Strange move. Why limit to MC? Seems like on Amazon/Neweggs these would sell like hotcakes. Still, kinda dumb to release a processor like a year+ after the previous one. And only $50 less? I would gladly pay $50 more for 2 cores and 4 threads
In a surprise move, AMD will sell a desktop gaming processor exclusively through Micro Center.
The US electronics retailer will sell the newly announced Ryzen 5 5600X3D, a lower-spec variant of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D that AMD launched last year using its 3D V-Cache technology. Micro Center will start selling the limited-edition processor on July 7 for $229.99, or about $50 less than the current price for the 5800X3D.
