    Probably splitting hairs but 4£ more is sold by amazon itself. 4£ is 4£ but I'd get the one sold directly by them in case of any issues. Heat regardless! (edited)

    The G has built in graphics but has less memory. The 5600x will be better clocked with more L3 memory. 16mb vs 32mb.

    5600G really meant for systems with no graphics. Otherwise 5600x will be much faster.

    Of course if original tombraider maybe a cheaper graphics card might do?

    I don't really seem to see cheap gfx cards. Granted a CPU, memory and mobo will cost me at least £250. But I have the rest of the parts. Preferably would like a good cheap AMD gfx card with Linux support. All my old GFX cards are pretty much abandonware.

    Tip: if you're looking for a CPU for gaming, this is almost identical in performance to the 5600x.
    A little bit less to spend on your PC!

    It's so confusing having multiple models. I'm spotted the 5600g for £140 from ebuyer. I wouldn't have know the caches were slightly different in these chips.


    I like the idea of running the chip at 65w with graphics. That's pretty sweet. If I was to go separate GFX card route, what's a cheapish card recommended that would beat the APU on the 5600G? What's a good price for a card these days?

    But when I started to look, I couldn't work out if I would be better buying something like a 4600g, is there really that much between these chips? (edited)

    I upgraded my r5 2600 to this recently. Quite happy with it! I'm not an expert but it does run a bit hot. I'll likely buy a new cooler for it.

    This has been getting rave reviews lately. Looks like a great cooler for the money

    There is a CCL deal with company of heroes 3 free for £5.78 more.

    Think the fact it's not sold by Amazon is why no one posted this a few days ago.

    What's the difference between 5600g and 5600x variants? Do all ryzens come with the apu?

    And now that they are aging are they a wise investment, or should I hold out for a better arch?

    I have a 1st gen i7 and looking about for gfx cards, most second hand ones are gas guzzlers like the CPU. I don't care about the latest games. And not totally bothered about running anything in more than Full hd gaming. Though would like 4k/qhd support for work.

    I have epic free ies like Tomb Raider that's the kind of thing that would be nice to play. (edited)

    The 5600g has an APU so doesn't need a discrete GPU. The 5600x needs a separate GPU
