Amazon deal: AMD 16-core Ryzen 7950X is back to its lowest price

Recently, there have been quite a few price drops on processors from both Team Red and Team Blue. Over on the Intel side, there were price drops for the 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S and 12th Gen Alder Lake-S models which are LGA1700 socket parts.

Meanwhile, on the AMD side, the discounts were for the older AM4 platform as well as the newer AM5 socket. On the AM4 side, the 5950X, 5900X, and 5800X had dropped, and on AM5, it was the 7900X3D. You can find all of them here.

In case you missed out on those, Amazon has dropped the price of the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X and it is back to its lowest ever today. The processor is selling at an excellent price of just ~$510 (buying link under the spec list below).

The major difference between these and the X3D parts is in the lack of 3D V-cache on the non-X3D CPUs. This means they are not the absolute best processors at gaming though you really don't notice the difference unless you are playing at CPU-bound settings.
