Of course, as always, nothing of this offer has yet been seen in Europe.

As was logical to expect, these incentives seek encourage the sale of AMD Ryzen 7000. Due to the high cost of CPUs, motherboards and the mandatory use of DDR5 memory, they have been the Ryzen 5000 themselves which have cannibalized all sales. Something evident due to the enormous money savings that exist between one platform and another. Not to mention a better relationship in terms of yield obtained for every dollar/euro invested.
