Computer Alliance store on ebay has some good prices on ryzen cpu's when combining with the 20% coupon (22% for ebay plus)
Ryzen 5 5600X
Ryzen 7 5700X
Original Coupon Deal
Would suggest buying 7500f if you are getting a new rig.
I don't think you can get a retail AMD Ryzen 5 7500F. Most are OEM Tray or part of a pre-built.
Aww man, I just wanna try find a sub-$200 5600x
Unless you need to urgently upgrade, wait for the 5500X3D and 5700X3D
what about 5600x3d?
Sold exclusively at microcentre in USA.
my bad, lol, I meant 5800x3d, why it was omitted?
@nuker: Perhaps 5700x3d and 5500x3d will likely be priced competitively.
However, will they require latest AM4 AGESA (AGESA 1.2.0.B) or an upcoming AGESA? The latest version of AM4 AGESA contains a vulnerability fix (inception vulnerability fix). However, that fix reduces AMD processor performance in some cases. It would be best if those 2 CPUs work with AGESA 1.2.0.A (the version before the inception vulnerability fix is applied).
AMD's Inception Fix Causes Up to 54% Performance Drop. However, some of the common tasks are actually faster. I doubt we care about database performance. No games tested so it is unclear whether that fix actually affects gaming performance.
Valid, but we still know very little about these in terms of pricing and availability. We don't know when or even if they'll be available or how much they'll cost.
Eg. the 5600X3D was a limited run from Microcenter in the US only.
Maybe if the 5900X was down around $400 I might go for that. It's sitting at about $490-$550 after discounts. I tend to do more processor intensive stuff than gaming.
Me too, looking for a 5900X deal, though these CPUs are decent bang for buck for sure.
I have a 3600 and buying a 6700xt. Would something like this be a good upgrade or worth waiting to see if the 5800x3d goes on sale?
Not able to find the exact info you need.
How bad will a Ryzen 5 3600 bottleneck a RX 6700 XT with link pointing to conclusion section.
It compares 6700XT on Ryzen 5 3600 vs Ryzen 9 5900X on 1080p gaming. The conclusion indicates about a 30% bottleneck. 5800x3d will increase that gap even further. However, that's 1080p gaming. Also, another interesting question will be what if you use the money for the CPU upgrade towards a better GPU?
Nah I got a good deal on a watercooled 6700 so that will be it for now. Hoping for mid-to-high settings at 1440p.
Have to upgrade PSU and Mobo at the same time, so budget is limited. I might just hop along with the 3600 for a bit and see how it goes.
Don't support price jacking.
Most retailers have the 5600x for $245-$250, including CA themselves on their website.
5700x is $269 on their website compared to $329 on eBay.
Maybe if I ask really nicely they'll give me 22% off the $269 5700X for being dishonest! I'd probably buy that right now for $210…
