AMD is capturing more market share from Intel with it’s Ryzen processors. The Ryzen 7 1800X has received good reviews among enthusiasts and is way less than the price of an Intel equivalent. AMD is now making it more worthwhile DIY a AMD PC system compared to an Intel with a slash in it’s processor’s pricing.
The price of Ryzen 7 1800X from $499 to $469, Ryzen 7 1700X from $399 to $349. The Ryzen 7 1700 (non-X), on the other hand, is now selling for $319, down from its launch price of $329. The two cuts may seem minor, but could help AMD turn up the heat against Intel’s Core i7-7700K (USD 339.99) and its upcoming “Kaby Lake-X” Core i7-7740X and i5-7640X.
