    It looks like AM4 has several years to go looking at these prices for AM5.

    5900x->7900x 550eur->750eur at launch
    x570->x670e 200->300eur

    ddr5 2x the price of ddr4

    it's going to be fun to be an early am5 adopter.

    Doesn't make any sense. Probably a 50% tax for the privilege of buying it before it launches.

    I don't believe the French person running that "Cdiscount" store has checked his/her English dictionary to see what "discount" means.

    Looks kind of like parallel import pricing.

    Typical pre-release predatory pricing. Once in volume, these will never sell above MSRP. This isn't 2020.

    Just Not

    DDR5 is selling for roughly the same price as DDR4 (depending on rgb)
    and those prices are obviously jacked and w/o warranty as gray market items (and additional profiteering off of the tray price vs boxed price)

    aren't you just the prince of schadenfreude

    lol
    find me 32g of ddr5 for that price.

    and please, if you think you're so much better,why always use insults instead of facts.
    cheapest mid-range ddr5 (5600) is 186eur,so it's already quite a difference. high end ddr4 vs high-end ddr5 it's twice the price,like I said.

    We too can arbitrarily cherry-pick results. I picked the first 32GB DDR5 kit that showed up in Amazon, for $150:
    https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-2x16GB-Desktop-KF548C38BBK2-32/dp/B09KCLWW2K/
    So I compared it to the first DDR4 listing of the same branding, at $125:
    https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-FURY-3200MHz-KF432C16BBAK2-32/dp/B097HNF3ZQ/
    If my math is right (and I don't know, this is a pretty tough calculation), 150 divided by 2 is not 125.

    Honestly, assuming the DDR5 module has ECC (probably does), it's well worth the extra $25.

    yea but it's a one-off special offer for basic 4800 ddr5,I'm not comparing it against 2666 ddr4 on sale, I'm trying to be objective, regular price 3600 c16 ddr4 vs regular price 5600 c36 ddr5 (best value propositions for both atm) and price difference is already 60+ eur,in best case scenario for regular price ddr5.So if anyone's not objective here, it's not me.Also, you know that pretty much every enthusiast has some good ddr4 on hand already,right ? I have 4133 c16 sticks, would be silly to sell them if they still do so well with 12/13th gen

    @cucaulay malkin you are beating the dead horse. ddr5 performs so much better in cpu bound scenes that isnt even worth thinking about ddr4 atm. Buying a ddr4 for alder lake or raptor lake is plain bad idea.

    It's on sale because many prices are being slashed for DDR5. The point @tunejunky was trying to make is that DDR5 prices are on a downward trend. Do more shopping and you'll find plenty of such instances. I just checked other stores and found many cases of 32GB DDR5 kits being sold for $200 or less. Even for 5600, there are decent prices:
    https://www.newegg.com/corsair-32gb-288-pin-ddr5-sdram/p/N82E16820236828?quicklink=true
    The pre-sale price wasn't worth double DDR4 either.

    yeah,the high end ddr5 does.now go check how much it costs,more than 6 to 8 core sku upgrade.check the results I posted above, is it worth to go with 6800 c32 that will cost a fortune vs ddr4 that most of us already have,it's not a big difference even with i9 vs i7

    as if ddr4 didn't go on sale lol
    and did he mention they went down not to being cheap but rather down from exorbitant level ?
    that is a really nice deal for 5600 c36 kit indeed,but once again,the reular price is much higher.

    295Eur still high for a 6000 cl36 but still miles better than what it was months ago. Worthy investment i think.

    half of that for high - end ddr4, will perform only a couple percent worse on average.

    I'm glad I'm not going to have to deal with this bs as my current system will serve me well until much better deals for am5 cpus,mobos and ddr5 will come along
    get ready for 300+300+450 eur for x670e + fast ddr5 + 7800x system.
    I'll buy one when it's 200 + 150 + 300,which certainly won't take longer than my system being too slow.
    I agree the tendency for ddr5 is to go down,but they started at ridiculous prices and now they are just at rather expensive level. add the boards and price hike for am5 cpus,and it's over 1000eur to buy an 8 core system on new gen. for comparison,mine cost 550 altogether,also an 8-core with a really good b-die bin and a good mobo.

    also, lol at 400eur for 7600x, early buyers will be milked worse than before. better wait a couple of months,might get this below 350 then.
