AMD's current price-performance breaker can still hold its own at the top. In a direct comparison with Intel's i5-10600K, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 keep up well in games – especially straight out of the box. Since Intel's CPU offers a little more leeway for overclocking, the Ryzen 5 3600 has to admit defeat to its competitor in this discipline.
Since the last time the price of the processor has risen again. The CPU currently costs 175 euros and is therefore more than 60 euros cheaper than the competition.
The chip comes with a CPU cooler, by the way. A luxury buyers of the Intel Core i5-10600K have to do without. The Ryzen 5 3600 cannot offer an integrated graphics unit for this. A graphics card is a must here.
