Application Benchmarks – Part 1
In PCMark 10’s standard benchmark the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X scores 7218 while Ryzen 5 3600 scores 7002. That is only a 3% advantage toward the Ryzen 5 3600X. Overall, that’s a very small system performance difference.
In this next test, we are running the Application Test. This tests Microsoft Office performance, for this one we are using Office 2019 updated to the latest build. The Ryzen 5 3600X scores 11565 while Ryzen 5 3600 scores 11125. That is a 4% advantage to the 3600X. This means in MS Office the 3600X will have a small 4% performance advantage, which is really not noticeable.
In Geekbench 5’s performance graph above we are looking at the Multi-Thread score first. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X scored 7404 while the Ryzen 5 3600 scores 7176. That is a 3% advantage to the Ryzen 5 3660X in Multi-Threading performance. Both CPUs have the same cores/threads and the same caches, so only the clock speed improvement on the 3600X makes a difference here, and that difference is 3%.
In the graph above we are now testing Single-Thread performance. The Ryzen 5 3600X scored 1332 and the Ryzen 5 3600 scores 1266. That is a 5% performance advantage to the Ryzen 5 3600X Single-Thread performance. The IPC is the same between the CPUs, but the faster clock speed on the 3600X allows for a 5% advantage to single-core performance.
SiSoftware Sandra 2020
In this graph we are comparing the SiSoftware Sandra Dhrystone performance which focuses on integer performance. The Ryzen 5 3600X scores 297.5 GFLOPS while the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 scores 287.4 GFLOPS. That is a 4% performance advantage to the Ryzen 5 3600X.
Now we are looking at Whetstone performance which is floating-point. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X scores 163.7 GFLOPS while the Ryzen 5 3600 scores 158.5 GFLOPS. That is a 3% performance increase for the Ryzen 5 3600X.
In WinRAR we ran the built-in benchmark, the Ryzen 5 3600X scores 22859 KB/s while the Ryzen 5 3600 scores 22395 KB/s. That is only a 2% advantage to the Ryzen 5 3600X.
