AMD Ryzen 5 5600X vs Ryzen 5 3600X Performance SiSoftware Sandra 2021 Dhrystone Aggregated-int Native Multi-Threaded

We are now testing in the popular SiSoftware Sandra 2021 version.  We are testing the CPU arithmetic section.  In this graph above we are looking at Dhrystone integer performance in multi-threading. We find that the newer Ryzen 5 5600X has improved upon integer performance in multi-threading by 6% over the Ryzen 5 3600X. PBO adds 1% more performance.

In this graph, we are now looking at the Whetstone floating-point performance in multi-threading. In floating-point performance, the Ryzen 5 5600X improves upon the Ryzen 5 3600X by 15%. This is much higher than the integer performance, showing that the Zen 3 architecture is much improved for floating-point. PBO doesn’t add much performance here.

Now we are looking at Dhrystone integer performance again, but this time on a single thread. Single-thread performance is where the new Ryze 5 5600X rocks, with 24% better integer performance in single-threaded performance versus Ryzen 5 3600X. PBO adds 1% more performance.

Now the best of both worlds, in single-threaded performance, and floating-point, the Ryzen 5 5600X is 18% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X. This shows how well the single-threaded performance IPC is improved, plus the floating-point.

  1. Nice article Brent!

    I assume my 2700x is same or worse than the 3600x, so a 5600x would be an upgrade… I just haven’t had the cpu power need lately (and I’m broke… home repairs)

    I would think you’d enjoy the IPC gains across the 2 generations. You’d lose 2 cores but gain all that IPC performance (and memory performance)..
