AMD Ryzen 5 3600 OC’d vs Intel Core i9-9900K under Single Core Test

We’ve been seeing a lot of Zen 2 benchmarks lately, with pretty much all of them decimating their Intel competitors. We saw the Ryzen 5 3600 beating the Core i7-9700K, the Ryzen 7 3800X surpassing the Core i9-9900K, and last but not the least, the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X became the fastest processor on Geekbench.

But what if even Ryzen 5 defeats Intel Core i9-9900K?

It is tough to believe, isn’t it? Still, it comes on top check for yourself.

Overclocked Ryzen 5 3600

  • Single-Core score – 6440.
  • Multi-Core score – 32912.

System Info

  • Operating System – Linux 5.1.7- Default x86_64.
  • Model – Micro-star International Co. Ltd. MS-7B79.
  • Motherboard – X470 Gaming Plus MS-7B79.
  • Memory – 16043 Mb.
  • BIOS – American Megatrends Inc.

Processor

  • Topology – 1 processor, 6 cores, 12 threads.
  • Base frequency – 3.60 Hz.
  • Instruction Cache – 32 Kb x 6.
  • Data cache – 32 Kb x 6.

*terms and conditions apply

You can overclock a Core i9-9900K and get a notably higher score using LN2 and one of those expensive motherboards, but you are still looking at more than twice the investment for just the processor.

Price = 200$

Intel Core i9-9900K

  • Single-Core score – 6212.
  • Multi-Core score – 34040.

System Info

  • Operating System – Intel Core i9-9900K
  • Package – Socket 1151 LGA.

Processor

  • Topology – 1 processor, 6 cores, 12 threads.
  • Frequency – 3600 MHz.
  • Cores – 8
  • GPU – Intel UHD graphics 360.
  • TDP – 95W.

*terms and conditions apply

The AMD setup has a default TDP rating of 65W while the Coffee Lake flagship draws 95W and is known to run hot. Furthermore, you’re also required to buy the heat-sink separately, so add another $35-50 (at the very least) to the blue setup. The Zen and Zen+ lineups might have been disruptive, forcing Intel to play nice, but the 7nm Zen 2 is aiming to bring it down.

You can get a 3600 for just $200 plus an X470 motherboard should do just fine. Pair it with fast DDR4 memory and you’ve got yourself a PC that beats an Intel system costing twice as much.
