An AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor has made an appearance on UserBenchmark and the results it achieved seem to point in the direction of the 3rd Gen Ryzen series achieving what was expected from it. High hopes had been pinned on the Zen 2 Matisse CPUs, and early benchmarks are demonstrating that AMD has delivered the goods.

The Ryzen 5 3600 is currently the entry-level chip in AMD’s new Ryzen 3000 lineup. It’s a 6-core processor that can utilize 12 threads, and it has a base frequency of 3.6 GHz with a boost up to 4.2 GHz. The expected price for the Ryzen 5 3600 desktop processor is US$199, so this is an affordable product that apparently can deliver performance that seems way beyond its price point.

The average benchmark score for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 that was spotted on UserBenchmark by Tum Apisak was a credible 103%, which puts the chip in 28th position (out of 1,159) in the database’s charts. The multi-core speed test was particularly outstanding, with the Matisse CPU amassing 1,074 points or 161%. A much more expensive Intel Core i7-9700K scored 1,072 points in the multi-core speed test, which demonstrates the rapid pace the Ryzen 5 3600 can operate at.

The Ryzen 3000-series processor’s average score of 103% places it ahead of other more-expensive chips, such as the Ryzen 7 2700X and the i7-8700. So far, the tests are only based on a couple of samples, so there is headroom for errors. However, the current user value rating of 147% for the Ryzen 5 3600 is incredibly high, and it is only beaten by the Ryzen 5 2600 and the i7-8700K.
