Are you looking for the Ryzen 5 5600? or the Ryzen 5 5600 price? You’ve come to the right place. The Ryzen 5 5600 release date is said to be alongside the 5800X3D and with the huge success of the 5600X, it’s going to be interesting to see how this budget monster stacks up against its bigger brother.  

Breaking news: Ryzen 5 5600 release time set for 2PM BST 4 April 2022.

As we have now learned, the Ryzen 5 5600 will not be releasing along side the 5800X3D, but rather the Ryzen 5 5500 and Ryzen 7 5700X respectively.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600 specifications

Not much is currently known about the Ryzen 5 5600 and until we have a formal announcement from AMD, this is all we have. 

Ryzen 5 5600 

  • Cores: 6
  • Threads: 12
  • Base clock speed: 3.5GHz
  • Max boost speed: 4.4GHz
  • L3 cache: 35MB
  • TDP: 65W
  • Socket: AM4

The Ryzen 5 5600 has similar specs to the 5600X but the latter is clocked slightly higher on base and boost. It’s going to be interesting to explore exactly why this CPU was released if it’s the same price as a 5600X and is clocked lower. But maybe the 5600 has an ace up its sleeve?
