AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Zen 3 CPU Review

Metro Exodus

We use the DirectX 12 mode, PhysX & Hairworks disabled, and the Ultra quality settings.

Metro Exodus flips the chart-topping position back to Intel’s Core i9-10900K. Here, Zen 3 shows another strong performance uplift versus Zen 2, but the Intel offering is slightly faster.

The key takeaway for Zen 3 is that it is now close enough to the 10900K’s performance levels to be considered a smart option for high refresh rate gaming, whereas that was not necessarily the case on Zen 2.

1440P shows the same performance trend, but the margins are constricted to the point where Zen 2, Zen 3, and Comet Lake all do well.
