AMD Ryzen 3rd gen vs Intel Core 10th gen Desktop. Which one to choose, find it out here. Spoiler Alert, its AMD

Almost half a year, AMD released their 3rd gen Zen 2 based desktop chips, and they took the market by storm, there simply thrashed their 9th gen Intel counterparts, and it was sure if you do anything besides gaming then should go for the AMD Ryzen 3000 series chips. And now we have the 10th gen Intel Desktop chips, so let’s see whether it is better or the 3rd gen is still the one to go for.

As there are so many chips, we will use the best one in every series for comparison.

Conclusion

Gaming

  • AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Intel Core i3-10300 : Intel Wins( by a narrow margin)
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600X vs Intel Core i5-10600K : Intel Wins( by a narrow margin)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X vs. Intel Core i7-10700K: Intel Wins( but give that there is a price difference of around $135, you can get a better GPU, which would result in better gaming experience)
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3950X vs. Intel Core i9-10900K: Intel Wins( but give that there is a price difference of around $100, you can get a better GPU, which would result in better gaming experience).

Also, keep in mind the fact that all the AMD Ryzen Processors have an included Air Cooler in the box, which is though not the best, but is still enough for the processor to give out an excellent performance. In contrast, the Intel Core series processors doenst have any type of cooler in the box.

Multi-Threaded Workload(CAM/CAM, Video/Photo Editing, Rendering, etc)

  • AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Intel Core i3-10300 : AMD Wins( by a narrow margin)
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600X vs Intel Core i5-10600K : AMD Wins
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X vs. Intel Core i7-10700K: Intel Wins( but give that there is a price difference of around $135, also you can always get the Ryzen 7 3800X for better performance, which is again cheaper than the Core i7-10700K)
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3950X vs. Intel Core i9-10900K: AMD Wins.
