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


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 executed incorrectly, 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%)
Valuing 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%)
Valuing 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.
