AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Benchmarks – 4 CPU’s gaming & productivity performance stats

The wait is over!! AMD’s most awaited Ryzen 5000 series processors were out in the market and are available starting from 5th November, as promised by the company in their launch event. Our testing team has already had their hands on the new AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs and a detailed review is underway. For those curious bees out there, we would wish to share a few benchmarking performances figures beforehand. The time has finally come to find out if the hype for the Ryzen 5000 is real, let’s roll!

We have documented the benchmarks separately for each processor in the 5000 series. The test bench we have built is different for each processor and the configuration is listed down.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Benchmarks of Ryzen 9 5950X, 5900X, 5800X, 5600X.

On the prospect of AMD Ryzen 5000 series benchmark test results, we think that it would make absolute sense to mention a few of our observations with the new AMD Ryzen 5000 series. The first of which is with the Zen 3 architecture. In the previous Ryzen CPU chips, there were 4 cores sharing 16MB of cache while the other 4 cores sharing another 16MB of cache. This architecture introduces more latency in the overall operation. To address this, AMD came up with a clever solution of integrating the total 32MB of cache into a single chip. This significantly improves latency. Another biggest improvement is in the IPC with an increment of about 19% compared to their previous generation while still keeping the TDP at 105W.

What hasn’t changed is the platform. It is on the AM4 socket and is compatible with a lot of AMD 400 and 500 series MOBOs. If you have one of those motherboards already, popping in a replacement CPU is a lot easier and can be cost-effective. However, you will have to go through a not so uncomplicated process of flashing your older motherboard with the latest supported BIOS. There are a lot of guides online to help you with this. With that said, let’s roll in.

AMD Ryzen 5000 series Benchmarks and Specs

As far as the design technology goes, the AMD Zen 3 processors are based on the same 7nm manufacturing process as that of the previous-gen Ryzen 3000 chips that were released into markets last year. AMD’s intent is clear, it wants to boost IPC performance which in turn improves single-core performance. As the single-core performance is one area that AMD lacks compared to Intel with their previous generation processors. As per what AMD claims, there is a significant improvement in the overall performance compared to their previous-gen processors.

We tried running a few games to check if the improvements are indeed real, the results just blew our mind. Here we go!

Our Testbench Setup –

As we are going to test all monsters from the AMD Zen 3 line-up, we would wish to go a little more extensive with our test bench setup that includes ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero Wi-Fi for the motherboard, with two sticks of G. SKILL DDR4-3600 RAM of 8 GB each, Noctua NH-D15 cooler, 1TB Corsair Force MP600 and finally, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 FE Graphics Card. For the testing purpose, we made use of the Windows 10 Operating System running the October 27, 2020 patch.
