AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core Reportedly Offers Better Gaming Performance Than Intel Core i7-10700 8 Core CPU, Ryzen 5 5600 Comes In Early 2021 With a $220 US Price

In addition to the Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core CPU, AMD is also readying the Ryzen 5 5600 which aims to be one of the best mainstream gaming chips under $250 US. The report comes from a China-based tech outlet (via Harukaze5719) which reports that the chip is expected to launch sometime in 2021.

AMD Readies Ryzen 5 5600 6 Core CPU For Around $220 US, Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core Offers Better Gaming Performance Than the Intel Core i7-10700 8 Core CPU

First up, the report talks about the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X which is a CPU that has been made official by AMD on 8th October. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X features 6 cores and 12 threads with a base clock of 3.70 GHz and a boost clock of 4.60 GHz. Compared to the Ryzen 5 3600XT, the CPU has a 0.1 GHz lower base clock but a 0.1 GHz higher boost clock. The Ryzen 5000 CPUs are also based on the new and improved Zen 3 core architecture featuring a more efficient 7nm process node from TSMC. It’s still based on the chiplet design and comes with a 12nm I/O die.

The CPU features a 35 MB of total cache (L2 + L3) and will feature a single CCD (Core Complex Die). The CPU will come with a 65W TDP and include a boxed cooler in the package with a retail cost of $299 US, available on the 5th of November.

During its official presentation, AMD compared the Ryzen 5 5600X to the Intel Core i5-10600K, both of which have a retail price of $299 US. The Ryzen 5 5600X is said to offer 19% better single-thread performance per dollar, 20% better multi-threaded performance per dollar, and also 13% better gaming performance (1080p) per dollar values.

The source however says that the Ryzen 5 5600X has enough muscle to even tackle the 8 core Core i7-10700 which retails for $50 US more and has higher clocks up to 4.8 GHz and even higher power limits than the Ryzen 5 5600X. The Ryzen 5000 processors also have overclocking enabled which is only available on the “K” unlocked SKUs from Intel. Intel’s 400-series boards do feature power limit adjustments to allow for higher base clocks but that’s not proper overclocking as some users seem to call it these days. Overall, the Ryzen 5 5600X’s $299 US price seems to be justifiable if the figures in gaming turn out to be true.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600 6 Core CPU Specifications:

There’s also the AMD Ryzen 5 5600 which is said to launch early next year. The CPU will feature 6 cores and 12 threads and slightly lower clocks than the Ryzen 5 5600X. The CPU will feature a TDP of 65W and is said to hit a retail price of $220 US. The Ryzen 5 5600 will most definitely feature OC support making the performance figures end up close to the Ryzen 5 5600X.

If that’s the case, then the Ryzen 5 5600 has the potential to become the best mainstream chip for 2021, outpacing the Ryzen 5 3600/3600X which are some of the most popular mainstream gaming processors out in the market today. We will keep you posted if we hear about more Ryzen 5000 SKUs.
