New AMD Ryzen 5 3000 Series CPU Benchmarks Leaked Out | 7NM AMD to Beat Intel Coffee Lake in Gaming Benchmarks!
AMD’s Targeting the Gaming Market With their Budget CPUs
Right now AMD’s latest generation of Ryzen CPUs based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture can’t compete with the Intel Coffee Lake CPUs in gaming benchmark. Although AMD Zen 2 is still outselling Intel and delivering better overall performance, Coffee Lake still has the lead in gaming benchmarks across the boards. Well, it seems like AMD CPUs are finally going to overtake Intel’s in gaming benchmarks with the Ryzen 5 3500 series CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X and Ryzen 5 3500 Specs Leaked
Although we haven’t heard any official information about AMD’s budget Zen 2 series CPUs, we have gotten our hands on new leaks. Thanks to slides posted by Twitter user @BullsLab, we have gotten our hands on a specs list for the AMD Ryzen 5 3500 and Ryzen 5 3500X.
According to this leak, the AMD Ryzen 5 3500 is going to feature 6 Cores/6 Threads, a 4.1 GHz boost clock, 16 MB of cache, a TDP of 65W, and a $129 price point. The AMD Ryzen 5 3500X is reportedly going to feature 6 Cores/ 6 Threads, a 4.1 GHz boost clock, 32 MB of cache, a TDP of 65W, and an MSRP of $149.
We have gotten leaked gaming benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 5 3500X and it seems like it’s actually going to be able to match or outperform Intel in gaming. AMD Ryzen has never been able to match or surpass Intel in gaming as Intel CPUs usually feature superior single-core performance. Well, it seems like AMD is going to be targeting the gaming market with the Ryzen 5 3500X as it is able to outperform the I5-9400F in the leaked benchmarks which you can see below.
We are expecting to get about the same level of performance from the Ryzen 5 3500 as it’s specifications are the same as the Ryzen 5 3500X but, the only difference is that it features 16 MB of cache instead of 32 MB. Although the decrease in cache will have some effects on gaming performance, it wouldn’t be too different. With a bit of overclocking gamers may be able to get the same amount of performance as a Ryzen 5 3500X running on stock speed.
