Bundled with the Wraith Stealth cooler, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X unlocked desktop processor was released in early November 2020 with a US$299 price tag. Now, Amazon has this piece of hardware available for US$190, which represents a 39 percent discount on the current list price of US$309.

Launched back in November 2020 as the fastest 6-core Ryzen desktop processor available at the time, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has a 3.7 GHz base clock and can reach up to 4.6 GHz with Precision Boost 2. The processor is unlocked and comes with a Wraith Stealth cooler that can handle the 65 W TDP with ease. However, overclocking this processor can increase the power draw and amount of generated heat significantly, so more advanced cooling solutions would be required.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X does not feature integrated graphics, so those considering it for a system build should keep this in mind. Right now, the only deal available for it on Amazon shaves off 39 percent of the US$309 list price, bringing the price down to US$190. Sadly, there is no processor + motherboard discounted bundle available, but the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is compatible with virtually all socket AM4 boards still on the market.

This processor is very popular on Amazon, with 17,083 ratings and 317 answered questions so far. Its current rating is an excellent 4.8 out of 5, with 90 percent perfect scores and 7 percent 4/5 user reviews. The breakdown by feature has four items, namely a 4.5 value for money rating, 4.6 for ease of installation and stability, as well as a 4.7 rating for gaming performance.
