The New AMD 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU LineupThe new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs have arrived boasting higher performance gains over its predecessor lineup. With higher speeds, more memory and wider bandwidth the new Ryzen CPUs look to improve on and upgrade the way you relax, work and play. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor includes 6 CPU Cores with 12 threads and a base clock of 3.6GHz that can be boosted to 4.2GHz. The new CPU's are backwards compatible with older motherboards thanks to the same AM4 slot socket however with the newly released chipset of X570 motherboards you can maximize the power the Ryzen CPUs have to offer. Support for DDR4 Memory continues but with the new Ryzen CPUs comes the new PCIe 4.0 Version which has improved the speeds of which your PCIe components such as graphics cards and some storage solutions communicate with the motherboard. Blur the line between elite gaming performance and workstation-class content creation with the most advanced desktop processors in the world.

Reviews
AMD Ryzen 5 3600, AM4, Zen 2, 6 Core, 12 Thread, 3.6GHz, 4.2GHz Turbo, 32MB L3, PCIe 4.0, 65W, CPU, +Wraith Stealth is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended for gaming and light workloads! With six cores and six threads this is an excellent choice of CPU for every gamer, even those with an RTX 2080Ti. The vast majority of games do not benefit from more than 12 threads, so this is excellent at every quality level. The only complaint I have is that the included stock cooler is excessively loud, and may be insufficient for cooling for this with non-airflow-optimised (e.g. front mesh) cases. I strongly recommend getting at least a cheap air cooler for a much quieter and cooler experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value CPU Went with this CPU for my first gaming PC. Heard a lot of good things about AMD CPUs for gaming and it just so happened the majority of the PC build videos I had watched on youtube were using the Ryzen 5 3600 as the best budget CPU! The stock cooler provides decent thermals and it looks good too which is a bonus. It's a solid CPU at an unbeatable price. (paired with an MSI B450M Mortar Max motherboard and an RTX 2060 - worked straight out the box).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Unbeatable for the price, read a lot of reviews about how good it was, but experiencing it for myself has been great. Quality product, in my opinion the best valued CPU on sale at the moment.
Date published: 2020-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Bought to go in an Asus Tuf Gaming X570 Plus motherboard with 32GB of Crucial ECC RAM and an Asus Geforce GTX 1650 graphics card. It's fast running Slackware64, kernel 5.4.47. Installation was fairly easy, but attaching the heatsink was a bit fiddly and I needed an extra pair of hands. Note that these CPUs are designed to run quite hot (AMD says up to 95C) so don't be alarmed when you see the temperature under load. There are stories that the stock cooler is very noisy, but compared to my other machines it's actually pretty quiet.
Date published: 2020-06-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent performance, cooler isn't optimal for such a hot running CPU Stock voltages fluctuate a lot and as a result temperature spikes with this CPU. The heat-sink isn't large enough to deal with these temperature spikes considering how hot this CPU gets. As the fan is so small it is very noisy when keeping things at a decent temperature. Can't complain too much con considering the price to performance. 100% would recommend a third party cooler with this CPU
Date published: 2020-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best value for money CPU on the market right now for people building a gaming PC. I have been running this CPU matched up with a RX 5700 xt for over a month now and it has been crushing anything I throw at it. This is my first time moving away from the Intel ecosystem and I couldn't be happier, the stock fan is plenty enough if you aren't planning on overclocking. Great product thoroughly recommend!
Date published: 2020-05-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intel to AMD Upgraded from my Intel i7 2600k, massive improvement in speed and processing power, running at stock speed with factory cooler. Playing latest titles like BFV, COd Mw, wow etc temp steady under load for hours

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really decent quality, price range Just perfect for that medium performance, productivity and gaming golden medium. decent power consumption

Questions & Answers

Motherboard

Is this compatible with the b450 tomahawk max and will it need a bios update if so, can this cpu support that bios
Asked by: Ethan8273
I bought this cpu with the b450 Tomahawk Max, I didn't need a bios update, it just worked straight from the box. I recommend to install the latest chipset drivers though, it helps stablise the voltage and so on.

Are Scan able to flash b450 or x470 Mobos to support these chips?

Most older (non 570) boards will support the new ryzen chips, but will require bios updates to do this. Will Scan (on request) be able to perform these updates so that the buyers don't need to also purchase an additional Zen or Zen+ chip just to flash the bios? I'm aware some Mobos have the capability to update the bios via USB but this is usually just on expensive high end parts.
Asked by: Adamantois3000
Can't comment on Scan being able to Flash Bios for you but I did read that AMD can send you an older chip to run on your MB so that you can boot up and install the latest bios. Then just return the chip to them. Not sure if they still do it but it was an option. (obviously if you kept the chip they would charge you for it). Not sure if it helps either but I'm running the Ryzen 5 3600 on my MSI B450M Mortar Max board straight out the box, no bios update.

Does this come with Xbox Game Pass

Asked by: EsaY
you can download xbox game pass on to your pc from xbox themselves (as long as you pay for the monthly subscription). You don't get it free with any CPUs.
