AMD's Ryzen 5000 series pricing is getting lower

At launch, AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors were difficult to obtain. AMD could not supply enough processors to meet demand, and CPUs often sold for prices that were higher than AMD's MSRP. 

Today, PC builders will be glad to know that AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors are now readily available. What's even better is that these CPUs are now available at sub-MSRP prices, giving PC gamers better value than ever. 

In the case of AMD's Ryzen 9 5900X, the CPU's retail pricing is now around £80 lower than it was at launch, making the CPU £450. At launch, AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X was available for £428.99, with today's pricing being £354.79 on Amazon. The Ryzen 9 5900X's pricing is almost as low as the Ryzen 7 5800X's launch pricing, which is a big deal for anyone who's looking for a high-end 12-core processor. 

Sadly, price reductions for AMD's Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 9 5950X are much lower than their 8-core and 12-core counterparts. Even so, it is clear that the pricing of AMD's Ryzen processors is lower than before. Alongside better availability, AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors are also better priced. That said, AMD's Ryzen 9 5900X is selling out fast at some retailers, as it is now the value king of AMD's high-end Ryzen offerings. 

If you want to buy a new Ryzen processor, we suggest to check multiple retailers, as some offer better pricing than others. Below are some examples from Amazon. 

- 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

New Ryzen 5000 series CPUs

New to AMD's Ryzen Ryzen 5000 series product line is the company's Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G, offering users six cores and eight cores respectively with integrated Vega graphics. Sadly, we have not reviewed these processors yet, though they are more cost-effective than their iGPU-less Ryzen 5000 series counterparts. 

While these CPUs offer integrated graphics, they both feature less L3 Cache than their iGPU-less counterparts, which will limit their performance in some workloads (primarily gaming). That said, their integrated graphics will be valuable to anyone who currently cannot buy a graphics card.

- Ryzen 5 5600G - £239.99

- Ryzen 7 5700G - £329.00

Are New Zen 3 processors on the horizon? 

Earlier this year, AMD showcased enhanced Zen 3 processors that featured the company's innovative V-Cache technology, using 3D packaging technology to add 64MB of additional L3 cache to their Ryzen 5000 series CPU dies. 

This change will allow AMD to triple the L3 cache size of all of their Ryzen 5000 series (excluding the Ryzen 5000G series) CPUs. These enhanced Zen 3 processors will likely launch next year, potentially as Ryzen X 5XX0 XT models. These CPUs will offer users more L3 cache and more L3 Cache bandwidth than their predecessors and potentially ship with higher clock speeds. 

These enhanced processors will deliver enhanced performance across various workloads, giving AMD new top-tier processors for the consumer market. At Computex 2021, AMD reported that a V-Cache enhanced Ryzen 9 5900X processor delivered a 15% better gaming performance across various titles. These enhanced Zen 3 processors will likely launch in early 2022.
