Zen 3 Vermeer could finally end AMD's woes in gaming: Ryzen 7 5800X is 17% faster than the Core i9-10900K in AoTS at 4K and 60% faster than the Ryzen 7 3800X at 1080p

Initial Ashes of the Singularity benchmark leaks show the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7 5800X offering excellent performance gains over both the Ryzen 7 3800X and the Intel Core i9-10900K. The results indicate that Zen 3 Vermeer may alleviate a lot of the CPU bottlenecking concerns that have plagued AMD processors to date.

We are not too far away from AMD's Zen 3 arrival, so quite a few benchmark leaks can be expected in the run up to the launch on October 8. Known leaker @TUM_APISAK has identified an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X entry in the Ashes of the Singularity (AoTS) benchmark, and it looks like the upcoming Zen 3 Vermeer processor already seems to have good gains over not only the Ryzen 7 3800X but also the Intel Core i9-10900K.

While the benchmark does not show any clock speeds, it does indicate that the GPU being used is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080. There is 32 GB of system RAM on board for both the Ryzen PCs (the Core i9-10900K test was run in a 16 GB RAM configuration). The tests are run at 4K except for the Ryzen 7 3800X, which was tested at 1080p.

In the AoTS benchmark's Crazy_4K preset, the Ryzen 7 5800X scores 133.6 fps average in the CPU frame rate. This is about a 17.2% increase compared to what the Core i9-10900K scores in the same benchmark (114.8 fps). We see good gains in all the sub-components of the benchmark as well.

The biggest gains, however, can be expected when compared to the Ryzen 7 3800X at 1080p. The 3800X scores just about 88.6 fps in the Crazy_1080p test whereas  the Ryzen 7 5800X scores 142.4 average fps — a 60.7% uplift (or up to 23% faster considering the best AoTS performance by the 3800X). With such high fps at 4K one would want to infer that, with Zen 3, AMD has been able to alleviate a lot of the CPU bottlenecking concerns likely due to the new CCX design.

Of course, a final conclusion on that can be arrived at only when we have even more 1080p benchmark scores from other CPU-bound games such as GTA V or even Flight Simulator 2020. Nevertheless, this definitely seems to be a highly encouraging result.

What this test does confirm though is that AMD would be opting for a 5xxx series nomenclature synchronizing both mobile and desktop offerings. While we do know that up to a 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X exists, the 16-core part still remains elusive.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
