As with everything, leaked benchmarks of specific AMD Ryzen 5000 series is conveniently leaked and compared with its competitor. Its no different when prolific leakers have posted a screenshot of SiSoftware Sandra benchmark, putting the Ryzen 5 5600X. Both the benchmarks were spotted by @TUM_APISAK. @harukaze5719 aggregated the benchmark between all the Ryzen 5000 CPUs with Ryzen 9 3950X and the Ryzen 7 3900X.
The Ryzen 5 5600X looks like a good mid-performer on paper. Every leak should be taken with some amount of salt, even though near launch leaks tend to be more accurate. In this case, both CPUs benchmarks are authenticated and listed in the Utility’s benchmark. SiSoftware benchmark provides the options to have your tests listed on its website. Both the R9 5950X and R5 5600X were tested on the MSI MEG X570 Unify motherboards which I suspect was tested by the same Anonymous leaker. So most likely both of these CPUs are tested in the same setting and components.
Comparative Benchmarks from SiSoftware database
Compared to the previous Ryzen 3000 series SKUs, most of the benchmark indicated 25-41% improvement on the multimedia test., while Arithmetic shows incremental boost. But all this improvement with a 65W TDP is nothing short of impressive, especially on the Ryzen 9 5950X. While the Ryzen 5000 are 7nm FinFET just like the previous one, AMD made some improvements along the way.
Once the reviewers put up the reviews, we’ll know where these processors stand. But we know the Ryzen 5000 will be supported on the AMD 400 series and the 500 series. These CPUs are expected to be ready for purchase on November 5th. Ubisoft’s Far Cry 6 is also bundled with Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 CPUs. But AMD is having a Ryzen 5000 series live stream on the launch date. You can register for it over here.
