  • Low Price
  • Excellent Performance
  • Low-Power Consumption
  • Backward Compatibility


The Ryzen 5 3600 is the price/performance king in its segment. It offers more application performance than anything comparable and is close enough in gaming. You get 6 cores and 12-threads based on the all-new ZEN2 micro-architecture, and that means fast turbos and proper IPC. An added benefit as well is even better (lower) overall power consumption.
