AMD was very proud of their single core achievements during the Zen 3 announcement and with launch days closing to November 5, performance leaks have been slowly creeping out to the web which shows some potential preview of what to expect.
Recently, a Passmark benchmark result surfaced showing the Ryzen 5 5600X’s single threaded performance. The Ryzen 5 5600X score 3495 points overtaking Intel’s lead with the Core i9 10900K which scores 3177. That puts it 10% above the current market leader and this is a very good thing as the Ryzen 5 5600X is a $299 part and is going to be one of the go-to processors for gaming builds.
The Ryzen 5 5600X is a 6-core, 12-thread CPU and is looked upon as one of the best value positions for AMD’s product stack and with this news, the Ryzen 5 5600 (non-X) may be near somewhat near which means greater value for this price point.
