AMD is really shaking things up in an even bigger way with its new Zen 3 architecture and upcoming Ryzen 5000 series processors, but a new rumored $220 chip could do some truly huge damage to Intel.

It's rumored that AMD will launch a new Ryzen 5 5600 -- a non-X version of the confirmed Ryzen 5 5600X processor. The Ryzen 5 5600 is a 6-core, 12-thread processor so we should expect the Ryzen 5 5600 to be a 6C/12T chip, too. We should see a cheap price of just $220 -- which should bring the pain to Intel's Core i7-10700 processor at close to just half the price.

If you were to mix the Ryzen 5 5600 or Ryzen 5 5600X with a cheap 500 series chipset motherboard and some fast DDR4 RAM, you're going to have a damn potent killer gaming system. Mix that in with the upcoming RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card (or GeForce RTX 30 series card) you would have a kick ass rig for 2021 gaming and beyond.
