AMD’s premium level Ryzen 9 5900X CPU is back down to its lowest price so far, $539.99, thanks to a new discount code at Newegg.

This 12-core, 4.8 GHz boost clock processor is a great choice for anyone looking to add serious current-gen single and multi-core performance to their machine.

Earning 4.5 stars in our review, this chip sets a mighty impressive benchmark for high-end gaming and application performance, all while delivering amazing power efficiency and PCIe Gen4 support.View Deal

This chip's stellar specs lead to some stunningly fluid gameplay. In our own testing alongside an RTX 3090, the Ryzen 9 hit an impressive 163.2 FPS in Borderlands 3 at 1080p Ultra, exactly the same in Far Cry 5 and 150.7 FPS in Hitman 2. Plus, when tested with something far more intense like Microsoft Flight Simulator at 1440p, frame rates reached 52.4 FPS.

Combine that with blistering speeds in creative apps like Premiere Pro (the CPU hit a score of 959 in Puget Systems Benchmarking), and this is a powerful all-rounder to add to any build.

    all market places are using "deal"crap for msrp.

    microcenters sell em for at or below msrp regularly.

    This is like a click bait. I saw BIG PRICE CUT, so decided to check it out. Turns out to be 10 bucks discount since the MSRP is USD 549. Even if I use their USD 569 as benchmark, that's a 5% discount. Big price cut. :rolleyes:
