AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktops CPUs Get Massive Price Cuts – Get up to a 16-Core, 32-Thread Chip, Starting From $342 Only


Amazon’s early Black Friday 2021 sale brings a trio of AMD Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors at such a low price, you are probably wondering why are you still waiting to upgrade. First up, we have the 5800X, an 8-core, 16-thread part that is available for $341.66 and is the most affordable out of the three, and given that it touts the fewest cores, it is likely going to be the most popular. Its Max Boost clock speed can reach 4.70GHz provided you have adequate cooling, and it will effortlessly handle most games that require an adequate number of threads.

If you are looking to tackle more than just games and want your CPU to flex its muscles in some processor-intensive tasks, we suggest getting the 5900X, which features 12 cores and 24 threads. It boasts 50 percent more cores than the 5800X and has a Max Boost clock speed of 4.80GHz. Lastly, if you want to make a baller system and want the absolute best for both gaming running workloads that make use of those 16 cores, get the 5950X.

However, keep in mind that the 5950X is the most expensive CPU from this trio, and will set you back by $718.99. Also bear in mind that none of the processors mentioned here include a cooler, so you will have to purchase one separately. All CPUs support the AM4 socket, so any X570 or B550 motherboard will be compatible with these. There is no telling when these price cuts will last, so we recommend getting an upgrade as early as possible and invest the savings in another PC part.
