Civilization VI Graphics & AI, Dawn of War III
Civilization VI AI Test
The Ryzen 5 2600X represents a nice step forward for AMD, particularly since Intel's processors typically lead in this test due to their per-core performance advantage.
A few of the processors exhibit slight regressions post-patch, but nothing outside of the variances we'd expect.
Civilization VI Graphics Test
An overclocked Ryzen 5 2600X beats the stock Ryzen 7 2700X, which should excite value-seekers.
Then again, Intel's Core i5-8400 slips past the tuned Ryzen 5 in this test, yielding better performance at a lower price (and despite a locked ratio multiplier).
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
Dawn of War finds the tuned Coffee Lake-based CPUs at the top of our chart. Even the fastest Ryzen (overclocked, no less) lands behind a stock Core i7-7700K.
Interestingly, the Coffee Lake CPUs enjoy slight gains after we patch them, while Core i7-7700K doesn't change much.
