- Pro - still faster in single thread application
- Con - power hungry, locked CPU for all non K post-fix CPU types, only overclock on Z type motherboards, price of Z type motherboard is overprice IMO
What gives you the impression Intel will give you better RAM speed or support better RAM speed? Look at the CPU specification and see what the native supported RAM speed and buy accordingly. AMD 5000 natively support up to 3200 MHz RAM, you want to overclock then buy something like 3600+. You have to be careful with Intel at the moment, their low end CPU and non-K CPU don't support anything beyond 2600, you can't fix it by putting a non-K into a Z-board. To be honest, I would either get a 10th gen i5-10600 or i9-10900 or wait for 12th gen if I'm going Intel.
- Pro - consumes less power, output less heat, out performance Intel in mutli-core applications, all the CPU are unlocked and you can even overclock on lower spec B type motherboard, you will need a X board if you need more PCI lanes or PCI-E gen 4
- Con - pricing and availability, Intel performance is 2nd ranked this time around so they are cutting prices on 10th gen CPU
