Intel vs AMD new processors for desktop gaming

Hi, I've been having trouble with deciding which new desktop cpu I should wait for. I've watched videos about people saying that switching to AMD's new processor this year for my new PC build. However, I use my desktop for gaming and school work (such as mathspace or education perfect) and I've been scourging the internet for answers and I can't seem to find any. So I call for your help, should I wait for Intel to release their latest processors or should I wait and then make the switch for AMD's new processors.

Go AMD, there's no way intel will beat AMD for now

If you're waiting - wait for Zen 3 in September. Else get Zen 2 now. Intel 10th gen is a rebrand of 8th gen mostly. It's the same Skylake-based design (again) and it's not worth the money

Are you sure, I like AMD, however, I got told that intel will come back since they defeated AMD once and that Intel will defeat them again

If you want the best PP-Ratio (Price to Performance), go with AMD and Ryzen.

If you have a huuuge budget and only care about pure perfromance, go with Intel.

Rumours are that Intel next gen mobos will be announced later this week, which would only make sense if the CPUs were also. Those are still unremarkable and will most likely cost more than their AMD equivalent models.

 

I'm sure Intel will catch up and may past again, but not any time in the next year.

Unless the person who told you this has a crystal ball and is a proven psychic - ignore that gibberish. Intel are currently behind and solidlby behind. Their 10nm is broken, their security is busted and their 14nm is exhausted. The soonest they could even compete is late 2021

Ryzen 5 4600 or 4700X. Depending on prices and what you need.

Yeah no, the crystal ball is sick with coronavirus so there's no telling.

 

Either wait for next gen intel and AMD releases, or buy AMD now.

His tip is a flat-out lie, though.

So instead have a few cherry picked benchmarks and the totally irrelevant for gaming Cinebench?

 

Too lazy to dig it up but at least show a gaming blend like Hardware Unboxed do.

I'm showing pudget and HU - as you can see above. Nothing is cherry picked. Literally digging them up as we speak

Certain games will favour Intel and others AMD - but in most cases, it's so close that it doesn't matter in gaming
