The Ryzen 5 3600 is a member of AMD's third-generation Ryzen family. It's based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture and innovative 7nm process node. The processor rocks six cores, 12 threads, and up to 35MB of total cache. The six-core chip runs with a 3.6 GHz base clock and 4.2 GHz boost clock. It's rated with a 65W TDP (thermal design power) and comes with AMD's Wraith Stealth CPU cooler.
Equipped with an unlocked multiplier, Ryzen 5 3600 opens the door for manual overclocking if you want to squeeze out some free performance. The chip supports high-speed, dual-channel DDR4-3200 memory kits and puts 24 high-speed PCIe 4.0 lanes at your disposal in the event that you want to pair the 7nm chip with a PCIe 4.0 graphics card or SSD.
The Ryzen 5 3600 is eligible for the "Equipped to Win" gaming bundle. However, Newegg doesn't mention the bundle in its eBay listing. You might have to drop the retailer a message to see whether the bundle is included.
