AMD's Ryzen 7 3700X CPU is selling for $300 on Amazon, which is $30 off its typical selling price. Even though we've seen this CPU sell for as low as $290 on Black Friday, this price is still one of the best tech deals on a chip right now. 

The Ryzen 7 3700X comes with eight fully-enabled 7nm cores and 16 threads powered by the Zen 2 microarchitecture. The cores run at a 3.9 GHz base frequency and boost up to 4.4 GHz within the chips' 65W TDP envelope.

The Ryzen 7 3700X features AMD's Zen 2 microarchitecture paired with the 7nm process. It delivers tremendous performance across eight cores and 16 threads. At $299 it's only $10 more than its Black Friday price. 

In our AMD Ryzen 3700X review, we noted that it returned gaming frame rates that were around 20% higher than its direct predecessor, the Ryzen 7 2700X.  It also provided great productivity performance, often matching or exceeding Intel Core i7-9700K and on rendering and encoding tasks, it usually came out ahead.
