Intel i5-11600K vs AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in Gaming

3DMARK: Time Spy

Time Spy is an excellent demonstration of GPU limits. Once you reach a certain level of CPU score, 4000 points plus, there isn't much extra performance to be gained and it's down to the GPU to do the rest. Which is exactly why you should spend your budget for a gaming rig on a better graphics card instead of a better CPU.

Great write up Guv, So good to see AMD competing this well, I still remember your first Ryzen video you did a couple of years ago and those little white box things in the video "OC3D Loves Ryzen" Quote

Why no Cyberpunk 2077 benchmark?


I didn't know Intel i5 performed that well, and much cheaper than Ryzen 5. Other than replacing a Ryzen 2000 and keeping your motherboard, I would say Intel is the way to go for a new build.Quote

I'm not sure why Tom didn't, but I think it came down to timing.

In my analysis pieces on Cyberpunk, I used a different area for CPU and GPU tests. Our typical test area for the game is not that CPU-heavy, making it useless for CPU-focused performance testing.

Finding a new benchmark area for this one article would have added a lot of work to an already time-intensive testing scenario.

The new i5 does offer a lot of value for gamers. TBH I'm not sure if I'd go AMD or Intel this gen if I was making a gaming system. Both are great options and both are on what appear to be dead-end CPU sockets. DDR5 is coming, and that means that both camps will be using new CPU sockets soon.Quote

Many people say this regarding DDR5 etc, but many don't keep in mind that we don't know when they might actually drop. And when they do, they will most likely cost a lot - just for the memory alone.Quote

Yes, but what I was getting at with my comment was the fact that buyers of these platforms shouldn't expect any CPU upgrade options outside of what is currently available. Zen 4 shouldn't work on today's AM4 motherboards, and Alder Lake upgrades for LGA 1200 won't happen either.Quote
