AMD Ryzen 5000 Geekbench Scores Spotted - Clocks Can Hit 5GHz

AMD on October 8th announced their Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 CPUs - the Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X - all of them will be available for purchase starting November 5th. As we get closer and closer to the launch date we are having more and more benchmark numbers that are being spotted across the benchmarking databases like Sisoftware, Geekbench and more. If one can combine all of these "leaked" benchmark numbers into one article / video it would not be a stretch to call it a review (assuming those numbers are all correct and are run using the same hardware and software versions).

Today's benchmark numbers are coming from the Geekbench database and these were initially found and share by @TUM_APISAK on twitter. We do not yet know if these CPUs were on air cooling or water cooling but the benchmarks show that the Zen 3 based CPUs will hit the 5GHz mark especially in case of the Ryzen 9 5950X which hit 5.04GHz where as the Ryzen 9 5900X trailed slightly behind at 4.95GHz missing the 5GHz mark by just 50MHz. With all that said lets get into the numbers.

Looking at the Geekbench5 score of the Ryzen 5 5600X, it scored 1496pts in single-core test and 7550pts in the multi-core test with max boost clock of 4.64GHz which is 40MHz faster than the 4.6GHz clock that AMD advertised for the 6 core 12 thread CPU. It is to be noted that the test system was running with a measly 2133MHz dual channel 16GB of RAM on an ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming motherboard. We all know how memory sensitive Ryzen is so we can expect more performance out of the CPU with the use of a higher frequency ram kit like a 3600Mhz or 4000Mhz kit. But none-the-less for comparison the Ryzen 5 3600XT scored 1299pts and 7082pts in the single-core and multi-core test respectively which means the Zen 3 based Ryzen 5 5600X is around 15% faster in single core performance and 6.6% faster in multi-core performance compared to the Ryzen 5 3660XT.

This 8 core 16 thread Zen3 based CPU in Geekbench5 scored 1616 and 10096pts in single-core and multi-core performance respectively with max clock of 4.84GHz which is about 140MHz faster than what AMD promised at 4.7GHz for the said CPU. It was running on a X570 Aorus Pro motherboard with 16GB of 3200MHz dual channel RAM kit. Comparing these numbers to the 3800XT - which scored 1355 and 9122pts in single and multi-core tests respectively - we come know that the new 8 core part is around 19% and 1% faster in single and multi core tests respectively. 

This 12 core 24 thread monster reached max frequency of 4.95GHz - just shy of the 5GHz mark - and scored 1642pts and 12588pts in the single core and multi-core tests in Geekbench5 respectively. This setup was on an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula with 32GB of 3600MHz dual channel RAM kit. The Ryzen 9 3900XT scored 1336pts and 12397pts in single and multi-core tests making the 5900X 23% and 1.5% faster in single and multi-core tests respectively.

This 16 core 32 thread behemoth of a CPU was the only one that could break the 5GHz bar reaching a max frequency of 5.04GHz and scoring 1661pts and 15804pts in single and multi-core tests in Geekbench5. This setup had an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII formula with 32GB of 3200MHz dual channel RAM. Comparing it to the Ryzen 9 3900X (1292 and 14097pts in single and multi-core performance respectively) we have a Zen 3 based CPU that is 28.5% and 12.1% faster in single and multi-core performance than the Zen 2 counterpart.

Here's a chart posted by @harukaze5719 showing how the Zen 2 and Zen 3 based CPUs performance against each other based on the Geekbench5 scores:
