Multitask like a champ with AMD's 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 2600X processor, on sale for just $170
If your PC’s feeling a little pokey then today’s a great day to visit Amazon. The online retailer is selling the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X for $170. On top of that, you get a free copy of Tom Clancy’s: The Division 2. That’s a fantastic price for the 2600X. It retails for $250, though it usually sells for closer to $200.
The Ryzen 5 2600X rocks six CPU cores with simultaneous multi-threading to bring the total thread count to twelve, all running at a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.2GHz. That’s a whole lot of processing power that will work wonderfully for gaming, but remember this chip doesn’t have integrated graphics, so you’ll need to pair it with a graphics card. The Ryzen 5 2600x is also an absolute beast for productivity applications, including video and photo editing.
