With a price of $200, the Ryzen 5 3600 is the price/performance king in its segment. It offers more application performance than anything comparable and is close enough in gaming. Pair that with the slightly lower platform cost on AMD than on Intel (don't bother with the expensive X570 motherboards), as well as the improved memory compatibility,...

The Ryzen 5 3600 is an excellent 65W chip for small form factor enthusiasts, packing quite the punch in a small thermal envelope. After simple one-click overclocking, it offers nearly the same performance as its more expensive counterpart, but at a $50 discount. That makes the Ryzen 5 3600 the uncontested value champ in its price range.
