AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X could easily slam core i5-10600K with its Zen 3 architecture

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.
