We are just around the corner for AMD's launch of its latest generation of Ryzen processors. In light of this upcoming launch, Amazon has discounted a bunch of Ryzen 2nd-gen processors. Interestingly, Ryzen 3 is not included, so this only covers Ryzen 5 and 7 right now. The discounts are also significant so you can download a new AMD Ryzen 7 2700 processor for just $ 200, a full $ 99 of the original listing price.
Other processors included in this campaign are Ryzen 5 2600, Ryzen 5 2600X, and Ryzen 7 2700X. We have confirmed these price drops to be present also in other markets, including the UK.
Are you going to buy the current generation of processors from AMD or keep up with 3xxx CPU's? It depends on whether you want to save big in the short term or pay off start launch prices for the latest tech. If you just put together a gaming rig or a PC that won't take advantage of the enhanced performance and other features that AMD has added to the new CPUs, it makes sense to save up to $ 99 on a brand new Ryzen 2xxx CPU. If you want the latest and the best, stay for a few days.
