Cyber Monday is here! And with it comes a horde of amazing hardware deals. One of the best offers we’ve spotted over the festivities is a massive discount on the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. At just $139.99, this excellent mid-range gaming CPU is less than half price, and very close to an all-time low.

AMD is known for making excellent gaming CPUs, and the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is a very capable bit of kit that would be an upgrade to a lot of gaming rigs. Its six cores, 12 threads, and 4.6GHz max boost clock mean it handles most if not all gaming loads with ease.

Although it’s a last-generation processor, it still has plenty left to give and can act as a slot-in upgrade to existing owners of compatible AM4 motherboards. If you’re hoping to build a budget PC, AM4 boards are also going for cheap these days as well, even outside of sales.

And you can buy this powerful processor for just $139.99 at Amazon. That’s a significant markdown from its $309 MSRP — a 55% discount in fact. We’ve done the leg work and checked the sales history for the 5600X via CamelCamelCamel. Its lowest ever price is $138, meaning this is practically as good as you’re going to get any time soon in terms of a sale.

If you subscribe to Amazon Prime, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X could be with you tomorrow thanks to Amazon’s next-day delivery. New subscribers can also claim their 30-day free trial, so you can claim your brand-new CPU without having to pay for postage.
