Let’s start with some basic information. The Ryzen 5 5600X offers 6 cores and 12 virtual threads. The declared frequency range of the processor is 3.7-4.6 GHz. The total amount of cache memory of the novelty is 35 MB (32 MB is in L3). The chip operates in the voltage range from 0.9 to 1.2 V (depending on the load) with a nominal TDP value of 65 W. The recommended processor price is 299 USD.
According to the Polish edition of ITHardwareThe junior representative of the Zen 3 family, who did not wait for the end of the embargo and published a review of this chip earlier than others, shows its predecessor Ryzen in single-thread tasks not only against the background of a really very high level of performance 5 3600X of the Zen 2 generation, but also more expensive compared to Intel solutions. For example, the Ryzen 5 5600X achieved 600 points in the single-threaded Cinebench R20 benchmark, 17% more than the Ryzen 5 3600X. The novelty also overtook the more expensive 10-core Intel Core i9-10850K, which runs with a higher declared maximum frequency of 5.2 GHz. The result of the latter in a single stream, according to the Polish observer, was 538 points.
When compressing a 1.5 GB file in WinRar, the junior representative of the Zen 3-based Vermeer series coped faster than its predecessors and literally showed parity with the Intel Core i5-10600K. With 7-Zip, the new chip is more efficient than its predecessor Ryzen 5 3600X and its direct competitor.
Below are the video encoding rates for H.265 / HEVC and H.264 / AVC at 1080p with the Ryzen 5 5600X (lower is better).
Resource TechPowerUP notes that Ryzen 5 5600X has tremendous IPC growth and more than 15 percent performance increase in games compared to its predecessor. The Zen 3 chip with six cores outperforms the Ryzen 7 3800XT with eight cores in games and workloads. Examples of gaming performance are shown below.
With regard to overclocking, the Polish reviewer notes that the Ryzen 5 5600X was able to transmit the 4.8 GHz frequency without any problems across all cores at a voltage of 1.275 V. However, further overclocking proved unstable. Even at 1.4V, the processor could not exceed the 4.9 GHz mark with a conventional cooling system.
The TechPowerUp Reviewer was less fortunate. With Air CO, he could only overclock the processor to 4.6 GHz over all six cores. When the frequency increased to 4.7 GHz when passing the tests with AVX instructions, the system refused to work. Stability at this frequency was not achieved even by increasing the voltage to 1.45V. When the voltage was decreased to 1.35 V and the frequency of six cores decreased to 4.6 GHz, the system passed all stability tests. This proves once more that the processor is not the same and someone can be more lucky and someone less.
Under the conditions of the frequency range specified by the manufacturer, as well as the voltage, the Ryzen 5 5600X processor turned out to be colder than the chips that took part in this comparison. A Noctua NH-D14 cooler with Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste was used as the cooling system for the chips. The Polish reviewer notes that the new Ryzen 5 5600X was up to 14 degrees colder compared to the same Ryzen 5 3600X. A very impressive result. The overclocking result turned out to be no less interesting. The chip, which ran at a frequency of 4.8 GHz across all cores, was only 2 degrees hotter than the Ryzen 5 3600X, which was overclocked to 4.2 GHz – 85 against 83 degrees Celsius. TechPowerUp Test results, the LSS used, a bit better. With the standard frequency range of 3.7 to 4.6 GHz, the maximum processor temperature was 59 degrees Celsius, while it was overclocked to 4.6 GHz across all cores – 77 degrees.
With the specified frequency and voltage range, the maximum power consumption of the Ryzen 5 5600X from the Polish observer was 157 W, which is 13 W less than the Ryzen 5 3600X under the same conditions. When overclocking to 4.8 GHz in the Linx 0.6.5 test, the new chip consumed 203 watts, 21 watts more than the overclocked Ryzen 5 3600X. Even with displays like this, the Ryzen 5 5600X consumed less power than the Core i9-10850K, which ran at base frequencies and voltages, not to mention overclocking it.
According to TechPowerUpThe entire Ryzen 5 5600X system with 16 GB DDR4 and EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra consumed about 366 W. When the processor was overclocked, the power consumption increased to 380 W.
