AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs have seen major price drops in Europe with the flagship now 200 Euros cheaper than its launch pricing.
Price Drop or Market Price Adjustment? AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs See Significant Price Drops Versus Launch
According to reports from tech outlets HardwareLuxx and Computerbase, retailers are offering significant price cuts on the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs. These price cuts are not officially by AMD itself but by their partners selling the chips. This is great news for European users who were planning to build a PC with the latest AMD CPUs because the launch prices for these chips weren't that great in the region.
For example, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X launched at a price of 849 Euros in the region followed by 669 Euros for the Ryzen 9 7900X, 479 Euros for the Ryzen 7 7700X, & 359 Euros for the Ryzen 5 7600X. These prices were obviously much higher than what users were paying in the US and the biggest reason for such a huge difference was the VAT which is around 20% and applied to all tech products in the European market.
