Computex 2017 - AMD unleashed their new ThreadRipper CPUs at Computex, offering a full stack of multi-threaded processors with up to 16C/32T, and 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes through the new X399 chipset - but, Ryzen 7 pricing is now dropping big time.

AMD's current Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X, and Ryzen 7 1700 have all had price drops - and are in effect on Amazon and Newegg. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X was $49 and can now be found for $459, while the Ryzen 7 1700X was $399 and is now just $349, while the Ryzen 7 1700 drops from $329 to just $299.

I thought it would be Intel that would drop the prices on their Core range of processors, but this puts AMD in a great position ahead of the big launch for ThreadRipper.
