Are you referencing this just solely for gaming? because if not, AMD wipes the floor with everything Intel puts out at the moment. In terms of gaming, even though Intels architecture can produce better frame rates marginally, it does it by a achieving it at the cost of a lot more power. One of the varying factors that have caused AMD to be slightly slower in gaming is due to the latency problem attributed to chiplet architecture- using an off-die memory controller adds time to calculation- decreasing performance slightly in games vs intel. Zen 3 is supposedly seeking to redress this by having a single CCX/CCD arrangement. This (if it turns out to be right based on leaks) alongside the fact that they already nearly achieve what intel does with literally nearly half the power requirement puts it in good stead. what compounds this more is Intel's rocket lake architecture is still going to be at 14nm....I personally think by the end of the year we will see not only a superior developer/creator CPU from AMD, but also a gaming one. With the 10xxx looking the way it is now (Again this is based on just one review- its worrying indicia) and the way intel previously treated consumers who purchased below the i9 range (removing hyperthreading? come on!), its apparent Intel thought they had AMD in a square they could manage. Maybe not.
