Whether you’re sprucing up an existing build or piecing together a new one, these CPU Cyber Monday deals 2021 are here to help deliver all the processing oomph you’ll need at a bargain price.
Defying all expectations and a good dose of logic, CPUs have more or less sidestepped the silicon shortage, meaning it’s actually possible to buy one at MSRP. Unlike GPUs, you’ll have a choice, which is currently more than most would have expected six months ago. As ideal opportunities to buy a CPU go, this year’s a winner, and we have all the top deals to help you find the biggest savings.

Where do we expect to see the best CPU Cyber Monday deals?
AMD has announced a Ryzen Zen 3 refresh, involving a 3D chiplet tech cache uplift, set for 2022. Great news for those on the hunt for a CPU this Cyber Monday: we could see rather tasty discounts to allow retailers to sell off older stock. Realistically this could equate to some of the best prices we’ve seen, well, ever on the current Ryzen Zen 3 bunch. Especially with the competitive Intel 12th Gen launch, AMD will want to fight back with their pricing before their next launch.
That said, logic also dictates that the sharpest markdowns will land on older previous-gen 9th/10th Intel and Zen 2 AMD chips. An early deal suggesting as much is BestBuy’s $50 off the AMD Ryzen 3700X. On the Intel side, Amazon UK is currently offering an Intel Core i5-11600K with a healthy discount that drops the price to just under £230. These are available weeks before the sales event starts in earnest, so expect even lower prices on Cyber Monday itself.
