The latest addition to the Amazon Early Black Friday sale sees the AMD Ryzen 5 processor discounted by 49% for a limited time.
The Amazon The Black Friday Early Sale continues with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor added to the growing number of deals. As the build-up to Black Friday continues, those looking for a new desktop processor can grab the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X for $158. The usual RRP is $309.99, so the discount represents a savings of 49%.
Known for their PC architecture as well as for supplying processors for Sony PlayStation and Nintendo consoles, AMD is primarily Intel’s only rival when it comes to mainstream PC processors. The Ryzen line of processors are popular among the PC build community as they are generally priced well outside of any offers and offer robust performance for the latest games. Of course, they perform just as well when it comes to handling all the other day-to-day tasks that a desktop PC is supposed to do.
Originally released in 2020, the Ryzen 5 5600X is a 6-core, 12-thread processor with a CPU clock speed of 4.6 GHz already unlocked and ready for overclocking. The unit supports DDR4 memory and can support PCIe 4.0 on X570 and B550 motherboards, and it comes with a stock CPU fan. At $158, the Ryzen 5 5600X is an attractive deal for those looking to upgrade or build their next PC. This offer becomes all the more attractive given the recent drop in GPU prices and even opens the door for those who might be looking to dip their toes into the world of PC gaming for the first time.
As always with these Amazon Early Black Friday deals, deals are only available for a limited time or until stock is sold out. With a saving of almost 50% compared to the RRP, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X will likely be recovered quickly, so those looking to build their next AMD PC will need to act fast.
