After a long long wait, a finally have a Ryzen 5000 “Zen 3” Vermeer leak, thanks to the Ashes Escalation benchmark database. The Ryzen 7 5800X was paired with a GeForce RTX 2080 and tested at 4K using the crazy quality preset.
The next-gen Ryzen CPU scored 5,800 points with an average CPU frame-rate of 133.6 FPS. Intel’s fastest CPU, the Core i9-10900K, on the other hand, has an average CPU frame rate of 114 FPS. That’s a performance delta of nearly 10%, and it’s despite the fact that the Ryzen 7 5800X is an octa-core CPU while the 10900K is a ten-core part.
While there still isn’t enough data to come to a valid conclusion, it does look like AMD’s next-gen Ryzen CPUs will perform really well in gaming workloads, perhaps even beating Intel’s fastest parts if not leveling with them:
