But is this default setup of the 3600XT or PBO ?If these benchmarks are to be trusted, the 3600XT won't be winning the battle against Intel's cheapest 10th-Gen Core i5.

If it were real, why would anyone cover the "XT" part of the product name with tape? That makes zero sense and removes any believability that it might be a real 3600 XT in the photo. Covering the serial number and QR code makes sense, but not the one part of the product name that would identify it as a new processor.Update 30/06/2020 4:56 am PT: VideoCardz confirmed our suspicions that the chip pictured by TecLab was not a real Ryzen 5 3600XT, but rather a standard 3600, making this a likely case of a fake preview.
Another thing to ask would be if the 10400 were running at stock memory settings or not. Most people buying one of these sub-$200 locked i5s are likely to pair them with a mid-range B or H-series motherboard, but Intel artificially restricts memory speed on those boards to DDR4-2666. Running an i5-10400 with memory at that speed can cut gaming performance by around 5-10% in CPU-limited scenarios compared to DDR4-3200, so test results utilizing faster memory are not going to be entirely representative of what performance will be like on most systems running that processor.But is this default setup of the 3600XT or PBO ?
