The survey shows that the price of AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors is declining
In the past year or so, there has been a widespread supply shortage in the semiconductor industry, and there has been a huge gap between supply and demand. AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors will inevitably be affected, and they have been in short supply since their launch. Constrained by TSMC’s 7nm process capacity, wire bonding capacity, and insufficient ABF carrier boards, the Ryzen 5000 series processors have seen high prices and hard-to-find stocks during the period from the end of last year to the beginning of this year.
After unremitting efforts, the supply of Ryzen 5000 series processors has gradually returned to normal in the past few months, and the prices have been declining. According to VideoCardz, now processors based on the Zen 3 architecture are easily available, as can be seen through the price trends of retailers in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union, Ryzen 5000 series processors can not only be sold at the official recommended retail price, but there may even be discounts in actual transactions.
- AMD Ryzen 5 5600X – Launch price £289.99 – Current Price £245.99
- AMD Ryzen 7 5800X – Launch Price £428.99 – Current Price £354.79
- AMD Ryzen 9 5900X – Launch price £529.99 – Current Price £450.00
- AMD Ryzen 9 5950X – Launch price £749.99 – Current Price £718.88
In the remaining months of this year, Intel will release the 12th-generation Core series processors (Alder Lake-S), and AMD should launch a Zen 3 architecture desktop processor with 3D vertical cache (3D V-Cache) technology, which may be called the Ryzen 5000XT series. Whether it is to make way for its own new products or to suppress its competitors before launching new products, AMD has a good reason to lower prices during this period of time to seize the market as much as possible while guaranteeing supply.
