A Very early evaluation of AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 has actually dripped and shows the CPU exceeding Ryzen 7 2700X in several benchmarks and lagging only somewhat behind Intel’s ninth-generation Core i9 in efficiency work.
Spain-based technology examines site El Chapuzas Informatico put the most recent AMD CPU to the examination versus the Ryzen 7 and an Intel Core i9-9900K and located it running between the two as well as even beating both sometimes. This appears to validate a previous leak we reported on at the start of the month.
With G.Skill FlareX [email protected] MHz and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition GPU, the Ryzen 5 3600 was set up on a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi motherboard. In Cinebench R15 as well as R20 runs, the Ryzen 5 3600 defeated the Zen+ based 2700X in single-core performance. It did not fair too for multi-core, but that is no surprise considering it is 6-core/12-thread versus 8C/16T.
Despite a higher memory latency of 80.5 ns, the Ryzen 5’s performance was not interfered with to a substantial degree. For example, in wPrime 2.10 32M, the 3600 nearly equaled the Core i9-9900K falling just somewhat behind. It was much faster than previous generation CPUs consisting of Intel Core i7-8700K, 8600K, and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and also 1700X. In the multi-core wPrime tests, the Ryzen 7 2700X somewhat exceeded its next-gen counterpart.
It was kept in mind that the Ryzen 5’s memory writes rate was uncommonly low. It just struck 25.6 GB/s, while the 2700X, as well as 1700X, were over 47GB/s. “However this could be because of the motherboard being used or perhaps a problem with below timings on the memory, something that will need to be verified in future reviews,” TechPowerUp figures out.
In conclusion, AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 cannot stay up to date with the ninth-generation Intel Core processor, but it didn’t lag far behind. As gains against previous AMD offerings, the 3600 revealed it is a step up, generally, particularly considering its reduced clock speed as well as fewer cores/threads.
For an MSRP of $200, the Ryzen 5 3600 must make a good selection for mid-range video gaming gears, specifically if it overclocks well. El Chapuzas Informático got some video gaming benchmarks for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Final Fantasy XV and Far Cry 5 and also Total War: Warhammer 2 if you’re interested in those. The 3600 was run behind the Core i9-9900K in all of those.
Similar to all unofficial news, resist your enjoyment till something extra concrete comes out. AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 drops on July 7, and also you can bet we’ll have our full testimonial ready in due time.
