The season of black friday deals is starting. Newegg is currently selling the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU for $304.99, saving you $25.
With its eight cores, 16 threads and 36MB of total cache, the Ryzen 7 3700X is a great processor for gamers and enthusiast that require decent firepower. The chip is based on AMD's Zen 2 microarchitecture, which means you get to enjoy groundbreaking features like 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes and DDR4-3200 memory support right out of the box.
The Ryzen 7 3700X flaunts a 3.6 GHz base clock and a 4.4 GHz boost clock. The octa-core part is rated for 65W, and it's accompanied with AMD's Wraith Prism CPU cooler, which comes with all the RGB goodness. However, we do recommend you pick a third-party cooler if you plan to overclock the processor.
