AMD Ryzen 5 5600 Vs Intel Core i5-12400F Benchmark Test

With the send-off of the Ryzen 5 5600, AMD's at long last cut down the cost of Zen 3 to simply $200. In dropping the X, AMD additionally thumped 200 MHz off the lift clock, so as things stand today, the 5600X is valued at $230 and the more current non-X form comes in at $200 MSRP, which is 13% off.

On the Intel front, the Core i5-12400F at present retails for $180, so it's less expensive than the 5600, yet we'll investigate motherboard valuing towards the finish of this GPU scaling benchmark test.

Presently, because the 5600 is an opened CPU, it ought to have the option to accomplish 5600X-like execution through overclocking, and we're just discussing a 5% contrast in clock recurrence out of the crate in any case. All things considered, we will not be investigating overclocking in this survey. 

The thought here is to think about the Ryzen 5 5600 and Core i5-12400F across a scope of games at 1080p and 1440p utilizing four levels of GPU.

To keep things basic, we've gone with the GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070, RTX 3080 12GB, and RTX 3090 Ti. 

The two CPUs have been tried in their stock setup with the main exemptions of XMP, which has been stacked, and we've empowered Resizable BAR on the two stages. Besides, a similar 32GB of DDR4-3200 CL14 double position memory has been utilized for the two stages, and precisely the same illustration cards were utilized. We should now get into the outcomes...

Beginning with God of War at 1080p, we observe that the two CPUs empower a similar degree of execution with each of the four GeForce GPUs. The game has a 160 fps outline cap and this was arrived at utilizing the RTX 3070 and up, while the RTX 3060 was really great for around 100 fps, and this was with the best settings empowered, so this is a very much improved title that looks astonishing.

Next, we have Cyberpunk 2077. The Core i5 partakes in a slight execution advantage in this title, thumping the R5 5600 by to an 11% edge at 1080p, seen while utilizing the RTX 3090 Ti and RTX 3080 12GB.

The edge for the normal casing rate was decreased to only 3% with the 3070, however, the Intel CPU was 12% quicker while checking the 1% lows out. Then as we drop down to the 3060 the game turns out to be intensely GPU restricted and presently the two CPUs are confined to a similar degree of execution.

Expanding the goal builds the GPU bottleneck and presently we're taking a gander at tantamount execution straight up to the RTX 3080 with indistinguishable execution seen with the 3070 and 3060. The 12400F extended its legs a little with the RTX 3090 Ti, presenting to 8% more noteworthy execution as it pushed up to 105 fps.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider makes an appearance with a 10% presentation advantage for the 12400F, seen with the RTX 3080. Strangely, the edge is decreased to 6% with the RTX 3090 Ti, yet I truly do contemplate whether we're running into an Ampere design bottleneck at this low goal. Regardless, the Intel CPU was quicker with these very good quality GPUs, whereas we saw precisely the same execution utilizing the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

Obviously, expanding the goal builds the GPU load and in this way shifts execution more in the GPU bound heading, so outline rates are indistinguishably utilizing the RTX 3080, 3070, and 3060. The 12400F depended on 7% quicker with the RTX 3090 Ti, seen while taking a gander at the 1% lows, yet you can anticipate no distinction between these two CPUs at 4K, even with the 3090 Ti.

Contract killer 3 runs into a hard CPU bottleneck at 1080p with even the RTX 3070. The Zen 3 engineering is restricted to around 154 fps and Alder Lake 158 fps. Curiously, even with the RTX 3060, we observe that Alder Lake is a couple of edges quicker and this was reliably found in our Hitman 3 testing.

Moving to 1440p builds the GPU bottleneck and presently we're seeing practically no distinction between these two CPUs, even with the RTX 3090 Ti.

The Riftbreaker has shown to be a terrible title for AMD. We're seeing a really impressive CPU bottleneck with the Ryzen 5 5600 here, even with the RTX 3070, where the 12400F depended on 27% quicker, as seen while checking the 1% low information out. That edge developed with the 3080 and 3090 Ti and the Intel CPU depended on 34% quicker which is an enormous exhibition edge.

Indeed, even at 1440p, the 12400F partook in a telling lead, however, this was just seen with the RTX 3080 and 3090 Ti, yet at the same time, it depended on 33% quicker which is a huge room for error.

Continuing on toward Horizon Zero Dawn, we track down while utilizing the RTX 3060 and 3070 that the game is intensely CPU restricted, conveying a similar exhibition utilizing either the Core i5 or Ryzen 5 processor. Then with the quicker 3080 and 3090 Ti, the 5600 is 9-10% quicker than the Core i5 contest, so a sensible execution advantage for AMD.

That edge contracted to 5% at 1440p with the RTX 3090 Ti, while we see practically no distinction with the 3080 and no genuine contrast with the 3070 and 3060.

Next, we have F1 2021, where the 12400F gave more grounded execution the better quality GPUs. For instance, the RTX 3090 Ti saw a 16% improvement to 1% lows with the Core i5 part and a 7% lift to the normal casing rate.

That edge was decreased to 10% for the 1% lows with the RTX 3080 and only 4% for the normal casing rate. Then, at that point, we're taking a gander at essentially indistinguishable execution with the RTX 3070 and 3060.

In Rainbow Six Extraction the two CPUs are cutthroat, conveying essentially a similar gaming experience. When we arrived at the RTX 3080 the game was altogether CPU bound, hitting 300 fps. As you'd expect the 1440p information is basically the same, however this time we're totally GPU bound.

Longways 6 intensely inclines toward the Intel i5-12400F, conveying up to 13-14% more execution, as seen with the RTX 3080 and 3090 Ti. While utilizing the more slow GPUs there's almost no presentation distinction.

Expanding the goal to 1440p diminishes the edge with the RTX 3080 and 3090 Ti to 7%-8%, and obviously, we're taking a gander at no adjustment of execution utilizing the RTX 3070 and 3060.

9 Game Average
Here is a gander at normal edge rates, determined utilizing the geomean. We'll begin with the 1080p outcomes where the 12400F was 8% quicker while contrasting 1% lows, and 5% quicker for the normal casing rate. Not gigantic edges, but rather the Alder Lake CPU was quicker generally. We're likewise taking a gander at comparative edges with the RTX 3080, so for high casing rate gaming, the 12400F appears to be the better choice.

Dropping down to the RTX 3070 saw the edges diminished, particularly for the normal casing rate, and for the 1% lows, the 12400F was 6% quicker. Absolutely not a major contrast, but rather for those involving lower quality settings with an end goal to amplify outline rates, perhaps for cutthroat gaming, the 12400F will be the best approach.

With the RTX 3060 execution is indistinguishable. All things considered, assuming that you will game with an RTX 3060 or RX 6600 XT at 1080p utilizing mid-range quality settings, the edge will open up in support of Intel, however by a tiny edge.

Moving to 1440p shows there is certifiably not a major distinction between these two CPUs while plunging under 140 fps, and at around 100 fps there is no distinction. The 12400F doesn't get out ahead by an eminent edge until you fire pushing up north of 140 fps, and, surprisingly, then it ultimately depended on 9% quicker with the RTX 3090 Ti.

That is the way the Ryzen 5 5600 and Core i5-12400F look across 9 games at 1080p and 1440p utilizing four levels of GeForce GPUs. As you would expect, they're equitably matched generally, however, the Intel CPU is a bit quicker, and it's significant that of the 9 games tried, AMD hit the lead in Horizon Zero Dawn.

The 12400F overwhelmed on games that incline intensely on the essential string and that doesn't simply mean games like Far Cry 6. The Riftbreaker, for instance, vigorously uses present-day CPUs, spreading the heap across many centres, yet like most games, it still intensely depends on single-centre execution as the essential string is hit the hardest, and this can give the 12400F a significant exhibition advantage.

Ordinarily, a best-case result for the Ryzen 5 5600 will be something similar or comparative execution, similar to what was found in Rainbow Six Extraction and God of War. Obviously, the amount of a presentation distinction will rely upon the game and the quality settings utilized. Assuming you will utilize the greatest settings your GPU can deal with a 60-90 fps target, then there will be no perceptible distinction between these CPUs, and that will probably be the case in what's to come.

Nonetheless, assuming you're more inspired by high invigorate rate gaming - - 144+ fps - - then the 12400F will frequently end up being the better choice, conveying up to 33% more grounded execution, found in The Riftbreaker in the most limit of cases.

So, for easygoing gamers, it won't make any difference which one of these CPUs you go with. For cutthroat gamers, we recommend the Core i5-12400F... yet, before we dive excessively deep into suggestions, how about we look at value?

As noted before, the Ryzen 5 5600 goes for $200, while the Core i5-12400F is somewhat more reasonable at $180. The other component to consider is the motherboard cost.

The best worth B660 board as I would like to think is the MSI B660M-A Pro, which as of now costs $150 for the WiFi variant, $140 for the non-WiFi model, and the same AMD B550 board would be the B550-A Pro which likewise costs $150, however that board doesn't accompany a WiFi choice. That actually intends that assuming you're taking a gander at matching both of these processors with a fair spec board, estimating is about something very similar at ~$150.

Assuming you need without a doubt the least expensive motherboard accessible for the comparing stages, on the B660 front we'd purchase the MSI B660M-A Pro for $140. For AMD B550, notwithstanding, you could go as low as the Gigabyte B550M DS3H for $100. It's absolutely not an incredible board, but rather it works. The MSI B550M Pro-VDH WiFi is likewise nice at $120. Those little investment funds mean going Intel or AMD at this value portion will cost you moderately the equivalent.

In that situation, for those overhauling their foundation or building another PC, the Core i5-12400F with a good B660 board seems like the best approach. The best way for the Ryzen 5 5600 would be assuming that you as of now have a strong AM4 board, meaning the 5600 would be a drop-in CPU update.
The upside of the Intel LGA 1700 stage is that it will uphold one more CPU age, so if you somehow managed to purchase the 12400F currently, it's possible that moving up to a Raptor Lake Core i7 in the future would be of advantage, giving you got a fair B660 board now. The R5 5600 is restricted this age to the Zen 3 CPUs we as of now have and the forthcoming Ryzen 5 5800X3D.
