Summary benchmark results

As a percentage of the maximum value based on a sample from the entire base of all processors
Processor Benchmark
Ryzen 9 6900HX62% Xeon Gold 6246R64%
This shows the performance of the processors in single-threaded and multi-threaded mode. In this comparison, Xeon Gold 6246R is 3% better than Ryzen 9 6900HX. The data source is several popular tests. More detailed information of the benchmarks is below.

Gaming performance
Summary result of all game benchmarks.
Ryzen 9 6900HX57% Xeon Gold 6246R68%
The maximum result in this parameter is 100 percent, which is the performance of the most powerful processor currently available. And of course, this is a server processor, on which no one will play games. Because this processor costs several tens of thousands of dollars. Therefore, if you think that the selected CPU has a little game result, look at the FPS that it produces in real games in the final table below.
List of less popular games in which processors were compared: Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Half-Life: Alyx, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO), NBA 2K20, Ghostrunner, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Forza Horizon 4, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Hitman 3, Metro Exodus, League of Legends (LOL), Monster Hunter World, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Horizon Zero Dawn, DOTA 2A, Battlefield V, Control.

The numbers in this table indicate the maximum FPS that was received on the device with the corresponding processor. Depending on the configuration of the computer (RAM size and Video Card) and graphics quality settings (Ultra, Medium, Normal), the results may differ quite significantly. We recommend that you better study the results of the Cinebench, GeekBench and Passmark becnmarks.
The tested computers not only did they have different video cards and different amounts of RAM. But users also tested them at different screen resolutions: FullHD, 2K or 4K. Therefore, the game benchmark data is approximate. But all video cards met the average system requirements of games. To be sure exactly how much performance the processor will be in games, if you get acquainted with the benchmarks that are made with the same video card that is installed in your computer.


Power consumption
Ryzen 9 6900HX120% Xeon Gold 6246R16%
To make a finishing decision on which processor is better, you should also consider the generation of its core. The newer the processor generation, the better its performance in games and benchmarks, as well as its energy efficiency. In this case the Ryzen 9 6900HX is more energy efficient than the Xeon Gold 6246R since it has less power consumption: 45W vs. 205W. Power consumption is especially important for laptops. Also, when choosing a processor cooling system, you must know its TDP. It is necessary to count so that the TDP data specified in the cooler specification is greater than the TDP of the compared processor.

Software benchmarks

For example you want to use the processor not only for gaming, but also for programming, video editing or video rendering, machine learning, streaming, then the main parameter for you is its performance in multi-threaded mode. In this mode, the CPU uses all threads and cores that it has to the maximum to reach maximum performance. You will find out this data from the benchmark tables below. Before you take into account the data from these tests, be sure to check whether the program you are going to use on your computer supports multi-threaded mode. Because there are still many programs that can use only one core to work, and all the benefit of multi-core mode turns out to be unnecessary.

Comparison of specifications

In the specification comparison table, the processor release date and overclocking capability will be the most useful. The newer the processor, the longer it will last in your computer. And the easier it will be to upgrade the system in the future. The same benefits from the presence of overclocking. If the processor can be overclocked, increasing its performance, then it will still be able to produce maximum FPS in new games. It turns out that there is no longer a need to buy a new CPU to enjoy the games any longer. The savings are obvious!

In this comparison block, you should pay attention to the differences in clock speed and the number of cores. Here Xeon Gold 6246R is 2% better than Ryzen 9 6900HX in terms of CPU frequency. Another difference is that Xeon Gold 6246R has 8 more core than Ryzen 9 6900HX. Also keep in mind that high CPU frequency affects battery life through power consumption (relevant for laptops).

Result:
The number of parameters for which AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX is better: 14
The number of parameters for which Intel Xeon Gold 6246R is better: 22
   Although it should be understood that the summary data in the table above do not mean that taking them into account you should totally trust a simple comparison of these numbers. Better to watch the video tests and read the reviews of of people who bought AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX and Intel Xeon Gold 6246R before making a selection which processor to buy for gaming and which not.
