Deal | AMD Ryzen 5 5600 price drops 41% on Amazon
The AMD Ryzen 5 5600 arrived as a cheaper and less potent alternative to the Ryzen 5 5600X more than a year after its introduction. Released alongside the Ryzen 5 5500, the Ryzen 5 5600 has 6 cores, 12 threads, and a base clock speed of 3.5 GHz that goes up to a 4.4 GHz boost speed. Like its siblings, this processor is unlocked and ships with a Wraith Stealth air cooler.
The Amazon global rating of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600 looks great, with a 4.8/5 score which is the result of 1,233 ratings. Of these, no less than 89% are perfect scores, followed by 8% 4/5 ratings. The breakdown by feature consists of four highlights. The "value for money" attribute gets a 4.7/5, and three 4.8/5 scores go to gaming performance, stability, and ease of unlocking.
In addition to the 41% discount that brings the processor down to US$118 (Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection also comes with this purchase for a limited time), two processor & motherboard deals are also available. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600 can be acquired alongside the GIGABYTE B550I AORUS PRO AX for US$314.36 (23% discount) or the ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) for US$320.00 (21% off). The buyers should keep in mind that this processor does not come with integrated graphics, so a discrete graphics solution must be taken into account as well for any build that uses it.
