AMD’s Ryzen series has been making quite rounds on the internet. Earlier, we discussed the alleged leak specifications of the EPYC Milan processors. AMD is even planning to release its all-new Ryzen 5000 series of processors. A few weeks ago, the Ryzen 9 5950X benchmark results went viral. It provided us with the mouth water specs of the Ryzen 9 chipset.
This time the alleged chip detective @Tum_Apisak has uncovered some juicy details regarding the upcoming Ryzen 5 5600X.
The 5600X will most likely go up against the Intel Core i5-10600K chipset.
According to sources, the Ryzen 5 5600X comes with six Zen 3 cores along with 12 threads. It sports a 32MB of L3 cache and is clocked at 3.7 GHz of base speed and 4.6 GHz of boost speed. The Core i5-10600K also has a six-core and 12-thread design. The chipset has 12MB of L3 cache and features 4.1 GHz of the base clock and 4.8 GHz of boost clock.
The Core i5-10600K has higher boost clocks out of the two. Intel’s CPU has a 125W Thermal Design Power rating, while its competitor, the Ryzen 5 5600X, is rated at 65W. The Core i5-10600K should be faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X, in theory, at least. Let’s not forget that Ryzen 5 5600X is based on AMD’s groundbreaking Zen 3 architecture.
It’s still too early to judge the performance of both the processors using benchmark scores alone.
AMD’s Ryzen 500 series will be based on the Zen 2 and Zen 3 architectures and will go on sale from 5th November. Both Intel and AMD are looking to get the upper hand in the on-going semiconductor wars. The competitions will be challenging, with both wafer manufacturers putting forth their next-gen wafer technologies to attract customers. As to who will prevail remains to be seen.
