The Ryzen 5 5600X is both the entry-level and best value for money 5000 series CPU. The 5600X is a hex-core 12 thread processor with a base clock speed of 3.7 GHz boosting to 4.6 GHz. It has 35 MB of cache and a TDP rating of 65W. A cooler is included in the MSRP of $300 USD, but cheap after-market coolers (such as the $20 GAMMAXX 400) are far more effective and therefore worth the upgrade. Notably, AMD’s new Zen 3 architecture has vastly improved single-core performance and lower memory latency, which leads to a significant effective speed advantage over its predecessor, the 3600X. Last year, AMD’s class-leading marketers secured significant sales of the 3000 series CPUs despite a 15% performance deficit against lower priced Intel parts. The games, specific scenes, software/hardware settings and choice of competing hardware were often cherry picked, undisclosed and inconsistent from one product to the next. Now that AMD have actually achieved both top tier performance and market share, their marketing machinery is focused on price hikes. Users that do not wish to pay a marketing premium should investigate Intel’s $175 USD 11400F, which, when paired with a 2060 Super, delivers higher EFps in four out of five of today’s most popular games. Allocating the savings to a higher tier GPU will result in a far superior gaming PC. [Nov '20 CPUPro]

The XT series of Ryzen CPUs barely outperform their cheaper X and non-X counterparts: 3600, 3600X, 3800X, 3900X. Outside of encoding workloads such as UserBenchmark 64-core, Cinebench, Blender-CPU and Handbrake-CPU the Ryzen architecture remains limited by relatively high latency and the associated gaming bottleneck (frame drops). Dedicated hardware such as NVENC or QuickSync remains far more efficient than CPU cores for encoding. CPU based encoding is akin to using hair clippers on a lawn. The best value CPU amongst the Ryzen range is the 3300X which is the first design to focus on delivering lower latency, and therefore better performance where users need it, rather than “Moar Coars”. Aside from the army of anonymous influencers on social media (reddit, forums, youtube etc.), users will be hard pressed to find rational arguments that favor the XT variants over their cheaper predecessors. [Jul '20 CPUPro]
