AMD Ryzen 7 5700X & Ryzen 5 5600 ReviewPosted on 2022-05-23 20:31:44 by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X have been the company’s go-to six-core and eight-core models since their introduction in late 2020. Healthy performance offerings coupled with numerous price drops made them firm fan favourites for a long period of time. But in late 2021, Intel struck back with formidable competitors in the 12th Gen Alder Lake line-up – most notably the sub-£300 Core i5-12600K. AMD knew that a retaliation blow was a necessity, particularly given the hefty price drops already applied to Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X SKUs. And this is where the new, lower-cost Ryzen 7 5700X and Ryzen 5 5600 come into the picture.
