New UserBenchmark and Cinebench results point to AMD's upcoming Ryzen 5 3600 being nothing short of a price-perfomance superchip
Things are definitely heating up in the CPU benchmark world, especially whenever AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 superchip is around. Although there is a chance the results can be faked or altered (especially in the case of the surprising Cinebench R15 score), the overall evidence still points at the 7nm Zen 2 processor being something of a performance monster.
Looking at the latest UserBenchmark rating for the Ryzen 5 3600, we can see that it has recently moved up the rankings thanks to an average benchmark result of 106%. While this is short of the pricier i7-9700K, if you regress a single Intel generation you can find AMD’s chip snapping at the heels of the i7-8700K, which resides on 108%.
What is even more astounding about the Ryzen 3000 series processor is that it has apparently been measured on UserBenchmark managing an average bench of 110% when paired with an X570 Phantom Gaming X motherboard from ASRock. This score puts it past the Coffee Lake i7-8700K chip and even past 9th Gen processors like the i7-9800X.
In a purported leaked image of a Cinebench R15 run, shared courtesy of Tum Apisak, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 appears to have recorded a single-core score of 197. We already reported on the alleged amazing results of the 7nm processor on both Geekbench and in the Cinebench R15 multi-core test. Now a result of 197 has been found that places the snappy Ryzen 5 3600 in the same region as the aforementioned powerful processors from Intel. All the results could be fakes or forgeries…or perhaps AMD simply has an incredible chip just about to hit the market.
