Critic Reviews

"In conclusion, the Ryzen 5 5600X is a pocket-rocket and will impress you in ways you can't imagine. It punches way above its weight in most tests and is the only processor you'll need if you're building a next-gen build with a fairly expensive RTX 30-series or RX 6000 series graphics card."

Critic Reviews

It is also a great choice if you are building your own PC in a compact case since it has a 65W TDP. The Ryzen 5 2600 is more than just a quality gaming CPU; with its multi-threaded chops, it also has a good value chip."
