AMD Ryzen 5 5600X review: The dominant knockout

AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series CPUs have arrived, easily outperforming competing Intel chips and delivering a new level of performance for desktop PCs with the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X. With the full disruption of already existing high-end Intel chipsets, AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X offers $300 amazing hit similar to Intel’s mid-range lineup and slots in like The A gaming flagship – As you can see in our CPU benchmarks hierarchy, it beats Intel’s $488 Core i9-10900K in 1080p gaming.

The Ryzen 5 5600X takes the mid-range by storm with six cores and twelve threads powered by Zen 3 architecture built on the 7nm process. This efficient combination equates to an approximately 19% improvement in instructions per cycle (IPC), making the 5600X an easy choice for our list of top CPUs. Other subtle improvements, such as a greatly improved boost algorithm, improved memory overclocking, and a reworked cache topology erase the last traces of Intel’s performance benefits while introducing a new level of power efficiency. In fact, as we’ll detail below, the Ryzen 5 5600X is the most power-efficient desktop chipset we’ve ever tested.
