The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X’s single-core performance record has lasted little, specifically three days, and the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X now leads the PassMark benchmark with the fastest CPU on the market in the single-core market with a score of 3,693 points, which translates to beating the Ryzen 5 3600X by 6.9 percent, which is not bad at all.
As a benchmark regarding Intel’s fastest CPU, we have the Intel Core i9-10900K, with a score of 3,176 points to be exact, so we are talking about the AMD CPU being 16.3 percent faster when measured the performance of a single-core, being evident that in multicore it will pulverize the 10 cores of the Intel CPU since the Ryzen 9 5950X offers no less than 16 cores.
To have a better reference, nothing better than to look at the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and its 2,747 points, which means that, compared to its predecessor, we have a performance improvement of no less than 34.4 percent.
