AMD’s Zen 3 Powered Ryzen 5 5600X $299 CPU Is Now The Fastest Single-Threaded Chip In Passmark
AMD's Zen 3 architecture brings a massive improvement to IPC and that is reflected in the latest PassMark benchmark list where the Ryzen 5 5600X CPU has just claimed the top position in the single-threaded performance charts.
AMD. Not Intel, Is Now The Single-Threaded Performance Champ - Ryzen 5 5600X $299 "Zen 3" CPU Claims Top Position in PassMark
Spotted by Videocardz, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X "Zen 3" Desktop CPU now holds the top position in the PassMark single-threaded benchmark list. The CPU which is going to be positioned against the Intel Core i5-10600K exceeds the single-threaded performance of the Core i9-10900K which is very impressive.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU scores 3495 points in the said benchmark versus the 3177 points of the Intel Core i9-10900K, representing a lead of 10%. Compared to its predecessor, the 3600XT, and the 3600X, the Ryzen 5 5600X scores a 23-24% lead while compared to its competition, the Core i5-10600K, the chip scores a lead of 22%.
Sure the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is going to be priced $50 US more than its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 3600X / Ryzen 5 3600XT but at the same time, the CPU will deliver much higher performance in both single and multi-threaded workloads while being more efficient. We can see a performance jump in gaming as a direct result of the improved single-threaded performance which would give even Intel's top Core i7 and Core i9 CPUs a run for its money. We can expect the Ryzen 5 5600X to carry the same legacy as its predecessor which is one of AMD's most successful mainstream CPU to date.
