AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

In this analysis, let’s look at the latest AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. A modern design, a chiplet design, X570 chipsets and we have some procs to look at, of course! Over the past year, AMD has been going solid, rattling all the cages with an Intel badge on them. The third generation of AMD’s Ryzen CPUs offers the steady clock speed changes you would expect from a modern processor architecture. It also includes substantial ancillary advantages that will cater to upgraders and machine builders who seek a degree of future-proofing, several larger caches, and PCI Express 4.0 support. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X ($250) is one of the current lineup’s sweet spots. It lacks integrated graphics, like most AMD processors, but it makes up for it in terms of multithreading and fast overclocking, two things that are lacking from some of its Intel rivals. For a standard or entry-level gaming PC, it’s an outstanding pick.

Ryzen Series 3000

The Ryzen series 3000, built under the codename ‘Matisse’, has a new chiplet architecture on a 7nm node. Ever since the first generation Ryzen was released, Ryzen has been a good run for AMD. Intel can still have the gain of faster per core speeds, but with an enormous number of security bugs, their processors have had it tough and, de facto, that has had an impact not only on their credibility but also on performance with all the security patches. Much less affected has been AMD. Continuing the story, with proper memory support, AMD got up-to-snuff over time, and while Intel was and still is faster in super-high-end game output due to its high Turbo clocks, many of you waited and sat stuff out as 7nm will be the manufacturing node where all standards and discrepancies are to be found. Well, Ryzen 3000 is here and it’s exciting, offering half the capacity, at approximately 1.25x the output, twice the density. In particular, gamers should be well-served as the combination of improved IPC at 15 percent and higher turbo frequencies should put the market up-to-snuff with game results.

Six Ryzen 3000 processors with a range of six to sixteen core products were announced by AMD. Six-core, twelve-thread Ryzen 3600(X), 3700(X) (8t/16t), 3800X (8c/16t) and Ryzen 9 3900X (12c/24t). And that means that silicon with two 8-core CPUs dies will enter the industry immediately. When you add the clock frequency boost, AMD guarantees IPC increases of approximately 15 percent and even 25 percent. The bulk of Ryzen models will earn 4.4~4.6 GHz turbo bins. One flagship processor, the Ryzen 9 3950X, a sixteen-core component with thirty-two threads and 4.7 GHz Turbo binning, was also announced by AMD.

Chiplet design

Beginning with Ryzen 3000, aka ZEN2, AMD is now successfully progressing towards a chiplet architecture. Multi-die chips are what we’re talking about when we refer to a chiplet configuration because many chips in one box are what we’re talking about. It’s one of the many answers to be able to combat Moore’s Rule, now and in the future. The technology was already used by AMD to connect multiple processors in Threadripper and, for servers, in Epyc. In reality, with Kaby Lake-G, also Intel. Chiplets, there are several chips placed together on an interposer that forms the real chip.

AMD Ryzen 3000, Zen 2 Chiplets have an I/O die along with 7nm CPU chiplets (each holding eight cores per die). AMD has been upgrading its Infinity Cloth, which ties the various dies that carry the cores, to be able to do that. Via the Infinity Cloth, the new Epyc, Ryzen, and Threadripper CPUs are all related.AMD places one I/O die chip with the Zen 2 architecture that sits in the center, which is linked to two 8-core dies. These AMD CPU chiplets are related to the 

Infinity Fabric 2nd generation (the interlink wires that connect them all). Why build chiplets? When making massive monolithic CPU/GPU dies, one of the bigger problems at hand is that yields decline almost exponentially, and costs go up because of non-working dies. In one box, many smaller chips have higher yields, fewer errors, and can thus be more profitable.

Architecture

The architecture of Zen 2 is a Zen advancement, and Zen has certain bottlenecks that had to be solved. This is solved in this design and, at the same time, additional flexibility has been introduced in essential ways due to the smaller 7nm transistors. The photo below shows the Zen 2 core block diagram. A new branch predictor, a larger micro-op cache, an extra unit of address generation, and a new floating-point unit can be spotted, which can accommodate 256-bits at the same time.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

You will note certain variations between the three stages of the cache. The instruction cache of L1 has been smaller, the data cache remains the same as the last-gen. The cache of L2 is almost the same, but the cache of L3 has been doubled from the last-gen. The instruction cache of L1 has been reduced by AMD from 64 kB to 32 kB. The instruction cache includes the x86 instructions which are recovered for processing from the memory. However, by providing more inputs and outputs to this cache, 8-way associative instead of 4-way associative, it can compensate for the option of architecture.

Also, the influence of the smaller instruction cache is constrained by optimizing algorithms for pre-fetching instructions and increasing the caches at other levels (like the L3 cache). In Zen, the L1 data cache was 32 kB and for Zen 2 it stays at 32 kB. The L2 cache, which is now 512 kB per core, is likewise unchanged. However, the L3 cache is shared by the cores and that one has doubled in capacity. In a group called a core complex, four cores are partitioned together (CCX). The Zen processors of the earlier generation had 8 MB of L3 cache, which has been doubled to a whopping 16 MB of L3 cache. Why the cache of double L3? Well, to cope with the chiplet architecture, whereby the memory controller is physically housed in a separate chip, ergo a doubled L3 cache, AMD is required to fix the latencies for accessing working memory. It is expensive to raise some form of cache. It takes up a large portion of the usable budget for transistors, where 7 nm significantly helps out.

An enhanced branch predictor that is now operating according to a TAGE algorithm has also been equipped with Ryzen Gen 3. Scientific studies show that the best outcomes are given by this model predictor. Also, doubling the size of the micro-op cache to 4000 instructions is a significant modification. The floating-point execution units, computation units that essentially do math processing such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square root, and bit-shifting, have also undergone major improvements in the current architecture.

Zen 128-bit enabled, Zen 2 makes a step to 256-bit that allows us to support AVX2 instructions, which can now be interpreted in a single clock cycle. AVX512 is not supported yet by Zen2.

By doubling the bandwidth from 16 bytes per clock cycle to 32 bytes per clock cycle, load/store units have been optimized. L/S units transport data to and from the caches, and to and from the memory via that path.

A complete gain – Instructions  Per Cycle (IPC)

Both Infinity Fabric optimizations, together with the prediction for caches and op-caches, allow the Ryzen 3000 a faster architecture. Approximately 15 percent per clock cycle, and that is huge in processor territory. 7nm supports high clock speeds, too. A maximum clock frequency of 4.0~4.1 GHz could be reached by the first generation Ryzen (14nm). This Ryzen of the third generation raises it to 4.4~4.6 GHz by another notch. The 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X, for instance, can see a Turbo frequency of 4.7 GHz, and few higher-end processors do go beyond that rating.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

CPU hardening

For now, what I also wanted to share is that AMD further protected its hardware procs, there is CPU hardening built into the processor for Spectre v4 exploits, which is great news. Other vulnerability problems such as Meltdown, Foreshadow, and MDS were never vulnerable to the AMD processors.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

With a soldered heat spreader unlocked

Both Ryzen 5, 7 and 9 processors are unlocked, as per custom. So you may tweak them at your peril and overclock them. Processors of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series will feature a soldered integrated heat spreader (IHS). As the previous AMD Ryzen processors have featured a soldered IHS, this comes as no surprise. A soldered IHS is safer overall than using paste for the processor’s heat dissipation. For overclockable -K processors, Intel uses soldered IHS only. The drawbacks of a soldered IHS are that overall temperatures are much smaller. AMD’s new “Matisse” processor offering, or the Ryzen 3000 series, operates at normal temperature speeds.

DDR4 memory support

These days, the DDR4 support from AMD is strong, and it is planned to become great with Ryzen 3000 – almost all brands are supported, with an improvement in frequency support as well as a reduction in latency. The memory is set up in a dual-channel configuration for the Ryzen 3000. Standard DDR4 memory with 3200MT/s clock speeds supports all processors (JEDEC).

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

Please remember this: a 2:1 multiplier will kick in as soon as you go higher than DDR4-3733, and Infinity Fabric begins operating at half the frequency of the memory clock. At DDR4-3733, the 2:1 multiplier turns on, but note that it would affect the speed at which the different core complexes will interact with each other inside the CPU. AMD, therefore, recommends the DDR4-3600 speed for the best overall device performance. If you’re an overclocker, the effect is that the memory can be tweaked even more than you’re used to.

We have heard AMD say that the DDR4-4200 is very feasible. We have seen announcements of up-to 5100 MHz support (OC). Memory latency has been further lowered by 33ns, and game output can be powered up. Often verify with your mainboard vendor if the DDR4 modules are supported, also giving a QVL list.

 (XFR )  and Precision Boost 2 

Some processor models from Ryzen finish with an X, others do not. The X versions are a bit more unusual in that they would have a higher base and raise the frequency of the clock, as well as an extended frequency spectrum (XFR). You have the regular Turbos, Precision Boost, that each of the cores can accommodate. On top of that, though, is XFR; if the processor is under optimum conditions such as liquid cooling, for example, it will clock a bit faster than the maximum Turbo clock frequency. Precision Boost 2 and XFR 2 CPUs from Ryzen 3000 are both enhanced to provide a better performance, especially in tasks that have multiple light threads, such as sports. In tasks that have multiple light threads, Precision Boost 2 can assist Ryzen processors to perform better.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

The above slide, I want to add, is showing Precision Boost 2, depending on your cooling performance it could potentially add 200 MHz. The fastest processor with its 16 cores runs default with 4700 MHz Turbo bins, so a couple of extra threads 200 MHz higher would be pretty awesome.

Backward compatibility

Chipset compatibility has been a subject of conversation. Basically, in brief, you can seek a BIOS/firmware upgrade from your motherboard’s vendor whether you have a Series 300 or 400 chipsets AMD motherboard. Ryzen 3000 processors will work fine (read: should) with one distinction, you have returned to PCIe Gen 3.0, and that also applies to the interlink between the CPU and chipset based on x4 PCIe. We see a similar condition when we reverse the situation (use a Ryzen Series 1000 or 2000 on X570), most of the older Ryzen processors will work fine on X570, just not at PCIe 4.0.0.

Ryzen 3000 (Matisse) delivers 24 lanes PCIe 4.0

A total of 24 PCIe Gen4 lanes will be provided for Ryzen 3000 CPUs, yes, Gen 4.0.0. Four out of the twenty-four are used for the interconnect to the X570 chipset, leaving 20 lanes Gen 4.0 for other utilization. 16 lanes (PCIe x16) are designed for graphics cards that are connected to x8 as x16 or 2. A Gen 4.0 x8 link, seen from Gen 3.0, would offer similar bandwidth to PCIe 3.0 x16. For fast storage, such as PCIe 4.0 NVMe compatible SSDs, four additional PCIe lanes from the CPU are intended. In addition to all that, AMD has integrated USB 3.2 Gen2 support into the CPU, which means you get four SuperSpeed 10 Gbps USB ports.

Another 16 PCIe 4.0 lanes are provided by the X570 chipset.

When we move to the X570 chipset, it offers 16 additional lanes of PCIe Gen 4.0, these can be re-routed and shared. Per motherboard, things are going to be connected differently. PCIe slots, M.2 SSDs, LAN, card readers, or WiFi modules are to be connected via the new interface standard. The configuration depends on the respective motherboard.

The AMD X570 chipset was designed by AMD itself, unlike the X370 and X470, and here’s an interesting fact, the I/O chip mounted on the Ryzen 3000 processors and the AMD X570 chipset are the same chips, the Global Foundries 12nm version is used by CPUs, and the X570 chipset variant is the same thing, just manufactured on a 14nm process. Since the processor has a 12nm IO chip, which is the same as the X570 chipset, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Superspeed 10 Gbps) ports will also be offered.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

In addition to the 24 CPU PCIe lanes, X570 PCH includes sixteen PCIe lanes, with a total of 4 (four) 4-lane physical interfaces (4x PCIe 4.0 x4 PHY), fully configurable in PCIe x16, x8, x4, x2, x1, and SATA modes. 8x USB 3.2 Gen 2, 4x USB 2.0, 4x SATA and 8 separate PCI-Express 4.0 lanes are available on the X570 chipset. That leaves eight flexible lanes for PCI-Express and SATA that can be used. As you can see, in what they want to offer, the flexible design allows motherboard manufacturers lots of options. An AMD X570 motherboard might even get four M.2 slots for PCI-Express 4.0 x4 SSDs when you think about it.

Keep in mind that only Ryzen 3000 (Zen2) opens the X570 to the PCIe 4.0 x4 CPU. If a Ryzen 3000 family proc is used or, say, an older architecture-based APU, the connection to the chipset will become PCIe 3.0.0. In the end, AMD’s most advanced offering ever will be the X570 platform. It is about what Intel provides. The downside of all this new technology is that it is more complicated and costly to make motherboards. Expect starting prices to hover over USD 200.

If you don’t worry about PCI-Express 4.0 and the networking that comes with it, a firmware upgraded X370/X470 motherboard would offer you the very same output and memory-wise processor at a lower price tag.

Product Showcase

All right, it is time for some videos. We were given two additional processors from the Ryzen 3000 Series. Amazingly, the Socket AM4 also has a different architecture and chiplet design and hence a completely new CPU, and hence runs on selected 300/400 and X570 chipsets-based motherboards.

At a base clock of 3.80 GHz, the Ryzen 5 3600X processor clocks in, and can transform to 4.40 GHz based on load levels versus active threads. Since it’s an 8-core per die architecture (yes, the 6-core portion has 8 corsets, two of which are disabled), AMD handles the clock frequency very nicely. We genuinely expect the Ryzen 7 3700X to be the most common processor at 329 USD with 8-cores / 16 threads.

We suggest a Series 400 or 500 motherboard, X470/X570 of course, for the finest fine-grained Turbo support. Pop in a standard or high-end graphics card and you’ll be playing with Intel’s finest with a nice gaming rig. Should you like to use these procs with an older 300 or 400 series chipset, with a BIOS upgrade these processors would fit well (you need to update to a compatible BIOS before installing the new processor of course). We reviewed that, other than the latest PCIe Gen 4.0 motherboards, there is no output gap and they have better VRM architectures and more features that come with them, such as the new AX WIFI on selected motherboard models.

We test today with X570 and the Ryzen 5 3600X (6c/12t) Any good heat pipe cooler will work great, I guess we need the Wraith stock AMD cooler, too loud, but with selected processors, it offers cool looks, and well, it’s easy.

Power Consumption

In an IDLE state, a PC (motherboard / processor / Graphics Card / memory / SSD) consumes roughly 50~60 Watts. This number depends on the motherboard (added ICs / controllers/wifi / Bluetooth) and PSU and will vary accordingly (efficiency). Bear in mind that we measure the ENTIRE PC, not just the power consumption of the processor. If you add optical drives, HDDs, sound cards, etc, your average PC may differ from our numbers.

I want to make it clear that calculations of power usage can vary per PC and setup. Your attached components use electricity, but external ICs, such as an audio controller, 3rd party chips, network controllers, extra SATA controllers, extra USB controllers, and so on, can also be mounted on your motherboard. Such components all absorb resources, so these observations are a subjective indicator. Next, all CPU cores are 100 percent stressed and hence demonstrate peak power consumption. Your total power usage would be much lower because you transcode the video with the proper program.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

Temperatures

The reason we don’t table temperature outcomes is that on both platforms we will like to apply the same cooling over and over. Coolers (RPM) often react to TDP and variables such as BIOS differently. Therefore, a temperature stress measurement is simply plotted. Positive news btw, AMD no longer separates Tdie from Tctl (offset for fan activity). There’s just one attribute to track, so what you see is what you get.

Frames per secondGameplay
<30 FPSvery limited gameplay
30-40 FPSaverage yet very playable
40-60 FPSgood gameplay
>60 FPSbest possible gameplay  

So if a graphics card barely handles less than 30 FPS, then the game is not very playable, we want to avoid it at all costs. With 30 FPS up to about 40 FPS, at certain graphically intensive parts, you will be very able to play the game with perhaps a tiny stutter. Overall, the experience was very enjoyable. Match this result with the best possible resolution and you will have the best possible rendering quality versus resolution, hey you want both of them to be as high as possible. When a graphics card does 60 FPS on average or higher then you can rest assured that at every point in the game will probably play extremely smoothly, turn on every possible IQ setting in-game.

Monitor Setup

Setting up your monitor’s contrast & brightness levels is a very important thing to do before playing games. Recently, I realized that a lot of you guys incorrectly set up your monitor. How can we know that? Because now and then, we get a few emails telling us that a reader in our reviews can not distinguish between the benchmark charts (colors). We realized that your monitor is not properly set up if that happens.

Taking a look at the graph above, what are you looking for?

Top bar – This simple test pattern is evenly spaced, with no profile embedded, from 0 to 255 brightness levels. If your monitor is set up correctly, you should be able to differentiate each step by the same amount, and each step should be visually distinct from its neighbors. The dark-end step differences should also be approximately the same as the differences in the light-end steps. The first step should finally be completely black.

The three lower blocks – the far left box is a black box with a tint lower than black in the middle of a small box. A lined square, with a central grey square, in the middlebox.

A smaller “grey” box is available in the far-right white box, which should barely be visible.

All small differences should be able to be distinguished, only then you monitor is set up properly contrast and saturation wise.

Processor performance: CineBench 15

Systems with up to 256 threads are supported by CB15. As usual, based on 3D scenes, the performance of processors and graphics cards is determined. A selection of test results makes it possible to roughly classify the benefits of your system. A scene with about 280,000 polygons is used for the CPU test, whereas the OpenGL-based GPU test comes with about a million polygons, high-resolution textures, and different effects. Final points (CPU) and fps will be issued with the results (GPU). The software has been “extensively developed to exploit the performance of new hardware as possible.” according to the developers. Unsurprisingly, the results are not comparable with those from previous versions. You’ll find that we do need a lot of processors to be installed, all in due time. The single-core perf paints a different image here, you’ll find.

Instructions per cycle (IPC)

Over time, this IPC test will build up and get revised. At 3500 MHz, we lock all processor cores. That way, you can see the output of the processor architecture clocked at precisely the same frequency. This is a single calculation of a thread. In terms of how fast an architecture per core is, for many people, this is the holy grail of CPU calculations. I, though, prefer to say there’s more to it than that, and it will be higher frequency allowances, caches, and memory latency determining that per core output.

Depending on what model you equate with, which is enormous in processor soil, you will find a 10 to 12 percent IPC improvement over the initial ZEN architecture.

Processor performance: CineBench 20

Maxon launched their Cinebench R20 benchmark, more capable of dealing with the highly threaded processors. You need a PC that has at least 4 GB of memory and support for the SSE3 instruction set. Maxon notes that, relative to Cinebench R155, Cinebench R20 currently uses four times the memory and eight times the CPU processing power.

Benchmarks: De/Compression – 7-Zip Multi-threaded

We’ll step over compression device implementations in this chapter of the benchmarks. We’ll use 7-ZIP and look at the efficiency of compression as well as decompression. 7-Zip is a multi-threading archiver that displays incredibly well, especially in de-compression.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

Benchmarks: Google Chrome – Kraken and Jetstream Browser

We added this benchmark because it’s an underrated thing, it’s something we do on the PC all the time, so we’re adding a proper performance evaluation of the browser. Multiple dynamic equations based on javascript are introduced by the Mozilla Kraken-browser benchmark. This will provide you a clear browser efficiency rundown. We’re checking Google Chrome for the newest version. JetStream is a benchmark JavaScript suite based on the most sophisticated web applications. Better are bigger ratings. It is obvious to Jetstream that it prefers non-SMT processors (hyperthreaded).

Video Transcoding

For systems that have more CPU cores, video transcoding is well suited. One of the most intensive tasks a processor can perform is encoding/transcoding to the x.264 formats. We encoded a 150 MB h.264 DTS 1080P trailer to Matroska x.264 with 5.1 AC3 channels in this test. For benchmarking the CPU and memory, this program is fine. This title also helps you to test features such as AVX and OpenCL with Compute Wise. Right now, we are checking brute processor performance, though. Handbrake for a limit of 16 threads.

The number shown is the average number of frames made per second during the encoding process. The greater the quantity, the quicker the output is. In applications such as these, it is precisely where processors with more cores shine as they are all used to the limit. Even the reduced handbrake at 16 threads also reveals beautifully that better profit output was clocked by more cores.

Performance System Memory: Memory Read Test

For our memory checks, copying, writing, and delay are broken up. During the other experiments and benchmarks, we used 3200 MHz on the memory subsystem. With the single die 6 and 8-core components in writing results, you’ll find something odd. Within a second, we’ll worry about it.

Game performance 

At 720p (1280×720 pixels) resolution, we continue to implement game evaluations. Using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card with the best settings, the games checked are converted to 720p.

Why does it weigh 1280×720 in Guru3D? Based on user/reader base demands, we include 720p results. It is here that CPU scaling is highly evident. If you think a little bit about what you’re seeing in the 720p to 1440p maps, you’ll understand that what I’m seeing is the result of raw CPU efficiency, not limited by some kind of situation bound to the GPU. That’s also why we want to test your cash with the fastest and most expensive graphics card that will get you in 2019.

We know pretty well that no one buys a PC with an RTX 2080 Ti to play with Ryzen 3900X at 720p, but the effects are of a theoretical and statistical value. PC gamers with fast 120 Hz and 144 Hz displays could also be involved in 720p numbers. Here, 720p experiments act as a quantitative test and, actually, an extra synthetic test. To avoid any GPU constraints, our GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is included. For, assume, an RTX 2070 or Radeon RX 5700, the fact is clear – the ratings will be far closer to each other.

Verdict

You know that. When you put it in the perspective of money/perf wise, I’m pretty impressed with the 3600X. If you’re developing a high-end DIY PC, and you need a fair-budget gaming CPU, well, here’s where the 3600 and 3600X come into play. The 3600 will cost you $199, while the X edition will cost you $50 more (the only thing different is 200 MHz extra on both base and boost). Pair that with the compatible B450/X470 motherboard series and you’re going to get some serious gaming-fire power coming at you. See, the bonus is that you get 6 cores and 12 threads built on the all-new ZEN2 micro-architecture, which means fast turbos and super high IPCs.Overall, this is a very fast setup in desktop mode, and in games, it battles against the 9600K/9700K/8700K and its own 8-core Ryzen 7 2700 series. Given its price guy that isn’t a bad proposition, except with the fastest graphics cards, you’d be all right.

AMD is where they deserve and need to be, and it’s similar to team blue’s desktop success standard. There will be gains and losses from both sides, of course, but ultimately AMD has the best platform infrastructure to deliver, the more stable processor, and now the output to go with it. It was just the first quarter of 2017 that AMD launched Zen with the Ryzen 7 1800X. In just over two years, they are now as competitive as Intel, with a more mature PCIe Gen 4.0 platform as well. Ryzen has grown and matured, all this leads to latency, improved memory support, quicker base clocks, higher turbo bins, the accumulation of all that has become Ryzen 3000.
