Which store was selling the 5600 for 199?

I've never seen it at $199. I personally don't shop at CC, the convenance of Amazon Prime makes it worth it for me (YMMV).

Get the one with G at the end.
Should be the same price.

If you don't have a GPU then yeah, go for the G. But if you have a GPU, why pay the same for an inferior chip? Doesn't the 5600G have less cache and only support pcie 3.0?

Yes, 5600G is inferior to the 5600. But it does have an integrated GPU. So different use cases as you mentioned.

5600G is actually cheaper. I think the performance in real world differs by a little.

Was that when CC was trying to match the Memory Express "grand opening sale" deals in Ontario?

I think so, yes. I'm not in Ontario so I didn't follow closely :)

5600 and 5600X are similar, while 5600G is quite different.

5600G is more like 5600H on desktop, with less L3 cache and only PCIe 3.0.

Personally I did pick 5600G since I do want to benefit from my old B450 motherboard.

For new build, it is better wait for 6000 series.

because it can play most games no issues. and is a good backup if your current gpu dies.

7000 series is for desktops, Zen 4 architecture and DDR5 only

You never know. Cezanne was meant for mobile. But now we have 5600G for desktop. If there is enough demand for Zen3 + RDNA2 (or maybe Van Gogh), why not.

My point is for B450/X470 user, 5600G/5700G is the best choice since B450/X470 cannot get PCIe 4 anyway. But for users new to AM4 platform, 5600 is the last generation, so it is better wait for AM5 platform.

BTW, Canada Computers has 5600G for $208 ($218 listed - $10 coupon).
