AMD ships Ryzen 5 3600 CPUs in Ryzen 3 3200G boxes


In China, AMD is shipping some Ryzen 5 3600 CPUs in packaging meant for weaker chips especially Ryzen 3 3200G, as per Facebook post from Chinese hardware site HKEPC. AMD had placed a sticker seal on the box indicating that the product inside was the Ryzen 5 3600. It’s possible that the situation is the result of a simple mistake during packaging. Even though these boxes did have the processors they ordered. It’s common for mix-ups to happen when ordering components online. So this is just another reminder to double-check what’s in the box (and what your system reads as installed) before you wrap up your latest build.
