In Cinebench R23 we see an 11% performance improvement with the Ryzen 5 5600X versus the Ryzen 5 3600X. They have the same core count and thread count, so these advantages are mostly down to architecture improvements. PBO does not add much here.
The big advantage once again is in the single-thread performance. In Cinebench R23 single-core testing the Ryzen 5 5600X is 18% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X, showing its impressive IPC improvement. Even PBO here adds an additional 3% performance.
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. The Ryzen 5 5600X does improve the render time, technically, but it is very small for the bmw27 scene. It’s really small, and for this scene, you won’t notice the difference.
That changes a bit more in the classroom scene, we are saving almost a full minute off the rendering time. Therefore, the longer the render time, the more the Ryzen 5 5600X will benefit over the Ryzen 5 3600X.
Similar to the bmw27 scene, here in Blender the Ryzen 5 5600X in pavillon_barcelona doesn’t appear to be that advantageous over the Ryzen 5 3600X. It barely affects render time, so far the classroom scene showed the most benefit.
The victor scene in Blender by far shows the largest advantage, and it is a much longer render. We see a 7% performance advantage with the Ryzen 7 5600X versus the Ryzen 5 3600X here, saving us almost 2 minutes of render time. In something that takes a long time to render, the Ryzen 5 5600X will help more, the longer the render, the better it provides an advantage. If you can save a few minutes off your render, it can add up.
In V-Ray 5 we see a larger advantage than with Blender, here the Ryzen 5 5600X is 13% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X, so it does improve rendering time a noticeable amount in V-Ray.
The Ryzen 5 5600X does improve upon transcoding or exporting/rendering time when it comes to video. The Ryzen 5 5600X improves upon exporting this video by 10%, which is a noticeable reduction in the time for encoding. We shaved more than a minute off the render time, so imagine if this is a very long video, 30 minutes, or hours long, that’s a noticeable amount of time saved.
