Comparison between AMD and Intel

As we all know AMD is the competitor of the Intel in terms of processor, so this time they were directly targeting the Intel Core i9 10900K processor which intel said that is the ‘Worlds most powerful gaming processor’.

AMD didn’t succeed in beating the Clock Sheer speed of the Intel processor which maxes out at a boosted 5.3GHz, while the Ryzen 5950X tops out at 4.9GHz. But AMD offers more advantages as a gaming processor, like improved power efficiency and a higher core and thread count which directly shows that AMD is one step above than Intel’s best processor.

AMD also claims that it’s AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU is much better than Intel i9 10900K CPU in head-to-head performance for a wide range of titles, including League of LegendsDota 2Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more.
