Great value as good or better then the ryzen 5 3600 and even sometimes the ryzen 5 5600xt at a much lower price. Dont buy the more expensive i7s or i9s this has about the same performance.

This processor is a value winner for mid- and high-range gaming/borwsing/multitasking, etc. Game Over for AMD in this range, until Zen4.

Fantastic value in my opinion. Also with the insane GPU shortages it's nice to see a decent integrated GPU.
