    It's a good price compared to other retailers lately :)

    5600x is a whole different league above the 3600/x as well though.

    ahh fair enough. I still don't think its a $150 extra league above the 3600/x, especially at 1440p or above, but yeah I guess for video editing or synthetic bencies..

    Really? I went from a 3900x to a 5600x and I would confidently call it a significant upgrade for gaming at 1440p on my system :)

    IPC, clockspeed, single ccx, higher clock at same or lower voltage all combine to make a significant difference

    If the hardware unboxed video is to be believed, your probably gonna need at least a 3080/6800XT+ GPU to see any difference between the 3600X & 5600X @ 1440P

    Its nice and shiny but cant see myself spending 1.5-2 grand on a graphics card so the 3600 will do and that'll save another couple hundred bucks, if theirs any normality returning to the GPU market anytime soon.

    Can't see it happening for a while. By the time they catch up with this gen, they will be launching next gen.

    Like I said, I went from a cpu that was already "better" than the 3600 to the 5600x and it performs noticeably better for me in games at 1440p.

    I would 100% recommend a 5600 or better over any 3000 series chip for gaming (XT variants do keep up better though). If you want to save $200 that's fine too.

    Same, I got a 10% increase in FPS at 3440x1440 in Warzone going from a 3950X to a 5800X.

    interesting, so you went from a 12 core to a 6 core. Why did you do this? to make a profit? the extra cores had no value for you? I'm genuinely interested, I thought the 3900x would warrant at least a 5800x replacement or was it stock issues.

    As for performance differences, according to most of the 1440p benchies ive seen, the 5600x is about 8% faster in avg frames across the board in games. So I guess if your PC is primarily gaming use its a worthy sidegrade

    Cool experiment with Ryzen 5000 and high voltages over time. I think he will probably have motherboards fail before the CPU.

    Q2 looks to better for customers of TSMC 12" wafers, like AMD.

    Feeling so lucky I scored a 5900X early. I really would have preferred a 5950X but I couldn't wait for one to come up. Glad I didn't in hindsight, though when the heat dies down that's still the plan eventually.

    One thing i have found with Ryzen , ram speeds are slower .
    The timings are very good though .
    I have managed 4000 @ CL11 .
    Prefer faster speed but it was good for mathematical benches .

    The reduction in timings somewhat offsets the lower MHz by the very nature of latency, doesn't it?

    Faster speed is better for some benches .
    I know what you mean .
