The Red team’s latest Ryzen 5000 series processors are based on the revolutionary Zen 3 architecture that promises a great performance uplift up to 26% on the gaming front. This is due to the incredible feat achieved due to the great single-core performance.
These new processors have a new design and a new cache implementation that has helped these chiplets to gain a maximum fast cache memory. All of the processors, be it the budget Ryzen 5 5600X or the mid-range Ryzen 7 5800X, all of these CPUs have gained healthy IPC uplifts.
Although there’s not much gain in multi-core scores, the single-core benchmarks can put Intel to dust. The mid-range Ryzen 7 5800X is scoring about 650 points in single-core tests as per the reliable leaker @TUM_APISAK, which puts the new 8-core CPU above the stack beating the top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-10900K by 11%.
Whereas, the budget Ryzen 5 5600X is the sweet spot because this CPU also beats Intel’s current best offering with 643 points. This should really help in gaming because it’s still very single-core bound, and even if multi-core performance is taken into account, no one can beat AMD.
Coming to shelves on November 5th, the new Ryzen 5000 series is the best offering from AMD for gamers, honestly, and even I am excited to get hands-on it!
