AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 is one of five new processors based on the latest Zen 2 7nm microarchitecture. This 6-core, 12-threaded processor is expected to be priced at 199 USD and succeeds the Zen+ Ryzen 5 2600 improving upon it by 20% in terms of effective speed. In fact the 3600 base and boost clocks of 3.6 Ghz / 4.2 GHz, match the previous gen hex-core Ryzen 5 2600X and therefore indicate an 11% clock for clock (IPC) improvement over the previous generation for 30% more money at current prices. At this price point, the Ryzen 5 3600 has to compete with Intel’s 6-core i5-9600KF. AMD continues to excel at multi-core performance, with benchmarks showing a 27% overclocked multi core advantage over the 9600KF but the i5-9600KF leads by 14% on single and quad core workloads which translates to around 10% higher fps for gamers. The Ryzen 3000 processors all include coolers and although they will be launched alongside the new mainstream X570 chipset (which is PCIe 4.0 enabled), they are backwards compatible with 400 and even the 300 series motherboards. At current prices, the 3600 offers good value for workstation users. [Jun '19 CPUPro]
