The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X has been discounted at Newegg, letting you save up to $75 with the promo code BFPAYA526. This brings the total down to $374, the lowest price we’ve seen for this particular processor. As an added bonus, this CPU comes packaged with a free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
The 5800X is part of the latest Zen 3 architecture and uses the same AM4 socket used by AMD’s previous generation of processors, which for most people should allow you to swap in this new CPU without having to invest in a new motherboard. This eight-core CPU has a base clock speed of 3.8GHz but is capable of up to a 4.7GHz boost clock speed. While this CPU is quite powerful, Newegg has also discounted the 5900X and 5950X to $524 and $746, respectively, if you’re in need of a processor with a little more staying power.
The mainstay chip of the new Zen 3 line from AMD, the 5800X is capable of 3.8GHz out of the box, but this eight-core, 16-thread processor is capable of climbing to 4.7GHz with sufficient overclocking.
