AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series is officially launching today! If you haven’t already seen our review of the Ryzen 9 5900X be sure to check it out! In this review we will be taking a look at the mid-range Ryzen 5 5600X. This chip is really exciting to me as it is effectively replacing the Ryzen 3 3600X which was an excellent mid-range processor and one that I recommended to many people. The Ryzen 5 5600X is a 6-core, 12-thread processor with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and boost clock of 4.6 GHz. AMD is calling this processor the definitive choice for gamers who just want to game and at $299 we’ll see if it makes a good argument for that!
