If you're building a new PC or looking to upgrade your existing build, you may want to look into a new AMD CPU. Today we're seeing huge price drops on a whole lot of AMD CPUs from budget picks to some of the faster options available. The least expensive option is the AMD Ryzen 5 4500 going for just $79, which normally sells for around $129 or more. The most expensive option is the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X at $549, and that's a CPU that can sell for around $650 on any other day.
The point is you have options no matter how much you want to spend. Plus, you can find a lot of these deals at several retailers from Best Buy to Amazon. Some of these CPUs are having a hard time staying in stock, but that's likely because of the sale that is dropping them to all new lows.
Great AMD CPU deals:
AMD Ryzen 5 5500
$159 $99 at Newegg
You may have to search to find this one available at any other retailers at this price, but at least at Newegg you also get the AMD Uncharted games bundle that includes the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves collection. That's a nice bonus on top of the price drop.
AMD Ryzen 7 5700G
$250 $199 at Amazon
You'll be able to find this deal at several retailers including Newegg and Best Buy. At Best Buy you can also find it bundled and discounted with compatible motherboards, which could be a nice head start for yor build. This is a more advanced mid-tier processor with built-in graphics.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D
$449 $329 at Newegg
While designed to fit the AM4 socket like all the other CPUs on this list, the 5800X3D includes AMD's unique 3D V-cache vertical design. If you're looking for a great processor for gaming, this is one of the best values around especially considering today's price.
