AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU benchmarks Leak

Benchmarking data for AMD's Ryzen 5 3600 has leaked onto the web, revealing the CPU's performance in Cinebench R15/R20 and some crisp CPU-Z screenshots of the processor. 

AMD's Ryzen 5 3600 is the company's cheapest Zen 2 processor, at least at the company's July 7th Launch, offering users six cores, twelve threads and base/boost clock speeds of 3.6/4.2GHz for $199 while delivering more single-threaded CPU performance than a Ryzen 7 2700X. 

In the images below, which come via Videocardz, the Ryzen 5 3600 operates using 3200MHz DDR4 memory at CS 14 timings and offers 502.2 points in CPU-Z's single-threaded benchmark and 3989.4 points in CPU-Z's multi-threaded benchmark.

In Cinebench R15, AMD's Ryzen 5 3600 achieved a benchmark score of 1443 points, which is enough to surpass our Intel i7 8700K's benchmark score of 1429 (link for benchmarking data).  Not bad for a $199 processor. 

Sadly, CInebench's single-threaded benchmark was not run using this hardware configuration, leaving us with only the application's multi-threaded performance results.

In Cinebench R20, we can see that the Ryzen 5 3600 offers a multi-threaded score of 3229, which gives this 6-core processor similar performance levels to AMD's 8-core Ryzen 7 1700X. In effect, AMD has packed two cores of extra performance into their 6-core Ryzen 5 3600. Not bad given the fact that this is AMD's lowest-end Zen 2 offering.

So far, these are impressive results for AMD's Ryzen 5 3600, but it only paints part of the picture. Yes, heavily multi-threaded benchmarks are good, but what about scenarios that are more single-thread limited, such as gaming workloads or more mainstream computing applications. We will cover this and more during our full Ryzen 3rd Generation reviews.
