The upcoming $250 Ryzen 5 3600X outshines the 230$ Core i5-9600K by healthy margins in UserBenchmark
Already we have seen a lot of benchmarks of the upcoming Ryzen 3000 processors, and they are quite impressive. Now we have the benchmarks of the upcoming budget Ryzen 5 3600X CPU.
UserBenchmark is not one of the best benchmarking tools but still, it gives a fair idea of the processor’s ability to perform daily tasks or its gaming capability.
The leak expert TUM_APISAK shared the UserBenchmark of the Ryzen 5 3600X on Twitter. So, in the benchmark, we see the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X performs 10% faster in gaming than its closest competitor – the Intel Core i5-9600K.
For the workstation oriented purpose i.e. the multi-threaded performance is 25% better for the 12 threaded Ryzen 5 3600X than the 6 threaded Core i5-9600K.
This new Ryzen chip performs very well compared to the Intel counterpart and its almost 20% faster than team blue on an average. Expectedly, for multi-threaded performance, it blows the i5-9600K and is 50% faster.
Overclocked speed is not something you can rely on this data because if you see the peak clock speed given for the Ryzen 5 3600X is only 3.9GHz. When it will be really be overclocked, I feel the performance will be much better even better than Core i5-9600K.
If you have noticed one thing, the Ryzen 5 3600X has much single-threaded performance than Intel which we also saw for the Ryzen 5 3600 benchmarks. Thanks to the Zen 2 microarchitecture and the efficient 7nm process, these new chips live up to the consumer expectation.
In the speed rank, it is 13th and the Core i5-9600K ranks 28th, I really imagine how beastly these chips are without even overclocking and how will they perform after being overclocked!!
When I compared the $250 Ryzen 5 3600X to the $350 Core i7-9700K, surprisingly the 6 core Ryzen chip outperformed the 8 core Intel counterpart and beat it by 1% margin in gaming and by 5% multi-threaded performance.
Also in speed rank, the i7-9700K ranks 14th, losing to the Ryzen 5 3600X by a single position. This suggests that not only its closest competitor but also the upcoming Ryzen 5 3600X performs better than its $100 more counterpart.
