The latest from AMD in processor tech, the Ryzen 5 3600X is based on the 7nm Zen2 platform, boasting 6-cores and 12-threads for tremendous gaming and CPU intensive workload performance. At this price it's too good to miss.
The Ryzen 5 2600X is the previous generation version of the Ryzen 5 3600X, but it's still a six-core beast that's more than capable of handling demanding games and software.
This eight-core processor is great for high-end PC builds where multi-core applications require considerable amounts of performance. It's an older-gen processor, but one that still stands tall.
The Ryzen 3 3200G is for PC builds where space is tight or you don't require a dedicated GPU. By default, the majority of AMD's desktop processors don't come with graphics processing, but the G variants do and this is one of them, packing a quad-core CPU with Radeon Vega 8 graphics.
Who said eight-core processors had to be expensive. This fine example from AMD packs a punch for the price with 16 threads available to handle workloads. It even comes with a fancy RGB-enabled AMD cooler.
The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is a little slower than the 3800X, but not that you'd notice unless really pushing the PC hard. With the same RGB cooler, this is another great deal if you want to save an extra $20 on an eight-core processor.
Choosing the right AMD Ryzen CPU
Our best overall pick goes to the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, which at this price makes it impossible not to recommend. It strikes the perfect balance between affordability and performance, rocking eight cores and 16 threads and support for PCIe 4.0 (with a compatible AM4 motherboard). This is a CPU that'll last you for years to come.
There are plenty of deals to be had this Black Friday, but you need to have a good browse around to make sure you're making the correct purchase. Do you really need the best processor in this collection? The likely answer is no. Always budget accordingly. Do you simply need a processor that'll let you browse online, play a game here and there and watch some movies? The AMD Ryzen 3 3200G is a great fit with its integrated GPU.
