Since AMD announced its next-generation Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors based on Zen 3 core, everyone has been wondering how the new processors perform. For a detailed review and performance numbers, you should wait for official reviews. However, today we have the scores of Ryzen 5 5600X CPU. Thanks to the popular hardware leaker @TUM_APISAK, the Ryzen 5 5600X performance numbers in the SiSoftware Sandra benchmark suite have been leaked. When digging under the hood, the new Ryzen CPU contains six of Zen 3 cores with 12 threads, paired with as much as 32 MB of level three (L3) cache. These cores are running at 3.7 GHz base frequency, while the boost speeds are reaching 4.6 GHz.

In the test results, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU has scored Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multi-Media scores of 255.22 GOPS and 904.38 Mpix/s. These scores are not much on their own until we compare them to some of the Intel offerings. When compared to the Intel Core i5-10600K CPU, which is likely its targeted competing category, it scores 224.07 GOPS and 662.33 Mpix/s for Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multi-Media tests respectively. This puts the AMD CPU ahead 13.9% and 36.5% in these tests, indicating the possibility of Zen 3. Another important note here is the thermal headroom both of these CPUs run. While the Intel model is constrained withing 125 W TDP, the AMD model runs at just 65 W TDP. This could be an indication of the efficiency that these new processors harness.

seems so now i'm really eager to so see what intel will say about these "glued" cpu's as it seems they still looking for the magic "glue" even is not there...:)

It could indeed, but we know that these numbers do not represent the reality, as gaming or other workloads.
They should‘ve include a ZEN2 CPU in there for better comparison.

Apparently Intel has come up with a glue also.

I disagree, I think over reaction, speculation and hyperbole is the way to go. Furthermore, for those people who game at 1080p with a RTX 2080 or higher gpu they no longer must suffer with the stuttering mess of 150 FPS provided by comet lake CPUs (assuming no OC) but can now fly free at a smooth 165 FPS via Zen 3. AMD, making PC gaming Great Again.

I'm still debating myself which one I should get, x5600x or 5900x. I have a 3600 at moment, single thread is what I'm aiming, maybe now 5600x is a better option then in 2 years a 6900x with ddr5.

Get the 5800x, it's the most dense cores per ccx chip, it and the 5950x obviously.

If gaming...

1. GPU
2. CPU

Depending the target resolution as of what GPU and what CPU.

I feel like there's probably no point in upgrading if you end up being bottlenecked by your GPU.

both of you need to drop this "common sense" BS and get on the Zen 3 band wagon. After all it wasn't that long ago when Zen 2 came out and revolutionized gaming by offering i5-9400 performance from their processors.

AMD's ZEN 3 does look very promising. Intels rocket lake needs to be significantly better than there sky lake based arkitekturer. Cause it looks like Intel needs cpu cores there are at least 20 %+ faster than there current CPU's. To both beat amd and take the performance crown back, cause i assume amd will now get the crown for now with Zen 3. The only thing I can think of Intel will still be the leading part is in avx 512 load. Else I doubt Intel will have much chance in many task to win over Zen 3, at least until rocket lake. Even if Rocket lake is faster core to core, rumors say max 8 cores for Intel's 11 gen while amd has up to 16 cores. So even at best, Intel will not have a chance to beat amd i pure raw cpu performance.

Hence why I hope, my plan's for a new 2 in 1 pc. Can be a reallity. But we have this dam virus, that still causing instability. Covid-19 already cost me the chance to upgrade to Ryzen 9 3950X at the beginning of the year. So It can sure as hell ruin my plans again. But do things go to my plans, I will be getting Ryzen 5 5600X (maybe 5600 none X L, to save a little) and Ryzen 5950X after Christmas/new year holiday is over.

I’m on the ZEN3 wagon long ago... actually from Jul7th 2019... “eyes closed”

That only matters if you're gaming with a monitor resolution of 1080P. Also the i3-10100 is tied in performance with the i5-9400.

You aren't ! Well CPU always have some kind of attractiveness to them. People freak out about them while in gaming performance, GPU are much more important. Let say you have 1000$ for your CPU and GPU budget.

Spending 250$ on your CPU and 750$ on GPU will give you way better gaming performance than 750$ on the CPU and 250 on the GPU, it will still beat out also 500$ CPU and 500$ GPU if the resolution isn't too low.


If you aren't doing super high FPS in competitive game at 1080p, cpu aren't that important if you have something good enough.

10600k is a 6700k from 2015 with 6 cores, made on a 2014 process, 14nm.
I know this is what Intel has now and it is basically all-a-foot in deep s**t, but comparing the 5600x with 10600k and saying wow, what a performance boost, is a bit...yeah, sad.
If 5600x was 2x10600k, yeah, then I would be wow, AMD has actually managed to double the performance of Intel's 6 core CPU from 2015 in 5 years.
But they have 7nm, they have the best process manufacturer there is, they have 3 iterations of their magic Zen uarch and all we get is 30% improvement.
Sure, performance per watt has improved a lot, but core to core wise, the improvement is not that stellar.

Did not understand...
I’m not on the ZEN3 wagon?
Or something about common sense?

What you describe after was my point exactly

Im all in, hands and feet, on ZEN3. But not going to suggest it to anyone without details of his/hers goals and existing hardware.
