Following a flurry of mouthwatering discounts earlier in the summer, PC gamers are patiently awaiting good deals on gaming-centric AMD Ryzen processors. We’ve yet to see prices drop back to historic lows, but the latest promotion at eBay UK gets pretty close.

Bargains are available via a SAVENOW coupon code providing a 20% discount from select retailers. We’ve pored through the list and it includes Ebuyer, allowing you to reduce the Ryzen 7 5800X3D price to a mighty tempting £269.26. That’s the best price we’ve seen in a while. Though Black Friday looms, we aren’t expecting the CPU to go any lower, if at all.

Prefer to migrate to a new AM5 rig? Even the latest-generation Ryzen 7 7800X3D is eligible for the discount, though there are a few limitations worth knowing about. For select retailers, the coupon code limits to a maximum discount of £75 and expires at midnight on November 16, so you need to act fast. The SAVENOW voucher reduces the cost of 7800X3D from £411.47 to £336.47, representing an excellent price for a tremendous chip.

Tremendous gaming processors

To recap, each generation of CPU touts an eight-core, 16-thread configuration, replete with a whopping 96MB of L3 cache. Those gaming smarts augment via boost clocks of 4.5GHz for the 105W 5800X3D or 5.0GHz for the 120W 7800X3D.

The AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D held above green grass.
