During last week’s Zen 3 event, AMD suggested that its flagship Ryzen 5000 Series processor would be eating Intel’s for breakfast in both gaming and content creation. While those claims were strictly in-house (i.e., subject to shenanigans), we now have third-party metrics that suggest red team’s performance data is on point.
The first Cinebench R20 benchmarks for the Ryzen 9 5950X can be found on CPU Monkey (via Guru 3D), and they are definitely above and beyond what Intel’s flagship can muster. In the single-core test, AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X scored 604, while the Core i9-10900KF only managed 539 (11 percent difference).
The multi-core test was also (unsurprisingly) in AMD’s favor, as its 16C/32T beast managed to achieve a score of 10,360. In comparison, Intel’s 10C/20T Core i9-10900KF only hit 6,399 (47 percent difference).
You can check out the rest of the comparisons below. AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X (and the rest of the Ryzen 5000 Series lineup) will be released on November 5.
