A screenshot of a CPU-Z benchmark score of an alleged AMD Ryzen 9 5900X has surfaced. The screenshot shows us both the single-core and multi-core score, compared to the Ryzen 7 3700X, but another image with the Ryzen 9 3900X overclocked to 4.5GHz has also been posted by the same leaker.
Spotted by @9550pro on Tieba Baidu, the Ryzen 9 5900X CPU-Z benchmark screenshot shows us that this processor scored 652.8 in the single-core test, and 9481.8 in the multi-core test. In comparison with the Ryzen 7 3700X, which scored 511 in the single-core benchmark and 5433 in the multi-core benchmark, there’s a performance difference of 27.7% in single-core and 74,5% in multi-core.
Comparing to the results of the overclocked Ryzen 9 3900X, which scored 554.9 and 9064.8 in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively, there’s a 17% performance improvement in the single-core workload, and 4.6% performance improvement in multi-core workloads. With the Ryzen 9 3900X at stock clocks, these improvements increase to about 25% in single-core and 15-16% in multi-core. It seems that the rumoured single-core optimisations are making the difference here.

The leaker hasn’t shared any proof that these scores are indeed from a Ryzen 9 5900X, but the name “100-000000061-08” is very similar to other OPN codes that we have reported on previously.
AMD has scheduled the announcement of the Ryzen 5000 series for October 8th, with an expected release between October 20th and 27th.
KitGuru says: Were you expecting this increase in performance on single-thread workloads? Will you upgrade your processor for one of the upcoming Ryzen 5000 series?
