay that is retailing the 1800X for $429 and 1700X for $309.
The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X was priced at $499 during launch, while the 1700X came with a price tag of $399. The two processors have received a discount of 14 percent and 23 percent respectively. These price cuts also become significant because of the fact that the Ryzen 7 lineup was launched just a few months back.
It is already an incredibly powerful processor lineup even for its launch price and these new discounts are making the Ryzen 7 series a much better deal. A number of AM4 based motherboards are now available in the market and it is just the perfect time to build yourself a solid gaming PC while saving a few dollars as well.
Of the three, the 1700X has turned out to be the most popular Ryzen 7 processor as it offers a great balance between performance and price. The 8-core processor has a base clock of 3.4GHz and turbo clock speed of 3.8GHz with its TDP rated at 95W.
After a nearly $100 discount, the processor is just the best for your next gaming PC. With all the things put together, your gaming rig would cost half of what it costs to make an as powerful rig with comparable hardware from Intel.
