AMD 5600 Benchmarks:


Cinebench tests processors for responsiveness and power in both intensive tasks (multi-core) and general daily usage tasks (single-core). The higher the points the better, and these scores put it squarely in the upper end of budget-friendly chips.

AIDA64 Multi-Thread Real World Sims:

AIDA64 similarly tracks the raw power of CPUs in a variety of real-world sims, offering a deeper understanding of what the processor is capable of. We ran it through several tests, including AES, PhotoWorxx, Queen, SHA3, and ZLib, as well as several FPU tests (a far more intensive test, such as Julia, Mandel, and SinJulia. We've compiled all our results below, and they reinforce the power of this fantastic new CPU.

All three of these brand-new CPUs are available now at your local Micro Center! And if you're looking for suggestions, check out our Ryzen 5 5600 Build Guide!
