Best Overall Gaming CPU of 2020
We are currently in a time where budget and performance are at the likes never witnessed before. Competition and the Esports/Gaming craze has created immense competition between team red and team blue. We are going to breakdown why we think that the Ryzen 5 3600 is the best OVERALL CPU of 2020.
The Ryzen 5 3600 features Zen 2 architecture which enables the highest single and multi-thread performance for team red.
A respectable 6 core 12 thread combination makes gaming and multitasking a breeze.
The Base clock of 3600 MHz allows for optimal gaming and work performance and can be turbo clocked to 4200 MHz.
The Ryzen 5 3600 only takes up 65W of PSU usage.
The Ryzen 5 3600 can be found anywhere from $160-$190 on mainstream retailer sites. This is one of the biggest values in the PC DIY industry.
Combining cost value and performance value the Ryzen 5 3600 is a clear homerun for AMD. Intel's closest comparison (I5-9600KF) has a slightly (100 MHz) faster base clock but lacks the thread count of the Ryzen 5 3600 and averages about $60 higher in selling price. We love the Ryzen 5 3600 here at CEN and in our humble opinion, we believe it is the best overall CPU for 2020.
