    AMD Ryzen 5 3500 Specs and 3DMark Physics Score: New Budget Gaming CPU?

    - Advertisement -

    Apparently, the AMD Ryzen 5 3500 is a real thing. We’d covered a European Economic Union listing of the supposed 3rd gen Ryzen part earlier. But today, famous industry insider TUM_APISAK revealed just a bit more information about the midrange processor.

    Keep in mind that we don’t have official confirmation on any of this. However, we’re reasonably certain that the 3500 does exist. What does that mean? We’ll hear from AMD soon enough and we’ll pass that on to you.

    According to TUM_APISAK, the Ryzen 5 3500 will have 6 cores and 6 threads. It’ll also feature a 4.1 GHz boost clock and a 3.6 GHz base clock. This is a step down from the 6 core/12 thread design of the Ryzen 5 3600. Indeed it’s the first hexacore Ryzen part we’ve seen without Simultaneous Multi-Threading. Previously, SMT had only been disabled on the entry-level Ryzen 3 line, with quad-core 4-thread processors like the Ryzen 3 1200 and the 2200G. The supposed 3500 has a lot more in common with Intel’s i5 9600K, a hexacore midrange part with hyperthreading disabled currently going up against Ryzen 5 3600.

    While the 3600 enjoys a massive advantage in multithreaded titles, as well as noticeably better gaming performance, price cuts have made the 9600K a reasonably competitive option. Is Intel going up against AMD on price-performance? What’s the world coming to? In any case, the Ryzen 5 3500 most likely exists to take the fight back to Intel. A hexacore Ryzen 5 with SMT disabled could significantly undercut the Core i5-9600K while offering comparable performance. TUM_APISAK gave us a taste of what that would be like by also providing a 3DMark Physics score for the CPU. The processor scores approximately 12,800 in that test. This is a bit on the low end, but again, we have no idea about the graphics hardware being used. Or even if these numbers are legit, for that matter.

    Anyways, we’ll let you know as soon as we get an official confirmation about the 3500. Stay tuned.
