There are some Black Friday deals that make you all giggly inside and this discount on AMD's new Ryzen 5 3600X CPU is one fine example. The processor hasn't been out for many months and already we're seeing a steep discount for Black Friday with £50 slashed off the retail price. That's £200 for the six-core and 12-thread processor we gave full marks to in our review.
£250 £50 off
AMD's Ryzen 5 3600X is a six-core processor with 12 threads, allowing you to get much more done on your PC and at this low price makes it one compelling purchase.
The Ryzen 5 3600X isn't like the older FX processors AMD used to release with more cores than Windows and Linux knew what to do with. The new Ryzen CPUs are as good as Intel offerings and come with some pretty neat benefits, including PCIe 4.0 support and exceptional multi-core performance scores.
For specifications, you've got the six core and 12 thread setup, clock speeds that can boost up to 4.4GHz (not including overclocking), 35MB cache, and a TDP of just 95W. All this allows the processor to battle through intense gaming and applications like video editors without breaking a sweat.
What sweetens this deal further is the inclusion of the AMD Wraith Spire CPU cooler, which is more than adequate for the processor. If you need a new CPU for your PC and plan on doing something a little different if you're used to Intel, give this Ryzen 5 3600X a try.
