£267.67Amazon Deals

Posted 20th May
  • The Ryzen 7 2700X has the highest multiprocessing performance you can get on a mainstream desktop PC
  • Frequency: Base Clock Speed 3.7 GHz, 4.3 GHz Max Boost
  • Includes Wraith Prism Cooler with LED
  • 20MB of Combined Cache
  • Socket AM4 Motherboard Required
  • Built for gamers, creators, and PC enthusiasts
  • Featuring True Machine Intelligence to optimize responsiveness every millisecond

Almost the cheapest it's been through Amazon according to the camels, if you want the peace of mind of buying it from Amazon rather than a third-party seller this seems like a pretty good deal.

EDIT: I've seen a few people unsure about the compatibility of the AM4 platform so just wanted to clear a few things up. When AMD first announced the platform (back in 2016 I believe) one of the selling points was that the AM4 socket would support future processors for the foreseeable future (until at least 2020).

Come on it's not a deal.. this cpu sits at this price level for a while now (at least two weeks). Been even cheaper. Cold for me.

With new one on the way it would be silly to buy one now at this price

Good price - have some heat !

I hope the price falls further once the next gen Zen processors come out this summer !
The 2700 (non X) was on sale for £160 ... the X version nearly £100 more ???

The £160 price, all the orders were rejected
What? up until yesterday it was £265.65 at amazon and as of now it's cheaper at Aria.
Why people still insist on using unreliable camel and is beyond me.

The price has slowly but surely been coming down, a month ago it was floating around £280. I know it's not the cheapest it has ever been, and I know Ryzen gen 3 is 'just' around the corner, but this is still a solid cpu. If you can find it cheaper somewhere else let me know and I'll update the deal

Snap! Just built mine a few days ago and it's a beast !!

With a bit of luck those of us with 450 or 470 motherboards should be future proof to upgrade to 3series when they get released and prices start to fall. But for me this is way more than I need and should last a good few years.

This core war is crazy, most people would never notice a big difference surfing the web on this or a dual core i3 from 2015 (albeit with decent amount of ram and fast SSD).

Even gaming, it's probably better to have less cores but higher clock... This new rig benchmarks comparable to a 2016/2017 i7 which can now be bought for peanuts. For people on a budget, I would recommend going for a much cheaper second hand intel but put a decent GPU in it (GTX 1080 / 1070 can now be bought at a decent price, or Vega 64 / 56 depending on what resolution you want to game at). 27inch 1440p seems to be the sweet spot for me.

This CPU is really only worth it for Virtualization or multitasking or other CPU intensive things (editing, coding, etc...).

Also, I'd highly recommend investing in a fast SSD, even if it's small capacity (256gig) and a cheaper brand, just use it as the system drive. That makes a hell of a difference to performance on any pc...

Finally, the ram, strongly recommend going dual channel and fast chips. 16gig is probably more than enough for most people also. And even 8 gig gets the job done. (Better to have 2x8 gig than 1x16gig for example). I use a lot more because of running VM's.

You missing my point a little...
It's beed cheaper even two days ago.. BUT there is good chance it will go down much more within next week or two (that's what I'm hoping for). So unless you can't wait that.. it's not a good deal now.

Yeah man I’ve got NVME drive ready, and 16GB ram ready

Waiting for a quality PSU to drop in price and still not decided on GPU!!!

I got a cheap Amazon warehouse deal on a Corsair 1000i PSU , open box but seemed new. And works really well.

I actually now run a cheap 43" 4k TV, instead of 4x1080p monitors because I cant stand the bezels and I'm way more productive that way.

I bought a used GTX 1080 off gumtree. I wasn't expecting much at 4k but actually my games all run at 60-80fps but that's probably because I don't game much and I like to just jump into a quick match of COD now and then. I'm sure the GTX probably won't perform well on newer AAA titles. And TBH, I don't really care. Everyone has different needs!
AMD keynote is literally 7 days away - I got the 2700x for the same price back in Feb with Division 2 key ( sold for £35) so this is hardly a deal really. Great CPU however - Zen2 should be a massive step foward in the industry along with Navi.

Do you have a 4K TV that can display 80fps (and without tearing)?
Nope.. don't need one. As I mentioned, everyone has different needs.. if gaming is a priority, then a decent GTx 1080ti or equivalent and a 4k monitor (not a 4k TV) is advisable..
As mentioned previously, the sweet spot does tend to be Vega 56 or GTX 1070 with a 24 or 27 inch 1440p and Freesync/gsync and high refresh rates (120hz+).

For me, productivity on a budget was my priority. And my setup suits my needs in 4k to replace 4x1080p monitors.
Another option for large screen gaming might be a projector, I noticed that there are some decent projectors with low input lag. 1080p projectors can be had now for the same price as medium budget gaming monitor and 4k is still expensive. Need to also include cost of screen, extra long cables, mounting brackets etc..
I got the LG 43" deal which was on here not too long ago , it has 11.7ms input lag on gaming mode which is fantastic by any 'normal' TV standards. Yes is is limited to 60hz and yes there is probably screen tearing but for £265 it definitely does the job for me.

Interesting thought... Worth studying.

That said, the most recent update to my MSI X470 motherboard was a single line in the changelog: 'update for upcoming processors'.
I certainly feel optimistic!

Why 2X8 is better than 1X16 because of dual channel? In that case 4X4 better ?

Dual channel memory doubles the maximum memory bandwidth over single channel memory, this is only noticeable in a few usage scenarios tbf, but it is noticeable. You are correct 4x4 (quad channel) is, theoretically, better than 2x8 but quad channel is only supported on high end enthusiast/server grade components, so you won't see quad channel on mainstream consumer builds as it's just too expensive.

Word of warning especially when choosing to go quad channel . Make sure you buy ram which is tested/certified by the motherboard manufacturer. I have 4x16Gb 3466mhz which only works at 2900mhz max.
