The AMD Ryzen 5 7600 is a CPU from AMD’s latest Zen 4 65W desktop processor lineup. The company marketed this as a “gaming processor”, aligning it towards mid-range gaming PC builds.

Retailing at RM1,069, the CPU is built on TSMC’s 5nm process and equipped with a modest 6 cores and 12 threads.
Just like the AMD Ryzen 9 7900, the Ryzen 5 7600 has a 2-core Radeon iGPU. While useful for initial setup and daily media consumption, it is lethargic when it comes to even the most basic forms of gaming. A discreet GPU is highly recommended for any reasonable GPU performance.

The Ryzen 5 7600 scored 13,617 points for Cinebench R23, which is slightly lower than the Ryzen 5 7600X.
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
For Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, we managed to get a total of 36,491 frames rendered, with an average frame rate of 232 FPS, putting it on par with the Ryzen 9 7900. It is safe to say there is no CPU bottlenecking for this title.
The Witcher 3
When it comes to The Witcher 3 with the latest graphics update, we start to see some performance drop when compared to the Ryzen 9 7900. Don’t get me wrong, the performance is still great with an average of 153 FPS with ray tracing and DLSS turned on, especially considering that it is almost half the price of the Ryzen 9.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
The Ryzen 5 7600 managed an average frame rate of 380 FPS on very high settings. While the game is not graphically demanding by any means, it does place more load on the CPU.
For thermals, I ran HeavyLoad for 20 minutes, and I was baffled. The Ryzen 5 7600 managed to hit almost 74°C on a 360mm AIO cooler, which is quite high for a CPU of this core count.
The market sorely needed a budget friendly CPU in this generation, and fortunately AMD delivered a workhorse. At RM1,069, it is now more accessible for users to get upgrade to AM5, owing to high AM5 motherboard prices.
