From changing market trends to competing with Intel
The changes that have happened in the current market have caused companies like AMD to reduce costs as much as possible and refrain from releasing products in the hope of returning to their good days at the end of the year. However, due to the pressure of economic recession increasing on consumers, this model of price reduction and temporary changes can be completely beneficial to customers.
On the other hand, AMD has to stay on course with its main competitor in CPUs, Intel, which could have a significant impact on the Ryzen 7 7700X. Intel’s Raptor Lake series processors, the i5-13600 and i5-13500 models, offer similar performance to the AMD chip. AMD’s price drop is expected to continue as the current 7700X is priced at $299 less than the non-X Ryzen 7700, which originally retailed for $325 at launch. The latter processor, along with the AMD Ryzen 7800X3D, could outsell the Ryzen 7 7700X due to enthusiasts looking for capable overclockable processors that offer open power limits.
CPUs are currently available at Newegg and Amazon for under US$300. At Newegg, you can get 50% off with a discount coupon, and even more interestingly, the processor comes with a copy of Star Wars Jedi Survivor, which alone is worth $70.
