AMD Ryzen 9 5950X vs AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

► remove from comparison AMD R9 5950X

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is a high-end 16-core, hyperthreaded (SMT) Vermeer Series desktop processor. With 32 threads, the new flagship offers as many threads as the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. Introduced on October 8, 2020, the Ryzen 9 5950X is the fastest 16-core processor and is specified at 105 watts TDP.

The Ryzen 9 5950X clocks at 3.4 GHz base clock rate and reaches up to 4.9 GHz in turbo mode on a single core. However, when all 16 cores are loaded, up to 4.5 GHz is still possible.

The performance of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is consistently very high in all applications and has been significantly improved over the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. AMD was able to improve especially the single thread performance and even beats the Intel Core i9-10900K in this discipline. The multi-thread performance is excellent due to the 16 cores.

The internal structure of the processor has not changed fundamentally at first glance. The CCX structure has changed a bit compared to Zen2, because now a CCX consists of up to 8 CPU cores. So each individual core can access the complete L3 cache (32 MByte). Furthermore the CCX modules are connected to each other via the same I/O die, which we already know from Zen2. According to AMD, the Infinity fabric should now reach clock rates of up to 2 Ghz, which in turn allows a RAM clock of 4,000 MHz without performance loss.

For the manufacturing processes, AMD relies on TSMC's 7 nm process for the Vermeer processor cores, although the I/O die is still produced on 12 nm Globalfoundries process.

In gaming, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is consistently impressive thanks to the significantly improved IPC, and easily outperforms the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X. The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is the perfect CPU for content creators, because in addition to gaming, the new flagship also masters simultaneous streaming. However, if you only want to play games, you are well advised to take a closer look at the cheaper AMD Ryzen 7 5800X or the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

► remove from comparison AMD R5 5600X

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is a desktop processor with 6 SMT-enabled (12 threads) and based on the Zen 3 architecture. Launched in November 2020, it is the fastest 6-core Ryzen desktop processor. With a TDP of 65 watts, the Ryzen 5 5600X is the least energy-hungry model in the Zen 3 family to date.

The Ryzen 5 5600X is clocked at 3.7 GHz base clock and can be clocked up to 4.6 GHz with Precision Boost 2.
