Far Cry 5
The Ryzen 5 3600X lags the Intel processors in this title, but overclocking shrinks the gap with the -9600K tremendously. That said, overclocking the -9600K propels it to 142.9 FPS.
You'll notice that the PBO configuration with the Wraith Spire cooler takes a slim lead over the Corsair-equipped setup, but the 0.3 FPS margin lands within expected variance for this title.
Final Fantasy XV
We run this test with the standard quality preset to sidestep the impact of a bug that causes the game engine to render off-screen objects. This title scales well with additional cores and threads, but tuning grants minimal uplift for the Ryzen 5 3600X.
