Third-party Cinebench scores for AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X have begun hitting the web ahead of the 6C/12T processor’s release, and they’re as beautiful as expected.

In one result shared by TUM_APISAK, the lowest-tiered Zen 3 CPU managed to hit a single-core score of 258 and multi-core score of 2,040, which puts it above Intel’s 8C/16T Core i7-10700K. That single-core score also happens to be better than what the competition’s flagship 10C/20T Core i9-10900K processor can muster.

Here’s how AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X compares to other popular processors based on Anandtech’s Cinebench benchmarks (1, 2).

Linus Tech Tips forum member Jumper118 has also shared a variety of AMD Ryzen 5 5600X tests performed under Cinebench R11.5, R15, and R20.

In the Cinebench R20 benchmark, the Ryzen 5 5600X achieved a single-core score of 609 and multi-core score of 4,746, which (according to Wccftech’s metrics) would place it comfortably close to the Core i7-10700K and Ryzen 7 3700X in terms of overall performance.
