If this isn’t the deal for you though, then it’s worth checking out the Trusted roundup of the best Black Friday deals we’ve seen this weekend. We may be entering into the last knockings, so it’s worth taking a look.

As the most affordable 8 core and 16 thread CPU in AMD’s Ryzen 5000 lineup, the 5700X is a solid choice for more intensive workloads such as content creation and AAA gaming, giving you more capacity for those workloads compared to some of AMD’s lower-end options. To get better performance, you will be spending a fair amount more for one of AMD’s -X3D chips specifically designed for gaming, which then also compromises performance in other areas to a degree, such as for content creation workloads including video encoding. For generalists, the 5700X is a great chip to use for a new build or to upgrade an existing one.

It’s also worth noting that opting for the 5700X for a new processor for your new build also opens you up to an affordable ecosystem awash with capable B550 and X570 chipset motherboards which won’t cost the earth, as well as DDR4 RAM which is peanuts, and PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs which are continuously coming down in price, as our roundup of the best Black Friday SSD deals demonstrates. In short, therefore, the 5700X offers great performance for its low price, and inserts you into an ecosystem with lots of affordable choices for other components, too.
