Intel Core i5-10600 sample manages higher bench result on UserBenchmark than AMD Ryzen 5 3600 despite overall lower test scores
A 6-core, 12-thread Comet Lake processor in the form of the Intel Core i5-10600 has been found on UserBenchmark by Tum Apisak. The single sample was given an “outstanding” bench result of 91.4% and managed a very high 1-core score of 143 points. The i5-10600 was recorded at a base clock of 3.3 GHz and had an average turbo of 4.15 GHz (4.3 GHz expected max.).
One of the rivals for this upcoming desktop processor will be the popular AMD Ryzen 5 3600. However, according to the UserBenchmark bench result, the Matisse chip has a lower performance than the Intel Core i5-10600, resulting in a bench percentage of 87.9%. The Ryzen 5 3600’s result is an average score based on over 216,000 samples tested on the benchmark.
What’s odd about the scores between the Intel Core i5-10600 and AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is that even though the Comet Lake chip scores higher in the 1-core and 4-core tests, the Matisse processor does better in the 2-core, 8-core, and 64-core benchmarks. When you total the points awarded for the normal, heavy, and extreme tests the i5-10600 comes out with 1,780 points and the Ryzen 5 3600 racks up 1,880 points (see table below).
So even though the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 performs better in three out of five CPU tests and has a greater overall score, the Intel Core i5-10600 is awarded the higher benchmark percentage: 91.4% vs. 87.9%. The fact is UserBenchmark awards a much higher percentage of the overall bench to single-core performance, which will generally favor Intel parts. However, to not take too much away from the Comet Lake chip’s performance, the single-core result is impressive and the CPU could be an attractive option for gamers if the price is right.
|Intel Core i5-10600||AMD Ryzen 5 3600|
