A new benchmark for AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X has surfaced on PassMark. While the margin for error is high due to the single sample size, the result provides insight on what red team’s lower-ended Zen 3 model might be capable of.

AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X is listed with an average CPU Mark score of 22,824, a single-thread rating of 3,495, and a cross-platform rating of 44,089.

That single-thread rating makes the Ryzen 5 5600X the fastest processor in terms of single-thread performance on PassMark, besting Intel’s Core i9-10900K’s 3,177 score, as well as many of its Zen 2 predecessors. These include the Ryzen 7 3800XT (2,888) and Ryzen 5 3600XT (2,833).

In terms of overall performance, AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X also narrowly defeats the Ryzen 7 3700X. That procesor has an average CPU Mark score of 22,811, a single-thread rating of 2,688, and a cross-platform rating of 42,760.

While the Ryzen 7 3700X debuted at a suggested price of $329, the Ryzen 5 5600X will be released on November 5 for only $299.
