While upgrading to the new AMD Ryzen 7000 series is tempting, due to the new AM5 platform, due to sky-high prices, not everyone is on board with next-Gen this year. AMD might have realized this and has silently slashed prices on its only 3D V-Cache chip, the Ryzen 5800X3D.
AMD Ryzen 5800X3D, compared to its predecessor, is also an 8 cores 16 threads processor, but what separates it from the regular Ryzen 5800x is its massive L3 Cache of 96 MB compared to 32 MB. The huge L3 Cache, alongside support for older hardware and cheaper DDR4 memory, makes it a must-have option for gamers.
AMD initially launched the Ryzen 5800X3D with an MSRP of $449 but has slashed the price to $329. With the new discounted price tag from AMD, it might not make sense to upgrade to the new AM5 platform, but for gamers who still want to take advantage of the IPC advantage without upgrading to a new platform or memory, AMD Ryzen 5800X3D is the way to go.
Alongside the Ryzen 5800X3D, AMD has also cut down prices on its other Ryzen 5000 series chips, which includes the Ryzen 5800x and 5600x going for $250 and $159, respectively.
The new discounted prices on the Ryzen 5000 series might be a great move from AMD, but it might also hurt its new AM5 platform. Furthermore, the red team is also doing good against its competitor, where a recently shared tweet from our trusted source has shown the Ryzen 5800X3D to be the best-selling chip last week, selling 1400 units and scoring the top position.

AM5 platform from AMD might not look like a tempting platform, but AMD is well known for its platform longevity. So, it might not be such a bad idea in the future to upgrade to the AM5 platform. When AMD comes up with cheaper boards, DDR5 memory also comes down in price.
