AMD Ryzen 9 7900X Gets a Discount of $190, Starfield Premium ($100) Free

AMD’s Ryzen 9 7900X is probably one of the least popular Zen 4 processors on the market. Its price and positioning make it neither midrange nor the highest-end CPU on the market. As a result, it often gets discounted by fat margins. This week Amazon is selling the 7900X for an irresistible price of $359 alongside a free copy of Starfield Premium Edition, which costs $100.

The 12-core has a listing price of $432, which gets shaved off to $409 by a discount coupon. You can get another $50 off if you pay using an Amazon Visa card, bringing its price to $359. Adding the $100 worth Starfield code means you’re paying just $259 for a $449 chip.

The Ryzen 9 7950X launched at an MSRP of $699 last year. Since then, it has faced tough competition from Intel’s 13th Gen Core CPUs and gradually dropped in price. At the time of reporting, Microcenter is selling the Raphael flagship for just $519.99, an overall cut of $180.

Similarly, the Ryzen 9 7900X3D is going for $489 at Microcenter. The middle child 3D V-Cache part launched at $599 just a few months back, but a lack of demand has led to a massive reduction in its selling price. However, at its current price, it’s a solid gaming and content creation part. It’s slightly slower than the 7800X3D in gaming but much faster in rendering and video editing. Concerning the 7950X3D, it’s slightly slower in everything.
