The Ryzen 5000 will still compete with Alder Lake. Ryzen 5 5600X Up to 10% Faster than Core i5-12600K in Esports

Published

When Intel introduced Alder Lake processors, it was said about the superiority of new products over Ryzen 5000 processors in games by about 15%. However, that calculation, firstly, was performed incorrectly, and secondly, the flagships were compared. The mid-range Ryzen 5 5600X and Core i5-12600K benchmark scores have now surfaced in eSports. And the advantage here is not on the side of the Alder Lake CPUs.

The processors were tested in six games: CS: GO, Overwatch, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Apex Legends, Valorant, and Call of Duty: Warzone. At Full HD resolution in one of them (Overwatch) the result is equal, in the other three the Ryzen 5 5600X leads. And if you look at the percentage, the Ryzen 5 5600X in these three games is much faster than the Core i5-12600K, while the advantage of the Core i5-12600K in the two remaining games does not exceed 2.1%. On average, the Ryzen 5 5600X is 7.5% faster.

Games / Processor Core i9-12900K Ryzen 9 5950X Core i5-12600K Ryzen 5 5600X
CS: GO 749 670 654 642 (-1.8%)
Overwatch 399 399 399 399
Tom clancy’s rainbow six siege 485 470 451 463 (+ 2.7%)
Apex legends 276 278 280 274 (-2.1%)
Valorant 791 780 592 782 (+ 32%)
Call of Duty: Warzone 215 190 186 195 (+ 4.8%)
Average 486 466 (-4.1%) 427 459 (+ 7.5%)
Games / Processor Core i9-12900K Ryzen 9 5950X Core i5-12600K Ryzen 5 5600X
CS: GO 579 575 540 569 (+ 5.4%)
Overwatch 314 308 311 307 (-1.3%)
Tom clancy’s rainbow six siege 381 353 360 354 (-1.7%)
Apex legends 238 242 246 239 (-2.8%)
Valorant 758 783 591 782 (+ 32.3%)
Call of Duty: Warzone 205 195 182 190 (+ 4.4%)
Average 413 409 (-1%) 372 407 (+ 9.4%)

At 1440p, the picture does not fundamentally change: the Core i5-12600K is slightly faster in Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch and Apex Legends, while the Ryzen 5 5600X is noticeably faster in Warzone, Valorant, and CS: GO. The advantage of the AMD processor here is already 9.4%.

So for games, the Ryzen 5 5600X is no worse than a competitor, while there is no need to change the cooling system and buy a motherboard on a new chipset. Interestingly, the top-end Core i9-12900K is not much faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X. About 15% is out of the question: an average of 4.1% at Full HD resolution and only 1% at 1440p.

Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman spoke about the new Apple M2

Earlier this month, Apple announced the new M2 processor at the WWDC presentation. It is used in the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, but Cupertino is said to be preparing several modifications of it. Apple is said to be preparing M2 Pro, M2 Max, M2 Ultra, and M2 Extreme processors for Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro devices.

Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman said that Mac mini computers will receive options with M2 and M2 Pro processors. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops will feature the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. An entry-level 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip is also expected. Their release date is unknown.

Finally, Gurman believes that Apple plans to introduce the M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme chips. The company has previously hinted that the Mac Pro could be released soon, but no further details have been released. Perhaps these processors are just intended for the Mac Pro.

The timing of the announcement and release of the most powerful PC from Apple has not yet been specified.

Previously, Gurman said that the MacBook Air (2022) will be released in the colors of older models.

Valve Specialist Explains Why You Shouldn’t Install Too Long SSDs in Steam Deck

Valve Specialist Explains Why You Shouldnt Install Too Long SSDs

A few days ago, information appeared on the network that it was possible to install a longer SSD in the Steam Deck than planned. However, such interference may adversely affect the life of the console.

Valve Specialist Explains Why You Shouldn't Install Too Long SSDs in Steam Deck

By default, the Steam Deck uses a 30mm SSD, however, players were able to install a 42mm long model with more memory. To do this, I had to move the fixing screw on the motherboard and remove the thermal pad.

According to Valve designer Lawrence Young, who participated in the development of the console, this should not be done. The fact is that larger drives consume more energy and heat up more. And ditching the thermal pad makes things even worse as the console starts to overheat.

Please, do not do that. The charger chip becomes very hot, so do not move nearby thermal pads. In addition, most M.2 2242 drives use more power and run hotter than the ones the Steam Deck is designed to handle. It may seem that this modification works, but it will significantly reduce the life of your portable PC.‘, Young said.

Note that the console officially supports three SSD options – 64 GB, 256 GB and a faster 512 GB.

Previously, it was reported how you can significantly increase the autonomy of the Steam Deck console.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics

Rumors are actively attributing huge power consumption up to 600 W and even higher to GeForce RTX 40 video cards. Radeon RX 7000 cards will also consume more than the current generation.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

AMD Senior Vice President Sam Naffziger revealed some details about the RDNA 3 architecture and products based on it. He also touched upon the topic of energy consumption.

The demand for gaming and computing performance is increasing, while at the same time the development of technical processes is slowing down quite sharply. Thus, the power level will only increase. We now have a multi-year roadmap with very significant energy efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there.

Performance is critical, but even if our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean we won’t raise power levels if competitors are doing the same. They’ll just have to raise them much higher than us.

Thus, the Radeon RX 7000 line, despite the previously stated 50 percent advantage (over the RX 6000) in power efficiency, will stand out for its high power consumption simply because of the huge performance boost. At the same time, AMD is confident that Nvidia will have to increase power consumption even higher.

For now, the RX 6000 line is more power efficient than the GeForce RTX 30, although the difference isn’t huge. Previously, there were rumors that the top-end RX 7900 XT will consume 450 watts versus 600 watts in the case of the RTX 4090, but so far these are just rumors.
