The first results of performance tests of AMD Ryzen 7 5800X “Vermeer” Zen 3 new generation processor leaked to the database Ashes of The Singularity (AotS). The tests are marked by TUM APISAK and show that the upcoming 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X exceeds the fastest 10-core Intel Core i9-10900K gaming chip in price/performance ratio. Performance was measured in the AotS test with 4K Crazy preset, which shows the real performance of the processors.
Fundamental changes in Zen 3 will include a new architecture, redesigned CCD/cache structure, higher clock frequencies and improved performance. The clock frequencies of the chip were not specified in the test, but the chip gained 5900 points, which corresponds to Intel Core i9-10900K. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 video card was used in the tests.
At the same time, the frame rate of AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor completely exceeds the maximum frame rate of Intel Core i9-10900K. In normal batch mode, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X delivers 22% higher frame rates than Intel Core i9-10900K and an average of 16% higher frame rates in all batch results. The final Ryzen 7 5800X speed values are not yet known, but Intel Core i9-10900K has more cores and threads and operates at up to 5.3 GHz.
Previously leaked AMD Ryzen OPN codes indicated a clock frequency of up to 4.6 GHz for engineering samples, which corresponds to the Ryzen 7 3800X acceleration clock frequency. And because the Ryzen 7 3800X operates at up to 4.7 GHz, you can expect close to 4.7-4.8 GHz on Ryzen Zen 3 processors. Below are the leaked OPN codes of Zen 3 engineering samples from Igor’s Lab:
- OPN 1: 100-0000059-14_46 / 37_Y (12 cores)
- OPN 2: 100-0000059-15_46 / 37_N (12 cores)
- ON 1: 100-000000063-07_46 / 40_N (8 cores)
- OPN 2: 100-000000063-08_46 / 40_Y (8 cores)
- OPN 3: 100-000000063-23_44 / 38_N (8 cores)
AMD rates the Ryzen 7 5800X roughly the same as the Ryzen 7 3800X, namely around $350-400, which means a big win for consumers as they get the performance equivalent of a $500 chip at a much lower price. In addition, the AMD Ryzen 5000 processors will use an improved 7nm+ technology node with higher efficiency, which will require much lower power consumption than the Intel competitor chips.
