AMD and its partners have discounted Ryzen and Threadripper CPU prices, making it the best time to upgrade


AMD and its CPU retailers have started to reduce the price tag of its Ryzen and Threadripper processor family. A high-end CPU upgrade would be most welcome for buyers that do processor-intensive work and the price cut of these chips mean that affordability of these products will be within their grasp a bit more.

However, not all AMD processors are going to be discounted. Still, even some of them featuring smaller price tags than before means that Intel is going to have to come up with something better down the road or risk losing more ground to its only competitor in the consumer processor market.
