Just a few hours ago, Teclab published the gaming benchmarks of two AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT and Intel Core i5-10400 processors. Thus, we had the opportunity to find out the performance of a fresh, six-core Matisse Refresh sample.
To begin with, you should take into account the fact that the Ryzen 5 3600XT is a 95 watt chip, and the Core i5-10400 is a 65 watt chip. In any case, the official information tells us about it. However, unofficially, we know that the power consumption of the Core i5-10400 can go up to 90 watts.
Let’s take a look at the performance comparison between AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT and Intel Core i5-10400:
|Game||Intel Core i5-10400 (Average FPS)||AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (Average FPS)|
|World War Z (1080p Vulkan)||162 FPS||160 FPS|
|CS:GO (1080p)||349.56 FPS||351.49 FPS|
|Shadow of The Tomb Raider (1080p DX12)||116 FPS||115 FPS|
|Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint (1080p Vulkan)||129 FPS||126 FPS|
|Metro Exodus (1080p DX12)||74.34 FPS||73.29 FPS|
|Rainbow Six Siege (1080p)||307 FPS||303 FPS|
|Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (1080p)||78 FPS||81 FPS|
|Borderlands 3 (1080p DX12)||82.46 FPS||79.64 FPS|
It seems that the results obtained by our colleagues are very, very not encouraging specifically for the Ryzen 5 3600XT processor. Judge for yourself: it is priced at $ 249, while the rival Core i5-10400 chip, which is not inferior to it, costs only ~ $ 190.
Moreover, the recently discounted Ryzen 5 3600X is also not the most profitable purchase, because its price is $ 200.
But in fact, no matter how strange it may sound, in the near future, AMD does not make sense to lower prices for its six-core models. After all, in addition to a cheap processor, a budget board should come with it, but Intel is now having problems with this.
Motherboards compatible with the LGA 1200 socket are currently not cheap, and therefore a system based on this platform will come out much more expensive.
So, we can only say that the Intel Core i5-10400 processor is really more profitable, but as a platform, for now, it is more logical to invest in AMD AM4.
Obviously, the situation will improve in the coming months and budget boards for LGA 1200 will appear, but so far we have what we have.
