AMD's top Ryzen 5000 series processor has dropped to a notably low price at Newegg. Today users can take home the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X for $740, $60 below its usual price of around $800.
Newegg currently has the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X marked down to $750 until September 3rd. To get the $740 price, users must use promo code 93XRW35 before checking out. This is a limited offer and it’s not clear for how long it will be made available.
AMD's flagship Ryzen 5000 series chip, the 5950X is based on AMD Zen 3 CPU architecture and uses an AM4 socket. It comes with two fully enabled CPU die chiplets, adding up to a total of 16 cores and 32 usable threads. And of course, like all Ryzen 5000 CPUs, it supports PCIe 4.0 when used on a suitable motherboard.
According to the official specifications from AMD, it has a base clock speed of 3.4 GHz but can reach 4.9 GHz with max boost. That said, we've reviewed the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and have managed to squeeze out over 5 GHz. Power users can also expect to squeeze out a decent bit more on the chip's integrated memory controller than the official rating of DDR4-3200.
