The world’s fastest processor has a massive price drop weeks after launch, but why?

AMD launched its Genoa-based EPYC 9654 in November 2022 and immediately hit the headlines as the fastest x86 processor processor on the planet with 96 cores (and 192 threads) that run at 2.4GHz and achieve a TDP of 360W.

The suggested retail price (SRP) of $11,805 makes it the most expensive AMD part ever made, and it competes head-to-head with the Sapphire Rapids-based Intel Xeon Platinum 8490H processor, which has a sticker price of $17,000.
