AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT vs Intel Core i5-10400 Review Leaked: Update (Fake)

Update: This seems to have been a fake review as the serial number of the chip is the same as the 3600.

Techlab has done it once again. The Chinese outlet has shared a preview of the upcoming Ryzen 5 3600XT well before the official launch. The website compares the 3600XT against Intel’s 10th Gen Core i5-10400 in popular gaming benchmarks to help you decide which one is the better budget gaming CPU:

Now, before we start, one thing you need to keep in mind is that the Core i5-10400 was tested using super-fast 2000MHz (4000MT/s) memory which isn’t something you’d pair with this chip. Namely because none but the top-end Z series motherboards which cost more than the chip itself support more than 2666MHz memory. As such, the frame rates in the below benchmarks are 10-15% higher than what you ought to expect from a 10400. Let’s have a look:

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
World War Z

Unfortunately, there are only three benchmarks to sift from which doesn’t give us a lot of data to analyze. Generally, the two chips are mostly on par with each other with the deltas in World War Z and Breakpoint within the margin of error. However, as already mentioned the Core i5-10400 is using faster memory which isn’t supported on H and B series motherboards, therefore, we can sure that the chip will be at least 5-10% slower than the 3600XT in these titles. Then again, the official MSRP of the 10400 is roughly $100 less than the 3600XT’s $249. Then again, we’ll have to see if retailers adhere to these prices or sell the new chips at the same prices as the vanilla 3000 series.
