Performance numbers have been published for AMD’s (Nasdaq:AMD) highly-anticipated Ryzen 5 5600X Zen 3 CPU well ahead of its expected review embargo, with data appearing on the SiSoftware benchmarking database.
The figures, which you can see graphed below for comparison including results for the current Ryzen 5 3600XT, point at a clear win for AMD in the arithmetic (arithmetic and floating point performance) and multi-media (multi-media and media processing performance) of CPUs.

AMD’s Zen 3 Bursts Onto The Scene With New Ryzen 5000 Series
The Ryzen 5 5600X is 14 percent faster in the arithmetic benchmark than the Core i5-10600K and 16 percent faster than the Ryzen 5 3600XT, which is currently AMD’s fastest six-core CPU, with the new 5600X sporting the same six cores and 12 threads.
However, the biggest leap came in the multi-threaded multi-media benchmark, where the Ryzen 5 5600X was 37 percent faster than the Intel CPU, which also sports six cores and 12 threads, and was 34 percent faster than the previous generation Ryzen 5 3600XT too.
If true, these results could point at the biggest performance leap for AMD since Ryzen launched in 2017, with the company already touting sizable gains in games, especially at 1080p, as well as some absolutely monstrous Cinebench scores.
Of course, we can’t be certain of the testing conditions for the new CPU, so the results are for the moment to be taken with the usual pinch of salt, but I’ll be reviewing the new CPUs when they land so follow me on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Reddit for more information when they arrive.
