Who makes the best CPU for gaming? Generally speaking, Intel wins out in pure framerates, though many other factors come into play. With AMD’s latest Ryzen 9 3900X and other 3rd Gen CPUs, the battle is far closer, and both companies have their strong suits.
Both companies also make HEDT (High-End Desktop) CPUs for ‘enthusiasts,’ but with the higher core counts now available in Ryzen CPUs, HEDT is difficult to recommend as a gaming solution. But what about as a pancake cooking solution? Our friends at Tom’s Hardware recently set out to determine which CPU was best for cooking pancakes. As a result, Tom’s might also be looking to buy a new CPU when the Black Friday deals roll around.
