In the US, the cost of the model has decreased by more than $ 100
It was logical to think that after the release of AMD Ryzen 3000 XT processors (Matisse Refresh), some models of the original line will become cheaper. And so it happened: the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X in the US has already dropped in price. Obviously, in other countries, the CPU will also fall in price.
AMD 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X drops significantly after Ryzen 9 3900XT release
If the recommended retail price of the Ryzen 9 3900X at the start of sales was $ 500, then now the price has dropped to $ 390. At the same time, the Wraith Prism cooler is still bundled with the processor.
In the US, the cheaper 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X now stands at the level of the 8-core Core i7-10700K – the cost of an Intel CPU in the purchase, depending on the batch size, is $ 374-387. In retail, this processor is even more expensive, against this background the Ryzen 9 3900X seems to be an even more profitable acquisition.
