    Openarena still tells the story AMD card scale down, while nVidia card scales up as soon as it sees more CPU cores.



    nVidia card likes to see more CPU cores, while AMD card became worse with more

    If you're using a discrete graphics chip, the Pentium G4600 is pretty pointless - while it has a vastly superior IGP compared to the Pentium G4520 (as the latter has half the EUs disabled) the cpu is pretty much identical, since the performance difference there is basically noise (just below 3% clock speed difference). And the G4520 should be ~15$ or so cheaper, making it a pretty good value. Of course, the core i3 8100 would also offer quite some formidable competition for the Ryzen 3 at a similar price point, albeit the lack of the cheaper 300-series chipsets so far puts it at a disadvantage.
    (And if all you need is the IGP, then that Ryzen 3 obviously doesn't compete. But the new Ryzen APUs of course would.)

    Wow these results are all over the place, but I think I see a few patterns. The Geforce seems more CPU thread bottlenecked as it gains more on the Ryzen with its actual 4 threads even with a slower clock. And the Radeon doesn't see much difference between CPU's despite the Pentiums higher clock or the Ryzens more (real) threads.

    EDIT: It seems like the Radeon should have seen an improvement in one situation or the other, but it doesn't. It seems like the nvidia driver has better multithreading optimization

    That was interesting, Intel shines with AMD-GPU and AMD-CPU with NVIDIA...

    Phoronix: Intel Pentium vs. AMD Ryzen 3 Performance For Linux Gaming

    For those that may be looking to assemble a new low-end Linux gaming system in early 2018, here is a look at the Linux gaming performance of an Intel Pentium (Kabylake) processor to an AMD Ryzen 3 while testing with the GeForce GTX 1050 and Radeon RX 560 graphics cards.
