With that said, let's take a look at the deals that 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs have going on for themselves at various retail outlets:

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation CPU Deals (Amazon):

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation CPU Deals (Newegg):

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation CPU Deals (MicroCenter):

In addition to the discounts, most of the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs would also ship with a 3 month Xbox Game Pass which adds an additional $30 US value to the promotion. Once again the deals are said to last till the end of this month so you better hurry since these deals are so good that stock won't last for long. These deals also put immense pressure on Intel and it's yet to be released 10th Gen Core family which is expected to hit retail shelves in the coming month.

We can also tell that AMD is definitely clearing up stock before the arrival of its next-gen Zen 3 architecture-based Ryzen 4000 series processors which are expected to launch in Q4 2020  or end of this year. The Zen 3 launch is just two quarters away and it makes sense to clear Ryzen 3000 inventory to make room for the new family. We can even expect bigger price cuts and discounts in the coming month as we get close to Q4.
