AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 5 5600X Proves Superior to Intel Core i9-10900K

Last Updated on February 13, 2021 by

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X was a quartet of new “Zen 3” architecture desktop processors announced by the producers at the October beginning. It is still unreleased and under wraps until 5th November. We have the exact information regarding the development, courtesy of the Passmark CPU info page. AM4 has six cores and 12 threads, a boost clock speed of 3.7/4.6 GHz, a TDP of 65W, and an RRR of US$299.

Here is everything we know so far.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 5 5600X: Processors Dominates performance

The PassMark 1T benchmark results show that the supposed AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is nearly 10 percent faster than the Intel challenger. Specific details of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X predicts excellent leads in single-core performance over the Intel Core i9 – 10900K in Passmark and Geekbench 5. The scores seem to indicate between 16% – 20 % benefits in single-core applications for the Ryzen 9 5950X.

The AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Vermeer CPUs have been an interest factor for the people compared to previous generations. The Ryzen 9 5950X is a 16C/32T CPU with a 3.9 GHz base clock and a boost of up to 4.9 GHz. The CPU is scoring about 3,693 points in the test, followed by the Ryzen 5 5600X’s score of 3,455. The Ryzen 9 5950X has managed to outpace the current gaming King of the hill, the Core i9-10900K, which records 3,176 points, by about 16.3%. The Ryzen 9 5950X is around 7% than the Ryzen 5 5600X in the same benchmark.

The Geekbench log reports 5 GHz clock speed, suggesting that AMD’s Precision Boost algorithms have been properly exemplified. The processor of Ryzen 5 5600X reported a single-core score of 1,700 and a multi-core score of 14,018. This marks a 20% increase in single-core and 26% increase in multi-core performance than the Core i9-10900K.

With such significant leads, AMD may have finally surpassed Intel in single-core tests. These tests show a trend wherein AMD CPUs can stand to be used as the default gaming CPU in gaming benchmarks and upcoming GPU. Although if it is supposedly based on a Willow Cove backport, Rocket Lake-S could outshine at 8 cores and 16 threads.

The new Zen 3 Vermeer CPUs are still no match for the Ryzen Threadrippers in terms of multi-threaded performances. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX leads the team with  88,673 points, whereas the Ryzen 9 5950X is considered the best to the 16C/32T Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX by 8%.  A 16% improvement over the Ryzen 9 3950X, suggesting a decent improvement.

Thus, the AMD Ryzen quartet is expected to be a success among the gamer section in the latter days in the meantime.
