Black Friday and Cyber Monday are almost upon us. As with every year, a massive amount of products in every imaginable category will be on sale, including CPUs. If you've been on the fence about upgrading for years (still rocking that Core i7-3770K?), this is a great time to splurge on a new processor.AMD shook up the CPU market last year with its first-generation Ryzen chips, so this year we've seen increased competition from Intel with its eighth and ninth-generation Core processors (aka, Coffee Lake). For the first time ever, six cores are standard on Core i5 chips, making the i5-8400 the best mainstream CPU for gaming.AMD has also responded with its second-gen Ryzen lineup, which includes the 2600X and 2700X. These are modest upgrades over last year's processors, but it's nice to see AMD continuing to push the envelope. They also deliver excellent value, especially in cost per core.In this post, we'll go over what kind of sales you can expect to see in the weeks ahead, and what you … [Read more...] about Black Friday 2018 CPU deals: upgrade your PC’s brain
