AMD Ryzen 5 8600G Review

AMD‘s Ryzen 8000 APUs are here and I was fortunate enough to take the Ryzen 5 8600G for a test run. While sentiment may have been mixed for the Ryzen 7 8700G, the more affordable Ryzen 5 8600G has proved to be a much better product. If only because it’s price doesn’t place it in direct competition with older GPU and CPU combinations. At just under R5,500 at Progenix. This APU allows people to get into PC gaming at 1080P for a reasonable price. It’s not going to handle all games well at 1080P, but thanks to FSR it is capable of playing advanced games such as CyberPunk 2077. For what it is, it’s hard to find fault with the 8600G. It’s a great little APU that should provide plenty of oomph for years to come.
