GTA: V and Hitman

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V favors Intel architectures and, more generally, multi-core designs with high clock rates.

The Core i5-9600K establishes a sizable lead over AMD's fastest processors. Strangely, though, an overclocked -9600K trails the tuned -8600K yet again.


Intel's Core i5-9600K easily beats the Ryzen chips in spite of their thread count advantage.
