AMD and some of its retail partners have started a new discount campaign involving AMD Ryzen and AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Select AMD CPUs will be available at reduced prices when bought from participating retailers till the end of March.

The new campaign involves two high-end Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X, all three Ryzen 7 (1700, 1700X, 1800X) models, three Ryzen 5 (1400, 1500X, 1600X) SKUs, and two Ryzen 3 (1200, 1300X) variants. In the U.S., four major retailers participate in AMD’s new promo sale: Amazon, Newegg, Micro Center, and Fry’s. Amazon UK and Amazon France also sell select AMD processors at reduced prices, but it is unclear whether AMD’s campaign is global, or only covers the U.S., Canada, UK, and France.

Exact discounts vary depending on the particular product. For example, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is available for $869, which is 13% off its $999 MSRP. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 7 1800X only got a 6% discount and is now available for $329 from Amazon. The Ryzen 3 1200 now is available for $94, the first time when a Ryzen-branded CPU is available for less than $100 in retail. See the table below for exact details and “buy” links.

Earlier this year AMD already slashed official prices of its Ryzen processors in order to better compete against Intel products. That price-cut was global and had an effect on all Ryzen SKUs, but only on one Threadripper model. By contrast, this time select retailers offer discounts on select Ryzen and two higher-end Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, so evidently AMD is trying to address the higher-end of the market with its discounts.

    I love it when people bring up Micro Center and their CPU prices. It seems like a great store, but it is hard to consider it when there are only 25 stores in the United States and the only way to get the amazing CPU prices are in store locations only. Until there are more locations or the deals can be picked up online it is hard to take under consideration. Reply

    refurbforless (which sells new items btw) on ebay has been selling the 1700 for like $250 for months now.

    I'm seeing some for $240, brand new, 99%+ sellers. These CPUs have been available for a lot less than this sale for a very long time.

    They make special prices only available in store because otherwise online competitors will also try to match and they can't compete in mass volume. Reply

    Yep, I got all my cpus from MicroCenter. I also love the fact that you get an additional $30 off why you purchase with motherboard. Last year for a few months after Ryzen released thye increased the combo deal to $50 and $100 off motherboard combo discount for Threadripper if I recall. Reply

    Preach brother!

    I got my 1700x from Micro Center in Oct 2017 for $230 minus $30 discount when combined with mobo! The 500gb Samsung Evo M.2 for $200 was a nice bonus when it was selling for $280 online ;o)

    All told I got $800 in hardware (online prices) for $540. Been a loyal fan ever since!!
