AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D Allegedly Coming Soon: Fastest Budget Gaming CPU Under $300?

AMD might be working on a budget 3D V-Cache CPU based on the hex-core Ryzen 5 5600X3D for the seemingly neverending mass of AM4 users. Seeing how the 5800X3D has dominated sales charts across most markets, I’m surprised we had to wait this long. A leaked manifest from @g01d3nm4ng0 shows the OPN of the supposed chip alongside the specs in tandem with the 5800X3D:

The Ryzen 5 5600X3D will feature six cores and twelve threads, each packing 512KB of L2 cache for a total of 3MB. The L3 cache will be the same as the 5800X3D, with 32MB of planar and 64MB of stacked 3D cache. The CPU will have a base clock of 3.3GHz and a boost of 4.4GHz. In comparison, the 5800X3D packs eight cores, sixteen threads, and 4MB of L2 cache. It runs at a base and boost clocks of 3.4GHz and 3.5GHz, respectively. Both chips will have a TDP of 65W.

The Ryzen 5 5600X3D will be an absolute kicker. It should be 85% as fast as the 5800X3D in gaming workloads while sipping just around 50W of power. Unlike its other Ryzen brethren, you don’t need particularly expensive memory, and a $100 A320 motherboard will be sufficient. Ergo, for less than $500, you’ve got a speedy gaming PC minus the graphics card.
