The time has almost come for the highly anticipated Ryzen 3000 series of AMD to hit the market. We are almost exactly a week away until they are launched by the company on July 7th. But leaks have been pouring in from so many corners of the Internet that it is difficult to keep quiet about it until then. And we have got quite a lot of news for you.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Dominated Intel i9 9900K In Term Of Single-Threaded Performance is where the leak came from. The database was marked in crystal clear name being at the head of every CPU models currently on the market in term of single-threaded performance. This means Intel’s flagship, the i9 9900K was also sorely beaten by the R5 3600 in their test.

But that is not the shocking news. The thing is that the R5 3600 is AMD’s entry-level CPU at a mere $199. Already it has already given the highest clocked and the highest in the CPU food-chain in term of single-threaded performance a run for its $489 price tag.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Also Got Ahead Of Intel i7 9700K In Multi-Thread Performance

Even when the R5 3600 multi-thread performance is lower than the 9900K, it is still quite impressive that the R5 3600 was brushing closely the score of the 8 core, 16 thread 9900K itself. Meanwhile, the new 3600 showed itself having more than enough power to manhandle the 8 core, 8 thread i7 9700K out of its position as being one of the highest multi-thread performing CPU.

However, it is critical for us to keep in mind that the figures of the R5 3600 was based on as little as three trial runs of the CPU. And we don’t even know if they overclocked it or not when pitching it against the Intel models. Passmark also has benchmark leaderboards similar to, however, in their list of overclocked CPU performance leaderboard, the R5 3600 was not listed. Therefore, the figures we have all seen on might be all about stock and clocked R5 3600.

Currently there is no way for us to verify the authenticity of these tests until we have an actual R5 3600 in our testing rig and tried it out ourselves.

The $199 Will Be Loved For Sure

But no matter how you spin the numbers, these are some results worth being excited for. Even when it is the results of an overclocked Ryzen 5 3600, that’s still mightily impressive that an entry-level is able to catch up with the best models Intel could offer. Never I would have thought that there would be a day when I get to write that an AMD CPU actually outperformed an Intel’s CPU. And even more improbably was an AMD CPU outperformed Intel’s fastest single-thread performing chip.

Whether the new chip can meet up with all these high expectations will remain a secret until its release in July 7th.
