AMD Ryzen 9 7900X Gets 48% Off, 7800X3D Drops to $299, Plus Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Free

AMD’s Black Friday Sales are in full swing. Yesterday, we reported on the best Radeon RX 6000 deals alongside price cuts on the GeForce RTX 4080 and Co. Today, we’ve compiled the best Ryzen CPU deals worth your time. Most of these processor discounts come from Microcenter and include the lowest prices we’ve ever seen them go for. The list includes the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X, 7900X3D, and the Ryzen 5 5600X3D. And before I forget, all of them come with a free copy of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

1. AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D

  • Launch Price: $449.
  • Current Price: $299.
  • Discount: -$150 (33%) Off.

The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is our favorite gaming CPU. Eight Zen 4 cores paired with an additional 64MB of 3D V-Cache (+32MB 2D) deliver top-notch performance in almost every title. Although it debuted at $449, recent price cuts and discounts have brought it down to $399, while Microcenter is offering it for just $299. That translates to a $150 price cut.

2. AMD Ryzen 9 7900X

  • Launch Price: $549.
  • Current Price: $289.
  • Discount: -$261 (48%) Off.

The Ryzen 9 7900X is one of the best processors for content creators, and Microcenter is giving it away for just $289. That’s even cheaper than the 7800X3D. It packs 12 Zen 4 cores clocked at up to 5.6GHz and 64MB of L3 cache. It debuted at $549 but can now be had for $449 across most retailers. Microcenter has pulled the rate down to just $289, a discount of 47%. Newegg has a noteworthy deal to consider if you don’t live close to a Microcenter. You pay $449 and get the 7900X, a copy of Avatar, and a PCIe Gen 4 1TB SSD.

3. AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D

  • Launch Price: $549.
  • Current Price: $469.
  • Discount: -$130 (21.7%) Off.

The Ryzen 9 7900X3D is 7800X3D’s neglected sibling. It features the same amount of L3 cache as the 7900X3D but fuses off two cores on each CCD for 12 active ones. This makes it slightly slower than the 7800X3D in gaming and moderately slower than the 7950X/7950X3D in content creation. If you’re a gamer who dabbles in rendering or video editing, you should consider this. Microcenter has discounted it to $469, down from its $549 MSRP.
