Exceeded my expectations.

Strengths:

300-400 fps in Overwatch at 1440p. Half the heat & power of an equivalent Intel cpu. soldered integrated heat spreader. Includes CPU fan.

Weaknesses:

Had to wait a long while for it to come in stock. Included CPU fan isn't quiet at full load. Included fan maintains high temp at full load.

Additional Comments:

Due to the chip shortage I thought this was going to be a compromise until the 12 core chips come down in price but this has been so impressive that I'm not going to upgrade for a long time. Equivalent 8 thread performance to a 2700X, but 50% more frames in games. I get 400fps in overwatch during free-for-all and 300+ during team fights! Now I get to cry because my poor gameplay is all my fault but at least it pairs perfectly with my Geforce RTX 3080. Bolted my custom loop water cooler to it with a 480x60mm radiator and corsair water block and the fans don't have to turn on under light load. While gaming the radiator fans run at about 30% to maintain 40 celcius. When running pi 95 it takes an hour for the heat to build up enough to run the fans at 80% but it never gets hotter than that. Downgraded from a Threadripper 2950X and honestly, 8+ cores for this new generation is overkill in most situations. I can still run VMs, run containers in linux, etc, and it's only 6 cores because the per-core performance is insane in this thing.

Good CPU

Strengths:

Noticeably faster than a 3600x: about 20% faster running batch image processing jobs. RAM at 3866 stable through several runs of Memtest86.

Weaknesses:

Well, you know, the price.

Additional Comments:

This is a good upgrade from a 1600x or 2600x. As an upgrade from a 3600x, IDK, maybe ego is involved.

Best 6 Core CPU, and out perform Intel counter parts

Strengths:

FAST for gamers! Easy Overclock to 4.85 with PBO overcocking Max 65C temperature underload with Prime95 @ 4.85Ghz with Corsair H100i AIO. with vSoc @ 1.125v and 1.4vDimm I can get 1:! Fclk @ 1900mhz with 3800mhz ram on a 3600 G.skill Trident Z Neo (2x8gb).

Weaknesses:

None

Additional Comments:

This is the 2 gaming PC I build for myself after about 8 to 9 years use of the Intel core i7 2600K @ 5.2Ghz Love this CPU. Best Value/performance!!!

VR Enthusiast

Strengths:

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

Weaknesses:

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.

Additional Comments:

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. :)

Best 6 core gaming processor

Strengths:

Outperforms or close to intel, 65w Tdp, best 6 core processor you can get.

Weaknesses:

Low quantity

Additional Comments:

Worth the backorder

Fastest 6 core processor on earth 2020

Strengths:

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

Weaknesses:

Will be overshadowed by the non-X version at some point that will be close to the same performance for perhaps $100 less.

Additional Comments:

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?
