AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Review and Benchmarks
Today’s release of the new AMD 5000 Series has us excited for the future of PC gaming.
It’s a fantastic time to be building a new PC, and we’re excited to be part of that with you! The new 5000 series CPUs offer an impressive performance increase over previous generations that make it quite enticing to upgrade your CPU. If you’ve upgraded within the past couple of years, this is easier than ever to do. The 5000 series still uses the AM4 socket, meaning that with a BIOS update, you might be able to use your current AM4 motherboard. Check with your motherboard manufacturer to be 100% certain that the new chip is compatible with your current motherboard.
