    That's not what I meant.
    Thing is if you buy one of those b550 from shop or amazon right now, they come with older bios that doesn't support the 5k series.
    Same thing when Intel launched 9k series to work on z370 with bios update, no boards with updated bios where in stock for a few months.
    I changed 4 z370 boards from amazon with no luck, till I gave up and bought the z390 (native support).

    There is only one option, you buy the board and hope to have someone with an older ryzen to borrow so you can update the bios.

    PS: None of the shops I buy from including amazon don't do bios upgrade, maybe something local which I don't have.

    @tty8k well just then choose one that supports flashing without cpu installed , it's a rather common feature nowdays.

    All major e-tailers in Poland offer that service for 5 euro.
    Also GIGABYTE boards you can update bios without CPU common feature.

    5600X is way beyond entry level.

    Im totally fine with that kind of entry :). Look 3 years ago what did same money get You(339$ msrp i7 7700k). You could argue that 5600X is a STEAL.

    7700k was top of the range cpu while 5600X is not even close. Smart thing would be waiting for 5600 at 220$. Now thats an real entry.

    Of course , just speaking of pure performace for $ you get now , its big progress over 3 years ,compare to that before , for 6 years you did nothing with Intel ( 5% per generation upgrade).

    310 EUR+- . Shop says there have alot of processors , wonder if that is true :) . I Got my 3300X from that shop with preorder for excellent price 130 eur

    People on enthusiast forums have a rather distorted perspective of "entry level" tbh.

    RYZEN 5800X :)

    Exactly :) , if it wasn't for AMD we would all have a i7 4 Core 10700K at $500

    Probably true but this is an Enthusiast forum after all.
    To pick up a point someone mentioned earlier in the forum re the 5700 I would not personally bother, its like the 2700 I bought for my Wifes PC (now replaced with a 3900x) it was pretty maxed out as it came and had very little room to improve, overclocking didnt do a lot and it was quite temperamental and would crash if you tried to tweak Ram especially, I would say the x version is worth the extra because you just hit that PBO and step back its that good

    Theoretically in AMD world 8-core is today's mid-range, while 16 or more is Enthusiast / High-end (and the 3900X/5900X 12-core being "almost" High-end)

    6-core would definitely be below mid-range, so it costing $300 is a bit too much.

    We need a 5600 non X and perhaps some cheap quad cores for those that play E-sports games that need clocks and single-threaded performance more than cores.
    The 3300X was a good attempt, but poorly executed unfortunately.

    ---
    This is how I see it:

    4-core Entry level/Low end
    6-core Mid-Low range
    8-core Mid-range
    12-core Mid-High range
    16-core Enthusiast level / High-end
    TR 24-32 core Pro level, or "I'm rich and I don't care"
    TR 64 core ... compensating for something

    3300X was good joke from AMD. If you can find one it's priced almost same as 3600....

    I'm interested so enlighten me if you know any b550 model. Hopefully doesn't cost a fortune, after all it's meant for a "budget" 5600x.

    ALL Gigabyte models that support Q-flash :

    Q-Flash USB Port
    This is no longer a problem with the new Q-Flash Plus feature. By simply downloading the latest BIOS and renaming it on a USB thumb drive, and plugging it into the dedicated port, you can now flash the BIOS automatically without the need to press any buttons or even the need of onboard memory or CPU.

    Quite from GB site , also bolded in mobo features "
    • Q-Flash Plus Update BIOS without Installing the CPU, Memory and Graphics Card


    I Have B550 Aorus Elite , quite good mobo , around 120-150 EUR . But there are many many options . Market is flooded with good B550 mobos.

    I knew about Q-flash plus but was only available on premium expensive mobos till recently.
    Q-flash (no plus) was on most of them but doesn't work without a cpu.

    Nevertheless thanks for the info, good to know for the future.

    Cinebench scores are in 2000 points, my old 5960x would score at 4.7Ghz something like 1700-1730 points and this bloody 5600X is just 6 core/12 thread, awesome value for money from 5600X

    Thanks, Jura

    For reference my 8700K on Ln2 at 6.9Ghz hit 2335cb I had a 2200Mhz clock advantage and that 5600X at 4.7Ghz is only 300cb behind! These things on cold are going to be beasts!
