Intel managed to add a new dimension to the competition by making a strong entry into the market with its 12th Gen Alder Lake processors. The sales figures of the new hybrid chips of the blue team are quite good. AMD, on the other hand, has finally started to cut prices on Zen 3 processors.
The flagship AMD Ryzen 9 5950X can now be purchased at retailers abroad with prices as low as 520 dollars and 530 euros. These are not due to a global price cut for now. However, as interest in the Alder Lake series grew, AMD reportedly began lowering the list price for distributors and major retailers. This is good news for end consumers.
12-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900X dropped as low as 400 euros for the first time in April. Also, in the USA, it is sold for less than $ 400, while it goes down to $ 370. Additionally, the 8-core 5800X costs $130 less than the 5800X3D if it costs $319.
On the other hand, the price of Ryzen 5 series processors has been falling steadily since the beginning of this year. The high-end Ryzen 9 family, on the other hand, dropped noticeably in April. We do not expect AMD to release a new AM4 processor from now on. According to rumors, Ryzen 7000 CPUs with the new Zen 4 architecture will go into mass production this month and will be introduced in the late third quarter.
