Just like any other product, computer hardware responds to microeconomics. Such an example can be felt with the Ryzen 9 3900X whose market demand has affected its price. When the chip was released, it had a market value of only $569.99. 

But just over three months after its release, the processor now sells at a 16% increase from its original price. Also, there has been a significant price gouging from online sellers and third-party retail outlets. In a clear definition of what is happening, it seems like AMD’s supply for the newly-released Ryzen 9 3900X is being used up. 

Though this does not mean that AMD will not be producing this type of gaming rig, the demand for the processor is affecting its market price. This is a common scenario in the retail market as manufacturers scramble to meet with market demands. So in a typical situation, the commodity will have an increased price range. 

The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is one of the most powerful desktop processors in the market coming from the line of the AMD 3000 Series. It is designed with 12 cores able to run the most graphic-intensive games available today. 

Aside from having 12 cores, the Ryzen 9 3900X runs on a total of 24 threads. It has a base clock of 3.8GHz, and a maximum boosted clock speed of 4.6GHz. 

In today’s gaming industry, the clock speed of this AMD processor carries enough prowess to give every gamer all he ever needs for some of the most graphics-intensive titles. The processor is designed for desktop and carries a system memory specs of 3200MHz.

As of writing, the price of the Ryzen 9 3900X is up even with sites that over processors at the lowest possible prices. Newegg, for instance, has over 16.23% increase from the suggested MSRP, ($579.99) while Amazon and Micro Center offers the processor at $569.99.

Price discrepancies still vary per retailer, and it is not unusual for some retailers to take advantage of the high demands and low supply. 

On the side of AMD, they have never released any updates regarding the price increase of their products. Or when they do, it’s usually a discount offer. To sum it up, it’s inevitable that market demands will affect the price of a commodity. And given the fact that the Ryzen 9 3900X is one of the most powerful desktop processors available now, it’s not unusual for market supplies to dwindle and product price to increase.
