It should have $150 MSRP in the first place.

Wow, a Fry's CPU deal that is still in stock for shipping, what a rare treat. I'd been holding out for the low energy use GE Ryzen APUs, but it doesn't look like they are going to release them this month, as I'd hoped. https://www.anandtech.com/show/12...educed-tdp

The hard part is going to be finding a deal on some DDR4. But I don't have to build this month.

These Ryzen APUs have been great for those wanting a new build, but are waiting for more graphics card prices to normalize. AMD has made so many good moves the last year or so with their processors, I love it.

In contrast with AMD's previous APUs that used FM1 or FM2 sockets, these use their flagship AM4 socket. Those proprietary sockets worked fine for their specific APUs, but left upgrade paths almost non-existent.

With these APUs using AM4 sockets, you can get a Motherboard and RAM for a future high-end build, then get an affordable APU to get the build up and running until you catch a deal on a 1700x and a GPU. This versatile mindset is the AMD we knew a decade ago. I missed them.

For those curious about performance, these aren't Threadrippers with onboard Vega 64s, that's for sure. But all of the reviews I've seen have shown that the new APUs (this one and the 2200G) give a lot of performance for the money, and hold up in games when compared to lower-end discrete graphics cards for around the same price (more-so for the 2200G).... So it's like the CPU part of the APU is free...

They will likely have decent resale value once you decide to upgrade too. Even a few years ago when I had a few APU builds and extra processors from upgrades, I was able to sell used APUs on ebay for around 60-80% of (then current) market value of new chips. And those were FM2 socket chips, which means my sales were more limited to people with specific builds in mind.

I know this seems like an AMD shill post. I don't care. I love APUs for their capabilities with moderate tasks and games. Having them now use AMDs flagship socket makes them way more appealing to me. Intel+Nvidia don't really have anything that competes on performance:price ratio.

FYI though, from the reviews I've seen, you do get more for your money with the 2200G, Though the 2400G did perform better as expected, the gap wasn't enough to justify the price difference. This sale does close the gap a bit, and makes the better performng APU more enticing...

... Dammit... Now I'm looking at motherboards...

Don't know why these people keep down voting logic. What you said is true, and I'll go one further, for that cpu with thermal paste instead of solder, it should be at $130 MSRP. The same price gap between the 2700 and 2700x. Amd knew they would be cannibalizing their line up from the jump. Not sure why they did(are doing) the techie skim in the first place. Demand gets put on hold until the price normalizes.

Are all.cpus using thermal paste, or just certain models?

fry's is so hilarious. they make you enter a promo code for windows 10 to see the price, as if it's oh so low, and all it saves is $5 off their normal price. lol.

While we're at it, let's lol at newegg too. They are advertising a "sale" on SNES classic for $99 and listing the regular price at $149 or something around that, when really MSRP is below even the $99.

Do you recommend these APUs for building a totally fanless, passively cooled system? How do they compare with Intel in their class? I don't game but do some video editing and conversion and Photoshop. Thanks.
