The new AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is almost as fast as the Ryzen 7 3700X and its level of Cinebench performance simply blows the Intel Core i5-10600K out of the water: 42% better in multi-threading and 25% faster in the single-core test. The new AMD processor is also over 20% faster than its predecessor in both multi-threaded and single-threaded tests.

With the first official reviews less than a week away, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is already making waves. Now, the time has come for it to leave the Intel Core i5-10600K in the dust, as revealed by Cinebench testing results that surfaced on Twitter thanks to APISAK.

The platform used for testing consists of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X pushed to 4.7 GHz across all cores with a voltage of 1.256 V, DDR4 memory at 3200 MHz (CL14 timings), and the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII HERO motherboard. The results recorded are 2,040 points in multi-threaded tests and 258 points in the single-threaded benchmark.

The aforementioned figures place the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X as it follows:

  • 42% and 25% faster (multi- and single-threaded) vs. the Intel Core i5-10600K
  • 25% and 22% faster (multi- and single-threaded) vs. the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

In addition to the above, it is also worth mentioning that the overclocked AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is slightly faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X in the single-threaded Cinebench R15 test (258 points as mentioned earlier vs. 204), but loses in the multi-threaded test by a barely noticeable difference (2,040 vs. 2,112).

Another Intel processor that gets left behind, although the gap is minimal, is the Core i7-10700K, which scores 2,005 and 217 points.

In all the aforementioned AMD vs. Intel scenarios, taking the price and TDP values into account would only make Intel look worse, but we should wait for the official reviews to come out first. Obviously, if you have any thoughts you'd like to share now, the comments section is all yours.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
