If you need a CPU upgrade and do not want to invest in an entirely new ecosystem with Ryzen 7000, now might be a good time to consider it.
Ryzen 7000 will be here in a couple of weeks' time, and we noticed Ryzen 5000 CPUs have begun to see significant price reductions. Ryzen 7000 CPUs will undoubtedly beat their predecessors; the Ryzen 5000s will be more affordable for most gamers who don't feel the need to move to the AM5 platform (mobo/DDR5) just yet.
An AM4 platform will be less expensive is its compatibility with DDR4 memory, which are significantly less expensive than DDR5. Furthermore, AM4 motherboards are substantially less expensive, with costs ranging from $50 to $500, whereas AM5 motherboards start at $150 in the United States.

AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU pricing; These are currently global prices, not domestic, we'll see a great decrease, such as the Ryzen 9 5950X, which was priced at USD 799.99 at launch and is now priced at USD 499.99. That's a fantastic price for a 16-core CPU, but if you want to save money while getting a lot of performance cores, the Ryzen 9 5900X with 12 cores is only $349.99. In fact, it's less expensive than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is $379.99.
In addition, the Ryzen 7 5800X can be purchased for $239.99, while the 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X can be acquired at $179.99. This plan by AMD to clear stock of the Ryzen 5000 might be problematic in the near run, as it would only sell prior generation hardware instead of its most sophisticated product by making such platform so appealing.
In the EU prices seem to be a notch higher still. However, a 5800X can be spotted in the 265 EUR range, and the 5950X sist at the 535 EUR marker.
