The processors have been tested at gaming to recognize their true potential, durability, and speed. The resolutions which have been tested are 1080p.
1. Project Cars
Project Cars was tested with the games benchmark tool to provide accurate results. At 1080p Ryzen 7 5800X reached a 3.8% higher average FPS than intel i7-10700K.
2. The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3 was tested by using the same game format on both processors. When tested at 1080p the Ryzen 7 5800X touched a 4.2% increase at higher average rates than intel i7-10700K giving an outstanding performance.
PUBG was tested with the games benchmark. Again the 5800X was faster, with a 0.8% lead over the 10700K at 1080p.
4. Red Dead Redemption 2
The Red Dead Redemption 2 was put at the test with the games benchmark to reach the utmost accuracy. Yet again the Ryzen 7 5800X showed an outclass performance and resulted to be faster.
5. Microsoft Flight Simulator
Microsoft Flight Simulator was tested in the Sydney landing challenge. At 1080p the 5800X had a 3.2% lead.
6. Mafia Definitive Edition
Mafia Definitive Edition was tested with the games benchmark too, and the 5800X was ahead in average frame rates at high setting levels.
7. Battlefield V
This game was tested in campaign mode to determine its outlook on the two processors. The test did not result in any significant difference. About 3 FPS difference was shown regardless of resolution percentage.
8. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
In this game there was no difference in Average FPS. At 1080p both Ryzen 7 5800X and intel i7-10700K worked at the same pace.
In a comparison of gaming tests and the productivity rate of the two processors, the Ryzen 7 5800X came out on top, with higher results in terms of strength, speed, durability, consumption rate, and percentage.
Taking into consideration the price point, the Ryzen 7 5800X costs $450, which is a more expensive and luxurious price point, but given the performance and features, the price is certainly justified, whereas the Intel i7 10700K costs $360, which is a much more affordable price point.
If you’re looking for a gaming processor, the Intel i7 10700K is the better option due to its lower price. Its performance at resolutions is adequate, and it is reasonably priced, but if you require a processor that combines all features and specifications with a modest result and frequency, the Ryzen 7 5800X is the processor for you.
