AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Processor Reviewed at AMD3D

Our sister site has published a review on the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor. Check out the full review here.

Today, we’ll be taking a look at the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor, and we’ll be comparing the performance analysis between this processor and two others, including … the Ryzen 7 3700X and an Intel Core i9-10900K.

The Ryzen 5 5600X Processor is based on AMD’s latest Vermeer core (Zen 3 architecture), and it’s targeted at mainstream users, and gamers who want the best performance over price. It features 6-cores/12-threads and operates on a base frequency of 3.7 GHz with a max boost speed of 4.6 GHz. It also supports PCIE 4.0 and comes with 3MB of L2 cache and a massive 32MB of L3 cache. And what’s amazing about this processor is the incredibly low TDP of only 65W (power consumption), making it one of the most energy efficient gaming processor available on the market. *applause*


Verdict and Conclusion

If there’s one processor you need to buy for your gaming PC, then go get yourself an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. This is one helluva processor, both in terms of price and performance. And with a price tag of only USD $299, it’s easily going to make its way to become the bargain of the century … no joke!



Mmm, let’s see why I came to this conclusion … Need I say more?

  • 6 cores / 12 threads
  • Base Clock: 3.7 GHz
  • Max Boost: 4.6 GHz
  • L3 Cache: 32MB
  • 7nm FinFET
  • PCIE 4.0 Support
  • TDP: 65W
  • Wraith Stealth CPU cooler INCLUDED!
  • Drop-in upgrade for previous-gen 400-series motherboards (and possibly 300-series motherboard too)
  • Price: USD $299!

One of the most exciting news this week, is a rumor that depicts AMDS’s Ryzen 5000 processors allegedly working on older 300-series motherboards. If this is true, it could be a real game changer for thousands of users still using motherboards with the 300-series chipsets. Let’s hope there’s some truth in it, I would love to see mass adoption of AMD’s latest 5000-series processors for all gamers.

There’s a saying … ‘action speaks louder than words‘, and this so true with the Ryzen 5 5600X. During our benchmarks, Ryzen 5 5600X produced an impressive score of 7,954 on PCMark 10 with a Cinebench score of 1,821. For Passmark 9, we got a very good score of 6,835, while GeekBench 5 scores for single and multi-core, we got a score of 1,560 and 7,966, respectively. All-in-all, the Ryzen Ryzen 5 5600X is quite a beast to say the least!

If you look at the above list of pros, there’s no denying the Ryzen 5 5600X has a lot going for it. Retailing at around USD $299, the price over performance is truly outstanding. I don’t think there’s any Intel processor out there that can beat it in this price range.


Final Words

AMD has again answered its critics and delivered one of the best gaming processor we’ve seen to date. The Ryzen 5 5600X features all of AMD’s latest technologies, while offering excellent value, amazing performance and seamless compatibility with both the 500-series and 400-series motherboards.
