AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs absolutely obliterates Intel processors in one-sided workstation test (Techradar)

In the Puget Systems tests, the Ryzen 5000 easily out-paced similarly priced processors from Intel, all across the board.

Of particular note is the performance of the Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X that out-performed the Intel X-Series CPUs by about 40%.

In several tests, even Ryzen 5000 processors on the lower end of the scale, the 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X, topped the similarly-priced Intel Core i5 10600K and Core i9 10900K by around 10%. However, the Ryzen 7 5800X was second best to the Intel Core i9 10900K in some applications, and even then not by much.
In short, in virtually all the tests, the closest competitor to a AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor was another processor from the same series. It’s no surprise then that Puget Systems is considering moving a significant number of their rigs to the AMD Ryzen 5000 series.

Essentially AMD is out-performing Intel in performance and cost across many benchmark sites and software testing. Linus Tech Tips does a AAA title game comparison along with some internal comparisons that are going to blow you away. We stay committed to bring in more AMD to start the new year so heads up and watch to see an uptick in AMD diversity among the LEGION product line. 

Good Review of Intel vs NEW Ryzen Source:

  • It's hard to argue that AMD is absolutely crushing it right now, and not just on the CPU side anymore either. Awesome to hear that we're bringing in more AMD stuff, that's been a huge request from community (understandably so). Definitely want to try some benchmarking on some of those systems soon!

  • Hopefully we will see a good back and forth between Intel and AMD for the next few years. Both Intel and Nvidia have needed some good competition for a while now.  Exciting times for sure. Slight smile

  • Maybe but I dont see Intel coming down in cost anytime soon. They still own like so much of the market. AMD took a great first step from what I read (havent experienced) but Intel has that worldwide market on lock. 

  • Perhaps we could see some Legion towers feature this technology?

  • Soon... very soon 

  • Dropping the insider info here Open mouth

  • yup, and intel still has that perception of value over AMD for a lot of more mainstream customers. I think that "gamers" are seeing through the blue cloud to the other side.
