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.
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.
