If you were considering picking up a new CPU, now is the time as Cyber Monday has hit Amazon, and AMD Ryzen CPUs are ridiculously cheap.
Cyber Monday has arrived, and if you don't know what that means, it means discounts across almost every online store that wants to participate in the madness. Cyber Monday follows the crazy week of Black Friday sales and is the other half of the end-of-November sales leading into the holiday season. Cyber Monday is a day dedicated to online stores slashing prices, and Amazon, unsurprisingly, is leading the charge by slashing up to 61% off select AMD CPUs.
Gamers are able to pick up an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core, 16-Thread CPU for just $174 when its original listing price was $449. If you don't want to shell out that much for a new CPU, you can save some cash by picking up the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6-core, 12-Thread for $134.89, which has a discount of 56%.
