Upcoming Zen 3 based AMD Ryzen 9 5900X finally spotted – Up to 15% faster in multi-threaded & 25% faster in single-threaded tasks over Ryzen 9 3900X
Having spotted the upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X on the Gaming benchmarks recently, it was kind of expected that more new CPUs would be actually be spotted in the coming days. So, finally, the new 12-core AMD CPU has been spotted by @9550pro, who also found its brother CPU.
The CPU-Z screenshot seen is of an unreleased AMD processor with the 100-000000061-08 number. Also there’s the mention of 12 cores and 24 threads which is indeed the next-gen AMD Ryzen 9 5900X based on Zen 3 architecture.
When it comes single-core performance, the alleged CPU scored around 652.8 points in the single-core test that makes it up to 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 3900X.
Whereas, when multi-threaded performance is to be considered, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU seems to score a total of 9481 points which is almost 15% improvement over the Ryzen 9 3900X.
Overall the numbers are great, considering this is a one-generation upgrade, and although we do not have clock speeds, we can guess this time the flagship AMD CPUs will easily cross the 5GHz barrier as per the improved scores. If this is indeed the Ryzen 9 5900X, then AMD lovers, the next-gen AMD CPUs, do look out for October 8th!
