AMD processors have come a long way since Ryzen was first launched in 2017. Intel has been playing catch-up, which resulted in the impressive 12th Gen Core range this year, but still the Ryzen 5000 series offers excellent performance at a reasonable price. And because it's Black Friday, you can enjoy up to 24% off AMD processors at Amazon.

The Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5700U, and Ryzen 7 5800X are all on sale. We've been monitoring PC part deals, and this is the lowest we've seen these processors, largely in part due to the successful launch of Intel's Core CPUs. This is great news for all consumers since it means there's better choice and value, especially with these discounts.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is a special CPU since it contains an integrated GPU. This doesn't sound much for those who used Intel CPUs before, but this is no ordinary GPU. It's Radeon graphics that allow this 8-core, 16-thread processor to easily handle modern games on its own with impressive results.

If you're wanting to build a PC yourself with these processors, we recommend an X570 motherboard. We've rounded up the best motherboards for AMD and Intel CPUs, and any X570 pick from there will work perfectly with the discounted AMD parts.
