AMD’s Ryzen 3000 CPUs are expected to be faster than Intel’s Coffee Lake lineup in almost all kinds of workloads, right from content creation, to gaming, be it a single-threaded or multi-threaded application. Yesterday, we shared the Userbenchmark of the hex-core Ryzen 5 3600, and in it, the Zen 2 chip quite comfortable beats the Intel Core i5-9400 and that too by a rather considerable margin in the multi-threaded test. Today, we have the Geekbench score of the same processor and if this result is anything to go by, then the Ryzen 3000 lineup will indeed stir up the consumer CPU market.
The Ryzen 5 3600 scores 5,358 points in the single-core test and 27,485 in the multi-core bench. This puts the 3600 ahead of both the Ryzen 7 2700X as well as the Threadripper 1920X. Although the Coffee Lake–based Core i7-8700K due to its high operating speed is a bit faster in the single-core segment, the hex-core Zen 2 part makes up for that by winning the multi-core bench.
I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
