Which processor is the best

CPU benchmark 2021: processors in comparison test - with ranking

Update: December 14th, 2020

A lot has happened on the CPU market this year. Intel has released its 10th generation of the Core-i processors - Comet Lake-S - (test report for the 10900K & 10600K and 10400F & 10100) and with the Ryzen 3 3100 and the Ryzen 3 3300X there are two new entry-level models (for Review ). On 07/07/2020, AMD also reissued three popular models as XT versions (to the test report). The absolute highlight, however, was the release of the Ryzen 5000 processors (to the test report) on November 8th, which after a long time again won the gaming crown for AMD.

In a nutshell: AMD is putting a lot of pressure on Intel with the Zen 3 CPUs and is ahead in almost every area of ‚Äč‚Äčapplication - especially in gaming. The major problem, however, is the availability of the processors. Not only are all new Ryzen 5000 models difficult to obtain, but the price is also well above the RRP. At the same time, the delivery situation of the predecessor has deteriorated. The worst hit was the Ryzen 5 3600, which this summer was 16 percent cheaper than it is now for a longer period of time.

Since Intel does not manufacture its CPUs at TSMC but in its own factories, AMD's competitor is not affected by these problems. All processors of the 10th Core i generation have at least remained stable in price over the past few weeks, if not even fallen in price. The predecessor - Coffee Lake Refresh - in turn, should shortly reach the end-of-life status
