AMD’s Raizen 5000 Zen3 CPU Crush Zen2 in Live Benchmark Database with Jove-Dropping Scores


You have questions, I have questions, we all have questions about AMD’s recently announced Ryzen 5000 series, and specifically about how the actual performance stopped, with the company posting a 19 percent IPC (per Clock instructions) uplifted the Ryzen 3000 series. Reliable replies will have to wait until the review is posted. Waiting is hard, however, and caution should be taken when looking at informal benchmark runs, there is another set of interesting results, this time within SiSoftware’s SANDRA database.
This latest round of leaked data follows a recent search for Zen 3 benchmark results within the Cinebench R20 database, which we wrote earlier this week. It included all four processors, including the Ryzen 5000 series family, and the score, while also informal, was promising for AMD’s latest desktop silicon.

Now less than a week later, three out of four Raizen 5000 processors have found their way to the Sandra database, that too with encouraging results. Before we get to the numbers, let’s speed up on the relevant specifications of the Ryzen 5000 lineup. Here is an easy chart…

Ryzen 5000 Series Specifications

It’s an enticing lineup across the board, and demand is likely to be high when these CPUs hit store shelves within a few weeks. Unfortunately according to the SANDRA results, Ryzen 5 5600X is not part of the leak. However, the other three did their own way stealthily, all seeming to be tested equally by the same user, as each individual entry lists the same MSI MEG X570 motherboard.

Another hat tip goes to Twitter user @TUM_APISAK for bringing this to their attention. Here are overall processor arithmetic scoring results with links to each individual listing …

Mind is flowing, isn’t it? Amazing? Fantastic? can not believe? Maybe, maybe not – in zero, those numbers don’t mean that completely. But if we compare them to Zen 2 processors then AMD’s new chips are ready to change, well, things look really good.

Twitter user @ harukaze5719 We all solidified by completing the big scores and plotting them into a simple graph. have a look…
Ryzen 5000 Series SANDRA Processor Arithmetic

The Ryzen 9 5950X scored about 15 percent more than the Ryzen 9 3950X. Similarly, the Ryzen 9 5900X scored a little over 18 percent compared to the Ryzen 9 3900X, while the Ryzen 7 5800X outscored the Ryzen 7 3800X by nearly 19 percent, basically meeting AMD’s IPL ascension claim Happened.

A similar story with processor multimedia results …

Ryzen 5000 SANDRA Multi Media

Here we see Ryzen 9 5950X score 25 percent higher than Ryzen 9 3950. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 9 5900X makes a 35 percent jump over the Ryzen 9 3900X, while the Ryzen 7 5800X gets the largest gain of all, scoring 42. Ryzen 7 percent over 3800X.

These are fantastic results across the board. And as always, you should take them with a grain of salt – these are leaked benchmarks, after all. However, one thing that works in their favor is that the Retain 5000 series is very close to retail launch, so such leaks are generally (though not always) more reliable than those that appeared much earlier Occur.

We’ll have to wait and see, but this is another set of initial benchmarks that have made us cautiously optimistic for Zen 3.
