The $140 US for a Ryzen 5 2600 sounds like an absolute steal for budget builds with the processor offering 6 cores and 12 threads and very good performance for gaming and multi-tasking.
AMD is going to announce their 3rd generation Ryzen processors in the second half of 2019, with rumors pointing to an early July launch.
