Hot Tech Deals: The Already Affordable AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Is Now $30 Cheaper At Amazon
Are you looking to upgrade your PC? You're in luck because Amazon is slashing $30 off the original retail price of the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processors. From an already affordable price of $499.99, the online retail site is offering the high-end AMD chip for only $469.99 each.
The Ryzen 7 1800X is AMD's highest-end processor right now. It was made to rival Intel's own high-end chips. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X comes with eight cores ad 16 threads which allow the processor to clock in at a speed of 3.60 GHz and have an overwhelming 95W TDP.
In comparison, Intel's Core i7-6900K Skylake processor also has eight cores and 16 threads but has a base clock speed of 3.20 GHz and a TDP of 140W. For almost the same features and even better base clock speed, the Ryzen 7 is so much cheaper for half the prize of its Intel counterpart which sells for $1,021 at Amazon. With so many savings at hand, enthusiasts have more to spend on other components for their PC.
Despite the overwhelming performance of the Ryzen 7, it still slightly pales in comparison to the Intel Core i7 CPU in terms of gaming. However, AMD CEO Lisa Su has already indicated that the issue is only temporary and will eventually be fixed as developers get to spend more time with the CPUs. As a matter of fact, Su mentioned that around 300 developers at the time were already working on optimizing games for the Ryzen 7 processor.
As PC World stressed, the $30 price slash to the inexpensive yet top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is arguably one of the best tech deals we've had in a long while. If the lack of gang power is not the big of an issue, then PC builders are better off taking advantage of this deal while it is still being offered.
