These days it’s all about Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 CPUs or the
AMD Ryzen 3000 Physics Scores (Firestrike):
- 3900X: 28500-30000
- 3700X: 24000-25000
- 3600X: 20XXX
- 3600: 19000-19900
As you can see, the Ryzen 9 3900X is unbeatable with a score of approximately 30K. Its closest competitor is AMD’s own Threadripper 2 2950X that comes with 16 cores and 32 threads. Intel’s octa-core Core i9-9900K is the top-scored mainstream processor with approximately 25K points. It directly competes with the Ryzen 7 3700X while it should be going head to head against the $499 3900X but oh well it’s not really surprising considering recent trends.
The Ryzen 5 3600 clearly beats the Core i7-9700K (18.9K) with 19K points while the 3600X is just a notch above. This is one of the benchmarks where the i5s are completely out of the picture and even the existing Zen+ CPUs are able to beat them quite easily. However, in real-world scenarios, physics isn’t that intensely used so I suppose Intel can get away with this.
