AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Slashed to $319 on Newegg

US retailer Newegg put AMD's flagship socket AM4 processor, the Ryzen 7 1800X, at a flash-sale price of USD $319.99, a staggering 36% discount from its list price of $499. The retailer has the second-fastest Ryzen 7 1700X priced at $279.99 (list price $399). The limited-period prices make the two chips extremely competitive against the Core i7-8700K, which has spotty availability, and is being sold above its list price, at $414 (MSRP: $359), while the Core i5-8700 (non-K) goes for $359 (MSRP: $303), and the Core i5-8600K (out of stock) at $299 (MSRP: $257). Prices of Intel's 8th generation Core "Coffee Lake" processors are inflated across the board, on account on supply issues, and its performance leadership over AMD Ryzen series.

You can bring that 1700X down to $259.99 with promo code EMCBBCB22.

The 1600/1600X are going for $189/199... which is also a good deal

Will that work on any of the other Ryzen chips?

Don't know about you guys but I feel no urge with my perfectly capable i5 2500. Of course if your pockets are deep enough to buy 1080 Ti/Titan Xp then this CPU will become a major bottleneck but with my GTX 1060 6GB I feel perfectly served with my six years old processor and sixteen gigs of RAM.

Single threaded performance for Zen/Coffee Lake chips is barely higher, so, perhaps, next year, when we get Cannon Lake (10nm)/Zen 2.0 (~12nm? 4.5GHz?) I will finally update.

While it is amazing, I think there is more to this price decrease then a simple Sale.

Ryzen+ on 12nm is coming, something tells me they want to sell as much of current Ryzens as possible before release of new edition.

Personally sitting on my i7-4770k @4.5 and waiting for Ryzen+. Lets see what they have to offer, and if it will be able to reach 4.5ghz - that will be a no brainer upgrade for me.

Where I buy my stuff from, you can get an R7 1700x for less than a 7700k. It's interesting how AMD's products are always treated like second tear stuff, even by AMD themselves. You've got an 8-core CPU that's selling for less than a 4-core CPU from Intel.

How long has it been since AMD's low-energy CEO promised to fix Ryzen's gaming performance? The i3 8350k at 4GHz beats the 1500X at 4GHz and even the 1800X at 4GHz in games by some 15% to 35%. Ryzen is some 10% behind Coffee Lake when it comes to IPC, but it does far worse in games.

Anyways, there was no need to release 8-core $350 CPUs for the masses. These 2-CCX 8-core CPUs suffer from serious memory and L3 cache lateness. Turns out the Infinity Fabric logic is placed between the CPU cores and the uncore (i/o, L3 cache, PCI-express controller, memory controller, etc.) which causes big delays when CPU cores inside a CCX try to communicate with components outside the CCX. This is causing at least many of the performance problems that Ryzen suffers from.

Xeon X5670 and 7870 here. I don't demand much more for performance. I will be eying deals on larger SSDs. Perhaps even one for my PS4 pro.

Agreed, there has got to be more here that meets the eye....

My theory is that they know they're in a great market position with the Price/Performance ratio balance again. They have been building up a ton of inventory and want to now capitalize on their favorable market standing. Plus it's the holiday season.

They need to stop lowering prices on Ryzen, it is mocking the beautiful relationship we had, back when Ryzen was unreleased and she was the future savior of the PC world. All these articles about worse performance than Intel must also cease and desist - it's just NOT TRUE. My beloved Ryzen is the best thing ever made, and all you cyber-bullies better just quit it! You're just jealous! The internet told me so! I can't believe this is happening!

If you're still clinging onto AM3+, this isn't a bad deal tbh:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113347&cm_re=AMD_FX-_-19-113-347-_-Product

Just make sure your motherboard supports it.
That is a good price, and for the money they perform well. However, effective cooling is needed, assuming of course the user wants a space heat for a CPU @ 220W TDP.

No, thanks. With 144hz monitors fully on the market (and 240hz even), makes no sense to me to buy a cpu that according to GamerNexus testing can´t mantain minimum 144fps in any modern game. While i7 8700 for little more sustains 200fps on any engine.

Improve those clocks and then we talk.

Single threaded performance of Zen/Coffee Lake is barely higher than Sandy bridge?

really?

If 20-30% is suddenly called "barely" he's probably right.

I had to mix it up. My wife complains about things like how old the lock screen on my phone is (it's ~3 years old and transferred over from the last phone.) :laugh:
