AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Desktop CPUs Faster Than Intel 10th Gen Core Lineup In Leaked Gaming Benchmarks
AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Desktop CPU's gaming performance benchmarks have leaked ahead of their launch today by YouTuber, Pichau. The benchmarks show the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and the Ryzen 5 5600X sitting comfortably ahead of their Intel 10th Generation rivals in a range of gaming titles.
AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Desktop CPUs Destroy Intel 10th Gen Lineup in Leaked Gaming Benchmarks
The benchmarks were carried out on similar test platforms which featured the three AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs, Intel's Core i9-10900K 10 Core CPU (stock & overclock), and the Ryzen 5 3600 XT Zen 2 Desktop CPU. The test platform consisted of 16 GB of DDR4-3600 MHz (Team group T-Force) memory, a 1 TB CARDEA Z440 SSD, a 1050W Fonte PSU, and the respective B550 and Z490 motherboards for each processor. The processors were tested with a GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card.
Coming straight to the tests, there are a total of 15 titles that were tested at a resolution of 1080p. In almost all titles, the AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs, even the Ryzen 5 5600X, were able to out-perform Intel's Core i9-10900K and that too at overclocked speeds of 5.0 GHz. The only exceptions were GTA V, Red Dead Redemption II, and Strange Brigade in which the Intel Core i9-10900K beat all three Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs with huge margins.
AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPU vs Intel Core i9-10900K Game Performance Tests:
Following is the 15 game average from the tests published by the tech outlet:
AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs 15 Game Average (Pichau)
|Average FPS||1% Low FPS||Average||1% Low|
|Ryzen 5900X (Stock)||184||103||107%||101%|
|Core i9-10900K (OC 5 Ghz)||177||102||103%||100%|
|Core i9-10900K (Stock)||172||102||100%||100%|
|Ryzen 5800X (Stock)||184||101||107%||99%|
|Ryzen 5600X (Stock)||181||100||105%||98%|
|Ryzen 3600X (Stock)||157||94||91%||92%|
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Core Zen 3 Desktop CPU Full Review Leaks Out Too
In addition to the gaming performance results, the first review of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Zen 3 CPU has also leaked out by ITHardware (via Videocardz). The site claims to have a sample of the chip but no CPU was shown. The CPU was tested on an MSI MEG X570 ACE motherboard which was equipped with 32 GB of DDR4-3600 MHz memory along with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.
In terms of overclocking, the CPU was pushed to a stable overclock of 4.8 GHz with 1.275V. We already saw the CPU running at 4.75 GHz on air cooling and 4.85 GHz on water-cooling yesterday. The CPU was unable to hit 4.9 GHz which might be the limit for the 6 core chip since it was also being pumped with 1.4 Volts.
Before moving to the performance results, the Tech outlet also carried out temperature & power measurements for the CPU. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X runs much cooler than the Ryzen 5 3600X & sees a temperature reduction of 14C over its predecessor. When overclocked, the CPU is 9C hotter than the stock Ryzen 5 3600X and 2C hotter than an overclocked Ryzen 5 3600X. We should also keep in mind that the Ryzen 5 3600X didn't have as much of an overclocking headroom as the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU Temperatures:
Power numbers see a 20-25W drop over the Ryzen 5 3600X while overclocking leads to 40W higher power consumption than a stock and 20W higher power consumption than an overclocked Ryzen 5 3600X CPU.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU Power Figures:
Coming to the gaming performance benchmarks, we see a repeat of what we saw in the leaked gaming numbers above. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is on par with the Intel Core i9-10850K, a 5GHz+ processor in the majority of titles, and even outperforms it in CS: GO, Battlefield 1 and World of Tanks and 1080p resolution. The CPU is significantly ahead of the Core i5-10400F and the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X which is absolutely amazing.
