AMD Ryzen 9 5950X deal: save $200 on AMD’s powerful 16-core CPU

Are you looking for an update? Amazon has a lot of deals on AMD Ryzen 9 processors. You can pick up Ryzen 9 5950X for $599, $200 off the regular retail price. This is the best price we’ve seen for this processor since Black Friday; even then, the discount was only $80. Amazon is also selling the Ryzen 9 5900X. For $449more than 20% cheaper than the regular price and is the cheapest in recent times.

The discount solves the main problem we had with both the Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X, which is their rather high cost. Both processors offer great performance and power efficiency, but for general gaming builds, they were a little overkill. While they still lag behind the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i9 chips in gaming performance like the Core i9 12900K and Core i5 12600K, the price cuts make them more attractive and competitive.

The 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X with 32 threads is the best processor in the Ryzen 5000 series, compatible with X570, B550, and A520 motherboards, as well as previous generation X470 and B450 motherboards. The cheaper Ryzen 9 5900X is a 12-core, 24-thread processor that is on par with the Core i9 10900K. It remains one of our favorite processors for its combination of gaming, performance, and creativity.

The performance of AMD’s Zen 3 architecture has been a welcome surprise since its launch in 2020, and it’s good to see the team closing the gap on Intel in the processor lead race. Especially now, we pay less for this privilege.

If you’ve been waiting for an update or haven’t been able to find stock, now’s the time to pull the trigger and pick a new processor. Just check out our best gaming processors to see how these two Ryzen 9 chips stack up again with some of our favorite processors, including products from Team Intel.
