AMD claims single-threaded performance leadership in PassMark with their Ryzen 5 5600X

AMD's Zen 3 architecture and Ryzen 5000 series processors focus on single-threaded performance, offering users a 19% boost in IPC over today's Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. 

With Zen 3, AMD has tackled many of the performance bottlenecks within the older Zen models through fundamental redesigns of several aspects of their core architecture, making the Ryzen 5000 series a gamechanger for AMD within the desktop market. 

PassMark's CPU database has been updated with results from AMD's 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X processor, as first reported by Videocardz. Thanks to the performance of their Ryzen 5 5600X, AMD has claimed performance leadership in PassMark's single-threaded tests, achieving a score of 3,495. For comparison, Intel's i9-10900K scores 3,175. 

Previously, AMD's strongest single-threaded processor in PassMark was their Ryzen 7 3800XT, which scored 2,888. AMD's Ryzen 5 5600X offers a single-threaded performance boost of 21%, showcasing how much AMD's Zen architecture has improved with Zen 3. AMD's Ryzen 5 5600X isn't even AMD's strongest Zen 3 processor in terms of single-threaded performance, as their 5800X, 5900X and 5950X models all feature higher single-threaded boost clock speeds.

With a price tag of $299, AMD's Ryzen 5 5600X will be a compelling product for gamers and an excellent upgrade options for existing Ryzen users. This will be especially true once 400-series motherboards gain support for Zen 3 processors in early 2021.

Intel's CPU boosts to 5Ghz or more, right? So if the 5600X boosts to 4.6Ghz and yet beats the 10900K, that's incredible.Quote

And remember the TDP difference. That makes it even more amazing.Quote

TDP isn't really a good measurement as Intel and AMD measure it differently.

Now if you mean the actual real world results, then yeah it's pretty insane.Quote
