AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8 Core Zen 3 CPU Up To 11% Faster Than Intel Core i9-10900K in CPU-Z Single-Threaded Performance Benchmark


The latest AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Desktop CPU benchmarks have also appeared within CPU-z which show unparalleled amounts of single-threaded benchmark performance gains for the Zen 3 chip against its predecessors and the competition. The CPU-z performance benchmarks along with the validation links were spotted by TUM_APISAK.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8 Core Zen 3 CPU Benchmarks Leaked, 11% Faster Than the Core i9-10900K & 25% Faster Than Its Predecessor in Single-Core Tests

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8 Core Zen 3 CPU is anticipated to be one of the fastest 8 core gaming CPUs within the Ryzen 5000 family. That is being more and more evident with each latest leak & latest numbers show us even bigger performance gains. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was tested on Gigabyte's B550M AORUS PRO motherboard. The memory was configured at DDR4-2348 MHz & timings were maintained at CL17. A total of 32 GB DDR4 capacity was installed on the platform.

In terms of single-core performance, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X scored 650 points which are 11% faster than Intel's Core i9-10900K and a massive 25% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X. Even against the Ryzen 9 3950X, the CPU maintains an average 25% lead. The Intel Core i9-10900K is overall a faster CPU on paper with its 10 cores, 20 threads, and a 5.3 GHz single-core boost clock.

The clock speeds are the more important metric here since only a single-core is used within this specific test. Despite a massive clock speed advantage, the Core i9-10900K doesn't even comes close to the Ryzen 7 5800X. The Zen 3 core architecture really shines in all single-core metrics & overclocking will only yield even better performance.

In multi-core performance tests, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X scored 6593 points which are 18% faster than the Ryzen 7 3800X and 17% faster than the Ryzen 7 3800XT. At the same, the Core i9-10900K takes the lead here with a 10% faster performance in multi-threaded workloads which is only due to its higher number of cores and threads. The 10900K features a 25% higher core & thread count at much higher clocks and power limits but only manage a 10% lead over its main competitor.
