The 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen 9 5950X is an impressive workhorse. It sits at the top of AMD’s latest Zen 3 based, 5000 series of CPUs and sends a clear message that AMD can beat Intel in terms of raw performance and core count. The 5950X has a boost clock speed of up to 4.9 GHz, a massive 72 MB cache and a TDP rating of 105W. Despite the clear “gaming” focus of AMD’s 5000 series launch marketing, the 5950X does not efficiently leverage all its 16 cores in gaming (as demonstrated by similar effective speed scores compared to the 12-core 5900X, 8-core 5800X and 6-core 5600X.) 16 cores are only suitable for professional use cases that have CPU processing needs which cannot be more efficiently met by a GPU or other dedicated hardware. There is no Intel equivalent with this number of cores, and the 5950X’s uniqueness is reflected in its $799 USD price tag, 45% more expensive than the 5900X. Gamers will get far higher FPS per dollar by allocating a higher proportion of their budget towards a better GPU rather than blowing $799 USD on the 5950X. Professional users that plan to use 32 concurrent threads at 100% load will find value in the 5950X. On the other hand, workstation users that rarely exceed 20 concurrent threads at 100% should consider the 10850K for around half the money. [Nov '20 CPUPro]

The i3-10100 is Intel’s entry level 10th generation Comet Lake processor and represents the best value for money within the line-up. This quad-core hyper-threaded 65 Watt processor ships with a cooler and is capable of 4.3 GHz single and 4.1 GHz all core boosts. Although the i3-10100 requires a new LGA1200 motherboard, Intel have guaranteed that LGA1200 will be compatible with the next generation of Rocket Lake CPUs, expected later this year. Running at stock (2666 MHz) RAM frequency handicaps performance by as much as 15% so gamers should pair the 10100 with a Z490 motherboard. This will both open an upgrade path to higher tier "K" tier CPUs and unlock higher XMP RAM speeds (here is one of the builds from our EFps test lab). When paired with an RTX 2060S, the 10100 lags just 13% behind the i9-10900K flagship. The 10100 allows budget gamers to allocate more money towards a better GPU which often results in a stronger overall gaming system. At a retail price of $122 USD, the 10100 competes against AMD’s quad-core Ryzen 3 3300X. Game EFps and effective speed benchmarks show that the 10100’s lower memory latency gives it the edge. In addition, unlike the 3300X, the 10100 also packs integrated graphics with Quick Sync hardware encoding, which alleviates the need for desktop users to purchase a separate GPU. In order to achieve better value for money, it is necessary to consider the older generation 9100F, which, when paired with a 2060S, is 39% cheaper ($75 USD) for comparable gaming performance. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
