Specific market conditions can help make a good product better. That much is true of Ryzen 7 7800X3D. AMD’s next-gen successor to the hugely impressive 5800X3D has been on the receiving end of swift price cuts in an effort to stave off fierce competition from Intel, and ensuing logic is there’s no better solution for a gaming-first build.

At launch, a $449 street price and premium supporting motherboards muddied the argument, but fast forward to today and 7800X3D looks a far more tantalising proposition. Said chip is now available for $369 USD or £370 GBP, and the processor fluttering in and out of stock at Amazon UK serves as a sign of the chip’s popularity. If you’re in the US and able to travel to a nearby Micro Center, you can bag the CPU for as low as $349.99!

A great deal for enthusiast gamers and the arrival of Intel’s Core i9-14900K has done little to change that sentiment. Chipzilla’s all-singing, all-dancing CPU hits new heights with regards to productivity and multi-threaded prowess, yet when it comes to gaming alongside the world’s most powerful GPUs, AMD’s leaner, meaner and more affordable Ryzen 7 7800X3D continues to dominate the charts.

It’s a victory Team Red must be particularly proud of, as cache-laden X3D processors have succeeded in appealing specifically to the hearts and minds of die-hard gamers. Creating the de facto gaming CPU is no small feat, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D is about as close as it gets for a desktop PC.
