There’s plenty of talk on the Internet about Intel launching 14th Gen Core processors next week. Those are all fine and well – rumour is that Raptor Lake Refresh is, at best, a minor uptick in performance over 13th Gen Core – but there are incredible deals to be had for impressive processors right this minute.

A great case in point is the excellent AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU. This 12-core, 24-thread processor makes light work of even the most demanding tasks and being run on the established and mature AM4 ecosystem, it fits into a wide range of value motherboards. What’s more, unlike premium Intel alternatives, 5900X sips on no more than 105W of power.

Using Zen 3 smarts, AMD Ryzen 9 5900X arrived on the scene in November 2020 priced at $549 / £510. That’s not what you pay today, not by a long shot, as the processor has dropped to an incredible £245 on UK shores, representing a massive 52 per cent discount off the competitive RRP. Our cousins over the pond in the US can also avail themselves of a superb discount as the processor is down to an all-time-low of $297. At these prices, it’s hard to say no.
