It appears that AMD’s recently released third-generation Ryzen processor is the real deal as it scored high in a benchmark performed by notorious leakster Apisak.
The processor has a Zen 2 CPU system based on a 7-nanometer producing process. However, most of the shreds of evidence have come straightly from AMD at Computex. The company demonstrated then a Ryzen 9 3900X exceeding an Intel Core i9-9920X.
We will have to see, but until then, some benchmarks ruling in favor of a Ryzen processor have leaked.
Aside from the Ryzen 9 3900X, three other processors were included in the original launch, namely the Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 5 3600. The leak concerned the Ryzen 5 3600 performance.
The Ryzen 5 3600 is a 6-core and 12 thread processor with 3.6GHz base clock and 4.2GHz boost clock. It comes with 32MB of L3 cache, has a 7-nanometer node and supports PCle 4.0 x16.
The leak posted by famous leakster APISAK (@TUM_APISAK) uploaded a few bunches of Geekbench scores, one from pairing the Ryzen 5 2600 with an X570 motherboard, and the second one is from an X470 setup.
The records of both platforms are similar, and they do contrast well with Intel’s Coffee Lake processors. For instance, in a test, a Core i7-8700K manages a 5,699 score in Geekbench’s single-core test, and 23,440 points in the multi-core test. In the meantime, the older version Ryzen 5 2600 manages 4,511 and 20,500 points.
It is pretty evident that the faster clocks on the Ryzen 5 3600 contrasted to the Ryzen 5 2600 are more performant. Even so, the leaked benchmark runs depict a considerable IPC performance increase, from Zen+ to Zen 2.
It appears that AMD has very much an IPC equality with Intel in single-core performance, and eclipse the giant processor maker in multi-core workloads.
