In Encoding, Transcoding, and Compression Ryzen 9 3900X shows excellent performance but in Battlefield 5 and Metro Exodus, i9-9900k rips it off by more than 10 FPS. On other games, they are almost equal. Here, we may conclude that core count wins in compression, encoding, and transcoding only but in games, it almost loses to high-frequency having CPU.
