AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU-Z Validation – Dominates CPU-Z Benchmark Scores With Garbage System RAM – 5950X Scores Also Leaked

In yet another act of total domination of AMD’s upcoming Zen 3 processors it would seem that AMD intends to phase out the usage of CPU-Z’s inbuilt benchmark for the personal use of Intel and their many fangays.

A CPU-Z validation page has been spotted of AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X.

Following the valid.x86 link we’re met with the Ryzen 7 5800X paired with a Gigabyte B550M Aorus Pro motherboard and 32GB of total system memory in a 4×8 configuration at 2348MHz with CL timings of 17-17-17-39.

Certainly far from ideal as I’ve expressed in the past just how dependent the Zen architecture has always been on the highest possible memory frequencies with the lowest possible latency which has a substantial implication on memory latency and overall performance in majority of applications.

This system despite being hampered by utterly garbage system memory that’s certainly bound to impact upon its raw performance the Ryzen 7 5800X still manages to rip CPU-Z single threaded benchmark apart scoring 650 points

Judging these single-core scores it’s clear to see that the Ryzen 7 5800X is at the very least 11% faster in the single-threaded scores over the Intel Core i9-10900K which has a single core boost frequency of 5.3GHz. The 5800X is also over 25% faster than its predecessor, the 3800X.

It’s well and truly obvious that despite being held back by the system memory it’s still not enough for Intel and their clockspeed advantage to muster anything in retaliation against the Zen 3 architecture whose IPC proves to be industry leading.

Intel’s fledging Skylake architecture on the increasingly outdated 14nm process is certainly turning out to be the second coming of the Pentium 4.

However if we shift our attention to the multi-threading portion of CPU-Z’s benchmark which has been one of the more weaker uplifts comparative to last generation to AMD, the Ryzen 7 5800X scores 6593 in that regard.


Compared to the 3800X, the 5800X is all but just over 18% faster in multithreading and just under 10% faster than the gung-ho Intel Core i9-9900KS which would eat the Ryzen for breakfast if temperatures and power consumption is all that we use to compare performance.

Comparing the Ryzen 7 5800X with Intel’s 10-core offerings shows a sway of 10.7% in the favor of Intel’s 10900K which has 25% more cores and threads made available to it along with lowest standards in terms of power consumption due to the hammered high clockspeeds of those Intel processors.

Despite having outright cancerous system memory holding it back the 5800X shows its prowess in multithreading perfectly with Ryzen’s resurgence with its dominate stronghold on IPC performance so strong that even Skylake at 5.3GHz doesn’t even come close.

Supposed Ryzen 9 5950X Scores Surface

Something else that also managed to surface though not as credible as a proper CPU-Z validation, sourced from Chiphell are the supposed scores of a 5950X.

Given that the Ryzen 9 5950X has the highest single core boost out of any of the Ryzen 5000 series processor it’s a given that it would have the highest single core scores which in this case it does as the Ryzen 9 5950X apparently scores an astounding 690 points from its maximum boost of 4.9GHz. This completely shadows Intel’s top performance processor by 18% having played catchup on the frequency a little.

Multi-threading is where it gets interesting as the Ryzen 9 5950X scores 13,306 points which is 22.4% faster than the 3950X which scores 10,867. Which even the 3950X managed to score above that of Intel’s dying HEDT lineup, the 10980XE which the 5950X is 26.73% faster. Outright dominating the 18-core processor on its dead platform.

Compared to the Threadripper range, the Ryzen 9 5950X with just 16-cores manages to surpass the 2970WX processor which scores 12,676 and is based on the Zen+ architecture but nonetheless has 24 cores and 48 threads at its disposal.

That is how significant of an increase AMD has been making across multiple generations of Ryzen. All the while Intel have been twiddling their thumbs about on the same architecture and fabrication process since 2014.

AMD are posed to completely dominate Intel come this generation around, there are no excuses for Intel fangays to make now that AMD Ryzen processors surpass the competition in EVERY. SINGLE. ASPECT.
