One of AMD's Best CPUs for Gaming, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, is now on sale for just $556 making it cheaper than the standard 7950X. The massive price discount is available right now on Amazon and Newegg, with supplied coupon codes from both vendors. On Newegg, the code is FTTPCU582, while on Amazon it's just a checkbox. But don't wait long, this deal could end at any time, so if you are in the market for a 7950X3D be sure to grab one as soon as possible.
At nearly $550, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D is one of the best deals of any high-tier CPU, offering better gaming performance than any of Intel's more expensive CPUs. At its price, the chip is just $5 more expensive than the Ryzen 9 7900X3D and is just $117 more expensive than the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, while being cheaper than the standard 7950X at the same time.
The 7950X3D is great for anyone looking to do a mixture of gaming and work with their system. With 16 cores and 32 threads, the chip has the capacity to chew through heavy multi-threaded workloads without a problem. But thanks to AMD's 3D-VCache technology, it is also capable of delivering bleeding-edge gaming performance rivaling the i9-13900K and Ryzen 7 7800X3D.
As an additional bonus, Newegg is offering price protection on the 7950X3D and any other products with FantasTech Price Protection for a limited time. To qualify, all you need to do is purchase an item (like the 7950X3D) featuring FantasTech's Price Protection badge between now and July 9th and Newegg will give you any additional price discounts that might come up until July 14th.

Sorry, but it was necessary.
Honestly.. I never understood why so many choices. You want to priorize gaming? 7800X3D (gaming processor). You want to priorize work? 7950X (productivity). You want to save? 7600X (cheapest). There.. 6 cores, 8 cores, 12 cores. it could even be called Ryzen 7006, 7008, 7012, and the boxes would be different colors like 7008 RYZEN GAMER or something like that lol. My two cents though .. 99% of the time you won't notice the difference between a 7600X and a 7800X3D when gaming. Their difference be like 60fps vs 72fps.. 200vs240fps.. you can't possible tell which is which in a blind test, no one can. But productivity.... you can definetly tell a 7600X from a 7950X. So I'm the end the choice of which processor in my opinion is: how much do you code, Photoshop etc? None? Go.for.the 5600X and use the extra on a better GPU. There. If you are rich and already got the 4090, then go for the 7800X3D why not, you want the ultimate ultra fps performer even if it doesn't matter again because at 4K and max settings again you won't tell from a 5600X for sure, but you want to spend to have "the feeling" of the ultimate machine yeah go for it. But that's it, there's no difference. I would argue right now the 5600X3D is the ultimate performer because.. at $200 it plays just like the 7800X3D 99% of your games, so go for the cheapest when you want a cpu JUST for gaming and be happyReply

That's an easy one. Binning. Because of the inability to make truly identical parts in semiconductor fabrication, CPUs and RAM modules all have different levels of defects. A 5600X, on a fundamental level, is just a defective 5950X that isn't too defective to work as a 5600X. And that leaves them with all sorts of CPUs in the middle. And it's better to be able to sell those as a 5700X or a 5800X or a 5900X for more money than fuse off more cores and go straight to a 5600X.
