AMD has lowered the prices of its series of Ryzen Threadripper processors. These are substantial reductions, with some models receiving a 50 percent lower retail price. Incidentally, the retail price is usually lower than the AMD retail price.
From information in the Pricewatch, it appears that the prices of the first generation of Threadripper processors have already fallen sharply recently. Nevertheless, it is plausible that price decreases will occur in the coming period; the first generation of Threadripper processors have become steadily cheaper over the past few months, to retail prices that are considerably below AMD’s suggested retail price.
