Last week, I received my new CPU, AMD Ryzen 5 5600G. It is used to replace the old Ryzen 5 2400G.

It is about 50% to 100% performance improvements based on the different program comparisons.

For example:

Cinebench R23 (Single-core)

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is 1021.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is 1504. (+47%)

Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core)

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is 4800.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is 11077. (+130%)

Passmark CPU (Single-core)

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is 2160.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is 3209. (+48%)

Passmark CPU (Multi-core)

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is 8744.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is 19913. (+127%)

So, I think a lot to update the CPU without touching any other parts of my desktop.

I order it on The price is $279.99. Plus tax and shipping fee, I paid a total of $319.18.

When I opened the box and took everything out. It looks like below.

Long story short, I opened the PC case after disconnecting the power, remove the cooler, took down the Ryzen 5 2400G. Install the brand new Ryzen 5 5600G, put on the Wraith stealth cooler. Connect the power. Boot.

The motherboard give me a face, said it is a new CPU. I have to go into the BIOS to re-config it and boot again.

I log in the Windows 10. It did not ask me any questions about the new CPU. It doesn’t care about it.

OK, after a week of use, I got Windows 11 update notice and I did it. Now I am in Windows 11 to write this post.
