Currys’ Black Friday deals have arrived, and while the computing deals include a lot of discounted laptops that aren’t really a great fit for modern gaming, there are a few nice AMD CPU deals hidden in there for PC enthusiasts. Three AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processors are discounted, if you’re thinking of building a new gaming PC, upgrading your old one (not in the UK? Scroll down for deals specific to your region).
We want to draw particular attention to the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. Currys has price-matched Amazon on this excellent mid-range CPU, which we awarded five stars in our review. If you want an affordable 6-core processor with fantastic performance, it’s had a price drop of £36.
AMD Ryzen 5 3600X:
£236 £200 at Currys
A great CPU for a midrange gaming PC. The 3600X comes with support for ultra-fast fourth-generation M.2 SSDs, some tasty boost clocks, and (like all the Ryzen CPUs on this list) an included AMD Wraith cooler.View Deal
AMD Ryzen 5 3400G:
£133 £120 at Currys
Top-notch integrated graphics. AMD’s next-gen APU can carry a whole PC on its back, providing powerful Radeon Vega 11 graphics and auto overclocking up to 4.2GHz courtesy of the Ryzen Master app.
AMD Ryzen 7 3800X:
£385 £340 at Currys
£45 off a high-end part. The 3800X is a beast for CPU-bound professional tasks as well as gaming, coming packaged with an RGB-loaded Wraith Prism cooler that keeps this chip cool enough for a spot of overclocking.View Deal
