The first leaks of the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark show that the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7 5800X offers a great performance boost over the Ryzen 7 3800X and Intel Core i9-10900K. The results show that Zen 3 Vermeer can alleviate many of the CPU bottlenecks that AMD processors still have.
We’re not too far off AMD Zen 3, so we can expect a lot of benchmark leaks ahead of the October 8 launch. Renowned leader @TUM_APISAK has discovered an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X entry in Ashes of the Singularity. (AoTS), and it looks like the upcoming Zen 3 Vermeer processor already has good advantages over not only the Ryzen 7 3800X but also the Intel Core i9-10900K.
While the benchmark does not show any clock speeds, it does indicate an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. Both Ryzen computers have 32GB of RAM onboard (the Core i9-10900K benchmark was run in a 16GB RAM configuration). Tests are conducted at 4K, with the exception of the Ryzen 7 3800X, which was tested at 1080p.
AoTS Benchmarks Result
In the Crazy_4K preset in the AoTS test, the Ryzen 7 5800X achieves 133.6 frames per second on average for the processor’s frame rate. That’s about 17.2% more than the Core i9-10900K in the same benchmark (114.8 fps). We also see good gains across all test subcomponents.
However, the biggest gain can be expected over the Ryzen 7 3800X at 1080p. The 3800X achieves around 88.6 fps in the Crazy_1080p benchmark, while the Ryzen 7 5800X averages 142.4 fps – an increase of 60.7% (or up to 23% faster given the 3800X’s better AoTS performance). With such high frames per second at 4K, one would conclude that with the Zen 3, AMD was able to alleviate many of the CPU bottleneck issues, likely due to the new CCX design.
Of course, the final conclusion on this can only be made when we have even more 1080p benchmark results from other CPU bound games like GTA V or even Flight Simulator 2020. However, it definitely seems like a very encouraging result.
However, this test confirms that AMD will opt for the 5xxx series nomenclature, syncing to both mobile and desktop offerings. While we know to be in existence as far back as the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X, the 16-core portion is still elusive.
