An unknown system incorporating an Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus motherboard and an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU has been tested on Geekbench. The device with the brand-new board and just-announced Ryzen 3000 processor managed a surprising score in the single-core test, where it managed to beat out every other Ryzen-based system that has appeared on Geekbench so far.

It appears an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 chip is currently the Ryzen champion in Geekbench’s single-core charts for the time being; at least, until other Matisse processors start appearing on the benchmark. A record for a model with the incomplete name of “System manufacturer System Product Name” has been found on Geekbench with the upcoming Zen 2 processor featuring as a component in Asus’ TUF Gaming X570-Plus motherboard.

The Ryzen 5 3600 scored 26,371 in the multi-core test, but the single-core test score is what really stands out for this particular Geekbench entry. The Ryzen 3000 series processor amassed 5,390 points, which is more than any other Ryzen-branded chip, including Threadrippers, currently found in the benchmark chart (33 recorded at the time of writing). The nearest AMD-designed product, which is perhaps unsurprisingly the Ryzen 7 2700X, trails far behind on 4,802 points.

The Ryzen 5 3600 / Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus combination also seems to have proved to be very successful in outscoring the competition. The score of 5,390 matches that of the 8-core i7-7820X (the Ryzen 5 3600 is a 6-core processor). More impressively, the entry-level Ryzen 3000 chip is only 10 points short of equaling the Intel Core i9-9980XE, which is an 18-core monster. Of course, this is a very specific benchmark based on single-core processing, so having a huge amount of cores is irrelevant here. Geekbench entries have been known to be faked, but the signs do point to the likelihood that AMD’s Matisse generation of desktop processors is going to be very impressive.
