It took many years, but an AMD processor has finally been able to beat Intel mainstream desktop processors in a single-threaded benchmark.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X claims the first place in CPU Mark

The Ryzen 5 5600X is the upcoming Zen3 CPU featuring 6 cores and 12 threads. With a 200 MHz higher boost clock and Zen3 architecture improvements this processor is expected to offer 19% better performance per dollar than Intel Core i5-10600K in single-threaded benchmarks, according to AMD.

Recently PassMark has updated its webpage with CPU Mark results. The Ryzen 5 5600X is the first Zen3 processor to be listed, from the four SKUs announced. The 5600X scored 3495 points, while the top 10th Gen Core ‘Comet Lake-S’ CPU – the i9-10900K – scored 3177 points, meaning that the mid-range Ryzen CPU offers 10% better performance.

Compared to Ryzen 5 3600XT, the updated Zen2 CPU from the still current-gen series scored 2833 points. This means that the Zen3 successor is nearly 23% faster.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X will cost a little bit more than Ryzen 5 3600X. The manufacturer decided to increase the price of x600 SKU to 299 USD (50 USD more than 3600XT at launch). The Zen3 processor series will be available for sale on November 5th.
