Early third-party benchmarks for the Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and Ryzen 5 5600X published by Brazilian YouTube channel Pichau seem to support that theory, but they also suggest that Intel remains king in certain games.
You can see how AMD’s Zen 3 lineup compares with Intel’s Core i9-10900K below. While red team’s CPUs rank first for the majority of titles, Intel’s Core i9-10900K manages to best them considerably in games such as Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Polish site IT Hardware has also published a variety of benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. Thirteen games were tested, but it slips behind Intel’s Core i9-10850K in average performance.
AMD says that its Zen 3 processors have the highest single-thread performance of any desktop gaming processor, as well as the most multi-core performance of any desktop gaming processor and any desktop processor in a mainstream CPU socket.
The Ryzen 9 5950X ($799), Ryzen 9 5900X ($549), Ryzen 7 5800X ($449), and Ryzen 5 5600X ($299) are available beginning today.
