Arguably the most important component in any computer (along with the graphics card if you're a gamer), your CPU has the most impact on performance. If you’re planning a new PC Build, perhaps one of the best PC builds, anytime soon, this Black Friday deals season, which is already underway, should yield some good processor discounts, all of which we are tracking below.

This Black Friday season, we’re also seeing some solid deals on current-gen chips from Intel, as well as and AMD’s 2nd and 3rd Gen Ryzen chips. The brand new Ryzen 5000 series processors provide epic upgrades in performance (see our review of the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X), but we don’t expect to find big discounts on them -- it may be tough to find them in stock at all.

Below, we’re rounding up the best Black Friday CPU deals, from sales on low-end chips to high-end, mutli-core productivity monsters like those you’ll find on our best CPUs page or high atop or CPU benchmark hiearchy

    I love reading these hot sales when THG posts them. It reminds me how far (down) the site has gone. More worried about getting revenue from the kickbacks than actual tech sales. For example, that now outdated 3700X was 255ish about two months ago. This isn't much of a sale at all. The 3400g is two+ generations old and only about $20ish off original MSRP.

    If it's below common street price, it's a deal. It may not be a super deal, but it's a deal.

    The 3400g is Zen+. I will admit it's old. But you won't get anything faster because 7nm 4000 series is reserved for OEM's. For a SOHO/Net appliance server it's more than adequate.
