It's a shame intel hasn't unlocked this chip. If it was I think it would the go-to for a budget/mid-range build. Still think I'll be going the i5 route though as right now I can get one for £130 whereas the r5 is £180! In the UK.

Have just started to read some more on the 10400's reliance on memory speeds which means paring it with a B460 board for the budget may not work out with as much of a lead as first thought. Due to B460's supported memory speeds.

Things have changed bigly since this video was made. I've been a team red guy for years but with the insane markups to AMD right now, for pure gaming on the cheap, this chip and a workable mobo can be had for under $300 and will do just fine.

That avg 7% fps gain in the 10400 is easily overcome with an all core OC On the ryzen chip which is unlocked, 90% of 3600s will do 4.2ghz all core all the time.

Thanks for the video! By the way, as of 12/30/2020, the i5 10400 goes for $150.00 at microcenter and the ryzen 5 3600 goes for $200.00 if you can find one. Additionally, intel chips are almost entirely assembled in the US unlike the AMD chips... Not bad for the intel chip considering it outperforms the ryzen 3600 at gaming FPS.

Right now in the U.S. where I live, the Ryzen 5 3600 is $210.00 and the I5 10400 is $178.00. Not so different, small world. I am trying to upgrade my pc now. I have a I5 7600k bottlenecking my 2070super, so I'm watching these vids to see if I should switch to team red. I have never used AMD and know almost nothing about their products, other than they are more expensive than they were.

it doesnt make sense that the i5 is drawing 200W more than the Ryzen whilst also being siginicantly cooler. I feel like maybe the power draw is more jerky and it causes larger spikes to the system. That's still a huge issue tough.

I5 10400 with h410 is great for gaming.. but intel stupid chipset that lock ram speed. 10400 is good for new pc builder just looking for gaming. Doesn't have to think manual overclocking. That boost speed good is enough for gaming. Pair it with rtx2060 or rx5600 excellent gaming performer. Rather than seeing someone build pc with ryzen 3600 with a320 chipset is waste of money.

There are bad point on you comparaison. You test of I5 is made in mouth of his release. The optimisation is not so good at this time. It's would help a lot if you doing a new comparaison soon again. Because in userbenchmark, I5 have better physical treat by lowering latencing so it would be a game change. And i suspect that the multi treat or the rendering time could be similar of the R5. Like arround 10% of difference . By the way, nice video because you testing program with pratice and the final point have a pertinent view.

Something to consider is that some people use the cpu for things other than gaming or video editing. The 10400 has a respectable iGPU and can be utilized without paying at least 100$ for a gpu just to get video output from the ryzen. I'm a programmer with no interest in games and care about the CPU performance a bit so not going for an Intel 10th gen i3 or ryzen 3200G but I think the 10400 is a sweet spot because I don't need to spend 100$ to buy an old GPU with no return value for me to use a ryzen 3600 and I get acceptable CPU performance with the 10400 and the iGPU can run IDEs and code editors on 2 monitors

If you are under budget, Intel is still the choice because AMD is pushing up prices and you don't need dual channel RAM really with Intel. Plus you can now pair it with a cheap H410 motherboard because you wouldn't be overclocking anyways. I am surprised why no one mentions this. And almost all budget gamers never upgrade their CPUs so Ryzen mobo compatibility is just not useful. And Intel 10th gen is basically Ryzen 3rd gen core/thread wise. And nobody cares about power usage when buying a GPU, and Intel non-OC models aren't too hot either. People will save more money by buying an Intel now, if they don't care about upgradability, power efficiency etc.

This video is of course made on AMD side, i5 is better in all ways, yes more power hungry but better performance. I'm not AMD hater, I use AMD graphics card with Intel CPU, I have a RX 5500xt paired with a i5 9400f. AMD pays a lot of DEpostrs review their CPUs and say good things about. Is 2020 this how adds are made... But trust me go always with Intel for CPUs. Is more reliable, yes mayabe the stock coolers are not the best but this is not the point. I not saying AMD CPUs are worse, I'm saying just they never will above Intel. Is like compare a idk, a Lamborghini with a BMW, both are premium but the Lamborghini is faster, not made for traffic etc, while the BMW is fast too but not as Lamborghini, but is good for urban roads.

It's an absolutely pathetic, yet very expensive board
