HXL has shared the first purported CPU-Z scores for AMD’s upcoming 12C/24T Zen 3 processor, the Ryzen 9 5900X. While the clock speeds are unknown, the chip scored 652.8 points in the single-threaded benchmark and 9481.8 points in the multi-threaded benchmark, which is very impressive.

According to VideoCardz and Wccftech’s coverage, that’s about 25 percent and 16 percent better than a Ryzen 9 3900X in single-threaded and multi-threaded performance, respectively. The Ryzen 9 5900X’s multi-threaded score is also a mind-blowing 75 percent improvement over the Ryzen 7 3700X.

We’re not sure how legit the CPU-Z screenshot is, but the OPN numbers appear to line up pretty well with information that was published by Igor’s Lab in August. He previously shared two alleged Ryzen 9 OPNs: 100-000000065-04_46/36_Y and 100-000000061-06_49/37_Y. The OPN listed in the CPU-Z screenshot is 100-000000061-08.

AMD’s Zen 3 event is only eight days away, so it won’t be long until we learn everything there is to know about the Ryzen 5000 Series stack.
