Specification of AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D

  • CPU Socket: AM4
  • Number of CPU Cores: 6
  • Number of Threads: 12
  • Max. Boost Clock: Up to 4.4GHz
  • Base Clock: 3.3GHz
  • L1 Cache: 384KB
  • L2 Cache: 3MB
  • L3 Cache: 96MB
  • System Memory Type: DDR4
  • Memory Channels: 2

  • Processor Technology for CPU Cores: TSMC 7nm FinFET

The short take on Ryzen 5 5600X3D is that it is a six-core version of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D we reviewed HERE. This means it has six cores, rather than eight, and has the enormous 96MB slab of L3 cache that gives a huge boost to gaming performance.

The twin curiosities with the Ryzen 5 5600X3D are the timing of the launch of this Zen 3 part, almost a year after the arrival of Zen 4 Ryzen 7000, and also the fact that you can only buy this CPU in-store at Micro Center in the USA.
