If you've been waiting to upgrade your processor, now is a good time to jump in and see what's available. Over at Amazon today, we came across the AMD Ryzen 7 7700 CPU at a great price. This powerful CPU usually goes for around $329. However, it's slowly come down since launching in 2023 and today is listed at just $246—one of its lowest prices to date. So far, no expiration date has been specified for the offer, so we're not sure how long it will be available at this price.

It's important to note that this offer is for the Ryzen 7 7700, not the Ryzen 7 7700X which is similar with slightly better performance but doesn't come with a stock cooler. The Ryzen 7 7700X appears on our CPU Benchmarks and Hierarchy list and can give you an idea of where the Ryzen 7 7700 stacks up against other processors on the market.
