Average Bench: 83.7% (107th of 1316)

Based on 34,716 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00870F10 Model: AMD Ryzen 5 3500X 6-Core Processor

The upcoming hex-core, third generation Ryzen 5 3500X, shares the same Zen 2 7nm microarchitecture as the incumbent 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 3600. The 3500X has a base clock of 3.6 GHz and a boost clock just short of the 3600’s 4.2 GHz, at 4.1 GHz. It also has 35 MB of cache and a TDP of 65W. Given the architecture and clock speeds, the 3500X will offer very similar gaming performance to the SMT enabled 12-thread 3600, but at a significant discount in price. Early UserBenchmarks show that there is just a 1% gap in effective speed between the 3500X and 3600. Also anticipated for release is the non-X, Ryzen 5 3500, which will have slightly less L3 cache. [Oct '19 CPUPro]

Recently released to compete with Intel Core i5-9400F, this CPU, unlike the more powerful Ryzen 5 3600, doesn't come with multithreaded support but retained large amount of L3 cache and the PCIe 4.0 support that the new Zen 2 CPUs had. Judging from the recent benchmarks which suggested Ryzen 5 3500X being very competitive against the Intel counterpart at both of the performance and value which many users would look for.

Managed to pick one up for $100. Great all-around CPU for gaming and light workstation. Unfortunately, I did not win the silicon lottery and got a chip that can only overclock to 4.025GHz at 1.275V. Still managed to bench a decent single and quad core score on UBM.

On 16th of Feb 2021 paid only 136 euro (620PLN) for this brand new chip but with no cooling. Amazing value! Performance basically the same as of Ryzen 5 3600 but at a much lower price. Super happy with it! Coupled with Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo so it runs really cool - idles around 45 Celsius but stressed does not exceed 70.
