American retailers have significantly reduced the cost of Ryzen 5000 processors for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but the discount season did not end there: the local company Micro Center once again lowered the cost of Ryzen 5000 – CPUs fell to record levels.
So, if on Black Friday the hit 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X cost $ 280, now you can actually buy it for only $ 250. Other members of the family also fell in price. So, for example, the Ryzen 5 5600G is offered for $ 220, the cost of the eight-core Ryzen 7 5700G dropped by $ 80 to $ 280. Ryzen 7 5800X costs 330 dollars in the US, Ryzen 9 5900X – 470 dollars, but the price of the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X remained at the same discount level – 700 dollars.
Despite the fact that the Ryzen 5000 is still more expensive than Intel’s Alder Lake counterparts, the competition in the segment has once again intensified. Firstly, the Ryzen 5000 can be installed in a cheap motherboard based on the B550 chipset, and secondly, they work with inexpensive DDR4 memory.
