Is Ryzen 5 good for Gaming? AMD Ryzen 5 5600G benchmark

Gaming on an iGPU is back with the new Zen 3 AMD APUs! This Ryzen 5 5600g benchmark will reflect everything! A couple of months back, AMD held their launch event at CES 2021, where they announced that a new family of APUs is coming into the market for DIY PC builders. These are AMD’s first 7nm Cezan...

The Ryzen 5 5600G does work fine with most gpus. The only exception is the AMD RX6500XT, which requires PCIe 4.0 to work properly. The 5600G supports only PCIe 3.0, but the I3-10105 is a PCIe 3.0 cpu, too. Get the Ryzen pc.


AMD Ryzen 5 5600G Review

For those who want an IGP-equipped chip that can reliably power many games above 60fps at low resolutions (a ceiling that could reach even higher, with some careful Radeon Software tuning), the Ryzen 5 5600G presents the perfect balance of price and performance, unlike anything Intel can offer on the other side in 2021.

And I know the PSU has a fan but under most loads it doesn't spin at all in my experience so I am still getting a perfectly silent build for my beautiful Open-Back headphones and some light gaming with the 5600g enabling my favorite Rhythm games (easily over 144hz, 1080p) and some solid emulation. And who knows, maybe I will still slot in a GPU? I definitely have the space. Cable management was a tiny bit of a puzzle but nothing particularly crazy.

The best APU/iGPU, good value over the 5600X

Awesome especially if you want to make a mini PC. The Zen 3 6-cores on this are way better than my old Zen 1 8-Core 1700X. The built in graphics are good enough for light gaming and driving multiple high res monitors. At 65 TDP, the included stock cooler doesn't even spin high enough for me to hear ...

Before swapping, I was able to flash and update bios and install windows just fine on the 5600g. After the swap, I’m getting the CPU light for a few seconds before the VGA light on the mobo. Do I need to reflash the bios?


NO GPU NEEDED Gaming PC! The Ryzen 5600G Is Amazing!

If you want to get this to run at or over 60, we'll have to turn on that dynamic resolution scale, but again, just like we saw with call of duty warzone, it will dramatically decrease the resolution and finally, cyberpunk 2077 720p low 80 resolution scale. We averaged 52 fps, so yeah. These amd apus have definitely come a long way since the second generation, let's say the 2200g or the 2400g, with the 5600g or even the 5700g
