AMD Ryzen 5 5600G now on sale with a massive 51 percent discount on Amazon
Sporting an integrated Radeon Vega 7 graphics adapter and shipping with the AMD Wraith cooler, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G processor arrived on the market more than a year ago with a launch price of US$259. Now, Amazon is slashing that price in half so those interested can grab this part for just US$128.
Those looking for an affordable yet decent processor with integrated graphics have just received a new possible choice to think about thanks to Amazon’s 51 percent discount for the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G. Unveiled in the first half of 2021 and released for the general market in early August of the same year, this 6-core processor has a base frequency of 3.9 GHz, a maximum boost speed of 4.4 GHz, and features Radeon Vega 7 graphics.
To deliver a complete solution for system builders looking for parts to assemble affordable desktop PCs, but also for home users, AMD has bundled the Ryzen 5 5600G with the Wraith Stealth cooling solution. This air cooler should be more than enough to keep temperatures in check for this 65 W TDP processor, whose frequencies (alongside its performance) can be reduced to achieve a 45 W TDP, thus obtaining a more efficient, silent, and cool system overall.
With 8,067 ratings and 351 answered questions, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is a very popular processor on Amazon. Its general rating is 4.8 out of 5, with 88 percent maximum scores and 7 percent 4/5 ratings. The breakdown by feature starts with a 4.4 gaming score, followed by 4.5/5 for ease of unlocking, 4.6 value for money, 4.7 ease of installation, 4.8/5 “for beginners” rating, as well as a 4.8 for video quality. Although it is no longer a “fresh” processor, it is definitely a good deal for US$128.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
