Trusted sources claim that only the 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X and 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X will hit retailers by October 20. However, around December this year, AMD also plans to release the 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X and the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X models and price points might be slightly higher compared to the current Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

A screenshot of a CPU-Z benchmark score of an alleged AMD Ryzen 9 5900X has surfaced. The screenshot shows us both the single-core and multi-core score, compared to the Ryzen 7 3700X, but another image with the Ryzen 9 3900X overclocked to 4.5GHz has also been posted by the same leaker.

Ryzen 9 5900X CPU-Z benchmark screenshot shows us that this processor scored 652.8 in the single-core test, and 9481.8 in the multi-core test. In comparison with the Ryzen 7 3700X, which scored 511 in the single-core benchmark and 5433 in the multi-core benchmark, there’s a performance difference of 27.7% in single-core and 74,5% in multi-core.

Comparing to the results of the overclocked Ryzen 9 3900X, which scored 554.9 and 9064.8 in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively, there’s a 17% performance improvement in the single-core workload, and 4.6% performance improvement in multi-core workloads. With the Ryzen 9 3900X at stock clocks, these improvements increase to about 25% in single-core and 15-16% in multi-core. It seems that the rumoured single-core optimisations are making the difference here.

Since the first tests for the 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X are showing quite a significant performance bump over the Ryzen 7 3800X, allowing it to beat even Intel’s i9-10900K top desktop CPU, some market analysts are inclined to think that AMD could also slightly raise the price points on all Zen 3 models. Still, the Ryzen 7 5800X will no doubt remain more affordable than Intel’s i9-10900K.
