Debuted in mid-July, the processor AMD Ryzen 5 3400G was initially positioned by the manufacturer as one of the acceptable options for gaming machines. Editors portal Vortez decided to compare the performance of the chip with the "heavyweight" Intel Core i9-9900K — and the result was very unexpected.
The configuration of the test platform AMD:
- Motherboard: ASRock X570 Taichi
- RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhz
- Video card: Radeon RX 480 8GB
- Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock 4
- Memory: Corsair LX 512GB SSD
- Power supply: Corsair RM 1000 80 Plus Gold Certified
Although AMD Ryzen 5 3400G costs less than many flagship solutions, the published test results showed impressive CPU performance. In the "competition" with the Intel Core i9 9900K, while maintaining the rest of the configuration, the "red" CPU took the lead in almost all trials.
In the game Rise of the Tomb Raider, launched in the resolution of 1920x1080, the test platform based on the new AMD demonstrated a stable 84 frames per second against 80 at the Assembly on Intel. In Total War: Warhammer advantage was again on the side of AMD: 76 against 68 frames per second. When testing the read/write speed in memory, the winner was also Ryzen: 43 895 MB/s and 46 280 MB/s, respectively, while the Core i9-9900K showed a result of 43 767 and 45 641 MB/s.
Another test conducted by the portal compared the performance of processors when processing scenarios in virtual reality. The difference was small, but the winner was again AMD model: 6870 against 6787 points from Intel. It is noteworthy that the price of Ryzen 5 3400G with a complete cooler is much lower than that of Intel Core i9-9900K even in the OEM version.
It is worth noting that the reliability of the published screenshots has not yet been confirmed. The source also does not provide the test configuration of the second test participant — the actual performance difference between the specified models may vary depending on the components of the Assembly.
