AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 is a 6-core, 12-threaded processor which succeeds the Ryzen 5 2600 improving upon it by 13% in terms of overclocked performance. The 3600 is in competition with Intel’s 6-core i5-9600K. AMD continues to push the multi-core performance envelope: benchmarks show that the 3600 has a 27% overclocked 64-core lead over the 9600K but that the i5-9600K leads by 14% on single to hex core workloads which translates to 10% higher EFps in most of the today’s top games (e.g. PUBG, GTAV and CSGO). Additionally, the 3600's memory controller, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency which adversely impacts gaming. Weaknesses in memory architecture are not readily picked up by CPU benchmarks but they are apparent whilst gaming. Cheaper CPUs such as the 9400F deliver better gaming performance in nearly all of today’s popular games. At $190 USD, the 3600 offers good value for purely workstation tasks such as film production but streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. The masterfully hyped Ryzen 3600 may well be the best CPU for multimedia producers on a tight budget but in today's market there are faster and less expensive alternatives for gamers, streamers and general desktop users. [Jun '19 CPUPro]

The AMD Phenom II X6 1100T was the last, in a long line of Phenom II X6's. The series went 1045T, 1055T, 1065T, 1075T, 1090T and finally 1100T. Each successive release was clocked slightly higher ending with the 1100T which had a base/turbo clock speed of 3.3/3.7 GHz. The X6 has six processing cores and demonstrates very good multi-core performance but it is less able to handle single and dual core workloads, which is what the majority of consumer desktop computing requires. The X6 series were good overclockers with the ability to boost stock clocks by around 20%. Comparing the 1100T to the similarly priced i5-2400 shows that Intel's mid-range Sandy Bridge processor, which was released just a month after the 1100T, was around 8% faster for single and dual core workloads but slower by a staggering 30% for multi-core workloads. [Mar '14 CPUPro]
