【Tech News】6 CPU ultimate showdown - Intel vs AMD processor

By  GB Blog Official 2018-04-28 2721 1

It is said that the intel i5 processor is most suitable for playing games. And recently AMD has also released two new processors, one is 2700X and the other is 2600X. Most players will choose midrange processors to install, and you?

We all know that, under all conditions being equal, the processor's intervention in the number of game frames is far less than the graphics card, but many players are pursuing the limit of the number of frames, and thus at all costs to comprehensive upgrade. However, there are not many extreme players, and some people will choose to compare the midrange processors. At this time, the price/performance ratio has become the key. Therefore, we have selected 6 processors for comparative testing to see which processor is more cost-effective.

6 CPU ultimate showdown Intel vs AMD processor

We chose Intel's i5-8500, i5-8600K, i7-8700K and AMD’s 1600X, 2600X, 2700X processors. These processors have both mainstream and high-end flagships, the test results are very promising. What are the performances of these processors? We will wait and see.

List of test platforms

On the Intel platform, we used the Colorful C.B360-HD DELUXE V20, a reconstructed look that was more durable than before, but also provided multiple updates. It closely followed the pace of chipset updates and excellent onboard audio continued. Since the magic sound series descent

In this test, we will use the Simplified Chinese version of the Windows 10 64-bit version of the operating system, turn off all Windows boot startup items, and do not optimize the operating system for maximum system stability and compatibility.

Test platform hardware and software configuration

We will disable features such as screen saver, hibernation, system restore, and automatic update. We will also use the public version of the motherboard and the display chipset driver to provide the basis for obtaining the most realistic and original objective evaluation data. Finally, it should be noted that the product parameters involved in the test, as well as the motherboard and the display chipset driver will be commented on in the test platform description.

Benchmark performance test

In the new 3DMARK, it provides users with a number of functions such as benchmarking and functional testing. In the benchmark test, we include Fire Strike tests that we are familiar with. These tests include multiple strengths. Users can select the corresponding test items according to their own platform's performance level.

3D Mark TS

Futuremark's 3DMark Time Spy benchmarking software is its first test project specifically designed for the DX12 environment. The test was jointly developed by Futuremark and AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and many other benchmark development projects (BDP) partners. From scratch, it is fully geared towards DX12. The core engine is also based entirely on DX12, which can completely unlock the potential of the new API. This includes reducing processor load, making efficient use of GPU hardware, asynchronous computing, mixing multiple graphics cards, multithreading, and more.

Game comparison test

Rise of Tomb Raider is a cross-platform series of action games distributed by Square Enix. Rise of Tomb Raider is about how Laura continued her adventure after becoming a strong man. This time, the place of the story was transferred from the Japanese evil Matai to the snow-covered Siberian region of Russia, where Laura was looking for Russia's "Atlantis" city and solved numerous mysteries. The screen will support Ultra HD 4K games. The exquisiteness of the game images is not only amazing. In PC quality options, players can also adjust textures, shadows, ambient occlusion, depth of field, and level of detail, etc. Options can be adjusted and picture options are richer.

Watchman Pioneer is a team first-person shooter game. The story of the game takes place in the advanced science and technology of the earth. In the global crisis period, outstanding soldiers, scientists, adventurers and strangers from different parts of the world gathered to form a special force to save this shattered world of war. They are "watchers." There are two kinds of game missions, one is "escor", in which the attacker must ship the specified target to the designated location, and the defender must stop the attacker until the end of the time. The other is "Occupy," and the two sides will fight for control of the map. One team will attack and the other team will defend. The main purpose of the attacker is to occupy key markers, and the defender must maintain control until the end of time.

Watchman Pioneer

After a series of tests, it was found that 8500 actually achieved the highest number of frames in the Watchman Pioneer. For some of the watchful pioneers, this is a god U. With the colorful B360 motherboard, the price performance is overwhelming. Compared to the processor with K, a higher specification Z370 is needed to match, and the actual increase is far less than the amount of money spent.

Judging from all the test results, high-end processors can indeed improve our performance in terms of integration, but if you are just a game player, the platform that you may spend heavily on can not bring you the desired experience, so there is no other In the case of demand, it is still highly recommended to choose the i5 processor without K, and the money saved with the B-Series motherboard will allow the graphics card to at least two levels and bring a better gaming experience. From the data, we can find out that the i5-8500's comprehensive performance is very good. If we use the colorful B360 used in our tests, it is the perfect combination.
