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 Ryzen 9 5950X: was $800, now $740 at Newegg

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.

Visit the AMD Ryzen 9 5950 product page at Newegg for additional details and be sure to use promo code 93XRW35 before checking out.

    The ads were bearable until Future or whoever decided every article needed the same Tom's Hardware video smack bang in the middle of every article (and a PiP when you scroll down) Reply

    Haven't you heard of ad blocking apps/extentions/vpns? Reply

    Considering sites get support from ads, I would think that you aught to sympathize not criticize. Reply

    Banner ads don't make money, and I will not subject myself to that for anyone. There are myriad ways to monetize content these days, their parent company just doesn't care. Reply

    Banner ads do make money. They make money even if you don't click on them. It's called cost per impression. Reply

    Banner ads pay money, it's based on CPM ($ per 1,000 impressions). For tech audience, the CPM will be usually higher so you don't need as much traffic but at the same time the adblock rate will be a lot higher. The alternative is to go to a subscription or paywall model if you want to pay to read the articles like The New York Times. Reply
