Lower Ryzen 7000X prices will last until mid-January

If you’re considering buying a new Ryzen under the tree, there’s no need to panic. The price action that AMD started a week before the so-called Black Friday, AMD has scheduled for mid-January, according to YouTube channel sources. So it may end shortly after CES 2023.

Ryzen 5 7600X$299$249
Ryzen 7 7700X$399$349
Ryzen 9 7900X$549$474
Ryzen 9 7950X$699$574

However, it is not precisely determined how the situation will look from mid-January. Hypothetically, three options are possible: The price will return to the original level / the reduced price will remain / the price will be set between these two values. Personally, I would consider the third option to be the most meaningful, but AMD will probably evaluate the situation according to what effect the price adjustment had on increasing sales. However, it is quite difficult to evaluate from the point of view of an external observer, since sales statistics from/to a user-selectable date are not available anywhere. Amazon’s sales chart doesn’t tell us much either, as the Ryzen 9 7900X / 7950X models were repeatedly sold out (i.e. briefly unavailable) during the event, so their position fluctuated quite a lot. If it were possible to draw any conclusion from this, then perhaps only that it makes no sense to reduce the price to the level at which the goods are sold out (demand exceeds supply).

Considering the leaked prices of the upcoming 65W Ryzen 7000s, it would make sense if for the Ryzen 5 7600X and Ryzen 7 7700X AMD would set the new prices ~$20-30 above the promotional price, i.e. $269-279, otherwise the price difference compared to 65W processors will be quite negligible.

The prices of 65W processors that appeared in November may not be a leak, but rather a calculation. As MLID indicated, AMD told wholesalers the prices at which it would sell processors to them, not the recommended prices that they should consider when selling. The November prices ($229 for the Ryzen 5 7600, $329 for the Ryzen 7 7700 and $429 for the Ryzen 9 7900) will thus be MSRP estimates (recommended prices) rather than definitive numbers. According to MLID, MSRPs can range between $x09 and $x49, based on purchase prices. So while amounts ending in “29” are right in the middle and therefore quite likely, they are not 100% certain yet and may vary by $10-20.

The release of the 65W Ryzen 7000 is expected on January 10, and the announcement will probably take place during CES.
