Ryzen 7 Performance for $50? Cheap 8 Core 16 Thread CPU!
The Intel Xeon E5-2689 is a 8 Core, 16 Thread processor with performance similar to a Ryzen 7 1700, but you can buy it for around USD 50 to 60 from AliExpress or eBay. In this video we will checkout the performance in games and benchmarks, but also talk about the motherboard and RAM as it uses the LGA 2011 platform and Quad Channel memory with very high memory bandwidth, equivalent to DDR4 3200 in dual channel. The value is terrific, but do compare prices in your region to see if it's worth it.
