As we countdown to the AMD reveal event on October 8th, an alleged benchmark has leaked that shows an impressive performance increase for this new Zen 3 chip over its predecessors. This leak is in the form of a CPU-z screenshot that shows a 12 core and 24 thread AMD CPU running both single and multi-threaded tests.
This leaked CPU-z screenshot shows an as-yet-unreleased AMD processor with the 100-000000061-08 string, 12 cores, and 24 threads. These specs are what lead us to believe it’s the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, the next-generation Zen 3 powered processor that would take the place of the existing Ryzen 9 3900X CPU.
Although the screenshot is missing information like what clocks it was run at or which platform or memory was used, it still reveals some pretty interesting results. The CPU scored 652.8 points in the single-core test, putting it 27% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 3900X. When it comes to multi-thread performance, it scored 9481 points making it a whopping 75% improvement over the Ryzen 7 3700X and 15% over the Ryzen 9 3900X.
Of course, this is still speculation as we don’t know for sure that this is in fact the Ryzen 9 5900X or if the benchmark is actually legit, but if it is? We’re looking at some seriously impressive improvements from the previous generation of AMD CPUs.
