Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on AMD’s latest Ryzen 7 2700 processor, which is down to $220 as part of a one-day sale at Amazon. That’s its lowest price to date on Amazon, down about $60-70 from its usual going rate.
This is an unlocked eight-core, 16-thread processor with a base clock speed of 3.2GHz and a turbo of 4.1GHz. It also comes with AMD’s handy Wraith Spire LED cooler. We went over the second-gen Ryzen chips when they launched in April, but the skinny on the Ryzen 7 2700 is that it’s not the best buy for lightly-threaded tasks or gaming. Despite that, it’s still more than adequate and a good value for heavier workloads and multi-threaded tasks. This deal price should only amplify that. Just note that Intel’s ninth-gen processors are likely launching soon, if you do take the plunge.
If you aren’t looking to build a budget-conscious rig, though, we also have a sitewide 15 percent-off sale at eBay, deals on Amazon Fire TV devices, and more. Have a look below.
