A few days ago, I finally got my Ryzen 5600x, I'm using a Gigabyte Aorus Ultra gaming V1.0. This is a x470 board, I had already installed the beta bios (F60c) that supports the new 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs. I replaced a 2700x with this 5600x. Holy cow, what a difference a CPU makes, I'm running a 1080ti and this CPU really helped my 1080ti have new life. VR is very demanding on both the CPU and GPU but I didn't realize how much so on the CPU alone, nothing else in my system has changed but the 5600x. I get much better VR performance with both my Valve Index and Oculus Quest-2 over Link cable. Here are a few examples using the 3 versions of VRMark. Orange Room ..... 2700x = 8565 ....... 5600x = 14116 Cyan Room ........ 2700x = 4020 ........ 5600x = 8001 Blue Room ......... 2700x = 2588 ........ 5600x = 2924
None I can see, I used the Wraith Prism cooler from my 2700x instead of the pathetic Wraith Stealth included with the 5600x (C'mon AMD, why such a crappy cooler with such a wonderful CPU?) The temps stay low, I've seen mine boost and stay at 4649mhz under load and if I remember, the temps stay in the 60s.
Continued from Strengths: These are impressive gains for just a CPU swap using the same EVGA 1080ti. So far, the Gigabyte beta bios has been rock solid, only thing it doesn't want to run is AMD Ryzen Master software due to having a 3rd gen Ryzen on a x470 board (Originally Ryzen 5000 series wasn't supposed to be able to run on a 400 series motherboard), so it's a matter of time before AMD fix this issue with Ryzen Master. Summary: If you are using a older Ryzen CPU, this is a amazing upgrade, I am blown away by this CPU. I am seriously blown away as to how much this CPU has increased my performance in VR while the rest of the system remained the same including my 1080ti. For anyone on a previous Ryzen gen, this is a great upgrade, if you are using a 400 series board, make sure your board manufacturer has a new bios that will support the 5000 series cpu and flash your bios before doing the cpu swap. :)

Faster than the i5-10600K running at 5.1GHz Comes with a cooler 100% stable so far Under gaming loads seems to hold 4.6 GHz most cores
Will be overshadowed by the non-X version at some point that will be close to the same performance for perhaps $100 less.
A chip to get you through the next 3 years no issues whatsoever with class leading performance. Could be $50 cheaper to be perfect but is that fair for the fastest 6 core processor in the world?
