AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Hits All-Time Low Of $130 With This Smoking Hot Deal

Ryzen 7 2700X 2
We've tracking pricing of AMD's previous generation enthusiast flagship CPU for quite a while. The Ryzen 7 2700X has an MSRP of $319.99 when it launched over a year, but street prices fell to $199.99 prior to the launch of the Ryzen 3000 family this Summer. 

Early last month, the Ryzen 2700X hit a low $159.99, and today another big discount is taking the processor down to the lowest price we've seen to date. Micro Center is currently selling the chip for a low $129.99. This price is for a retail boxed processor, and you can save an additional $30 off that price if you bundle it with an eligible motherboard.

As with previous Ryzen deals from Micro Center, we should warn you that this deal is not available for shipping, and is instead only available for either in-store pickup, or by visiting the store and grabbing a Ryzen 7 2700X off the shelf. Micro Center has 25 locations in the United States spread out among 15 states (you can see the available store locations here). 

When the Ryzen 7 2700X first debuted last year, it was a force to be reckoned with thanks to its Zen+ 12nm Pinnacle Ridge microarchitecture. The 8-core/16-thread processor has a base clock of 3.7GHz, a boost clock of 4.3GHz and a TDP of 105 watts.

The new flagship of AMD's enthusiast-class processor family is now the Zen 2-based, 7nm Ryzen 9 3950X. We reviewed this 16-core/32-thread monster yesterday (read Marco’s review here) and it not only blows the Ryzen 7 2700X out of the water, but it also one of the most potent chips that you can purchase for less than $1,000 while maintaining the 105W TDP.
