If you're looking to build an AMD Ryzen-based PC, then these Amazon Prime Day deals could give you some decent savings on AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors.

These aren't AMD's latest Ryzen 3000 processors, but the two processors that have had price cuts in the UK — the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X and Ryzen 7 1700X — are still decent, especially now at these ultra-low prices. The US has some discounts on 2000-series processors as well.

Sign up for Prime Day

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals. You can sign up for a free trial, which will see you through Prime Day and which you can cancel after 30 days, or if you like the look of Prime then right now you can save £20 on a one-year subscription.

The AMD Ryzen 7 1700X is an octa-core processor with a clockspeed of 3.8GHz. It's an ideal chip for budget gaming PC builds, or for computers that need to multitask.

Meanwhile, the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X is a quad-core workhorse that's now less than £100. This is a great processor for day-to-day tasks, and its new price means it's now cheaper than ever to build (or upgrade) your PC.

If you're looking to give your PC a cheap upgrade, then this capable little CPU from AMD is ideal. It features eight cores and 16 threads, and runs at 3.8GHz. It doesn't require much power — just 95 watts — which makes it ideal for compact gaming PCs.

AMD Ryzen 5 1500X quad-core 3.5Ghz processor

AMD Ryzen 5 1500X quad-core 3.5Ghz processor £110.98 £99.99 at Amazon
This quad-core processor has dropped below £100, making it even better value than ever. It comes with four cores and eight threads, a 3.5GHz clock speed (which boosts to 3.7GHz) and fits the AM4 socket.

AMD Ryzen deals in the US for Amazon Prime Day

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X $329 $199 at Amazon
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X might be a bit old now that Ryzen 3rd Gen is here, but this 8-core, 16-thread processor can still get the job done. And, with this Prime Day deal, you can save a whopping 39% on one of the best processors.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 $199 $119 at Amazon
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 may be replaced by newer 3000-series CPUs, but that just means it can be found a lot cheaper. $119 isn't bad for a 6-core, 12-thread processor with overclocking potential. Not bad at all.
