Several AMD Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 7000 series of desktop CPUs have received price cuts for Black Friday 2022, and there is a small treat for those who will entertain a purchase for the last-generation processors. You will get a free digital copy of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, which includes Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
However, before we proceed, you should know that digital copies are only available if you purchase any Ryzen 5000 CPU and are not applicable to any Ryzen 7000 purchase. In any case, the discounts are still attractive, and if you want to experience increased frames in the latest titles, we recommend purchasing a model from AMD’s latest CPU family, though that will mean having to upgrade to a new motherboard and DDR5 memory, which is pricey.
A six-core CPU is the bare minimum that we recommend when playing games or when multi-tasking. Modern-day games are optimized for taking advantage of multiple cores, so an 8-core desktop CPU will be the sweet spot for the majority of gamers. If you need the extra core count, then you will have to spend a little extra money for the 12-core or 16-core options.
In any case, there is something here for everyone.
