AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 3000 series processors are the first consumer level 7mm desktop CPUs. Months of wait is finally ending on 7th July, when they will finally land on shelves.

To make the wait much sweeter the continuous benchmarks of these potential CPUs are being surfaced online. And now we’ve got the benchmarks for the upcoming Ryzen 5 3600.

The Ryzen 5 series is the most popular processor series among consumers for their sweet pricing and heavy performance. Ryzen 5 series is both for gaming as well as productivity.

So the successor of last year’s best selling CPU (Ryzen 5 2600), is again proving its worth by beating the blue team’s top of the line processor like the i7-9700K.

From its advent, the Ryzen series has been giving stiff competition to Intel and beating the highly priced Intel processors. But AMD lacked in single core performance that affected gaming.

Now the time has changed, the improved TSMC’s 7nm fabrication has helped these CPUs to gain immense IPC performance. So not only these processors outthrow their nearest Intel processors but also challenge the top end ones both for single as well multi-core performance.

If you do not believe in words, then we have benchmarks for you. Videocardz has got the Cinebench scores for Ryzen 5 3600:

Single Core performance

The Intel Core i7-9700K scores a modest 1451 points being a $374 processor. On the other hand, the Zen 2 based Ryzen 5 3600 is a bit faster with 1561 points.

The Ryzen 5 3600 is even inches away from the higher end i7-8700K which yields 1578 points in the single core performance test. So we now get a huge single core performance on a budget CPU even comparable to the higher end Intel processors.

Multi-Core performance

The Ryzen 5 3600 manages to get the fifth rank in the top 10 CPU chart. It only trails behind the likes of the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Threadripper 1950X.

This is just amazing considering the price point and the fact that this is a budget processor.


So from the benchmarks, we see why AMD is constantly taking the market away from Intel. Now the Red team has even taken the gaming crown away from Intel which they constantly boasted with.

Considering the price difference and the performance being offered, AMD will easily attract enthusiasts and gamers. The Ryzen 5 3600 is truly amazing considering the fact it will be a mid-range CPU offering high-end performance.
