AMD released Ryzen 7000 just two weeks ago, but the company is paying special attention to its Ryzen 5000, offering great gaming combos for only the previous generation of CPUs.This new game deal features an all-new PC port Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection Appears on October 19th.
It takes just a game Pre-purchase on Steam for $49.99 just now. With Ryzen 5000 prices continuing to drop, this could be a good buy for gamers looking to upgrade this game and their CPUs. Includes 7 5800X3D, 5800X, 5700X, Ryzen 5 5600X, 5600, 5500, and 5400. But Beware: AMD’s Ryzen 5000 G-Series APUs do not do Qualify for this game bundle.
This game collection includes new PC ports of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Uncharted 4, in particular, was one of his highest-rated games of all time when it released in 2016, despite being released exclusively on the PlayStation. Now PC gamers can dive into his Uncharted world for the first time and explore its acclaimed storyline and gameplay.
It’s interesting that AMD is limiting this combo deal to just the previous generation Ryzen 5000 series processors. Adding to this combo deal he has parts from both the Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 7000 series combined seems to make sense. However, AMD seems to have another plan in mind.
It seems that AMD is trying to sell off as much of their Ryzen 5000 inventory as possible in order to increase sales of Ryzen 7000. It’s no secret that Ryzen 7000 sales have been sluggish. 70% plunge in Germany, Just two weeks after the initial Ryzen 7000 release. I don’t have the numbers here in the US, but I would expect the trend to be similar around the world.
AM5’s extremely high platform cost is at least part of the problem with Ryzen 7000. Current motherboard prices start at $169 for the cheapest B650 motherboard you can find, with good B650 or X670 series motherboards hovering in the $250-$350 range.
Also, AMD’s latest generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D will directly compete with the Ryzen 7000 parts. It has similar, if not equal, gaming performance to the newer chips and runs on much cheaper B450, B550 motherboards and cheaper DDR4 memory.
Perhaps when Ryzen 5000 inventories start dwindling, Ryzen 7000 will become a more attractive proposition.
