AMD has previously released the Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the Zen 3 architecture. The official said that its IPC performance has increased by 19% compared to the previous generation, which undoubtedly means that their single-core and multi-core performance will be greatly improved. Before the test results were officially lifted, there have been some leaked data to prove this.
In the CPU single-core performance list released by VideoCardz, the R5 5600X ranked first, even surpassing the i9-10900K of Intel next door.
It is important to know that the single-core maximum core frequency of the i9-10900K has reached 5.3GHz, while the acceleration frequency of the R5 5600X is only 4.6GHz, and the price of the latter is only $299. Based on this alone, the R5 5600X may become a mid-end gaming processor with extremely high cost performance next year.
In CineBench R20, the Ryzen 5000 series has already occupied the top positions in single-core scores. However, the highest score here is R9 5950X, not R5 5600X.
According to the above leaked data, it can be seen that the theoretical performance of the Ryzen 5000 is indeed powerful, but it is still unclear whether AMD can convert the lead in parameters to games and productivity applications.
But the good news is that all 500 series motherboards can support Ryzen 5000 series processors, and some 400 series motherboards can also provide support after updating the BIOS. So many users do not need to buy a new motherboard if they want to replace the processor.
