In Cinebench R23 multi-core performance the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is up 25% in performance compared to the Ryzen 7 3700X. This is impressive considering both have the same core and thread count. Turning on PBO is negligible.
Single-core Cinebench R23 performance is up 22% with the Ryzen 7 5800X versus the Ryzen 7 3700X. Similar to previous single-core testing, turning on PBO actually does make a bigger difference for performance, up 2% here.
Blender Open Data Benchmark
Remember, here we are looking for the lowest result. The less time it takes to render, the fastest it is, and the better you’ll be. Both CPUs have the same core and thread count, so it is exciting to see that the Ryzen 7 5800X is 22% quicker at rendering the bmw27 scene in Blender.
In the classroom scene, the Ryzen 7 5800X renders it 21% quicker than the Ryzen 7 3700X.
In the pavillon_barcelona scene, the Ryzen 7 5800X renders it 20% quicker than the Ryzen 7 3700X.
In victor we see the Ryzen 7 5800X render the scene 21% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X. These are all significant performance improvements for rendering. We even see PBO make it just a bit faster in victor.
V-Ray 5 is another great example of how much faster Zen 3 is at rendering compared to Zen 2. The Ryzen 7 5800X is a whopping 30% faster in V-Ray CPU performance producing 11,759 vsamples compared to the Ryzen 7 3700X at 9,021 vsamples. Turning on PBO adds just a little bit more performance.
Lastly, we used HandBrake to transcode a video on the CPU in H.264. Transcoding video is definitely faster on the Ryzen 7 5800X, a full minute is shaved off, or 14% faster transcoding performance for video. Imagine an hour-long or more video, that’s a decent amount of time saved with the faster Ryzen 7 5800X.
