    AMD Ryzen 5 3600 ($199) Beats Intel’s Core i7-9700K ($374) in Cinebench

    AMD’s Ryzen 3000 CPUs continue to break records even a whole month after launch. We’re seeing $200 AMD chips beat Intel’s processors that cost almost twice as much. This is thanks to the impressive IPC gains that come with the Zen 2 architecture as well as TSMC’s 7nm node that is considerably more efficient compared to the preceding 14 and 12nm processes. We already know that the mid-range Ryzen 5 3600 will be one of the most popular CPUs in the coming months with performance much higher than Intel’s competing Coffee Lake-based i5s. However, according to a Cinebench score shared by Videocardz on Twitter, the 3600 levels with the Core i7-9700K in the multi-threaded (correction) test.

    The Intel Core i7-9700K nets 1451 points while the Zen 2 based Ryzen 5 is appreciably faster with 1561. The 3600 is inches away from the higher clocked i7-8700K which yields 1578 points in the MC test. This means that the Ryzen 3000 series indeed have comparable IPCs to the Intel Coffee Lake lineups, if not higher, as both the chips are running at similar frequencies.

    Now, let’s have a look at the multi-threaded test in R20 (correction). The Ryzen 5 3600 manages to achieve the fifth rank in the top ten CPU chart, trailing behind the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Threadripper 1950X. It’s quite a bit faster than the older i7s (7700K, 6700K) and should perform similar to the 9th Gen i7s in multi-threaded workloads.

    These results once again highlight why AMD is chipping away at Intel’s market share both in the consumer as well as the server market. You’ve got a $200 Ryzen 5 beating a $384 Intel i5 and performing similar to the 8th Gen i7. I expect team blue to issue price cuts all across the board once the Ryzen 3000 lineup lands as with the current price tags, it’s really hard to recommend even the fastest Intel processors.

        • I think you are mistaken. If it is single core, it will be indicated specifically. The R15 being shown is a multi-core test. The R20 is a totally different benchmark and cannot be correlated with the R15 version.

    1. Yo, where’s the ss of the benchmark where 3600 scores 1561, I mean it’s not that I do don’t trust you. I just wanna have it.
