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 remember the 1700 being $150 last November. Reply

    Newegg is also selling the 2700 for $149. The new Ryzen 3xxx processors look great, but these are some flaming deals on the old stock. Reply

    yeah for anything non gaming this is a bargain! though i went for the 3900x due to the extra cores Reply

    Amazon apparently realized having the 2700x and 2700 at the same price wasn't a good idea, the latter was droped to $187 as of when I checked. Reply

    Amazon they are pretty on top of things. I suspect they had more stock of the 2700x so until that even out they left the pricing like it was. Reply

    Bet AMD is doing the same, at these prices they barely are in black and the revenue is not proportional to their market share..
    Bet a day or another AMD will be constrained to rise the prices to have enough cash to compete
    with Intel in software arena. A cpu is not enough.in these days.

    Intel set the bar low for consumers before ryzen was around. Both companies are easily able to handle current profit margins even with relative price drops. As well you must factor in that AMD develops quite a bit less total silicon blueprints than intel does. As far as current products are concerned they are selling quite well and total R&D cost is MUCH lower than intel and this trend will probably continue in the future. Yes amd has to sell far less to be profitable compared to intel.

    Intel COULD throw their money around and sell products lower while bleeding cash to push amd around. But in the end they would rather use that capital to increase production capability for the future. Pushing amd out of the game doesnt benefit them. Both intel and amd keep x86 / x64 relevant in a market where other architectures could take over given opportunity and time.
