The best AMD Ryzen deals in March 2017: cheap Ryzen CPUs, motherboards and bundles

The best places to buy new AMD Ryzen chips in the US

After years of the processor market being dominated by Intel, it looks like AMD is back in the game with the launch of its new AMD Ryzen range of processors. 

If you’re excited about upgrading your machine, then you’ve come to the right place, as we’ve scoured the internet in the US to find the best deals for Ryzen processors.

Of course, with a new CPU comes new motherboards as well, so we’ll also feature the best deals on Ryzen-compatible AM4 motherboards in the US to help you build your new (or upgraded) PC, as well as Ryzen CPU and motherboard bundles, and pre-built Ryzen PCs.

AMD has designed its Ryzen CPUs to bring powerful, octa-core performance for an affordable price – compared to Intel’s relatively pricey chips. For instance, the AMD Ryzen 7 1800x offers comparable performance to Intel's Core i7-6900K chip for nearly half as much scratch.

Pre-orders have begun for the Ryzen processors, and they will start to go on sale on March 2. Still, it’s never too early to bag yourself a bargain, and to make sure you're not disappointed if these processors sell out fast.
