The CPU that you are using will occupy an important part in the overall performance of the PC, and can be said to be the most important component in the system. But when you go to the store to buy a CPU, you will have to face a lot of codes and parameters.
You can refer to the list of the top 8 best CPUs in the first half of 2020 to satisfy your passion for gaming.
– AMD Ryzen 5 3600X – Best CPU for gaming
AMD Ryzen 3 3200G – Best affordable CPU for gaming
– Intel Core i9-10900X – Best high-end CPU for gaming
Intel Core i5-10600K – Best mid-range CPU for gaming
AMD Ryzen 9 3950X – Best CPU for gaming and video editing
Intel Pentium Gold G6400 – The most affordable CPU for gaming
– AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X – Best HEDT CPU for gaming
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X – Best CPU for gaming and streaming
But if you want a more overview of the performance of each chip, below will be a list of CPU ranks for you to refer to.

On the Intel side, there will be 7th generation (Kaby Lake), 8 (Coffee Lake), 9 (Coffee Lake), 10 (Comet Lake) chips, and AMD has Ryzen and Threadripper chips of all four generations. Games tested included Grand Theft Auto V, Hitman 2, Final Fantasy XV, and World of Tanks. Performance in work-oriented tasks is divided into two groups, single-threaded and multithreading performance. The strongest chip will be 100, then the weaker ones will use it as a reference.
In our gaming performance test, tom’s HARDWARE uses NVIDIA GTX 2080 Ti GPUs and battles the game in HD resolution. You may be surprised to find that there are chips that are lower priced but are ranked higher than their brothers. For example, the Core i7-9700K outperforms the Core i9-9900K on this list because it performs better in some games because it doesn’t have Hyper-Threading. However, depending on the application, the higher-end chips still deliver higher performance.
Single-threaded performance is often closely related to the experience of using a PC for daily tasks, such as surfing the web or opening an application. Single-threaded performance will largely depend on the number of instructions per cycle (IPC) and the clock speed. However, other factors such as caching, architecture, and interconnects also have an impact on performance, not none. So the clock speed, in this case, is not everything. More precisely, performance will vary depending on the task and depending on the optimization level for a given CPU architecture.
Similar to single-threaded performance, multithreading performance will vary with different factors. In addition, it depends on whether the software can make the most of the multi-core CPUs or not. Therefore, if you just rely on the multiplier / thread, you will see that the above results table has some weird places. Often times performance will increase unevenly with multiplier / thread addition, such as x2 multiplier is unlikely to have x2 performance.
Therefore, you need to see what software you use, so that you can make more accurate conclusions for your needs. In particular, for Threadripper with a terrible number of cores, to Most of all it is at the top, but for some tasks that are not well optimized for multi-core / threaded CPUs or architecture, Threadripper lags behind.
