As a part of Prime Day deals at Amazon, AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 7 2700X processor is now available for $199.99, which is $129 off its original MSRP. This is the lowest price for this eight-core processor with an unlocked multiplier ever.

AMD’s Ryzen 7 2700X is the company’s former flagship CPU that has eight cores with SMT, features a 16 MB L3 cache and runs at 3.7 GHz default clocks. The chip also has two DDR4-2933 memory channels and is compatible with modern AM4 motherboards that are available widely and at different price points. Since we are talking about AMD’s X-series processor, it also has the company’s Extended Frequency Range (XFR) feature for an added performance boost.

Originally priced at $329, AMD’s Ryzen now costs $199.99 at Amazon because of its Prime Day deals, which is also the current price of the ‘slower’ AMD Ryzen 7 2700 that lacks the XFR capability.

    i know, it's such a shame on such a tech forum Reply

    I think Anand mentioned he was going to work on addressing that problem a few years ago. He hasn't said anything about it lately though. Reply

    It feels really like AJAX Comments for Drupal - even to the extent of having had a similar bug related to posting a second comment in the wrong place, which I eventually fixed in my own setup (was just referring to the wrong variable somewhere). But that has an edit feature, so I'm not sure why this wouldn't (maybe an early version). Reply

    If its that outdated, you'd think there would be well-known exploits that would permit easy edits and changes. That'd be a thing to look into, though I'm not advocating someone break the site nefariously, just that if there is a hole, it gets pointed out so that it forces AT to finally modernize the comment system.

    Nice, thanks for your response, I'll stick with the 3600 in that case. Reply

    I just bought mine yesterday actually, waiting on the MSI x570 gaming edge wifi to ship, out of stock/back order everywhere I see .. also added RRX 570 MK2 OC 8gb .. 32gb 3200 CL16 ram will also make it "snappier" than my in use Phenom II running 980+ speeds with 1866 class ( the new stuff will be more bandwidth and usable lower latency) paired with Sammy 970 pro 512gb and cooled Deepcool Gammaxx 400 in Fractal Design Define C.... I was VERY tempted to go 2700x route as it was within a few $ of the 3600, but, when price drop to $284 last night, I snagged the 3600 to only see it drop to $280 moments later...GRRRR...least I saved $50 odd on the GPU purchase I suppose.

    YOLO and cry later lol

    Define R6 usb C .. not Def C (have that, but the 3600 will go into the R6 win 10 pro and the PHII will go to the define C win 7 x64 ultimate Reply

    I went the other route. I was ready to jump on a 3600 a few times but just couldn't justify a $190 micro-ATX board for a mid-range build. Then I saw this Anand article of 2700X for $199, grab an reasonable ITX board and case. Since I only game on my Xbox one X, I went for mua-cores, mua-ha-ha. Reply

    Hey Phenom II :) I have a 965 myself still, and still game on it.

    3600 was $280? Wasn't that supposed to be retail $200? Did you buy the out-of-stock price from a third party seller?

    For most normal ppl, the 3600 is a much better buy at its MSRP of 200.

    Even though its only $150 for the 2700, the 3600 is much faster for anything not using 8 cores. When you factor in the motherboard purchase, worth it to pay the extra $50
