AMD Ryzen 5 3600 XT put in Versus with Core i5-10400 in Gaming Benchmarks

by Rustam Iqbal

AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600XT CPU benchmarks have been brought out by Teclab, demonstrating us its exhibition in noteworthy gaming titles. The Ryzen 5 3600XT is a part of the revived Matisse CPU family which will reportedly release one week from now on 7th of July, including higher frequencies/clocks than existing Ryzen 3000 chips.

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT is an ultimate addition in the Ryzen 3000 CPU lineup that will offer six cores/ 12 threads alongside 35 MB of cache. The Ryzen 5 3600XT will provide a 3.8 GHz base and 4.5 GHz boost frequencies which are a noticeable improvement over the stock Ryzen 5 3600X. It’ll merely be somewhat lower clock speed than the Intel Core i5-10600K while offering massively better IPC and multi-threading execution out of the case, allowing AMD the chance to recover its situation in the standard market with Intel’s 10th generation processors.

Performance Verdict

The tests were directed on a B550 motherboard for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT and Z490 board for the Intel Core i5-10400 proving ground. The particular model of the B550 motherboard isn’t referenced however thinking about that they are entirely fair quality which pretty much matches the X570 features including the PCI-E 4.0 interface, it won’t be a noteworthy issue here. The memory side saw the utilization of DDR4-4000 (15-15-16-36) on the Z490 (Intel) side and DDR4-3600 (15-16-16-28) on the AMD side. The GPU utilized for comparison was an RX 5600 XT 6 GB and cooling was given through an EKWB Ultra AIO 360 huge water-cooling attachment.

It was accounted by Teclab that the Ryzen 5 3600XT had a maximum single-core boost record of 4.5 GHz yet arrived at the midpoint of around 4.1-4.3 GHz in gaming titles while the all cores burden reading was 4.2 GHz during the tests.

The 10400 was 15% inferior than the Ryzen 5 3600 in terms of speed, and that doesn’t look good for the Intel processors application performance. Besides, it was 14% better than the Ryzen 5 1600 AF, but the competition isn’t fair with the price tag of around $110 for AMD first-gen Ryzen CPU.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT V/s Intel Core i5-10400 1080p Gaming Benchmarks:

Game Title **Intel Core i5-10400 (Avg FPS) **AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (Avg FPS)
World War Z (Vulkan) 162 FPS 160 FPS
CS:GO 349.56 FPS 351.49 FPS
Shadow of The Tomb Raider (DX12) 116 FPS 115 FPS
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint (Vulkan) 129 FPS 126 FPS
Metro Exodus (DX12) 74.34 FPS 73.29 FPS
Rainbow Six Siege 307 FPS 303 FPS
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey 78 FPS 81 FPS
Borderlands 3 (DX12) 82.46 FPS 79.64 FPS

In CS:GO (1080p), the Ryzen 5 3600XT dealt with a little lead of 351.49 FPS versus 349.56 FPS for the Core i5-10400. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider (1080p DX12), the Ryzen 5 3600XT scored 115 normal FPS versus 116 FPS on the Core i5-10400.

In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: BreakPoint where the Ryzen 5 3600XT scored 126 FPS under 1080p with Vulkan API while the Core i5-10400 held a lead of 3 FPS with 129 FPS. The two CPUs held 60 FPS least framerate yet the Core i5-10400 dealt with a higher max framerate of 192 FPS. Metro Exodus (1080p DX12) saw the Core i5-10400 holding its lead with 74.34 FPS while the Ryzen 5 3600XT wasn’t a long way behind with 73.29 FPS.

Hence the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT proves to be a cheaper yet better option to tackle Intel’s latest-gen mid-range processor.
