The AMD Ryzen X3D series of CPUs has been popular among PC gamers since its release. Newegg is currently offering discounts on two of the most popular processors in this series. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D for the AM4 socket with a free motherboard is available for $319, while its next-gen upgrade, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D for the AM5, is priced at $364. Customers can use the coupon code YPCMDP629 to receive an additional $5 off on the 7800X3D deal.
The 7800X3D upgrade is particularly exciting due to Newegg’s combo pricing with various X670E motherboards and DDR5 RAM, which can result in significant savings on a full desktop upgrade. AMD has also committed to supporting the AM5 socket for at least another couple of CPU cycles, making it a cost-effective long-term investment.
The 5800X3D is also a strong option for upgrades on older AMD-based systems, with the AM4 socket and its inexpensive DDR4 memory providing great value. When combined with a recent mid-level or better graphics card, it can handle AAA games with ray tracing or achieve high refresh rates on monitors.
Both processors offer impressive performance for PC gaming and media applications, making them attractive options for those looking to upgrade their systems.
