We already know that AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series is the town’s buzz and has the community going wild because it reportedly clocks higher than Intel’s Core- i9 processors.
According to SiSoftware, the 6-core Zen 3 CPU is 15% to 40% faster than Zen 2 Ryzen 5 3600X, while the 8-core 5800X is 25 to 40% faster than its 3700X.
The Ryzen 5 5600X was even able to overtake 8-core Intel i9-9900K processors, which is a massive win since the 9900K is the leader in gaming CPUs. The Ryzen 7 5800X for its 8-core Zen3 CPU performs like a 12-core Zen2 CPU, such as the Ryzen 9 3900X, leaving 10900K behind in the dust.
SiSoftware conluded its reported on Ryzen 5 5600X with the following details:
Zen3 (6-core) is ~15-40% faster than Zen2 across all kinds of algorithms and gave it a 9/10 rating. “Despite no major architectural changes (except larger 8-core CCX layout and thus unified L3 cache) over Zen2 – Zen3 manages to be quite a bit faster across legacy and heavily vectorized SIMD algorithms, though in the case of the 6-core (aka 5600X) due to its almost identical Turbo compared to old Zen2 (3600XT) it cannot beat it so soundly as the other siblings have as we’ve seen in the other reviews. The Zen2 XTs performance is just too good!”
SiSoftware conluded its reported on Ryzen 7 5800X with the following details:
Zen3 is ~25-40% faster than Zen2 across all kinds of algorithms. The benchmark website offered the processor a whooping of 10/10!
“Despite no major architectural changes (except larger 8-core CCX layout and thus unified L3 cache) over Zen2 – Zen3 manages to be quite a bit faster across legacy and heavily vectorized SIMD algorithms, naturally also soundly beating the competition even with AVX512 and more cores (e.g., 10-core SKL-X). Even streaming algorithms (memory-bound) improve over 20%. We certainly did not expect performance to be this good.”
We already know that AMD purchased the chipmaker Xilinx with a $35 Billion deal and hence stands to become yet more powerful in the coming years. Intel needs to be aware of AMD’s increasing growth if it wants to protect its dominance in the semiconductor market.
