AMD’s powerful Ryzen 9 processors are ridiculously cheap

Looking for an upgrade? Amazon has a lot going for it with AMD Ryzen 9 CPUs. You can snag the Ryzen 9 5950X for $599, which is $200 less than its usual retail price. That’s the best price we’ve seen for this CPU since Black Friday; even then, it was only $80 off. Amazon is also selling the Ryzen 9 5900X for $449, which is more than 20% off its normal price and the cheapest it’s been in a while.

The discount addresses our main problem with having both the Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X, which is that they cost quite a bit. Both CPUs offer excellent all-around performance and power efficiency, but they’re a bit overkill for regular gaming builds. While they still lag Intel’s latest 12th-gen Core i9 chips like the Core i9 12900K and Core i5 12600K in gaming performance, the price cuts make them look more attractive and competitive.

The 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen 9 5950X is the top of the Ryzen 5000 lineup and is compatible with X570, B550 and A520 motherboards, as well as the previous generation X470 and B450. The cheaper Ryzen 9 5900X is a 12-core, 24-thread CPU, on par with the Core i9 10900K. It remains one of our favorite CPUs for its blend of gaming power, productivity, and creativity.

AMD’s Zen 3 architecture performance has been surprising since its launch in 2020, and it’s great to see team red close the gap with Intel in the CPU battle. Especially now that we pay less for this privilege.

If you’ve been waiting for an upgrade or had no luck finding stock, now is a good time to pick up a new CPU. Just check out our best gaming CPUs to see how these two Ryzen 9 chips stack up again for some of our favorite CPUs, including products from the Intel team.
