AMD Ryzen 9 7900X Discounted by $125, $110 Off on the 7700X, $70 Off on the 7600X

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors have gotten their first Christmas discounts, with the 7950X, 7900X, and 7700X going for <$100 below their sticker prices. We’ve picked out three pre-holiday season deals that you should consider if you’re in the market for a new CPU. The Ryzen 9 7900X launched last year with an MSRP of $549 but is now available for just $425, a massive $125 discount. Don’t forget the promo code “SSCCZA822.”

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7900X.
  • MSRP: $549.
  • Deal Price: $425.
  • Freebies: Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora ($70).

The Ryzen 7 7700X debuted at $399 but has gradually dropped under $300, currently going for just $290 on Newegg (promo code: AFFIRM15DEC). A $110 discount on a $400 chip is nothing to scoff at and will probably keep your PC going for another couple of years. With the Ryzen 7 7800X3D going for $399, this is strictly a budget-oriented option unless you own an AM4 board, in which case the 5800X3D is a better buy.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 7700X.
  • MSRP: $399.
  • Deal Price: $290.
  • Freebies: Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora ($70).

The Ryzen 5 7600X is the cheapest Zen 4 chip in most markets. With a hex-core design and 32MB of L3 cache, it is considered the bare minimum for several AAA titles. Regardless, unless you are aiming for 100 FPS+, it should do just fine in most scenarios.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 7600X.
  • MSRP: $299.
  • Deal Price: $229.
