AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D to Launch July 7th for $229 at Micro Center Only

Micro Center today announced AMD’s new limited edition Ryzen 5 5600X3D processor for $229 while supplies last, exclusively in the company’s stores. A wholly proprietary arrangement between AMD and Micro Center will make retailers the sole source of Ryzen 5 5600X3D processors for the duration of their availability.

The 6-core 12-thread Ryzen 5 5600X3D features a total of 96MB of L3 cache. This comes thanks to AMD’s game-powering 3D V-Cache technology and will be built into the AM4 platform, which supports DDR4 memory, thus offering a lower-cost pathway.A powerful low-cost game system that trades blows best CPU for gaming, arguably even taking the crown for best midrange gaming chip. The Ryzen 5 5600X3D completes AMD’s portfolio of dedicated gaming X3D processors. Prices currently range from $229 to $669.

Intel’s Core i5-13400 processor currently leads the mid-range gaming market, but the Ryzen 5 5600X3D could offer faster gaming performance while being similarly priced overall. It could even match much more expensive processors like AMD’s own $540 Ryzen 9 7950X.
