Performance reviews of the Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake-S" processors are out, and spell big trouble for AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors at their current prices. Until the company can refresh these processors, it must content with price-cuts. Early signs of these are already out. American retailer Micro Center just put out a sub-$300 price for the Ryzen 7 5800X, at $299. Prices of the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 5 5600X remain unchanged, at $500 and $280, respectively, but it's only conceivable that these too will change. At current prices, the Core i7-12700K offers 15% higher performance per Dollar than the Ryzen 7 5800X.

You've got to be joking. Heathcare comes to mind. Looks to me like the US is paying for the rest of the planet. Ask your government to lower your VAT.

Prices were slipping on these over the last couple months already. I suspect it’s not just an Adler Lake response, but we might also be seeing some early holiday pricing. 2 years ago around this time I recall buying a 2700X for $129 on a seasonal sale from MC.

Still, Ryzen is already going to be a cheaper platform due to maturity, so AMD would be smart to play that angle right now. They’ve had a year to get a return on their Zen 3 investment, and now Zen3 can serve as a disruption to Intel through cheaper pricing.

They don't have any other choice do they now? They'll also have to make way for the Zen3d chips in the lineup so at least a minor price adjustment is to be expected ~ unless of course they go full Intel & kill the last gen completely :slap:

Funny how a single retailer(across the globe) discounts(heavily) single SKU and entire tech media reports of supposed price cuts on CPUs while remaining product stack has pricing unchanged since launch day(thanks to pandemic).
The sky is falling!

Media nowadays want to be the first to post such things so will jump the gun and speculate on thin facts.

Microcenter has for a long time been the dumping ground for overstock for both AMD and Intel. I've found that they are generally a harbinger of future prices.

Checked prices in my country after reading this, yup nothing to see here 5600X is still 370-390$. 'VAT included'
Obviously I knew that nothing changed just did it out of curiosity. :laugh:


Alder Lake is not yet available here in shops so can't compare prices.

Cheaper till you put the cost of a Z690 Mobo and DDR5 then that price performance goes out the window.....

5600X in Aus has always been cheaper then the 12600K.....
5800X is cheaper then the 12700K.....but no way have I seen any price cuts on it at 300US/407AU, wouldnt that be nice!!

and before you ask the VAT is 10% which was only introduced a few yrs ago.

You Americans and your prices lol whatever! Doesnt translate to the rest of the planet sadly.

Neither does your 10% as i am pretty sure a lot in the UK and EU are paying way more than that.

Norway is 25% tax for electronics.
Considering the prices for mobo, cpu and ram, Intel offering is not that good to be fair. Putting the minimal improvement, even for gaming, which is a matter of few %, the toll on the budget and other components is big and thus not really worth the money. At least that is my opinion.

Healthcare comes to your mind, and the US is paying for the rest of the planet now? An interesting twist, to say the least.

Did you know VAT is used to pay for healthcare and subsequently reinforced the much higher vaccination rates in, say, the EU? Who's paying whát now? :confused:o_O:kookoo: Anyway...

Your comment makes no sense.
Exactly.

At a vastly discounted rate than in the US. No worries, it's my own government's fault.
