AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Central Processor Review

 More than a year ago, during my review of the best-selling 3600X processor, I couldn't believe the fact that AMD was finally able to reduce the gap between it and Intel in the performance of games for central processors with the launch of Zen 2 architecture processors at the time, although excellence remained intel's ally both in single-core performance and in-game performance, but overall the 3600X processor remained the king of the middle class and not too short.

But there seems to be a new magician in the city as i used to say, as we saw in the leading processors reviews 5900X and 5800X last week on our site that AMD has also managed to excel in single-core performance and in-game performance besides widening the gap in its favor in application performance and performance software to put the blue camp in trouble and confusion before the launch of the 11th generation processors next year.

Of course, since these pioneering processors may be a little expensive for the middle class, they will actually not differentiate in gaming performance as we'll see on the performance tests page later in this lengthy review.

 Zen 3 Architecture

AMD's new Zen 3 architecture is trying hard to follow in the footsteps of Zen and Zen 2 architects in terms of delivering better performance standards. AMD's ambition with Zen 3 is to offer a better processing power that you can think of even if you have a last-generation processor and even if it's a replica of the announced XT just a few months ago.

The changes these processors have experienced can be boring for you, but we'll address them and summarize them for you so you can see how much development AMD is always looking for with their processors.

Zen 3 architecture comes with new designs for the processor itself. As you know, Zen 2 processors came with two CCX units in a single CCD chip that hosts the cells and so on. Each CCX in the ancient architecture came up to four cells and eight strands with 16 MB of hidden memory in the third stage or known as the L3 Cache.

The double is done, baby. Each structured segment will bring a single CCX unit with up to eight nanocells and 16 processing threads with 32MB hidden memory. Tell me about innovation, ha!

This new step allowed Zen 3 to put everything together instead of unnecessarily separating it. Now it is possible to better access hidden memory through all the intentions and access to commands and data is much easier than having a quadrant in the same area only, the computer base is fixed, the sooner the faster!

You wonder, of course, what difference you will find this time from this architecture because of the rearrangement of the anaesthetist. AMD claims that performance is better with games and programs that need to reduce the time of delay. The gaming difference, according to the company before our tests, was 26% on full HD resolution.


The memory of the second stage, known as L2, has not changed. 512 KB per kernel is the same number we'll see with the new Zen 3 architecture. The 12 nm inlet and exit slot also did not change from the last generation and comes with the same specifications and known connections and we find no reason to develop them.

We also don't need to mention that these processors can host two nuclei since the highest processor comes with sixteen nuclei inside it, so the nuclei and their threads will be divided into two slices.

Precision Boost 2

Precision Boost 2 is back with the new RYZen 5000 processors from AMD. We can say that they exploit the surrounding conditions to reach high frequencies to serve you with heavy loads. This technology relies on an AMD-specific algorithm to push the device at the temperature and energy consumption of the processor.

When the processor reaches the highest temperature levels that will require reducing frequency, the processor will return to normal frequencies so that it can reach higher frequencies afterwards through this technology, which will update the heat data and consume electricity every millisecond due to the processor's Infinity Fabric capacity.

This is the third time we've seen this technology from AMD. We've seen it in 2G, 3G processors and we're now seeing it in 4G or Ryzen 5000, depending on your name for this generation.
X570 chip and AM4 socket again and probably the last time

These processors basically support the B550 and X570 segments. Support is also available for the B450 and X470 segments, but we will not review any processor on these segments due to their vulnerability compared to new generations. We're not going to use the B550 either because we want the whole experience. Yes, the B550 does a great job with new and past generation treatments, but we want the whole experience even if the difference is small.

The X570 chip will be the primary driver of new-generation AMD processors in our reviews so that we can come up with every drop of sweat that this processor, or volt in its case, will make, so that we can judge it in the best possible way. Forgetting the x570 chip specifications won't be a problem, we're always here to remind you, right?

The X570 chip is fully designed through amd's development and research module and manufactured by Global Foundaries with a 14 nm resolution. This chip provides you with the ports:

  • Eight USB 3.2 ports from the second generation.
  • Four USB2.0 ports.
  • Four SATA 6 Gbps ports
  • Eight PCIe 4.0 delivery channels plus another selection available for motherboard manufacturers to place two more ports.

In addition to these ports and connections, the processor itself can provide the following:

  • Four USB 3.2 ports from the second generation.
  • 24 4G PCIe connectivity channels divided between nvme graphics and disc communication channels as well as channels of communication with the chip.

For the 128GB, the maximum capacity of these memories will be on two channels. The virtually supported frequency of the frequency is 3200 MHz and we also don't forget that breaking the frequency of the frequency is available and can reach higher frequencies, but here we are talking about the factory's virtual support.

The AM4 socket hosts the processor for the fourth time in a row. I promised AMD I'm dead, my friend. I promised constant support for their segments and here they keep the promise with four generations behind each other and here we see sixteen-core processors on this socket and we don't see the same processor on different sockets, somewhat strange?

Mostly and yes I regret to say that, this will be the last time we see the AM4 socket from AMD, after a four-year journey which I have always been most prominent in processor reviews in general, the continuous support of the socket is great because every time you want to upgrade to change the platform completely, will that be the farewell that i really deserve with the new generation? Let's get to the point and talk about the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor further during the next page.
