If you were thinking of buying a new desktop processor, the Ryzen 7 3800X offers you a ton of power for the money. Right now, Amazon is selling the Ryzen 7 3800X for $339.99, which is the lowest price it has been since the holiday shopping season and only $10 more than its best-ever Cyber Monday price.

AMD also includes an RGB Wraith Prism cooler in the box, as well as a game bundle that includes Borderlands 3, The Outer World, plus 3 months of Xbox Game Pass. That’s a whole lot of extras, especially considering you have to bring your own cooler for competing Intel K series CPUs.

With a 4.5GHz max turbo speed, 8 physical cores and 16 threads, the Ryzen 7 3800X is a great all-around performer, especially at this lower price.

The Ryzen 7 3800X sports AMD’s latest Zen 2 architecture and a more-efficient 7nm process node that make this CPU excel at both productivity and gaming. You can certainly spend less for a great gaming CPU, but if you’re after a chip that can handle work and play equally well, the Ryzen 7 3800X is tough to beat, especially at this price with the included bundle and cooler.
