From now until the end of March, AMD have cut the price of some popular 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processors across multiple stores with discounts in many countries.
If you're looking to build a new Linux gaming PC or general Linux desktop, this might just save you some essential funds to perhaps put elsewhere and AMD's Ryzen processors do pack quite a punch in performance. Our current livestreaming rig (follow us on Twitch here) is powered by a AMD Ryzen and it's a real workhorse.
Some of the processors on sale include:
- Ryzen 9 3900X – $449 ($50 off SEP) or lower
- Ryzen 7 3800X – $359 ($40 off SEP) or lower
- Ryzen 7 3700X – $304 ($25 off SEP) or lower
- Ryzen 5 3600X – $224 ($25 off SEP) or lower
- Ryzen 5 3600 – $174 ($25 off SEP) or lower
I've checked over them and the prices are good in the US and the UK on both sites, AMD were pretty clear in their messages to me that this is supposed to be a big sale "worldwide" but exact prices will vary. In many cases (looking in the UK), the discount is much higher than expected. The AMD Ryzen 7 3800X for example on Amazon in the UK has £103.99 knocked-off the price!
