The entire semiconductor industry is dramatically slowing financially world wide. China’s semiconductor buying is crashing hard.

Price is one lever to pull to stimulate demand.

I just looked. The only prices I am familiar with are the threadrippers and the 2700x. Both are normal, $589(1950x) and $309(2700x)

A lot of stores here use eBay to sell their returned products, so essentially second hand. May that be the case with Newegg?

I just noticed. On newegg the 2700x@309 has games bundled. On ebay, no games. Any other cpus different ? I am not going to look at them all.

I noticed not too long ago, that Newegg on ebay had the 2400G for $139.99. That was the only (sort-of) deal that I saw.

But it's not unusual. Good thing to check ebay from time to time, if purchasing a big-ticket component from Newegg or BestBuy (like WD external HDD). I picked up a pair of 10TB WD EasyStore drives for $179.99 ea. plus tax, from BestBuy on ebay.

Edit: Microcenter had the R5 1600 CPU for $99.99 in-store. Rumor has it that there will be a 6C/12T 3000-series Ryzen CPU with the same specs, more or less (more turbo?) for $99.99 MSRP.

I just love opening Task Manager on Windows 7 64-bit on my other rig, and seeing TWELVE CPU graphs. Looks kind of like some sort of high-core count mutant rig like most of Mark's. :p

I should show you a picture of 64 threads.... But that might be too much for you. I don;t want to give you heart failure.

OK, how about 48 threads....
