Not much comp against the 12400F—Apr '22


Excellent

1 month ago.

Cheaper than the 5600x and at similar speeds, the Ryzen 5 5600 is AMD's attempt at lashing back against Intel's new 12th generation processors. I would rate this at the same level as the amazing value-for-money I5-12400f by Intel, and this CPU can be found at similar prices depending on your region. With the higher price of LGA 1700 motherboards compared to AM4, and with the scarcity of DDR5 RAM, the 5600 seems like a better deal when priced similarly or even slightly higher than the 12400/12400f.
