|Reducing the cost and disappearing from the shelves of products of the old generation with the release of new products is a completely standard practice in the industry, whether we are talking about smartphones or processors. But this may not work for Ryzen 3000 processors. |
The fact is that the official premiere of the Ryzen 5000 is just over a week away, but AMD has not yet offered clear discounts on the Ryzen 3000, although this is standard practice for clearing warehouses before they receive new-generation solutions. In addition, AMD recently updated the Ryzen 3000 line in the summer (Matisse Refresh models were released), and it would be very strange to remove these processors from the shelves now. This state of Affairs leads industry analysts to believe that the Ryzen 3000 and Ryzen 5000 will be sold in parallel. In this case, you should not count on any crazy discounts for the younger line, while the Ryzen 5000 will be positioned as a separate line, standing a step or two higher. Yes, a couple of Ryzen 3000 models have become more affordable in recent days, but this is not the level and volume of discounts that you can expect when changing CPU generations. This is more like a natural decrease in cost during the product lifecycle.
