Just when you thought it was impossible to get hold of next-gen computer hardware in general, Scan pulls this incredible CPU deal out of the bag. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is an 8-core, 16-thread monster processor, built using AMD's top-notch Zen 3 architecture. And right now, the Ryzen 7 5800X is a fantastic £420 at Scan.
It comes with DDR4 3,200MHz memory support, and has base clock speeds of 3.8GHz, topping out with a 4.7GHz boost. The Ryzen 7 5800X also comes packing 32MB L3 Cache, which helps ensure that all those little chiplets are fed with data constantly. That much cache also really helps in games.
This is a seriously powerful CPU, with great IPC improvements giving it an advantage in thread-aware applications over previous generation models like the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT. In Cinebench R20 rendering it throws up a multi-core score of 6054, and the single-core score sits at 626—which is miles ahead of the previous gen.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU | 8-core, 16-thread | £420
While not the most powerful CPU out there, this Zen 3 processor can hold its own where it counts. With a stellar GPU combo, it's bound to deliver over 70 FPS on ultra settings at 1080p; it doesn't do terribly at 1440p either. Its single- and multi-thread capabilities are top-tier. It wrecks the Cinebench R20 scores of AMD's previous-gen chips, along with Intel's 10th gen Core i7 10700K, alike. For 7% saved and free postage, that's a win.
Usually, you'd have to drop £449 on this CPU, but you can save yourself the best part of £30 right now and pick it up for £420. Plus, that comes with not only free delivery on your whole basket, but delivery by tomorrow if you act fast. There's a lot of strife going on across the hardware market at the moment, so we can't guarantee you'll see this price again.
