AMD's Zen 3 architecture CPU 'Ryzen 5000' series finally released, a comparative review with Intel's 10th generation Core i9 appeared

On November 5, 2020, AMD launched the

Ryzen 5000 series of CPUs with the Zen 3 architecture . IT news site Ars Technica has announced that AMD itself is 'the best gaming CPU in the world' about the top models Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X , with the previous generation Zen 2 architecture CPU Ryzen 9 3900XT At the time of writing the article, we have released the result of the review comparing with the Core i9-10900K of the Comet Lake-S series which is the current latest generation of Intel.

The composition of the benchmark by Ars Technica is as follows

CPU Ryzen 9 5950X
Ryzen 9 5900X
Ryzen 9 3900XT
Motherboard ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero
OS Windows 10 Professional
memory CORSAIR DDR4-3200MHz
GPU MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Super
storage Samsung 860 Pro 1TB SSD
Power supply EVGA SuperNOVA 850 Ga (850W)

◆ Multi-thread performance
The results of multithread performance comparison by Cinebench Release 20 are as follows. Ryzen 9 5950X, the top model with 16 cores and 32 threads, recorded the highest score. Next, the Ryzen 9 5900X with 12 cores and 24 threads, the previous generation Ryzen 9 3900XT with 12 cores and 24 threads, and the Core i9-10900K with 10 cores and 20 threads had the lowest scores.

This is the result of multithread performance comparison by

Passmark .

And the result of multithread performance comparison by

Geekbench 5 looks like this. The score of Ryzen 9 5950X is about 1.4 times that of Ryzen 9 3900XT and about 1.5 to 1.8 times that of Core i9-10900K in all benchmark tests.

◆ Single thread performance
The single thread performance comparison result by Cinebench Release 20 looks like this. Ryzen 9 5950 X and Ryzen 9 5900 X have the same score. And the previous generation Ryzen 9 3900XT released in July 2020 and the Core i9-10900K released in May 2020 had almost the same score.

In terms of single-thread performance by Passmark, the Core i9-10900K scores about 10% higher than the Ryzen 9 3900XT. ..

And even with the single thread performance of Geekbench 5, the Core i9-10900K slightly outperforms the Ryzen 9 3900XT. However, the Ryzen 5000 series has outperformed the Core i9-10900K in any benchmark test, demonstrating the evolution of the Zen 3 architecture CPU. Ars Technica said, 'AMD's claim in the announcement was firmly supported.'

◆ Gaming performance

In 3DMark 's TimeSpy test, almost parallel, Intel Core i9-10900K has the highest score.

On the other hand, the results of the Time Spy Extreme test, which targets CPUs with 4K resolution and 8 cores or more and has a higher GPU load, are as follows. Two of the Ryzen 5000 series score higher than the Ryzen 9 3900XT and Core i9-10900K. Ars Technica said, 'Time Spy Extreme models 4k gaming performance, allowing you to take advantage of more cores and more advanced CPU instructions than Time Spy. The Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X are the previous generation Ryzen 9 It offers healthy leads that surpass both the 3900XT and the Intel i9-10900K. '

◆ Power consumption
In the graph below, the top is the power consumption during standby, and the bottom is the power consumption when running Cinebench Release 20. The standby power consumption of the Ryzen 5000 series has increased by about 10W compared to the previous generation CPU, but this is not due to the CPU origin, but due to the BIOS upgrade of the ASUS motherboard

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero used for the benchmark. Pointing out the possibility.

The power consumption in standby is about the same, but the power consumption when running the benchmark is the largest in Core i9-10900K, which is about 1.6 times that of Ryzen 3 types. It can be said that the importance of the CPU cooling system is steadily increasing because the consumption of electric power means that the amount of heat generated is also high. From Ryzen 9 3900XT, AMD has decided not to attach a CPU cooler to Ryzen 9.

In conclusion, Ars Technica, as AMD stated at the time of the announcement, is performing well in both high multithreading and singlethreading, and has been overtaken by Intel's previous single-threaded performance against AMD. It says that it was.

・ Addition
In addition, the IT news site ExtremeTech also compares Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and Intel Core i9-10900K.

ExtremeTech measures the compression / decompression speed of the compression / answer tool 7-zip . According to it, both compression and decompression are overwhelming victory of Ryzen 9, especially the decompression speed of Ryzen 9 5950X hits the double score of Core i9-10900K.

The graph below shows the result of measuring the rendering time with Blender version 2.0.5. The shorter the bar graph, the better the grade. The Ryzen 9 5950X outperforms the Core i9-10900K, although it depends on the algorithm.

ExtremeTech also publishes the results of gaming FPS measurements with the best graphics settings. From the top, the graphs are from 'Assassin's Creed Origin', 'Borderlands 3', 'Far Cry 5', and 'Final Fantasy XV'. The black bar graph is measured at 4K resolution, the green bar graph is measured at 1440p resolution, and the orange bar graph is measured at 1080p resolution. .. The longer the bar graph, the better the grade. Performance differs depending on the game, Ryzen 9 5950X outperforms, Intel Core i9-10900K outperforms, and the gaming performance is almost the same.

However, the Intel i9-10900K was released in May 2020 and is the oldest model of the CPUs under review. Intel's next-generation CPU, the Rocket Lake generation, will be released in the first quarter of 2021 and could be far behind AMD Ryzen's onslaught.
