Which to select
It is time to pick the winner. What is the difference between AMD Ryzen 5 1600X vs Intel Core i7-4960HQ? What CPU is more powerful? It is quite easy to determine – look at comparison table. The processor with more cores/ threads and also with higher frequency is the absolute winner!
CPU Cores and Base Frequency
Who will win between AMD Ryzen 5 1600X vs Intel Core i7-4960HQ. The general performance of a CPU can easily be determined based on the number of its cores and the thread count, as well as the base frequency and Turbo frequency. The more GHz and cores a CPU has, the better. Please note that high technical specs require using a powerful cooling system.
CPU generation and family
Some manufacturers complement their CPUs with graphic chips, such a solution being especially popular in laptops. The higher the clock frequency of a GPU is and the bigger its memory, the better. Find a winner - AMD Ryzen 5 1600X vs Intel Core i7-4960HQ.

Devices using this processor
You probably know already what devices use CPUs. These can be a desktop or a laptop.
It is the updated version of the Cinebench R15 benchmark. This version provides improved benchmark accuracy at testing of processors. Cinebench R20 is based on Cinema 4 Suite. It is the software used to create 3D forms. The benchmark runs for single-core test procedure without counting of hyperthreading ability.
It is the new version of the benchmark which is developed on the basis of Cinebench R15 (both versions are operated on the basis of Cinema 4 - the most popular 3D modeling software). Cinebench R20 is used for multi-core processor performance benchmark tests and hyperthreading ability.
We use Blender benchmark to trace performance of the central processing unit. Blender is the software for professional rendering and creating of 3D bodies which can also be animated. The testing results show you how fast the unit runs on the implementation of the multi-processing tasks. Here everything works on the principle that the faster rendering for 3D scenes, the better.
This synthetic test will help you determine the real computing power of a single core in the central processing unit. Cinebench R11.5 is based on MAXON CINEMA 4D and employs various testing scenarios and branded power analysis algorithms. The higher the estimated value, the faster the computations of a single CPU core are.
The crypto currency Monero has been using the RandomX algorithm since November 2019. This PoW (proof of work) algorithm can only efficiently be calculated using a processor (CPU) or a graphics card (GPU). The CryptoNight algorithm was used for Monero until November 2019, but it could be calculated using ASICs. RandomX benefits from a high number of CPU cores, cache and a fast connection of the memory via as many memory channels as possible. Tested with XMRig v6.x under the operation system HiveOS.
