Newegg is offering AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPU for $629.99 on their Ebay store, which is $70 less than the regular price in the USA. However, the CPU is listed for $699.99 on Newegg's main site. This discount is the lowest ever price for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, which has only been on the market for two months. Only four units have sold in the past 24 hours, and there is a "limited quantity" available for purchase.
TPU's February review of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D was positive, but the high price was a point of contention. This weekend's discount provides potential buyers with extra value, with the per core price dropping just under $40 and the per thread cost being slightly south of $20. The Ryzen 7000X3D series has had some issues since late April, with some owners reporting hardware burnouts and AMD working on fixes. It is possible that Newegg is attempting to sell surplus stock due to recent publicity affecting buyer perception.
