1st-Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs Are Going For Bargains As 3rd-Gen Ryzen CPUs Arrive – Ryzen 5 1600 For $79

Reports regarding AMD’s upcoming lineup of CPUs have been wandering the internet for a while. And as we dive deeper into 2019, it seems like the launch of AMD’s 3rd-gen Ryzen CPUs may be on the horizon. Amidst the whole hype that has been boiling in the PC hardware community, MicroCenter, a US-based computer hardware store, has begun showing its first effects of embracing AMD’s 3rd-Gen CPUs by offering Ryzen CPUs for bargains.

Thanks to a good catch by a Reddit user, AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600, Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 7 2700X are going some some insane prices. At this very moment, MicroCenter is offering the AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600, Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 7 2700X for $79, $ 159, and $269, respectively. Several stores have been sold out, with some of these stores requiring you to actually pick them up in-store. These are major discounts on CPUs that were once retailing for $99, 180, and $299 a few weeks ago.

Reports have even suggested that AMD’s new lineup of Ryzen CPUs could end up on store shelves as June, this year. Furthermore, these CPUs have been reported to come with several IPC improvements as well as host an addition of cores and threads to keep up with the computing demands and keep their pressure up on Intel. Reports sourced from Wccftech suggest the inclusion of an additional lineup as well, the Ryzen 9 category. These new CPUs from AMD would range in 6 cores and 12 threads with the Ryzen 3 lineup and would go all the way to 16 cores and 32 threads with the Ryzen 9 lineup of CPUs.

With the third generation of Ryzen CPUs on the horizon, AMD would continue to keep its pressure up on Intel thanks to its excellent performance and pricing strategy as we dive deeper into 2019.

With the launch now imminent, we can’t wait to see more of these deals pouring in as the Ryzen CPUs from 2017 and 2018 have served us well and are very respectable CPUs, even to this day. For the price, AMD’s definitely making a statement here. The question now is, can Intel hit back?
