AMD’s previous-gen budget king, the Ryzen 5 2600 is selling for an unbeatable price of $96 on AliExpress. That’s less than half the launch price and a good $50 less than the present Amazon selling price. Clearly not the fastest CPU on the block, the Ryzen 5 2600 is still a capable chip if you’re looking to build a 1080p 60 FPS gaming PC or a work computer. You can snag a cheap B450 board for less than $100 and build the entire PC for around $300.
In case you’re worried about the seller being legit, fret not it’s a well-reputed store with a rating of 98% and a 4-year presence on AE. The Ryzen 5 2600 is a hex-core processor with SMT bringing the thread count to 12. It has a base clock of 3.4GHz and a boost of 3.9GHz. The CPU comes with a wraith stealth cooler and can be easily overclocked due to the unlocked multiplier. You can buy the chip from here.
