AMD’s Ryzen 5 2600X 6-core processor sees first discount to $210 shipped (Reg. $230)

Amazon offers the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 6 core 12 thread 4.2GHz CPU for $209.99 shipped. Normally $230, this is the first major drop we’ve tracked and is the best available. AMD recently announced the second-generation of Ryzen processors, of which this is a member. Though reviews are slim here, AMD’s Ryzen platform is well-rated. We even used it in our budget gaming build.

Ryzen 5 2600X CPU features:

  • 6 Cores/12 Threads UNLOCKED
  • Frequency: 4.2 GHz Max Boost
  • Includes Wraith Spire Cooler
  • 19MB of Combined Cache
  • Socket AM4 Motherboard Required

In last year’s Ryzen release, AMD didn’t include any coolers with its “X” line of processors. These CPUs are geared toward enthusiasts that generally have a higher-end cooling solution, like big beefy air or water coolers. But, this year, AMD changed that up.
