AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X “Zen 3” CPUs Benchmarked, Much Faster Than Their Ryzen 3000 Predecessors
The latest benchmarks of AMD's Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop CPUs have appeared in SiSoftware database which includes the Zen 3 based Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and Ryzen 7 5800X. All three CPUs were tested in the benchmark and show vast improvement over their predecessors based on the Zen 2 core architecture.
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X Zen 3 Desktop CPUs Benchmarked - Much Faster Than Their Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 Predecessors
Just yesterday, we were talking about how the AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs had appeared on online retailers including Amazon from Preorders. Now the same chips have been benchmarked within the SiSoftware database, giving us a better look at the general performance improvements that they carry over their Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000 predecessors. The benchmarks were spotted by TUM_APISAK.
It looks like all three CPUs were tested by the same source since they were tested on an MSI MEG X570 Unify motherboard. There are two tests in which the performance was measured between the Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs. These include the Processor Arithmetic (GOPS) and Processor Multi-Media (Mpix/s) tests. The benchmarks were compiled into charts by Harukaze5719 which gives us a much better comparison between the Ryzen 5000 CPUs & each of its Ryzen 3000 predecessors.
For the processor arithmetic tests, the Ryzen 9 5950X is around 9% faster than the Ryzen 9 3950X, the Ryzen 9 5900X is around 18% faster than the Ryzen 9 3900X while the Ryzen 7 5800X is around 20% faster than the Ryzen 7 3800X. The 10-20% average improvement in arithmetic tests shows the stronger IPC lead for Ryzen 5000 CPUs over the last-gen Ryzen 3000 lineup.
Moving over to the processor multi-media (Mpix/s) tests, here we see a vast improvement in CPU performance. The Ryzen 9 5950X is 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 3950X, the Ryzen 9 5900X is up to 35% faster than the Ryzen 9 3900X and even outpaces the Ryzen 9 3950X. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is a massive 42% ahead of its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 3800X, and even comes close to the 12 core Ryzen 9 3900X.
