AMD claims single-threaded performance leadership in PassMark with their Ryzen 5 5600X

AMD’s Zen 3 architecture and Ryzen 5000 series processors focus on single-threaded performance, offering users a 19% boost in IPC over today’s Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. 

With Zen 3, AMD has tackled many of the performance bottlenecks within the older Zen models through fundamental redesigns of several aspects of their core architecture, making the Ryzen 5000 series a gamechanger for AMD within the desktop market. 

PassMark’s CPU database has been updated with results from AMD’s 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X processor, as first reported by Videocardz. Thanks to the performance of their Ryzen 5 5600X, AMD has claimed performance leadership in PassMark’s single-threaded tests, achieving a score of 3,495. For comparison, Intel’s i9-10900K scores 3,175. 

Previously, AMD’s strongest single-threaded processor in PassMark was their Ryzen 7 3800XT, which scored 2,888. AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X offers a single-threaded performance boost of 21%, showcasing how much AMD’s Zen architecture has improved with Zen 3. AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X isn’t even AMD’s strongest Zen 3 processor in terms of single-threaded performance, as their 5800X, 5900X and 5950X models all feature higher single-threaded boost clock speeds.
