AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT Leaks Appear Online

It appears that we now have some solid information on what we can expect from the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT. A recent set of leaks from Teclab gives us an idea of the levels of performance we can expect in major titles.

The Ryzen 5 3600XT is part of the Matisse refresh which is due to be launched on July 7th. These updated CPUs will offer higher boost clocks than the existing Ryzen 3000 series chips. The Ryzen 5 3600XT, in particular, will offer a 3.8 GHz base clock and up to a 4.5 GHz boost clock speed.

What Can We See From These Benchmarks?

These benchmarks mainly compare the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT against the Intel Core i5-10400. At first glance, this doesn’t seem to be the fairest of tests as the Core i5-10400 likely won’t be the ideal competitor as it is currently priced around $60 less than the 3600XT. The main comparison will be just how well Intel’s 6 core offerings compete with AMD’s this time around.

The benchmarks ran using a B550 motherboard for the Ryzen 5 3600XT and a Z490 motherboard for the Intel Core i5-10400. There is a bit of disparity when it comes to the memory used though, the AMD platform used DDR4-3600 memory whereas the Intel platform used DDR4-4000. In both cases, the graphics card of choice was an RX 5600 XT 6 GB.

The results for the Ryzen 5 3600XT showed a max single-core boost of 4.5 GHz with an average of around 4.1 – 4.3 GHz. When it comes to gaming performance, a number of games were tested and the results were fairly close.

Moving on to the benchmarks, there isn’t too much of a difference between both of these processors. In this test, Intel manages to stay on top when it comes to average FPS, but we’ll likely know more when the Ryzen 5 3600XT actually releases.

The full list on benchmarks can be seen below:

GameAMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (Average FPS)Intel Core i5-10400 (Average FPS)
World War Z160162
Metro Exodus73.2974.34
Rainbow Six Siege303307
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey8178
Shadow of The Tomb Raider115116
Borderlands 379.6482.46
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint126129

We can see from the table that there isn’t too much separating these two CPUs. We’ve highlighted the winners in bold, but the victories seem to only be around 3 FPS either way. Of course, for the price of the Ryzen 5 3600XT we’d have hoped for a bit better, but there’s always overclocking to consider. Also, it’s important to consider whether the multithreading benefits outweigh this slight loss if gaming isn’t the primary concern.

The Ryzen 5 3600XT is set to retail at $249, which puts it around the same price as the Ryzen 5 3600X (although you can usually find this at a discount). This equates to around a $40 markup for an extra 100 MHz boost. For a chip intended to be a mainstream product for gaming builds, it will be interesting to see just how well it performs.

What do you think of these benchmarks? Would this influence your decision when looking for a new processor or do the multithreaded benefits that AMD brings outweigh the losses? Let us know down in the comments below.
