The 5600X might be the budget offering from the 5000 series, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth overlooking. Priced at just under $300, it’s more expensive than its Intel counterpart, but if rumors are to be believed, will bring a better performance along with it. The 5600X comes with 4.6GHz Clock Boost, 35MB Cache, 65W TDP, and 6 cores/12 threads which all come together to make this an excellent budget gaming CPU.

AMD Ryzen 5600X Release Date

Dr. Lisa Su announced in AMD’s big next-gen presentation that the Ryzen 9 5600X will release on November 5th, 2020 for an RRP of $299.
