AMD Ryzen 5 5600G 6-Core 12-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Radeon Graphics

This is the lowest price I have seen for the CPU except for an instore-only Microcenter $200 price that wasn't available to many folks.

The processor has fast integrated graphics and is a good choice for a fast office computer or HTPC, and even for light gaming if you don't want to plunk out for an overpriced GPU right now. It only has PCIE3, but folks looking to use the iGPU probably do not care much.

AMD used to be the value leader in CPUs, but Intel is roaring back in this respect. you buy [cpubenchmark.net] a somewhat [gadgetversus.com] faster [nanoreview.net] Intel Core i5-12400 Alder Lake 6C/12T LGA 1700 for $198.99 (Promo Code EMCBN2A53) coupon expired now $208.99 from Newegg [newegg.com]. But a compatible LGA1700 motherboard is probably about $40? more expensive than a AM4 board that will work with the Ryzen.

Yes, as long as your motherboard supports HDMI 2.1 (or maybe 2.0, I forget).

When gaming at 1080p using an RTX 3090, the Core i5-12400 is 20% faster than the AMD Ryzen 5600G and is 11% faster than the AMD Ryzen 5600G with PBO enabled. Source: Tom's Hardware

You can mine a couple cpu coins for maybe 25cents a day. But the 5600x is 50% faster for cpu mining. And no gpu mining on the integrated.

That's the funny thing about people saying Intel is cheaper. Motherboards are more expensive, so Intel isn't necessarily cheaper and in many cases, more expensive, in some other cases, way more expensive depending on type/size of motherboard.

Get should I get this, or a 1600 AF? I can probably find somebody selling a ten + year-old GPU for twenty bucks somewhere.
It's for an office PC

Can I do 4k@60Hz with its integrated graphics?
Why not? Pretty much all recent igp can do 4k 60 starting with Intel hd630, and that was 2017
