AMD has shaken up the most profitable resellers and the global shortage of chips to bring to the store its line of some of the best gaming processors. There seems to be a lot of chips available today, and they are all luckily sold to MSRP worldwide.
It seems long ago that six- and eight-core Ryzen 5000 CPUs would put aside the ongoing chip crisis, which continues to make finding a graphics card a nightmare task. The Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X could be seen near or near MSRP for most of the year.
Rather, they were enthusiast-level processors with a large number of cores built from almost immaculate 7 nm chips that have not been so easy to grasp. The wanted one Ryzen 9 5900X managed to allude to the maximum at a PVP of $ 549 since launch, and you could forget about the Ryzen 9 5950X at any price close to the recommended price of $ 799.
Fortunately, this is no longer the case, and both the Ryzen 9 5900X and the Ryzen 9 5950X are available in MSRP almost anywhere.
The availability of the new APU Ryzen 3 5300G, Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G is a bit more flashy, but even these cool-faced parts are available near PVP at most retailers I’ve visited.
Data engineer Michael Driscoll has been closely monitoring the markets of resellers such as Ebay and StockX, suggesting that the price change of AMD CPUs has ceased to be profitable to buy and sell.
“The Zen 3 market on eBay and StockX is now almost boring, which is wonderful,” Driscoll writes in his Zen Market Report 3. "Gone are the days of last year when it was impossible to get a Zen 3 CPU for 1.4-2.4 times its retail price. Now you can buy one at a simple price and a d & # 39; Occasion less than MSRP ".
Since retailers officially sell these CPUs to MSRP, it is no longer possible to sell them in markets like Ebay or StockX.
“A similar story is presented for the 5900X, most spectacularly on May 6, where Antonline made it available for $ 585 and sold over 600 CPUs, and also made the 5950X available for $ 879 and is it sold more than 700 CPUs in one week. Antonline sets a maximum on eBay for pricing, and right now it’s not profitable to scale Zen 3 CPUs, ”Driscoll explains.
Unsurprisingly, however, AMD's desktop market share fell 2.3% between the first quarter and the second quarter of the year. Mercury Research reports. AMD’s global XD market share rose 1.8% during that time, however, which was reduced to the server and mobile figures that led to Intel’s sales.
Therefore, the availability of AMD desktops does not necessarily mean a big gain over Intel. But there are many reasons why this could be. For example, Intel has the OEM and pre-built PC market virtually nailed to date, and a rugged supply will no doubt be a key selling factor during the chip drought.
However, Intel also offers, by far, the cheapest CPUs of this generation. It’s wild, I know, but Intel Rocket Lake is the cheaper option than AMD’s Ryzen 5000 or the latest generation Ryzen 3000.
Still, it's great news that AMD Ryzen 5000 prices are falling again in MSRP, especially in the high end. There are some Ryzen 7 5800X offerings that see an excellent gaming chip drop about $ 40 as much and narrow the gap with Intel's Core i7 10700K. Similarly, the $ 549 Ryzen 9 5900X, while not an offer in itself, is our favorite gaming CPU today at its natural price.
Now, if only the GPU market remained the same. Although, unfortunately, it seems like many months may pass before this happens. At least AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 XT has been readily available since its launch earlier this week, it’s a shame it’s not a more desirable card. Anyway, it’s still a relative bargain by current standards.
