If you haven’t picked up one of AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 series “Zen 4” processors, now might be the time… they’re on the cheap right now with Black Friday sales, especially the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor.

Newegg and Amazon have the new Black Friday deals live, with the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X: normally $699, down to $574, the second-best Zen 4 processor in the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X: normally $549, down to $474 while the third-best Zen 4 processor in the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X: normally $399, down to $349, leaving the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X: normally $299, down to $249.

That’s not too bad, considering the Ryzen 9 7950X is a 16-core, 32-thread beast enjoying a nice 17% discount, but keep in mind that MicroCenter still gives you 32GB of DDR5 memory for free with any and all Ryzen 7000 series “Zen 4” processors.

If you consider AMD only unleashed its new Ryzen 7000 series “Zen 4” processors less than 60 days ago, it’s great for consumers — hey, you’re saving money — but AMD must not be selling anywhere near the volume that people expect. Another note: this isn’t an official or permanent discount from AMD, and just Black Friday sales… so you’ll have to get in quick.
