AMD Ryzen 5000 processors start shipping next week, and many users are looking forward to it. However, it is believed that the current Intel CPUs are not worse than the Ryzen 5000, and there are even arguments in favor of this. Although not everyone may agree with them, it is still worth considering.
A well-known insider compared the cost of one core of a 10-core Core i9-10900K processor and the flagship of the Ryzen 5000 line, the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X. If we operate with the official price for the US market, then the advantage is on the side of the Intel CPU with a difference of … $ 1: $ 49 for the Core i9-10900K core versus $ 50 for the Ryzen 9 5950X core.
i9-10900K 10 core 488$ (49$/1 core) = Premium price
R9-5950X 16 core 799$ (50$/1 core) = Pricey

In another post, the insider cited a link to a comparison of the performance of the Core i9-10900K and Ryzen 9 5950X in UserBenchmark. And it is not in favor of the AMD processor! Look at the results below: although they are generally close, when considering performance at standard frequencies, the Core i9-10900K outperforms the Ryzen 9 5950X by … 1%. If we consider the difference in performance with overclocking, then the advantage on the side of the Core i9-10900K is already 8%. However, it should be noted that the rating values change with overclocking (naturally, upwards) for some reason only in the Core i9-10900K …
In general, such a comparison is a good example of how easy it is to manipulate data and wishful thinking. Regardless of the core cost estimate (go and buy a processor at the manufacturer’s stated price – now such a rarity even in the US), it is clear that the difference between the Ryzen 9 5950X and the Core i9-10900K is much greater. You might think that after the start of sales of the Ryzen 9 5950X, the UserBenchmark test data will be adjusted to reflect the real state of affairs.
