Black Friday is almost here but that hasn't stopped vendors from dropping prices on some of our favorite hardware. To help make things easier for our readers this year, we're gathering the best deals on tech we can find and highlighting at least one notable deal every weekday.
We use third-party applications like PCPartPicker to evaluate vendor price history and recommend our readers do the same as any of these could change in an instant. Today we're sharing a discount through Newegg on the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 3800X processor.
With high-end CPUs being in short supply, the Ryzen 7 3800X offers an interesting option for building a fast yet modestly-priced system – even if it's not AMD's latest-and-greatest. In this case, the 3800X offers 8 Zen 2 cores with SMT, for a total of 16 threads.
The base clockspeed on the chip is 3.9GHz, but the chip can turbo as high as 4.5GHz – and indeed with most performance-focused motherboards it should be able to hold at its turbo frequency indefinitely.
You'll need an AMD 400 or 500 series motherboard with an AM4 socket to support this processor.
Finally, this processor does come with a stock cooler, via the inclusion of AMD's popular Wraith Prism cooler.
Visit the Ryzen 7 3800X product page on Newegg for more details and checkout options. And be sure to use promo code EMCGGGR23 when checking out to lock in this deal.
