In China, a big sale 618 is approaching, within which a wide variety of equipment and devices, including components, could be purchased at a discount. Here are a couple of examples.
The elderly, but still powerful 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor has become more affordable by $125: on the JD.com site, its cost has decreased from $360 to $235.
Another interesting suggestion for those who prefer a fresh Alder Lake CPU based system. The Asus TUF Gaming B660M-Plus WIFI D4 Motherboard Kit, previously $360, is on sale for $265. Of the advantages of the motherboard – the presence of two M.2 slots and four slots for DDR4 RAM modules – you do not need to buy more expensive DDR5.
