In recent hours, a test in Ashes of the Singularity of the new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, the new Ryzen desktop CPU based on Zen 3 architecture that will be revealed on October 8, leaked on the net. AMD’s decision to skip the Ryzen 4000 brand now seems official.
The Ashes of the Singularity test database is always a good place to find unreleased hardware: after the Ryzen 7 5700U that emerged last week, the usual leaker TUM_APISAK found traces of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, a solution with 8 cores and 16 thread that should be among the latest in the range of AMD’s new Zen 3 desktop CPU to be unveiled on October 8th.
According to the data released, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X came to destroy the Intel Core i9-10900K (10 cores + 20 threads) in terms of maximum framerate, where there was a performance difference of 22%. If we take an average of all the tests carried out, it gives us a fairly good average of 16%, not bad if we tell you again that the Intel CPU has two cores and four extra threads, in addition to reaching 5.30 GHz.
The name of this CPU seems to confirm the rumors of the past few weeks that AMD decided to skip the 4000 series in the desktop field to go directly to the 5000 series, in order to align the names of the products in the desktop and mobile field. The AotS benchmark does not show the operating frequencies of the components or other details, so at the moment you have to be content with the few data present.
The Ryzen 7 5800X will be part of a range of solutions that, again this year, should go up to 16 cores/32 threads and which will continue to be installed on AM4 socket motherboards with X570, B550, X470, and B450 chipsets, with this last two “fished out” after the complaints of users for the initial exclusion.
According to rumors, the Zen 3 CPUs will offer a significant improvement in performance per clock cycle (IPC), with estimates between 17% and 20%, by virtue of higher frequencies resulting from an improved production process at 7 nanometers, a renewed structure of CCDs and caches and other innovations yet to be discovered.
