AMD Ryzen 5 3600xt processors from AMD are built on the already excellent Zen-based family of CPUs. The newer Zen 2 architecture rolled out in 2019 was an essential next step for AMD, improving single and multi-core processing performance, as well as reducing overall power draw. Comparing the performance numbers of the new Ryzen 3000 series against the previous generation Ryzen CPUs shows gains in gaming and general computing.
Uncompromising features and smooth performance are finally the standard for every gamer and artist. First processors with PCIe® 4.0, delivering double the graphics bandwidth. Massive 35MB GameCache memory onboard for higher game performance. Like the other Ryzen 3000 chips, the six-core 12-thread. AMD Ryzen 5 3600xt comes with a 7nm compute die (with two disabled physical cores) paired with a 12nm I/O die.
Ryzen 3000 chips officially support dual-channel DDR4-3200, a step up from the previous-gen’s support for DDR4-2966. AMD has greatly improved its memory compatibility and overclocking capabilities, but you still have to abide by rules that dictate the maximum supported frequency based on DIMM type and slot population. Ryzen 3000 also supports memory overclocking, either by hand-tuning or one-click A-XMP profiles with pricier kits, to skirt those rules.
AMD also has its Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) feature on offer, which is an automated overclocking tool that will tune your processor to its maximum achievable performance based on its cooling, motherboard, and power delivery accommodations. The quality of your cooling solution, and the vagaries of the silicon lottery, have a big impact on how well PBO can auto-tune your processor.
3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors are built using the world’s most advanced 7nm manufacturing technology. They deliver game-winning performance while keeping your system astonishingly cool and quiet. Ryzen processors neural-net intelligence can adapt to your workload. That’s the advantage you gain when you own the world’s most advanced processor for gaming.
