AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core Zen 3 CPU Demolishes The Intel Core i5-10600K In Cinebench Benchmark, Almost As Fast As Ryzen 7 3700X


The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core Desktop CPU has been benchmarked within Cinebench R15 and it looks like the competition is going to be put down once and for all. The numbers were posted by TUM_APISAK over at Twitter and show the multi-threading performance of AMD's mainstream & 6 core processor which launches this week.

AMD's Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core "Zen 3" CPU Benchmarked in Cinebench, Up To 42% Faster Multi-Threading and 25% Faster Single-Core Performance Than Intel's Core i5-10600K

The benchmark shows the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, which was running at overclocked speeds of 4.7 GHz across all of its 6 cores, post a score of 2040 points in multi-threading and 258 points in the single-threaded tests. The test platform was running DDR4 memory at 3200 MHz (CL14 timings) with an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII HERO motherboard. The voltage was set to 1.256V for this test run.

For comparison (using Anandtech's numbers), the Intel Core i5-10600K  scores 1428 points in multi-threaded and 206 points in single-threaded workloads. The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X scores 2112 points in multi & 204 points in single-thread benchmarks. The Intel Core i7-10700K posts 2005 points in multi-thread & a score of 217 points in single-core tests. Meanwhile the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X scores 1639 points in multi and 210 points in single-core tests.

Based on these benchmark numbers, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is 42% faster in multi-threading and 25% faster in single-core performance than the Intel Core i5-10600K which runs at faster clocks & also features a higher TDP of 125W versus AMD's 65W TDP. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is also up to 25% faster in multi-threading and 22% faster in single-core tests versus its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 3600XT. The CPU also comes in faster than the Intel Core i7-10700K which is an 8 core processor while the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X has a slight lead over it.
