Leaked benchmarks of the new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X suggest that Intel’s Comet Lake could be in real trouble when the AMD chip comes out. The new leaks show the 5800X is more capable than Intel’s flagship processor with its single thread result of 650 and multi-threaded score of 6,593.

The leaks highlight the architectural advances that the AMD has made with its Zen 3-based CPUs, which include the Ryzen 7 5800X. Its single thread score of 650 indicates that performance-wise, it outdoes Intel’s Core-i9 10900K which only has a single thread score of 584.

It is also noteworthy that compared to the 10900K that can reach 5.3GHz on a single core, the new AMD chip has a maximum boost of 4.7GHz. Considering the substantial 600MHz difference in boost clocks, it is clear that the Ryzen 7 5800X is far more superior than its Intel rival.

With the 5800X’s capability, the 3950X, which has a single thread score of 524, is inarguably way, way behind the new AMD chip. Even when it comes to multi-threaded result, the 5800X is just as impressive and easily outpaces its predecessor by up to 18 percent.

While the Intel Core i9-10900K is faster in multi-threaded, it is important to note that it is essentially a 10-core, 20-thread processor. Despite the 5800X being an 8-core, 16-thread processor, however, tech experts say that the Intel flagship only wins by around 10 percent compared to the 5800X in this aspect.

The testbed for the Ryzen 7 5800X included a Gigabyte B550M Aorus Pro motherboard and 32GB of system RAM clocked at 2400MHz.

Meanwhile, new leaks also suggest that the Ryzen 9 5950X has a score of 690.2 on the single thread benchmark and 13306.5 on the multi-thread benchmark. In comparison to the Intel Core i9-10900K that scores about 584 and 7389, respectively, it is easy to see that AMD’s new flagship is far better.

The Ryzen 9 5950 also sits on top of the chart of the single-thread chart of PassMark with a score of 3693, positioning itself 7 percent above the Ryzen 5 5600X. When it comes to the multi-thread benchmark, the 5950X could even beat the Ryzen ThreadRipper Pro 3955WX with 45564 vs 42152 points.

The Ryzen 5000 chips will hit the market on Nov. 5.
