Everything You Need to Know Before the Ryzen Launch

The launch of the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs along with the RX 5700 cards is almost a week away. But, we’ve already had a lot of leaks, especially for the Ryzen CPUs so let’s take a look at all the leaks and what we can expect from the upcoming CPUs.

The Leaks

Ryzen 3600 CPU Leak

The Ryzen 3600 benchmark leaks come thanks to El Chapuzas who released their benchmarks way before the embargo date. According to their benchmarks in Cinebench R15, the Ryzen 3600 outperforms the 8c/ 16t Ryzen 2700X. It also outperforms the Ryzen 1700X and the i7-9700K in Single and Multi-core tests.

Ryzen 3800X CPU Leak

Ryzen 3800 X SC Score: 5406 | Intel 9900K SC Score: 5211

The Ryzen 3800X which is an 8c/ 16t CPU trades blows and even outperforms the i9-9900K in Geekbench benchmarks. While it beats it in Multicore performance, it is somewhat slower than the i9 in Single-core tests. However, the board used for the 3800X was an X470 motherboard which means it wasn’t performing at 100%.

Ryzen 3950X CPU Leak

The Ryzen 3950X is the first mainstream 16c / 32t CPU that handily beats the i9-9980XE in the Geekbench benchmarks. It outclasses the $2000 i9 in both single and multicore benchmarks while just costing  $750.

Mystery CPU Leak

This CPU which might be an engineering sample seems to be running at an overclocked speed of 5.25Ghz on all cores. Its base frequency is 3.3Ghz so this is an extremely crazy overclock which explains the scores.

Mystery CPU Benchmark

And this mystery CPU while not a 3950X because of the different base clock speeds, also seems to destroy the i9-9980XE.

RX 5700XT GPU Leak

The Navi RX 5700XT is also launching alongside the Ryzen CPUs.  And just like the Ryzen CPUs, we have a leak for this as well.

The RX 5700XT performs similar to the RTX 2070 in Time Spy as it scores 8719 in comparison to the 2070’s 8901. Do keep in mind that the Rx 5700XT will probably increase after launch thanks to the release of its drivers. Also, the Time Spy benchmark doesn’t always translate well when it comes to gaming performance so while this is a good showing, we’re yet to see game benchmarks.

The Info

CPU Cores / Threads GPU Base / Boost Clock TDP Price
Ryzen 3 3200G 4c / 4t Vega 8 3.6 / 4.0GHz 65W $99
Ryzen 5 3400G 4c / 8t Vega 11 3.7 / 4.2GHz 65W $149
Ryzen 5 3600 6c / 12t 3.6 / 4.2GHz 65W $199
Ryzen 5 3600X 6c / 12t 3.8 / 4.4GHz 95W $250
Ryzen 7 3700X 8c / 16t 3.6 / 4.4GHz 65W $329
Ryzen 9 3800X 8c / 16t 3.9 / 4.5GHz 105W $399
Ryzen 9 3900X 12c / 24t 3.5 / 4.6GHz 105W $499
Ryzen 9 3950X 16c / 32t 3.5 / 4.7GHz 105W $749

Ryzen 3000 16 Core CPU Benchmark Leaked; 5.25Ghz Speed Demon

The Ryzen 3000 series benchmarks continue to hit the internet thanks to various different leaks. Yet again, chip sleuth TUM_APISAK has found a benchmark for a 16c/32t Ryzen 3000 series CPU that seems to be even more powerful than the benchmarks we’ve seen before.

The Mystery Ryzen CPU Scores

This CPU which might be an engineering sample seems to be running at an overclocked speed of 5.25Ghz on all cores. Its base frequency is 3.3Ghz so this is an extremely crazy overclock which explains the scores.

The i9-9980XE Scores

This Mystery CPU outclasses the Intel i9-9980XE and the i9-9900K in both Single-core and Multi-core tests. This is especially surprising considering the higher number of threads on the 9980XE which has 36 threads.

The i9-9900K Scores

These benchmark numbers seem to be higher than the previous leak that we saw. This is probably because of the change from X470 to X570 which allowed them to push the clocks higher and enjoy the faster memory.

Another thing to note is that the i9s are older 14nm CPUs while this mystery CPU is a 7nm chip. This mystery is not the 3950X as this mystery CPU runs at a base of 3.3Ghz whereas the 3950X runs at a base clock of 3.5Ghz.

All these leaks seem to a good showing for the upcoming Zen 2 CPUs and we can’t wait for the official release.

More Ryzen 5 3600 Benchmarks Leaked; Zen 2 Looks Very Promising

The hype train for 3rd Gen Ryzen has left the station and with the release date drawing closer and closer, more and more leaks seem to be popping up. And all these leaks have one thing in common, Ryzen being an absolute beast.

Spanish website El Chapuzas Informático have released their R5 3600 benchmarks and they look very promising and seem to align with most of the leaks we’ve seen.

Single Core Test

Multi-Core Test

From these benchmarks, the 6c/12t Ryzen 3600 is outperforming the 8c/16t R7 2700X and also is very close to the i9-9900K. In the multicore benchmark, we see the R5 3600 outperform the R7 1700X and the i7-9700K.

Here’s another leak that shows the Ryzen 5 3600 score 197 in the single-core Cinebench R15 benchmark which aligns with the scores from El Chapuzas. And in the multi-core benchmark, it seems to go toe-to-toe with the i7-9700K and the i9-9900K at what seems to be same clock speeds.

These are really good showings from AMD if this is anything to go off of, I’m really curious to see how the Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 CPUs perform because if the Ryzen 5 CPU is performing so well that too at a price point of around $200, the higher end CPUs might just be absolute beasts that have a chance to dethrone Intel’s high-end CPU market as well.

The launch for the Ryzen’s 7nm lineup is on 7/7 which is just about two weeks away, and closer to the release date we might get more solid info and once the embargo is lifted, we will really get to see how good this 7nm lineup is.

Do note that El Chapuzas has previously leaked benchmarks for Ryzen 2600 and Ryzen 2700X which were not 100%. The scores in some cases were accurate but in some were lower than the actual performance so take their benchmark results with a grain of salt. Their result is a pre-proper BIOS result.

Intel’s 10th Gen CPU Performance Leaked?

Intel’s 10th Generation Ice Lake performance may have leaked thanks to CPU-Z benchmarks which leads us to believe that they will have massive performance gains.

A member from a Chinese forum leaked an image of various single-thread benchmarks for CPUs which includes the upcoming Ryzen 3600X, 3700X and 3800X along with Intel’s current CPU lineup. The list also features the score of two new Intel CPU’s based on the Sunny Cove architecture and one new Comet Lake CPU.

These benchmarks are really interesting as you can see the leap in performance of the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs and the upcoming Intel CPUs when compared to the 9th Gen CPUs including the i9-9700K and the i9-9900K.

The i9 9900K @5Ghz scores 600 while the 3600X @4.6Ghz thanks to Precision Boost scores 609 points. The 6c12t Sunny Cove CPU @3.6Ghz outscores the aforementioned CPUs with a score of 630.

The other Sunny Cove CPU which is 4c8t @3.7Ghz outperforms the Ryzen 3800X @4.7Ghz and the 7700K @5.2Ghz with a score of 693 which is also quite impressive. And finally, the 8c8t Comet Lake CPU @5.2Ghz scores 640 which is just 5 points shy of the 9700K @5.3Ghz.

Intel had claimed that they have achieved an 18% IPC Improvement from Sky Lake and that improvement goes up to 40% in some workloads. While there have been no 3rd party benchmarks yet, these CPU-Z benchmarks do showcase the performance gains in Single Thread performance and it even confirms Zen 2’s IPC gains that AMD had claimed.

Time will tell how accurate these benchmarks are but they don’t seem too farfetched to be true and has us excited for the next generation of CPUs to launch.
