It looks like AMD has directed their retail partners to offer major price cuts for their entire Ryzen 5000 AM4 Desktop CPU lineup including Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and the Ryzen 5 5600X.

The new deals aren't specific to one retailer but almost all major US and Canadian retailers have issued price cuts across AMD's entire Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPU portfolio including the Vermeer & Cezanne parts. The price cuts could be a response to Intel's 12th Gen Alder Lake CPU lineup that has started crunching away major DIY market share from AMD worldwide as reported last week.

Now, these are some seriously impressive deals if you consider the value of each AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPU respective to its 12th Gen Alder Lake competitor. At $599 US, the Ryzen 9 5950X more or less is the same price as the 12900K while offering more cores and threads. The Ryzen 9 5900X is even better value considering it offers more threads than the 12700K with a slightly higher price.

AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X at $299 US makes it a well-rounded competitor to the Core i5-12600K while the Ryzen 5 5600X at $229 US is now right there with the Core i5-12400 though the F variant still offers better value.

The Ryzen 5000G SKUs are also more affordable than ever, offering great GPU performance aimed at budget users who don't have the funds to get decent discrete graphics cards yet. Overall, these deals will make sure that AMD's DIY CPU market share remains steady till the launch of the Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 lineup which is planned for a Q3 2022 launch as per rumors. The 5800X3D is also rumored to launch this month so we can see a further drop in the prices of the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X parts by the end of this month.
