I have a R5 3600 right now. How many years until it will be considered low-end?

No one can tell the future. Upgrade when you see fit

As the title says. I upgraded to a 3600 last year on december I had the budget for something greater but I have a low end mobo wich supports all the way to 3600 I believe.

in terms of new builds, prolly next year when zen 3 rolls out; in terms of being so weak that it won't do its job (gaming), a long time.

 

I don't see many people with the 2600 anymore, some even upgraded when the 3600 was 140usd for a bit. I expect the same if not more of this next cycle once cheap 8-16 cores leak onto the used market.

It depends on what your goals are. If you're trying to do 60fps gaming its going to work for a very long time. If you want high refresh rate gaming then its already on the lower end.

Oh alright. I always play games on competitive settings (low or med) and I get quite some frames. Only game that I have trouble playing is warzone since I have to lower my render resolution to the minumum wich is 66.

What gpu are you using? The 3600 will be usable for quite a while I think. I’m using a 1700x at 1440p in one of my PCs and its doing fine still and it’s a good bit weaker then the 3600.

Hmm... Well, for me, the moment a new shinny CPU comes out, it is considered... Outdated.

 

Anyway, to answer your question, when vast majority of people consider 8 cores CPU as normal or 5GHz CPU as normal, that's when the Ryzen 5 3600 processor became low-end. I say it might be another 2 or 3 years.

Then it's probably your GPU bottlenecking your build. I've seen people use R5 3600s for upto RTX 2070 cards. I wouldn't be too worried about the CPU being outdated for some time.
