If you have an old PC running and don't want to spend too much money on upgrades, this CPU might fit your budget. 
Yes Ryzen is a much better cpu, but the price will be double if you were to compare the AMD 8350 @ $69.99 after rebate vs Ryzen 1500x @ $169.99

There is a limit of 3 rebate per household.

The best deal I found in purchasing this CPU will be at Microcenter where you get additional $30 off when purchase CPU with motherboard.

Microcenter AMD 8350 Black Edition with Wraith Cooler $99.99  - $30 rebate and $30 off combo discount if purchase with motherboard

Microcenter AMD 8320E Black Edition $79.99 - $30 Rebate and save $30 when bundled with a compatible motherboard

Will fit only the AMD AM3+ socket motherboards, and some system boards are limited to the 95 watt processors.

Decent upgrade option for someone with a low end FX 4xxx series quad core (thinking about it myself).

Micro center does NOT show any AM3+ boards in inventory.
