The Ryzen 5 1600 is on sale at MicroCenter right now for a price of $79.99, slashed from its regular $179.99. That’s a whole $100 less and it’s nothing less than a steal.
There’s a catch
The processor is available for in-store pickups only, which means that customers won’t be able to order it from the MicroCenter website. Furthermore, the item is limited to only one per customer.
