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

"When the Ryzen 3000 Series was released the processor that was given the most praise was the Ryzen 9 3900X as it should. The 12-core, 24-thread monster pretty much destroyed the competition. While this processor is great, not everyone has $499 to spend..."
