Alder Lake CPUs are very competitive to AMD's Ryzen processors. This made them an excellent choice for gamers and office workers both. Even while AMD continues to outsell Intel, prices seem to have drooped US$100 on the Ryzen 7 5800X processor over time.
Discounts are being offered on other CPUs on Amazon btw, including the Ryzen 5000G and 9000, but the two most popular versions for gaming are being highlighted because of their lower prices. While the Intel processor necessitates the purchase of a new motherboard, the AMD CPU allows customers who currently own an AM4 motherboard to just swap out the processor. The Ryzen 5 5600X is a better buy, with a compatible AM4 motherboard that you already own. Have a peek below at the trend line going downwards.
