Six Zen 3 cores beating eight Zen 2 Cores? That's exactly what's happening with the Ryzen 5 5600X. AMD's massive IPC gain helped it overcome a two-core deficitm, even in productivity tests. The Ryzen 5 5600X redefines what you really need for a high-end gaming PC.

Wow, this CPU looks tasty. The starting price is kind of high for a 6 core, but as the production ramps up and Zen 2 stocks get reduced, it will definitely normalize. Not bad, not bad at all.

A bit too pricey to be the king of bang for buck gaming. Maybe 5600 non-X would be the new sweet spot.

Unlike other Zen 3 processors launched today, the Ryzen 5 5600X includes a heatsink in the box. The Wraith Stealth cooling solution is suitable for the 65 W TDP of the Ryzen 5 5600X.
The retail Ryzen 5 5600X box does not include a cooler. Luckily, it can be paired with a fairly big selection of AM4-compatible coolers that have been released since 2017. Just make sure the cooler can handle thermal loads of around 65 W.
Which one is it?

Can you please, please include MS Flight simulator 2020 benchmarks (or just write it down here in the forum)? FS 2020 has been very pro Intel CPU game compared to Zen 1/2 and I'd really love to see if that has changed. That's the only question mark I have left when deciding between 5600X and I7 10700F, being the fact that they're priced equally. I'd appreciate it soooo much. btw. your test was brilliant, as always, thank you :)

yeah keep posting that graph into every thread, maybe you will convince someone that the 5000 series lineup is indeed a geyming king

Not enough to make anyone really need to get this over their current i7-8700+ or Ryzen 3600+ but makes me want to see what AMD can cook up at the $200 price point.

Value and Conclusion page, 3rd paragraph:

", by simply addressing improving the inner workings on the CPU cores. "

When I read that, it doesn't sound right. I don't think you need both "addressing" and "improving". I suppose the sentence would work with just one or the other....

Suggested changes:
", by simply addressing the inner workings on the CPU cores. "
Or
", by simply improving the inner workings on the CPU cores. "
Or maybe by adding the word "and"
", by simply addressing and improving the inner workings on the CPU cores."

Otherwise very nice review, the 5600X is pretty impressive. If the 5800X wasn't $500 I'd go that route, so right now it's looking like I'll be picking up a 5600X when I do a new build here soon.

switzerland pricing (in order) 303chf .... that's a mere 3chf more than what did cost my 6600K at launch ...

also for those who are "intel still beat them!!!!" ... yeah ... again ... 1 to 7fps gape is abyssal and define the gaming king

And how exactly is this relevant in 5600x vs 10700 discussion?
and how a 10700 is relevant versus a 5600X (for me the 10700 is 100chf more ... ok ok .... situational :laugh: )

Not enough to make anyone really need to get this over their current i7-8700+ or Ryzen 3600+ but makes me want to see what AMD can cook up at the $200 price point.
i will gladly take that over my 6600K that's a given, if i had a 3600X? mmhhh maybe not, indeed ...

la meme chose en anglais please :p

although hilarious but the reviews on TPU are showing AMD as being on top ... if you mean the conclusion? ... i never read the conclusion pro and cons from most reviewer are subjective in many case

example :
the no igp cons is not really a cons for me (the one in my 6600k is a deadweight since the day i got it )
the OC cons is not really a cons when we look at certain games in the chart, although again situational

the price increase cons is a correct one a 3600XT is 60chf cheaper and might be a better option for me indeed (but no 10XXX are options ... their price is still overinflated where i live ... ) since the differences in performance is minor (although still better than versus Intel similar performance offering ... ) a 10600K? mmhhh ... probably no... i do not want to "rent an OC" again :laugh: (joking but my 6600k got the famous "no more OC possible" microcode update from Intel via WU ...:laugh: )

RNDA2 with infinity cache is going to skew the game benchmark testing a bit that'll need to re-evaluated at some stage. That's a little bit of a mixed bag scenario too for both CPU/GPU sides of testing. In the situations where you've got the appropriate hardware to take advantage of it then it will certainly show some positive perks and value though. I think overall the 5600X is a good chip, but the value for dollar isn't exactly where it needs to be. On the really positive side the multi-thread power consumption results for the chip is remarkably good very nearly half of the TDP of the i9-10900K. The end result is extremely great class leading multi-threaded energy usage. The cost barrier is the biggest issue with it at least while not factoring in the infinity cache role and impact that we'll see more on and know about later the shifts the value narrative a bit "if" utilized with proper hardware.

Would have loved to get one to replace my 1600AE, but that 299USD MSRP makes it 333EUR over at my end.
70% price bump over the regular 3600 I ordered. Yeah no...

For the asking price, it's easier to get 10700 (non-K), which has 8 cores and apparently is still better at games if you look at those charts.
±3% is about as good as nothing within the games tested by TPU, verses all games in general. You will see some games where the 5600X is faster, and some where the 10700(non-k) is faster. Productivity gives the 5800X a fairly clear 7% win over the 10700. It's an easy choice if you do any sort of productivity work.

Now that both Intel & AMD are at the EOL for their respective sockets, platform is the only real differentiating factor for gaming between the two at this point, and the only real differentiating factor between Z390 & B550/X570 is PCIe 4.0, which currently doesn't really make any difference in gaming(or most storage uses for that matter) currently.

I was looking forward to upgrading and going with AMD for the first time since Athlon days... but I don't see the point if you have an Intel CPU from the last 2 generations... A couple % gains here and there doesn't seem worth the trouble of buying a whole new system.

Waiting for DDR4 speed comparison on these Ryzen 5000.

Also test done with not the best BIOS with AGESA 1.0.8.0. MSI got v1.1.0.0 non-beta from yesterday lests see...

I had a typo on the test setup page, the AGESA version is 1.1.0.0. This is corrected now

Because 5600x = 10700 msrp in US and most EU countries. So it draws direct comparison.
