Today marks the launch of the new Ryzen 5 line of processors from AMD.

The Chillblast Fusion Hex is definitely the most affordable PC with a hex-core processor I have seen in a long while. Priced at £1319.99, this system has the potential to be a winner with those who want to game as well as run multi-threaded software.
