AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X Become Bestsellers as Cheaper B650/X670 Motherboards Launch

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors launched fairly lousy, with lukewarm sales and limited motherboard options. Intel’s 13th Gen CPUs were faster and more affordable courtesy of a wide variety of B770 and Z790 offerings. Over the past couple of months, Team Red has been running several campaign bundles to offset the high going price of the Raphael chips. These efforts have started to bear fruit as the Ryzen 9 7950X/7900X is now among the bestselling chips at various retailers:

Starting with Microcenter, the Ryzen 9 7900X takes the top spot at $431, a discount of $120 off its sticker price. The Intel Core i9-13900K is the second bestseller with a going price of $560. The Core i7-13700K comes in at #3 at a much more affordable $387. The Ryzen 7 7700X at $337 is the fourth most popular processor.

At B&H, the Core i9-13900KS is the most popular SKU, followed by the Ryzen 5 5500 and the Ryzen 9 7950X at #2 and #3, respectively. The latter is going for $571, $130 less than its launch price of $699.

BestBuy sees the same ranking structure, with the Core i7-13700K taking the second spot, while the Ryzen 9 7950X holds the second and third rank. It’s worth noting that despite the name “BestBuy”, the prices are substantially higher than the other stores.

The Ryzen 9 7900X3D is the most popular processor at SCAN UK, followed by the 7950X and the 7900X. The Zen 4 parts overtake their predecessors in the popularity chart for the first time.

Last but now least, we have the Mindfactory (Germany) numbers from TechEpiphany. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D retains the top spot for the nth week, followed by the Ryzen 7 5700X and 5600 at #2 and #3, respectively. The Ryzen 9 7900X, with 80 sold units, holds the 16th rank, while the Ryzen 7 7700X makes it to the 6th spot with over 200 sold units.
