AMD’s Ryzen 5000 CPUs are going at unbelievable pricing across Amazon and Newegg. Right from the hex-core Ryzen 5 5600 to the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X, the final AM4 offerings are discounted by 40-50% in anticipation of the Black Friday sales. If you’re in the market for a Zen 3 part, the octa-core Ryzen 7 processors are the ones to consider. The 5700, an APU from the Cezanne family, can be snagged for just $186 from Amazon:
The Ryzen 7 5800X is another octa-core chip with a larger L3 cache and faster clocks. It launched in late 20 at an MSRP of $449 but is now going for just $242, a massive 48% cut.
The Ryzen 9 5900X is a high-end Zen 3 part with a price tag of $549. Amazon’s Black Friday sales place it at a much more appealing $342, a 40% drop in market value.
The Vermeer flagship featuring 16 cores and 32 threads is discounted to $520, a hefty 35% reduction in its official market price.
Ultimately, we have the Ryzen 5 5600, a downclocked variant of the 5600X. This SKU launched with a price tag of $199 but has fallen to $127, making it the ideal budget AM4 processor.
