Hi, I currently have a laptop with core i7 10510u, but recently I've decided to try and upgrade for a better PC, that can run games, editing softwares, and game engines smoothly. For example, every time i try running unity, my cpu is under load and can even get to 100 precent usage. So, I need a cpu that is a little better but not overkill and not so expensive. I found Ryzen 5 5600x is great, not that expensive and good preformer. So my question is: is it better than my current cpu?
Try unlocking power limits with throttlestop so the cpu isnt being limited by garbage power limit
Yes 5600x will crush the 10510u even if the 10510u is running at its full potential and not limited by cooling or power limit, do keep in mind that 5600 non x exist so theres abit of cost saving, not to mention decent used midranger b3/450 boards going ~60$ used (pro4, a pro, aorus elite, etc.)
