This is a Binning reject of the 5600G. Same amount of cache, no IGPU and much worse gaming performance than the 5600. Do not buy unless it's much cheaper than the 5600 where you live.—Apr '22

Probably the best performance price ratio ever

Strong multithreaded budget contender. A slightly lower binned 5600G with disabled igpu. Sadly a bit lacking in L3 cache, but the price makes up for that.
