Game Benchmarks Show AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Holding Its Own Against Intel Core i9-9900K

Previously, we reported about the Ryzen 5 3600 being on par with the Intel Core i9-9900K. That was mostly on synthetic benchmarks but now, we have seen more game benchmarks popped up with CPUs and the result is absolutely unbelievable.

In 1440p and 4K gaming, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is on par with the Intel Core i9-9900K in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy XV. The Ryzen 5 3600X and the 3600 even has it beat on a number of occasions. All three processors are benched with the AMD Radeon VII and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Apart from that, they use one kit of RAM for all setups (16GB Vulcan Z DDR4 3200 MHz kit) with XMP enabled.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider 1440p / 4K Final Fantasy XV 1440p / 4K
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 / Radeon VII  93 FPS / 52 FPS 7030 Points / 4205 Points
AMD Ryzen 5 3600X / Radeon VII  94 FPS / 58 FPS 7418 Points / 4300 Points
Intel Core i9-9900K / Radeon VII  93 FPS / 53 FPS 7150 Points / 4183 Points
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 / RTX 2080 Ti  117 FPS / 81 FPS 10447 Points / 6219 Points
AMD Ryzen 5 3600X / RTX 2080 Ti  117 FPS / 81 FPS 10221 Points / 6171 Points
Intel Core i9-9900K / RTX 2080 Ti 116 FPS / 76 FPS 10304 Points / 6139 Points


The benchmark was done by YouTuber Gear Seekers, which we’ve included the video at the top of this post. As you can see, the result is fascinating. While the difference isn’t much in 1440p, there’s a notable difference when it jumps to 4K. You’d think that Intel would have the upper hand in most areas but clearly, that’s not the case here.

Given how affordable the Ryzen 5 3600 and 3600X is compared to the Intel Core i9-9900K, it’s generally an easy decision for consumers. However, results may still differ in different setups and different games. It’s interesting given that the i9-9900K is an 8-core / 16 thread CPU while the two Ryzen CPUs here are on 6-core / 12 threads. It’s worth noting that the Ryzen has double the cache (32MB) of the i9-9900K (16MB) however.

We at Pokde.net might be doing a similar benchmark test in the future, so be sure to stay tuned for that.

Pokdepinion: Intel gotta have some sort of counter strategy for this because otherwise, things aren’t looking too good.
