We will not paint detailed reviews for all models, we will try to limit ourselves only to the most popular model or the “popular” AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, the first review of which was published by the Polish ITHardware resource.
Is Ryzen 5 better than i5?
There is no unequivocal answer, since each line of processors must be compared separately. We tried to select videos for some that might be interesting.
Is Ryzen 5 Good enough?
It all depends on the goals. AMD has more cores so they are great for video editing, video graphics, 3D graphics, drawing and picture processing. AMD is cheaper in price than Intel.
AMD Ryzen 5 3500U vs Intel i5-10210U Processors Comparision
It cannot be said for sure that the resource had at least one copy of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, since there is not a single real photo of the processor in the review. Hopefully the review is not implausible or misleading.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X desktop processor is based on the Zen 3 microarchitecture, has 6 physical cores, 12 logical threads, base and maximum clock speeds of 3.7-4.6 GHz, 32 MB L3 cache and a 65W thermal package. At the moment, the processor competes with the models of the competitor Intel Core i5-10400 / 10600K.
Synthetics first. The Cinebench R20 benchmark estimated the single-threaded and multi-threaded performance of the new product at 600 and 4521 points, respectively, which is 17% and 21% more than the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X.
If you wish, you can look at many other synthetic benchmarks. Immediately after them, let’s move on to game tests.
In gaming, AMD Ryzen 5 5600X was tested in conjunction with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. The test results show that the performance of the new product significantly exceeds the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X and periodically overclocks the Intel Core i9-10850K, overclocked to 5.2 GHz.
The new microarchitecture and polished 7nm manufacturing process have significantly reduced temperature and power consumption. A Noctua NH-D14 tower cooler was used to cool the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. As the observer assures, in the stock state, the processor is able to heat up to 62 ° C, which is 14 ° C lower than the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. In overclocking, both processors show approximately the same temperature, but the clock frequency of the new product is 600 MHz higher.
It remains to look at the power consumption. The stock AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in the LinX 0.6.5 stress test consumes not the declared 65 W, but 157 W, which is almost 100 W higher than the value indicated in the passport. In overclocking, power consumption rises to 203 W and almost reaches the level of Intel Core i9-10850K.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X benchmark showed that the new line of processors received a significant increase in performance, not only on paper, but also in practice. The difference compared to the previous generation reaches an impressive 26%, but still depends on the specific application.
