AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Benchmarked Slaughters Intel Core i5-10600K

For those think that only the high-end Ryzen 5000 series can compete against Intel … think again. Their “mainstream” Ryzen 5 5600X processor just slaughtered the Intel Core i5-10600K. Thank you AMD!

Taken from Tom’s Hardware… After previously sharing benchmark results for the Ryzen 9 5950X@Tum_Apisak has done it again. This time around, the chip detective uncovered submissions for the Ryzen 5 5600X, which will likely battle it out with Intel’s Core i5-10600K.

Here’s literally everything we know about the Ryzen 5000 series, both official and unofficial, but for a bit of a quick introduction, the Ryzen 5 5600X comes wielding six Zen 3 cores with 12 threads, 32MB of L3 cache, and base and boost clock speeds of 3.7 GHz and 4.6 GHz, respectively. The Core i5-10600K, which also has a six-core, 12-thread design, has 12MB of L3 cache and features a 4.1 GHz base clock and 4.8 GHz boost clock.

The Core i5-10600K clearly boasts higher boost clocks and a more generous thermal limit. Intel’s contender conforms to a 125W TDP (thermal design power) rating, while the Ryzen 5 5600X is rated for 65W. Theoretically, the Core i5-10600K should be faster since it has more breathing room to execute. However, the Ryzen 5 5600X leverages AMD’s groundbreaking Zen 3 microarchitecture, so don’t count the Ryzen 5 5600X out just yet.

The SiSoftware Sandra submissions show the Ryzen 5 5600X hauling in Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multi-Media scores of 255.22 GOPS and 904.38 Mpix/s, respectively. The average scores for the Core i5-10600K are 224.07 GOPS and 662.33 Mpix/s. That means the Ryzen 5 5600X outperformed the Core i5-10600K by 13.9% and 36.5%, respectively.
