CPU Processing Benchmarks
Now it is time to look at the CPU processing benchmarks. These are benchmarks that test the arithmetic performance of the CPUs in both integer and floating point.
We are using SiSoftware Sandra version 2020.5.30.41 for benchmarking. We are going to use the Processor Arithmetic test to test Dhrystone and Whetstone performance. This tests the arithmetic and floating-point performance of the CPUs. The results are in GFLOPS.
In this first graph, we are looking at integer performance Dhrystone. According to this test, the Intel Core i5-10600K is 5% faster at integer arithmetic than the Ryzen 5 3600X. The new Core i5-10600K is a whopping 37% faster than the Intel Core i5-9600K. This really shows the advantage of Hyperthreading and having more threads to run maths.
In this graph, we are comparing the floating-point Whetstone performance. This is where the Ryzen 5 3600X redeems itself, it is very strong in floating-point operations. It is now on par with the Intel Core i5-10600K in float. The Intel Core i5-9600K is left far, far behind. So, in the previous generation, the Ryzen 5 3600X was really beating the 9600K in float performance, but now with the Intel Core i5-10600K, it is giving the Ryzen 5 3600X some real competition!
Our next test is Aida64 version 6.25.5400. We are running the CPU Queen test, which is mixed-integer testing.
In this test, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X is just over the Intel Core i5-10600K performance, but the Intel i5-10600K is a huge improvement over the Intel Core i5-9600K.
In this test we are running the FPU Mandel test, which tests floating-point performance. We find the Ryzen 5 3600X performing 6% faster than the Intel Core i5-10600K.
