Two ‘early’ reviews of the soon to be released AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X CPUs show impressive performance gains using the Zen 3 architecture over its predecessor, Zen 2, according to SiSoftware.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X would have higher performance than Intel Core i9-9900k
SiSoftware this week released performance evaluations of the two Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, showing an improvement in the range of 15 to 40% over the previous generation Ryzen 5 3600X for the Ryzen 5 5600X and an improvement of approximately 25 to 40% for the Ryzen 7 5800X over the Ryzen 7 3700X .
We don’t know if SiSoftware was in possession of review units of the CPUs themselves, or was adding data from others who were benchmarking CPUs using the software.
In testing, the six-core Ryzen 5 5600X was apparently able to beat Intel’s eight-core Core i9-9900k , which would be a huge win for the red team.
SiSoftware also described the performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X and compared it to the Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core Zen 2 chip. “We certainly didn’t expect the performance to be that good,” said the developer.
We haven’t tested AMD’s new CPUs ourselves, so it remains to be seen if these numbers hold up, but if they do, the Red Team will have emerged victorious in their battle with rival Intel.
