The tests that included three Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 processors in a fight against the Intel Core i9-10900K, both parties using 16 GB of memory and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card revealed what we already knew: Intel needs to worry and — more important — hurry up with the release of its next-gen processors.

Expected to launch later today, the AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 desktop processors are already making waves thanks to YouTuber Pichau. Earlier today, he published a video that shows an epic battle between the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5600X, 5800X, and 5900X with a single Comet Lake opponent, namely the Intel Core i9-10900K. The results? Not quite surprising based on what we have seen in recent rumors and leaks, great news for AMD and its fans, as well as bad news for Intel.

The test platform used a 1 TB SSD, 16 GB DDR4-3600 MHz memory, a GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. The motherboards employed used B550 and Z490 chipsets. In most titles, all AMD Ryzen 5000 processors were able to beat the Intel Core i9-10900K even at stock speeds vs. the 5 GHz Intel chip. The games where Intel's chip was able to come out on top and beat all AMD processors are GTA V, Strange Brigade, and Red Dead Redemption II.

To sum it all in just four lines, I will quote the results of the 15-game average for the stock Ryzen 5900X and 5600X and the numbers produced by Intel's chip (average FPS, 1% low FPS, average, 1% low):

  • Ryzen 5900X: 184, 103, 107%, 101%
  • Ryzen 5600X: 181, 100, 105%, 98%
  • Core i9-10900K: 172, 102, 100%, 100%
  • Core i9-10900K (5 GHz OC): 177, 102, 103%, 100%

These being said, we should get ready for the assault of the post-release reviews which will surely reveal more interesting figures — and reasons to get a Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 processor, probably.

Last-minute edit: It looks like the video has been removed, probably due to NDA infringement.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
