Deal | AMD Ryzen 7 7700X drops to lowest price ever thanks to 26% discount on Amazon
In contrast to a sinfully expensive graphics card upgrade to one of Nvidia's RTX 4000 GPUs, gamers who would like to replace their aging processor do not necessarily have to spend an arm and a leg in order to enjoy higher frame rates in recent CPU-limited titles such as the well-received Hogwarts Legacy. Especially AMD fans can now benefit from a decent deal for the quick Ryzen 7 7700X.
To be more precise, the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X octa-core processor with a base clock of 4.5 GHz, maximum boost of 5.4 GHz and 32MB of L3 Cache is now available for US$295 on Amazon. In order to get this reduced sale price, please manually check the box for the US$44.01 coupon on the product page of the Zen 4 chip. Moreover, this desktop CPU deal offers a discount of 26 percent or US$105 in relation to the official MSRP, and it also undercuts Amazon's lowest price thus far for the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X according to the price tracker from Camelcamelcamel.
Prospective buyers should definitely be aware that the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X requires a compatible AM5 motherboard, which can make the entire CPU upgrade quite a bit more pricey for AMD users who already own an AM4 mainboard. Furthermore, this processor has an elevated TDP of 105 watts instead of the 65 watts of the slightly slower non-X version of this high-end chip. For detailed benchmarks, please also refer to our comprehensive review. Arguably, this desktop CPU deal on Amazon is one of the better choices in the US$300 price range, although patient gamers can certainly wait until prices of these Zen4 processors drop even further.
