Average Bench: 92.2% (18th of 1186)

Based on 16 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.
