The latest Cezanne processors give you a great price-to-performance ratio for low cost builds without discrete graphics. For a couple of weeks, the 5700G has been $30 off, but AMD is seemingly not done with the discounting!
AMD Ryzen 7 5700G: was $359, now $319 at Newegg (opens in new tab) with code GMETB3WK2AAZA236
The more powerful of the two Cezanne CPUs — the Ryzen 7 5700G is a powerful 8-core processor with a 3.8GHz clock speed and plenty of headroom for overclocking, as well as decent integrated Radeon graphics for good 1080p gaming performance.
Read our AMD Ryzen 7 5700G review to see why this is a great budget CPU for your build. From the faster Zen 3 cores and superior power efficiency, to the consumer friendly bundled cooler and AM4 motherboard compatibility, this is a very capable and usable processor.
In fact, the iGPU numbers are unmatched in our testing. As long as you adjust your expectations and fidelity/resolution settings accordingly, Cezanne gives you solid performance without needing a separate GPU. Going more in depth, Far Cry 5 at 720p hit 72.4 FPS, while GTA V at the same resolution (with lowest settings and DX11) achieved 152.4 FPS.
A processor this good at this price point is already a good buy at MSRP, let alone with $30 off.
