It’s no secret that AMD is ruling the CPU market for a few years now, and the main series that brought them into the limelight has to be the Ryzen 3000 desktop processors.
In 2021, they are quite popular as AMD did not bring any budget Ryzen 5000 series CPU, so people are happy to buy the older Ryzen 5 3600, which seems to be more of a wine, getting more popular goes older.
The 6 core, 12 threaded CPU just costs $209.99; although it doesn’t give the best gaming performance, it still gives 100+ FPS performance if you pair with a good GPU. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 still holds a good value for a budget or a mid-range gaming PC as you can pair even an RTX 3060 or 3070 without any bottleneck.
Also, it is because of the fact that it is so efficient even in 2021, people are buying it regularly. It is one of the few six-core CPU that can readily be bought and used on any budget or the high-end motherboard; also, it comes with an in-box Wraith Stealth cooler to make the offering even more attractive.
As you see in the Top 6 list, the Ryzen 5 3600 is the best-selling CPU currently on Amazon US costing $209, and people are buying it even if it’s $10 more than the MSRP, signifying its value even in 2021.
All the best-selling CPUs are the AMD processors, two of them being from Ryzen 3000 family while the other four based out of Ryzen 5000 family.
The situtaion is also similar in India, the Ryzen 5 3600 being the best-seller for quite some time now and budget AMD CPUs gaining more popularity on Amazon India.
