In this review of AMD's new Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, we look at the remainder of Intel's i5 lineup -- primarily composed of the i5-9600K -- and run generational benchmarks versus AMD's older R5 2600/2600X and R5 1600 CPUs. All modern CPUs on the chart also have overclock numbers accompanying them. Memory was 3200MHz CL14 with manually configured secondary and tertiary timings for all bench platforms, ensuring data accuracy and consistency. 3200MHz is the highest frequency that works on everything we benchmarked in this list, allowing us to control a variable while still using a reasonable memory speed. We'll do separate benchmarking on memory scaling. In the meantime, this benchmark tests the AMD R5 3600 for power consumption, Blender performance, Premiere, Photoshop, 7-Zip, V-Ray, GCC code compiling, and more, alongside gaming benchmarks versus Intel. Our reviews of the AMD R9 3900X, R7 3700X, AMD RX 5700 XT, and AMD RX 5700 are forthcoming or have already been published, depending on when you check this video. Be sure to check back regularly to catch all of the reviews -- they're mostly done! AMD vs. Intel 2019 has officially started.

Tbh i'm dissapointed in the 3600.. mine wont even hit 4.3 its fine at 4.25 at 1.4 but even going to 4.275 it just wont do it no matter how much volts i give it tried up to 1.6 and just crashes cinebench.
I hope that it has something to do with the shitty glitched out bios msi spat out and that they will update it soon but idk.
Mathew McDonald
What temps is everyone getting? my 3600 is idleing at 40C with the stock cooler. I feel like this is to high?

Steve you training to become a doubletime rapper? (: WIE GEHTS

That Civilization VI test is interesting, as that's a real world example of how long does a thing take with a new CPU. Wish there was at least 1 more example of such a calculation. Well done! :)
Pedro Bona
I see you also overclocked your CPU with a piece of tape.
Horazon
great review... could you make a test on gaming while redering video / watching youtubE? etc.
Gaming With Warning
Hello can you answer my question?Are ryzen 5 3600 and rx590 are bottleneck???NEED ANSWER ASAP TO BUILD MY PC.(SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH😢😢😢)
Donald Weldon
It will be interesting as applications and games begin to use more cores in the near future if even the older gen Ryzen chips narrow or move ahead of the ≈ Intel chips.
James H
Yea, awesome chip.... 7nm 3600 6C/12T equal to or SLOWER than 14nm 9600K 6C.
A Tem
this cpu is the best all rounder this season.
Westane
SLOW DOWN! ... Just me?
Johnny Wong
I want to know if the 3600x extra $50 price tag is worth it. Especially considering the OC headroom is zilch.
iyaramonk
Is there any reason to suspect 3600x's PBO singlethread performance is better than the 3600 overclocked?
JaayOnPC
Get a good motherboard start off with 3600 eventually get a 3900x when wanting to do more or just for bragging rights..
Sevenhills
Help me decide please I beg you 2200g for 90$, 2400g for 140$, 3200g for 120$ or 3400g for 190$ Im not that competent about PC builds, I tried to read a lot in forums, but cant make final decision
Sheikh Usamah
Please Overclock the R5 3600 & R5 3600x and compare the performance using a RX 5700 XT 8GB and please also include the RAM variation of 2666MHz & 3200MHz
PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE
tyson505
Do you think this CPU is a better value for gaming and single-threaded workloads than an Intel Core i5 9400f which is only $157?

Pcpartpicker says the Ryzen 5 3600 is selling for 199.00, and the intel processor that is the closes to it price wise is the i5-7500 which is selling for 199.59.. So that is the processor that Ryzen 5 3600 is competing with and should be compared to.
The Ryzen 5 3600X is selling for 248.00 and the i5-9600K is going for 249.69, so those are the comparisons that should be happening at this time.
MarkZeds
So let me get this right. The 3600 is the best cpu for gaming AMD has currently? This will be my last build I do. My previous one was almost 10 years ago with the Phenom 2 X4 955.
