AMD is all over the news with powerful processors and its sudden rise in quarter three earnings. But now it seems that the companies upcoming processors the AMD Ryzen 5000 based on the Zen 3 architecture process is garnering everyone’s attention.
The Ryzen 9 5950X is a 16C/32T CPU with a base clock of 3.9 GHz and a boost clock of up to 4.9 GHz. The single-thread performance of the 5950X in PassMark benchmark shows the CPU scoring about 3,693 points in the test, and the Ryzen 5 5600X’s score was 3,455. The Ryzen 9 5950X managed to outpace the current ruler of gaming processors, the Core i9-10900K, which also score 3,176 points, and the margin of gain is about 16.3%.
When it comes to multi-threaded performance, the new Zen 3 CPUs still pale in comparison against the Ryzen Threadrippers. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX scored a massive 88,673 points with the Ryzen 9 5950X only outperforming the 16C/32T Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX by 8%. But when everything is said and done, it is still praiseworthy that we see a 16% improvement over the Ryzen 9 3950X.
If we compare Geekbench 5 ratings, then the Ryzen 9 5950X reported a single-core score of 1,700 and a multi-core score of 14,018. This is a 20% increase in single-core and 26% increase in multi-core performance compared with Core i9-10900K. The Geekbench ratings also reported a massive clock speed of around 5 GHz.
It looks like AMD is finally ready to take down Intel with such leads in terms of single-core tests. While these results should still be taken with plenty of water, they show that the AMD CPUs will soon stand to be used as the default gaming CPU in the future machines
AMD’s processors are already being adopted by the likes of Apple and supercomputer LUMI. Soon, we think there will be a new king in the semiconductor market.
