AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is the fastest single-threaded CPU in Passmark...

Last week we saw AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X take first place in Passmark’s single-threaded performance table, but that feat has now been surpassed by the great dad of the Ryzen 5000 CPU line, the Ryzen 9 5950X .

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is now the fastest single-threaded CPU in Passmark, outperforming and erasing all AMD / Intel chips

When we talked about the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X last week, we mentioned that it can easily be outperformed by its bigger siblings Ryzen 9 and Ryzen 7 when tested in the same single-threaded performance test. As AMD’s fastest and most powerful Zen 3 CPU, it has been found that the Ryzen 9 5950X is now listed in the performance overview (via Videocardz) with an astonishingly high performance figure, which wipes out all AMD and Intel CPUs of the previous generation (Ryzen 3000) & Intel 10th generation).

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X scored an impressive 3,693 points in the Passmark single-threaded test and was able to top the charts without any problems. The score is 7% higher than the Ryzen 5 5600X and compared to its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 3950X, the 5950X is 35% faster.

Even when compared to the Intel Core i9-10900K, which is apparently the only competition on the other hand, the Ryzen 9 5950X scores a 16% lead, which is very impressive. Sure, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X has a higher price tag of $ 799, but even then the Core i9-10900K is pretty tight on offer, and therefore the price on the available inventory is way above the MSRP of $ 549 and the chip can be found in various retail stores for over $ 800 to $ 900. It’s just mind-blowing to see AMD now dominating the single-core performance benchmarks and easily beating Intel by a huge double-digit leap. This shows just how powerful AMD’s core Zen 3 architecture is, and we can’t wait to see it in action on November 5th.

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with its 16 cores and threads has an impressive score of 45,564 points, an increase of 16% over its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 3950X. At the same time, the chip is around 10,000 and 20,000 points lower than the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X.

This is expected because the Zen 2-based thread rippers come with more cores and threads. However, we can expect that Zen 3-based Threadrippers can easily overturn their Threadripper, 3000 predecessor, with even higher performance. We can also expect the Zen 3-based thread rippers to be the first HEDT CPUs to break the 100,000 point mark in the multi-thread performance tests.

The latest entry of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X “Zen 3” desktop CPU was also discovered in Geekbench 5 by

. This time the chip was spotted with average clock rates of 5.04 GHz, with the fastest cores clocked at up to 5038 MHz. The fully valid entry shows the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X scores 1700 points, which is just insane for the Zen 3-based CPU. The chip ran on an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard with DDR4-3600 memory.

We have now seen several entries from the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in Geekbench 5 that achieved an average single-core score of around 1640 points and an average multi-core score of around 150,000 points. You can see the full listings below:
