Overall Review: It's a 4-core, 8-thread Zen 2 processor for a rock bottom price. I paired it with 16 GB of DDR4 3200, an ASUS Prime B550-PLUS, a GTX 1650 Super, and an Intel M.2 SSD. I ended up with a very capable PC for a very reasonable price.
Pros: -8 Threads
-Nice upgrade from a 7600
-Good introduction to the platform
Cons: -Not a whole lot of OC potential (4.2 @1.33v)
Overall Review: -If you can get the 3300x buy that instead, If not, this will do the job
Pros: Zen 2 Architecture
4 Core / 8 Thread, with a great clock speed and turbo.
Includes a really solid stock fan.
Cons: 3300x is a bit better, but never in stock. This isn't much of a trade off and worthwhile to get on the AM4 platform before AMD's next processor release wave for an upgrade.
Overall Review: Amazing processor for the price, and with the upgrade path with AM4 platform with B550 motherboards, I can have years of compatibility. The RAM with Zen 2 overclocks easily, and with XMP enabled I got the full 3200 my kit provided. No issues at all with the build and I am glad to be back with AMD.
Pros: Satisfied. 100%
Overall Review: Will do business with Newegg again.
Pros: Overclocking capabilities are extremely comprehensive. And, runs much cooler than anticipated with an air cooler. Drivers loaded flawlessly with no bugs whatsoever.
Overall Review: This CPU was a pleasant surprise. It was a get-me-by purchase until the 4000 series release (and the high-end 3000's come down in price). However, I am impressed, so far, by it's power and stability both with games and engineering graphics software loads. Not concerned with CCX layout for what I do. You can't go wrong at this price point....Highly recommended.
Pros: Affordable, Fast for the price, 8 threads
Overall Review: I’ve had this cpu for about a month it pairs well with my rx 570 I can play every game medium-high settings 60 FPS. 5 stars recommend if it is in stock.
Overall Review: Got my package in perfect condition so that's a good start. Had my pc for a week and everything runs smoothly. Temp is good, and haven't had any issues so for the price this is an amazing cpu
Pros: Scored 13576 on Passmark and 2293 on cinebench with an Asrock b450m Motherboard with 8 gig of Ram. That's way higher than my Ryzen 5 1500X first gen cpu which scored 10448 on passmark.
That was stock settings, no overclock
Overall Review: Great bang for the buck.....
