AMD Ryzen 5 3600: Who is it worth buying?
Thanks to the strong improvement in IPC performance compared to its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 3600 is a real jack of all trades. While the second-generation Ryzen processors were rarely able to offer serious parole to Intel in the gaming segment, the third-generation chips are now almost on par with the industry leader. There are rarely any big differences in the achieved frame rates with Full HD resolution, but the Ryzen 5 3600 offers twice as many threads compared to the Intel Core i5-9600K. These ensure an increase in performance, especially in applications such as Adobe Premiere and Blender.
The release of the new Ryzen processors has shaken up the current top 10 most popular processors:
Furthermore, there is a cooler with the purchase of the AMD processor, Intel does not use this luxury in the i5-9600K. Both processors can be overclocked, but more power can be squeezed out of the Intel processor. In my opinion, the Ryzen 5 3600 still offers the better price-performance ratio – especially at a price of less than 170 euros.
So if you are looking for an all-round processor with which you can also play without any problems, you are really well advised with the current range at Notebooksbilliger.
