We all got a real look at what Intel's Comet Lake-S desktop processor family brings to the table yesterday, as you saw in our review of the Core i9-10900K and the Core i5-9600K. The former in particular was rather impressive for its nearly unassailable gaming performance and was helped out in multi-threaded benchmarks due to its extra 2 cores (compared to the Core i9-9900K). It looks as though AMD and its retail partners were paying attention as well, as we’re seeing some downward pricing pressure on the Ryzen 9 3900X, which compares favorably to the Core i9-10900K. The Ryzen 9 3900X was priced at $499 when it first launched last year, but AMD lowered the official price to $449 back... Read more...
Yesterday, we brought you a hot deal on AMD's previous generation Ryzen 5 2600X processor, which rang up at a low, low price of $99 at MicroCenter -- $50 off its usual asking price. MicroCenter also has some other compelling deals for AMD enthusiasts looking for something on the complete opposite end of the spectrum with respect to performance. MicroCenter is currently running a deal on the Ryzen 9 3950X, which is the flagship processor in AMD's Ryzen 3000 consumer desktop family. It wasn't until recently that retailers even had sufficient availability of this processor, so it's somewhat surprising to see this healthy discount on the chip. The retailer is selling the processor... Read more...
If you're looking for a potent processor to power your budget gaming rig, we've got a pretty compelling deal in store for you today from MicroCenter. The retailer is well-known for its excellent deals on AMD Ryzen processors, and the latest on Ryzen 5 2600X is no exception. The Ryzen 5 2600X originally had a retail price of $209.99, but can be regularly found these days for $149 or lower. Amazon, for example, is selling the Ryzen 5 2600X for $137, but MicroCenter takes the cake with an incredibly low $99.99 price tag. To take advantage of this pricing, you'll need a brick and mortar MicroCenter location nearby, as the retailer will not ship it to you. You can either walk into the store... Read more...
Earlier this week, we reported on a smoking deal for a second-generation AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processor, which could be had for a low $199. The Ryzen 7 2700X is AMD's current consumer flagship desktop processor, but it will soon be eclipsed by a slew of more powerful Zen 2-based processors. As a result, prices are falling fast on existing Ryzen 2000 inventory. MicroCenter is back at it again with blowout pricing on additional Zen+ processors. In this case, the discounts can be found on the Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and Ryzen 5 2600. All three processors are retail boxed, while the Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600X come bundled with a Wraith Spire cooler. The Ryzen 5 2600 comes with a Wraith... Read more...
