The XT series of Ryzen CPUs barely outperform their cheaper X and non-X counterparts: 3600, 3600X, 3800X, 3900X. Outside of encoding workloads such as UserBenchmark 64-core, Cinebench, Blender-CPU and Handbrake-CPU the Ryzen architecture remains limited by relatively high latency and the associated gaming bottleneck (frame drops). Dedicated hardware such as NVENC or QuickSync remains far more efficient than CPU cores for encoding. CPU based encoding is akin to using hair clippers on a lawn. The best value CPU amongst the Ryzen range is the 3300X which is the first design to focus on delivering lower latency, and therefore better performance where users need it, rather than “Moar Coars”. Aside from the army of anonymous influencers on social media (reddit, forums, youtube etc.), users will be hard pressed to find rational arguments that favor the XT variants over their cheaper predecessors. [Jul '20 CPUPro]

The i5-10400F is a six-core hyperthreaded CPU from Intel’s latest Comet Lake series of desktop processors. This 65 W CPU has single core and all core boost frequencies of 4.3 GHz and 4.0 GHz, respectively. Whilst the 10400F will require a new LGA1200 motherboard, such as the Z490, Intel have guaranteed that the next generation of Rocket Lake CPUs will also be compatible with this chipset. The 10400F is aimed at mid-tier gaming PC builds, and as such, ships with a cooler but without integrated graphics. Despite being officially launched in Q2 of 2020, at the time of writing, the 10400F is still not widely available. Compared to the similarly priced Ryzen 5 3600, the 10400F’s lower memory latency gives it the lead in gaming and effective speed benchmarks. Since the Ryzen architecture creates a gaming bottleneck, it is necessary to upgrade to a higher tier, Intel CPU for better gaming performance. On the other hand comparing the i5-10400F and the i3-10100 shows that the 10100 offers comparable gaming performance for 22% less money whilst also including integrated graphics. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
