The Chinese media have released the first unboxing and benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 5 3500X processor. The processor, which is AMD's answer to the Core i5-9400F, is expected to be available in stores today and target a market segment of less than $ 150. Intel Core i5-9400F
AMD is preparing two variants for the US market under $ 150, the Ryzen 5 3500X and the Ryzen 5 3500. Both processors have 6 cores and 6 threads, so there is no multithreading. However, given the price and targeted market, a lower core configuration is expected. As such, these would be the first Ryzen 3000 parts without multithreading support.
Since the AMD Ryzen 5 3500X was the first to hit the market. It's an unboxing and a benchmark embargo that gets lifted earlier. The AMD Ryzen 5 3500X has a base clock of 3.6 GHz and a boost clock of 4.1 GHz. The processor has 32 MB of cache, a 65 W TDP and a price of almost $ 150. It is very popular that AMD would choose a US price of $ 149.99 for this particular chip.
The chip comes with 24 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, support for 3200 MHz memory and some performance benchmarks where the chip is very competitive compared to the Core i5-9400F. The 32MB game cache is also expected to provide significantly better latencies on a variety of Esport titles, which should be considered by price-conscious gamers when choosing between an AM4 and a LGA 1151 platform.

AMD Ryzen 5 3500X Performance Benchmarks  The processor was tested on a MSI B450M Mortar Max motherboard along with 16GB of DDR4 3000MHz memory and a GeForce GTX 1660 6GB graphics card. Comparing CPU-specific tests such as CPU-Z, the AMD Ryzen 5 3500X scored 476.3 points in the single-core test compared to 451.4 points on the Core i5-9400F. In the multithreaded test, AMD Ryzen 5 3500X scored 2774.9 points compared to 2568.2 points at Intel. The Ryzen 5 3500X has been validated here and here several times, along with the CPU z value.
The processor also scored higher in the productivity benchmarks than the Core i5 9400F, demonstrating that this chip is well-suited for PC makers.
In terms of gaming performance, several titles were tested at a resolution of 1080p. In PUBG the average of the chip was 80 FPS. In Assassin's Creed Odyssey, the chip achieved an average of 65 FPS with a minimum speed of 27 FPS and a maximum speed of 141 FPS. In Shadow of The Tomb Raider the chip averaged 77 FPS. During the Second World War, the chip scored an average of 126 FPS with 171 max and 109 min FPS. Finally, the LOL (Leauge of Legends) chip scored an average of 180 FPS and a maximum of 222 FPS.
In my opinion, this is a considerable achievement for a chip that should cost around $ 150. The chip also consumes 8.3 W at idle, but no consumption figures for the load and no temperatures were given.
As with the package, the Ryzen 5 3500X comes in a standard box containing the CPU in the plastic cover next to the battery. RYCEN & # 39; case badge. The box also includes the warranty and the Wraith Stealth Cooler. Overall, the processor and its cheaper sibling, the R5 3500, will arouse the interest of budget gamers, especially since AMD is hosting them on the Esports gaming market.
