The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz Six-Core AM4 Processor is a powerful six-core processor with 12 threads, designed for socket AM4 motherboards. Built with Zen 2 architecture, the third-generation 7nm Ryzen processor offers increased performance compared to its predecessor. It has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and can reach a max boost clock speed of 4.2 GHz. Moreover, it features 32MB of L3 cache, 24 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, and support for dual-channel 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM. Users should pair it with an AMD X500-series motherboard to fully take advantage of PCIe 4.0. This processor has a 65W TDP (Thermal Design Power) and includes a Wraith Stealth cooler. Please note that it does not have an integrated GPU, so a dedicated graphics card is required.
AMD GameCache is designed to reduce memory latency for higher frame rates in top titles.
Precision Boost 2
AMD Ryzen processors monitor energy consumption and temperature. When the processor knows it’s running cool and quiet, it can raise clock speeds in precise 25 MHz steps for any application without pausing work.
One Click Overclocking
Precision Boost Overdrive works with your motherboard to boost clock speeds and lets you overclock with a single click.
AMD StoreMI Technology
AMD StoreMI technology can combine SSD and HDD storage into a single hybrid drive, which stores frequently used files and programs on the SSD and other data on the larger HDD.
AMD SenseMI Technology
AMD’s SenseMI technology is a set of learning and adapting features that help the AMD Ryzen processor customize its performance to you and your applications, thanks to machine intelligence (MI).
AMD Ryzen Master Utility
AMD Ryzen Master provides you with up to four custom, user-defined profiles to store CPU, GPU, and DDR4 memory configurations. You can adjust the number of active cores and memory timings as well as optimize general performance or fine tune for your favorite applications.
AMD Ryzen Master offers you real-time monitoring and a histogram of per-core clock rates and temperatures, including average and peak readings.
