It seems that AMD will skip the Ryzen 4000 series naming. New entries found on the database of the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark show the first results of the upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X, giving us an idea of what we might expect once it has been released.
Clock speeds are not known, but it seems that the Ryzen 7 5800X will be an 8-core, 16-thread CPU, succeeding the Ryzen 7 3800X. Based on this, we expect that there will be a Ryzen 9 5900X, featuring 12 cores and 24 threads, and a 16C/32T Ryzen 9 5950X.
GPU and RAM frequencies and the platform where the benchmark was run are also not known. However, we know that the Ryzen 7 5800X was paired with 32GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080. Using the Crazy_4K preset level and the DirectX12 API, this system scored 5900.

It’s hard to do a fair comparison with other processors given that we don’t know the GPU core and memory clock, nor the RAM clock and timings. However, @CapFrameX shared a table with 5 different systems comparing the CPU framerate results in Normal, Medium and Heavy batches of the AotS benchmark. The Ryzen 7 5800X sits in between a stock Intel Core i9-10900K paired with DDR4-2933 CL16 RAM, and a heavily tuned Core i9-10900K at 5.0GHz paired with DDR4-4133 CL17 RAM. By the looks of it, AMD might have a chance to beat Intel at gaming.
AMD has scheduled the announcement event of their upcoming Zen3 processors for October 8th.
