If you’re in the market for a shiny new CPU for your gaming PC, there’s a sale currently going for the AMD Ryzen 5800X3D. At the time of writing, you can buy the Ryzen 5800X3D from antonline’s eBay store for just $365 USD.
In short, this is one of the best gaming CPUs you can buy right now, and that’s thanks to a unique new design. At first glance, the 5800X3D may appear similar to the 5800X. It wields eight cores and 16 threads, however, it trades lower clock speeds for a massive L3 cache increase. And as the reviews show, games love cache for boosting framerates.
CPU-intensive games like Microsoft Flight Simulator, Cities: Skylines, and Cyberpunk 2077 would certainly benefit from a beefy unit such as this.
More for less
It’s known that gaming PCs aren’t cheap compared to consoles, but the ability to upgrade individual parts offers more long term value. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a perfect example of how you can reinvigorate the performance of your gaming PC by just replacing the CPU while retaining your AM4 motherboard and DDR4 memory.
That saves you from the costly upgrades of buying a Z690 or upcoming X670 motherboard and DDR5 system memory. What’s particularly impressive about the AMD Ryzen 5800X3D is the value it offers while also providing a gaming experience that even outperforms Intel’s best 12th gen CPUs in most games.
Although the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has the eye-watering MSRP of $450.00 USD, But, antonline offers the CPU through its eBay store for $429.99 USD, with a further 15% off when using the code “LABORDAYSAVE” at checkout. This brings the price down to a solid $365.49 USD, which is roughly $85 worth of savings. You can then take the money saved on this deal to buy another bit of tech, or perhaps snag a few new games.
After the last two years of seeing prices of various pieces of gaming hardware hit all-time highs with limited availability, it’s great to see the situation normalizing and availability becoming more plentiful again. DDR5 pricing is expected to drop closer to DDR4 prices, and PCIe 4.0 SSDs are finally more affordable, with more price drops expected.
