We’ve already seen tons of Cinebench and Geekbench scores of the Ryzen 5 3600, but we’ve yet to see any PassMark benchmarks. That changes now. Our trusty Twitter detectives have shared one of the first PassMark scores of the 3600 and we compared it to Intel’s competing Core i5-9600K and found that it was nearly twice as fast, beating the Coffee Lake part in both the single-threaded as well as the multi-threaded benchmarks. So, we went ahead and compared it to the Intel consumer flagship, the Core i9-9900K and found that both the chips perform almost similar in this test.
As you can see, in the overall score, the Ryzen 5 3600 is only behind the i9-9900K and not by much. It easily beats the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Core i7-8700K and turns out to be almost twice as fast compared to the Core i5-9600K. Moving to the single-threaded test, the Ryzen 5 gains the first spot beating the Core i9-9900K, the 9600K as well as the 8700K. This is rather significant and highlights the kind of improvements AMD has made with Zen 2 with regard to IPC.
Another point worth noting here is that Intel Core i5-9600K is the best value for money CPU here and it gets beaten by a huge margin (with a lesser price) by the 3600. The Ryzen 3000 chips are seriously going to shake things up in the consumer processor space.
