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

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.


Good

This was the CPU that I chose for my first gaming PC build. I coupled it with a RTX 2060 and it was fantastic. The L3 cache really does not matter. Its a great option for a budget gaming build.


Excellent

Great budget CPU for gaming and productivity. Only drawback is lack of PCIE 4.0 which in my opinion is not forgivable considering that R5 3500 had it.
