The AMD Ryzen 5000 processors will go on sale today, November 5, the same day that the NDA for the processors will be lifted. This will allow you to see the performance of these CPUs well. Although a lot of them bend to the embargo, some cannot stand it and publish their reviews before.
That said, AMD’s newest processor, the Ryzen 5 5600X, was installed on an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero board, along with 16GB of Patriot Viper DDR4-3800 (CL14) memory and a simple air cooler. Out of the box, the Ryzen 5 5600X boosts up to 4.6GHz, but with a few tweaks it can hit 4.85GHz across all CPU cores.
Once the Ryzen 5 5600X was overclocked, it outperformed the Ryzen 7 3700X (8C / 16T) in the multi-core benchmarks in Cinebench R15, and also the Intel Core i7-10700K. In Cinebench R20, the results are a bit tighter: the overclocked Ryzen 5 5600X still reigns supreme against the Intel Core i7-10700K and AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processors.
We leave you the video so you can see more of how this CPU works:
