i3 12100 vs r5 4600g

Posted (edited)

I am planning on building my first pc and I found that the r5+ASRock B550M Steel Legend fits in my budget and the previous option was i3+MSI MAG B660M Mortar

so I was wondering which combo will be better- (budget- under ₹30000 for cpu+ mobo)

I will be using this pc for general tasks(web browsing, YT) and some gaming(cs: go, rocket league,) and note that I usually have 2-4 apps open in the background like ms word, rocket league

the build-

please tell me which combo will be better and I am also open to other cpu+ mobo suggestions

The AMD will outperform in games pretty easily I'd imagine, the on board is actually decent. All else they will perform near identically.

i don't think there will be much difference in games because the display is 60hz 1080p

With an APU, you might as well get a 5600G and a B450 board instead. There biggest difference between a low end B550 and low-mid range B450 is price and Gen 4 capability. Since the 4600G and 5600G don't support Gen 4 anyway, you might as well save the money with a B450 board, then use the money you saved for a 5600G instead since it's a fair bit faster. 

 

If you are gonna be running the iGPU, the Ryzen chip is better since the iGPU is actually usable for games. If you're gonna get a GPU at some point in the near future, the 12100 makes more sense.

The iGPU on the Intel CPUs is barely usable for games. It will be noticeable even in those games.

I'd say if you plan on purely using the iGPU... the 4600G will beat the 12100. But the moment you add a GPU, that completely flips around. As far as I can tell the 4500 is a 4600G with the iGPU disabled.

i will add a GPU sometime in the future and i went with a b550 mobo because i could not find any vrm thermal test for b450 boards(that matters because of the high 30s low 40s ambient temp in summers)

by the way, I have been playing rocket league with an intel HD 2500 till now(768p all low settings 25fps)
