Launched in late 2020 as the world's best gaming desktop processor of that period, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is still relevant thanks to the PCIe 4.0 support provided on X570 and B550 motherboards. After the 40 percent discount, its price goes down to US$342.05, but the Uncharted game offer also applies to this Amazon sale.

Unlike other AMD processors, the Ryzen 9 5900X comes without a bundled cooler and does not provide an integrated graphics adapter. However, this 12-core unlocked processor holds a high Amazon rating of 4.8 out of 5 and, in addition to the 40 percent discount, is also included in the Uncharted game promotion. Thanks to it, all AMD Ryzen 5000 series Amazon purchases come with Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection (as long as supplies last).

The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X features 12 cores, 24 processing threads, and comes unlocked. The stock speed of 3.7 GHz can hit 4.8 GHz on a single core when boosted. This processor supports PCIe 4.0 on X570 and B550 motherboards. The Ryzen 9 5900X also features 70 MB of cache and DDR4-3200 support. The standard TDP is 105 W, but it will increase when overclocked. 

After no less than 7,296 Amazon user ratings, 91 percent awarded the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X the maximum rating, with 5 percent giving it a 4/5 score. The breakdown by features starts with the gaming score of 4.7 out of 5, followed by ease of unlocking and stability (4.6 and 4.5), and the value rating closes this section with a good score of 4.3/5.

The list price of US$569.99 currently displayed by Amazon is slightly higher than the launch price of US$549, but after applying the aforementioned discount, it goes down to US$342.05. Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection is available for US$49.99 on Steam.
