AIDA64 CPU and Memory

Memory Read

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X vs Ryzen 5 3600X Performance AIDA64 Memory Read

The memory is running at DDR4-3600 CL16 on both CPUs, and we see identical performance between the CPUs on memory read performance at around 50GB/s.

Memory Write

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X vs Ryzen 5 3600X Performance AIDA64 Memory Write

The same is also true on memory write performance, both CPUs are pulling 28GB/s of memory write speeds at the same memory frequency and timings.

CPU Queen

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X vs Ryzen 5 3600X Performance AIDA64 CPU Queen

The CPU Queen test is an integer benchmark that focuses on branch prediction and misprediction penalties.  It is multi-threading aware. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is 8% faster than the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X in this simple integer benchmark test. PBO barely adds performance here.

AES

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X vs Ryzen 5 3600X Performance AIDA64 CPU AES

Here is the definition from AIDA64 of what this test does exactly, scroll down to AES. In very complex AES encryption, the Zen 3 architecture has huge gains over Zen 2. We see the newer Ryzen 5 5600X perform a whopping 90% higher than the previous generation Ryzen 5 3600X, this is monstrous. We also saw this with the Ryzen 7 3700X versus Ryzen 7 5800X, with the Ryzen 7 5800X being 100% faster in this test compared to the Ryzen 7 3700X.

SHA3

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X vs Ryzen 5 3600X Performance AIDA64 CPU SHA3

Here is the definition from AIDA64 of what this test does exactly. In SHA3 the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has improved upon the Ryzen 5 3600X by 33% here, again showing a big boost for the newer CPU.

Cache and Memory Benchmark

If you would like to compare the L1, L2, and L3 cache performance and latencies, we will show the screenshots from AIDA64’s Cache and Memory Benchmark below.

  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)..
