"When AMD launched the Ryzen 3000 series we were able to get our hands on both the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 7 3700X. Both of these are very impressive processors, but they have price-tags that could break the bank for many people. So today we are checking out the $199 Ryzen 5 3600X. This by no means is a low-end processor, some might actually consider the 3600X a value at its price-tag. It is a 6-core, 12-thread part with a base clock of 3.8 GHz, max boost clock of 4.4 GHz and 35 MB of AMD GameCache. At $199 it is right in the wheel-house of many people looking to upgrade or build a new system. And with 6-cores and 12-threads it should be able to handle pretty much anything you throw at it. Is this the real star of the Ryzen 3000 series? Read on as we find out!"
