When you have the world’s most advanced processor architecture for gamers and content creators, the possibilities are endless. Whether you are playing the latest games, designing the next skyscraper, or crunching data, you need a powerful processor that can handle it all—and more. Hands down, the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processors set the bar for gamers and artists alike.

AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processors power the next generation of demanding games, providing one of a kind immersive experiences and dominate any multithreaded task like 3D and video rendering2, and software compiling.

With great processing power comes the bleeding-edge technologies to support. All AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processors come with a full suite of technologies designed to elevate your PC’s processing power including Precision Boost 2, Precision Boost Overdrive3 and PCIe® 4.0.

Not only are these processors drop-in ready on 500 series motherboards with a simple BIOS update, you can easily tweak and tune your processor with Ryzen™ Master and AMD StoreMI.

BIOS updates supporting the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processors on AMD 400 Series chipsets are expected to be available starting January 2021; exact availability will vary by manufacturer and motherboard model.

Great value CPU!

What a great little cpu. Bought this as a replacement to my 3600X and what a difference. Highly recommend!

5600x + motherboard + 16gb ram bundle

Upgraded from ivybridge 3770 (non "K" edition) in Feb 2022 to this. The CPU is good, but does not provide the massive step up in performance you would expect from other reviews. Graphics is a 1070. If you have an older CPU, but it still does "ok". I'd recommend holding on to your money and upgrading only if you have to (current Windows 11 compliance, application productivity) or go to a 5700/5800X or non-X. Its not worth paying for this chip unless you are dependant on your hardware for income (which I was as I WFH). If you do get this chip, get a good 550 chipset motherboard with gen4 nvme. Am4 wont last forever, but it won't go in the next year, so its future proofed for a couple more zen gens.

Awesome CPU

For me this is a great upgrade from a system I built 13 years ago (Intel i5 750) and I'm able to play games, edit video's and photo's without any stress and much reduced waiting times on rendering. At it's current price (£209.99) it's the best bang for bucks out there.
