After the success of their AM5 motherboard bundles, Microcenter is expanding its offerings to include Intel’s 12th Generation and AMD’s Ryzen AM4 CPUs. The most recent Microcenter deals include a free ASUS Z690 Motherboard with Intel 12th Gen Core i7 CPUs and a free Gigabyte B450M Board with AMD Ryzen 5 3600.
Microcenter recently ran an offer in which customers could save up to $150 US on AMD Ryzen 7000 processors and AM4 motherboards and also receive a free DDR5 memory kit. Now, the business offers two new packages aimed at Intel’s 12th Generation and AMD’s AM4 Ryzen CPUs. The retailer is starting with the Intel package, wherein any Intel 12th Gen Core i7 CPU is accompanied by a free ASUS Z690-PLUS motherboard.
Microcenter claims that buyers may save $360 US by purchasing an Intel Core i7-12700K, which includes a motherboard and a CPU, for $350 US. A highly powerful motherboard with a decent collection of features, the ASUS Z690-PLUS TUF WiFI will be more than sufficient for most users and gamers.
The second offer is limited to AMD’s AM4 platform and includes a free Gigabyte B450M WiFi motherboard with the purchase of an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU. You may save up to $124 US with this offer, and the entire package costs only $130 US. This is an amazing price for budget builders and gamers, and albeit being a few years old, the Ryzen 5 3600 is still a good 6-core CPU capable of budget-tier gaming performance.
AMD just announced formal price decreases across the whole Ryzen 5000 CPU family, and Intel’s 12th Gen CPUs have already been lowered since the debut of the 13th Gen CPU family. There are various offers available that include a motherboard, memory kits, and even GPUs. These Microcenter deals are only available with in-store purchases in the various US outlets.
