Product Overview

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is the mid-level choice in AMD's Zen 3 APU lineup. It is also available as a low-power variant in the form of 5600GE. Both are primarily marketed for OEM use.
Retaining the 7nm process of Zen 3 CPUs, the 5600G adds integrated Radeon graphics. Unlike Intel's approach, however, each AMD APU has a different iGPU: Compared to the Ryzen 3 5300G, however, the integrated Radeon graphics in this Ryzen 5 APU comes with 7 cores and runs at a higher 1900MHz frequency. The number of unified shaders and texture mapping units are boosted to 448 and 28 respectively, too.
On the processor side, the 5600G comes with 6 cores and 12 threads, and its maximum boost clock is 4.4GHz. Unlike Zen 3 CPUs, however, AMD does not uses multiple core complexes in its APUs. Therefore, the Ryzen 5 5600G's 6 cores all reside on a single die.
Per usual, the 5600G supports 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes, higher than its Intel competition.
Alongside the 5600G / 5600GE, AMD also unveiled the Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 7 models of this series.

, small form factor, and HTPC rigs. The $259 six-core Ryzen 5 5600G reduces that steep price of entry and also comes with a bundled Wraith Stealth cooler. AMD is still holding back some of its lower-priced 5000G models, though, so our list of the best cheap CPUs probably won't change for some time.

Pros
  • Competitive price for the Ryzen 5000G family
