AMD 5600X Reviews

OK processor, as expected.

The processor works fine. The process of purchasing it without sales tax was problematic.

Great upgrade for price

By Bryson

Upgraded from a 3600x, with a 1080TI and 32 gig RAM. CS:GO went (low settings, 165hz) from 220FPS to 700FPS. I was not expecting that much gain per dollar. I changed my settings to mid-high and am running at 350FPS still. And my computer in general has been running more smoothly on Win 11. Before I was having input lag issues, which are completely gone now. This has been one of the best single purchase upgrades I have done in quite a while. I highly recommend for anyone trying to squeeze more performance out of a slightly dated machine.

This CPU is miles better than my 12400F, but it get super hot for the simplest tasks, therefore you need a good cooling solution.

Good middle ground for gaming

Good balance between power usage and performance for gaming, Does a great job for consuming just 70-80W maximum under intense load. Recent price drop brought it down to a reasonable bargain vs other options. Especially great upgrade if you have an older AM4 board and previous gen Ryzen CPU.
