Nvidia RTX 3070 Benchmarks Ryzen 3600XT vs 3600X vs 3600 9+ Games Tested Ultra High Settings 1080p

With AMD’s official announcement of the Matisse refresh, we now have a clear look at the specs of the XT CPUs that were recently launched on the 7th of July. The Ryzen 5 3600XT is the one that we’re going to dive into for now but if you are interested in the other two launching CPUs, the Ryzen 7 3800XT or the Ryzen 9 3900XT, we have provided you with thoughts on those as well in the linked articles.

In the following section we have organized the set of most important specifications of the Zen 2 Ryzen 5 family. We are comparing the already popular Ryzen 5 3600 & 3600X processor from 2019 to the upcoming Matisse refresh which is the Ryzen 5 3600XT. The improvements on paper may look scarce but AMD claims that all of its Ryzen 3000 XT series processors will feature up to a 4% increase in single-threaded performance over the existing parts while delivering 40% better efficiency than the CPUs from the competition; that’s Intel.
Like its 3600 & 3600X brothers, the Ryzen 5 3600XT scores very well in the ‘cost per frame’ section, proving yet again to be a better gaming option to the 6 core 12 thread Intel part, the Core i5 10600K. Extreme overclocking and tweaking might push the 10600K above the 3600 XT performance but you need to take into consideration that you’ll need a higher end motherboard and strong cooler for that which will worsen the cost per frame even more.

The 3600XT is just an amazing option for a gamer on a budget that also wants to start using their system as a content creator. This 6 core CPU is definitely capable of gaming and streaming at the same time and if you’re looking for greater multi-core performance you can check out the 8 core Ryzen parts for yet again, amazing multi-threaded value.

If you are taking into consideration the cost of motherboard and CPU cooler, the Ryzen 5 3600XT is now almost 3 times better value for gaming than the top gaming CPU on the market right now, the 10900K. Its best to do this in order to understand how much money you need to pay in order to get the desired level of performance. If multi-core performance isn’t your primary need from the system and want a strong gaming system, then the Ryzen 5 3600XT together with the 3600 & 3600X are the current best value on the market and have been since Zen 2 launched back in 2019.
