Finding a good deal on an AMD CPU hasn't been easy this year but today we've managed to come across one. The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X has dropped to one of the lowest prices we've seen for it so far this year.

It's been listed around $329 as of late but recently dropped to $309 at Newegg. Using promo code 93XQY28 during checkout will take the price down to $304.

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: was $329, now $304 at Newegg

This is a mid-to-high grade processor capable of much more than just browsing. When we reviewed the processor in 2019, we recognized the series with our Silver Editor's Choice for its performance and power consumption.

The Ryzen 7 3700X is a Zen 2 architecture CPU that offers a total of 8 cores and 16 threads. Its base clockspeed is 3.6GHz, and when turboing it can reach speeds as fast as 4.4GHz. The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X supports PCIe 4.0 and connects using an AM4 socket.

These processors can run a little warm so this edition comes with a Wraith Prism stock cooler. This makes it easier to get up and running out of the box but an aftermarket cooler may be desired for for users who plan to push the CPU beyond its normal specifications.

Visit the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X product page at Newegg for purchase options.

    Also on Amazon for a buck less, at $308, for anyone who wants to avoid Newegg. Reply

    (Well, $5 higher after Newegg's promo code, but the Newegg price expires shortly) Reply

    Been $279 at Microcenter for a while, with plenty of stock. Have to buy it in person, though. Reply

    .. not to mention their additional $20 off discount with mobo. Ironically, the 3600 went up to $219 after being at $199 for a long time. Maybe because it was selling very well for everyone that demand has exceeded supply more now for that SKU. And MC finally got a good supply of 5900x However, prices haven't come down to where they were near the end of 2019 ($259 for 3700X) and I think we probably won't ever get back to that point, with real inflation and constant supply issues.

    ""...end of 2019 ($259 for 3700X)...""

    Sweet ... I got in for $280 last November for my Ryzen 7 3700X. I'm pickled tink.

    I've used the Wraith Prism with a 3100X, which while running 4 fewer cores is still nominally a 65W CPU, and I have to say I was very impressed with both the acoustics and the aesthetics. I imagine it would get a little louder under load with a 3700X, but I think the vast majority of users would probably get by just fine with it. It's effectively a ~$30 discount over an Intel equivalent. Reply

    Wow, a whole $20 off MSRP 2 years after launch, what a deal! Reply

    I mean, these are the days where I could sell my *used* mid-range GPU for $100 bucks more than what I paid 4 years ago. Reply

    Got mine a couple months ago.

    It was $299 when I put it in my cart, $329 by the time I actually bought it.
