August 29, 2023 by our News Team

AMD's Ryzen 7 7800X3D gaming CPU has been significantly discounted to $354, offering 8 Zen4 cores and 120W power consumption, and is now the leading gaming CPU for the AM5 platform.

  • Significant price drop, now available for just $354
  • $95 discount from its original launch price of $449
  • Doesn't require high-end motherboards, potentially allowing gamers to save costs

AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D gaming CPU has received a significant price drop, now available for just $354. Previously priced at $384, this 8-core processor is now listed on Walmart’s website, with free shipping included. It’s worth noting that this deal is courtesy of Newegg, despite the purchase being made through Walmart.

Although the Walmart listing does not mention the inclusion of the Starfield coupon, which means no game will be bundled with the purchase, the $354 price tag is already the lowest ever for this processor in the US. This represents a substantial $95 discount from its original launch price of $449. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is the latest AMD desktop CPU to be released globally and is only three months old.

It remains uncertain whether AMD will launch a 6-core variant of this CPU, as they did with the 5600X3D, which arrived almost two years after the initial Zen3-X3D series release. However, if other retailers follow suit and offer similar discounts, it could solidify the 7800X3D’s position as the leading gaming CPU for the AM5 platform in the near future.

One advantage of the X3D series is that it doesn’t require high-end motherboards, potentially allowing gamers to save costs by opting for the B650 or A620 series, as long as they support high TDP SKUs. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D features 8 Zen4 cores and has a default power consumption of 120W (with a peak of 163W).
