AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Zen 3 CPU Review

Grand Theft Auto V

We use the DirectX 11 mode, anti-aliasing disabled, and the Maximum quality settings.

GTA V spells our first victory for AMD with Zen 3 and this is a noteworthy one. GTA V is an old, but still immensely popular and demanding DX11 title. AMD’s Zen 3 chips beating the Core i9-10900K in this test is notable given AMD’s historic struggles in the Intel-favouring GTA title.

Equally important is the sizable performance increase for Zen 3 versus Zen 2. This now makes the new Ryzen 5000 series chips an excellent choice for high refresh rate gaming with GTA V, whereas previously, Intel was the superior option in that use case.

Increasing the graphics workload to 1440P sees the same trend hold true. Zen 3 is still a little faster than the Core i9-10900K and the performance improvement over Zen 2 is sizable.
