Apple M1 : How Fast Are Its CPU + GPU?

The Apple M1 is the first ARM-based SoC (System on a Chip) designed by Apple to be used as the CPU for Mac computers.

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the Apple M1, including how fast its CPU and GPU really are!

 

Apple M1 : First ARM SoC For Mac Computers!

The Apple M1 is the first ARM-based SoC (System on a Chip) designed by Apple for use in Mac computers, debuting in :

  • 2020 MacBook Air (4th Gen) : US | UK | AU | MY | SG
  • 2020 MacBook Pro (6th Gen) : US | UK | AU | MY | SG
  • 2020 Mac mini (5th Gen) : US | UK | AU | MY | SG

Packing 16 billion transistors, it is the first chip to be manufactured on the new 5 nm TSMC process technology.

As an SoC, it combines 8 CPU cores, an 8-core GPU, a 16-core Neural Engine, an image signal processor (ISP), an NVMe storage controller, a Thunderbolt 4 controller and a Secure Enclave – all in a single chip.

The Apple M1 is paired with either 8 GB or 16 GB of LPDDR4X memory using a system-in-a-package design.

8-Core CPU : ARM big.LITTLE Design

The Apple M1 uses the ARM big.LITTLE design for the CPU. Its 8-core CPU is divided into two performance clusters :

  • P Cluster (Performance) : 4 x Firestorm cores (up to 3.2 GHz)
  • E Cluster (Efficient) : 4 x Icestorm cores (up to 2.06 GHz)

The P Cluster is designed for high-performance, with a power consumption of 13.8 watts. It has a large 12 MB shared L2 cache, with a 128 KB dedicated L1 cache for each Firestorm core.

The E Cluster, on the other hand, is designed for a low power consumption of just 1.3 watts. It has a smaller 4 MB shared L2 cache, with a 64 KB dedicated L1 cache for each Icestorm core.

8-Core GPU : Mysterious Indeed!

The M1 uses an Apple-designed 8-core GPU, of which very little is known. Apple only says that it can handle up to 25,000 concurrent threads.

But from what we can tell, it has 128 execution units with an FP32 performance of 2.6 teraflops per second, a 82 GT/s texture fill rate, and a 41 GP/s pixel fill rate.

16-Core Neural Engine

The Apple M1 features a 16-core Neural Engine, which is capable of executing 11 trillion operations per second.

LPDDR4X Unified Memory

The Apple M1 uses a unified memory design, which means the CPU and GPU share the same memory.

Apple offers 8 GB and 16 GB LPDDR4X SDRAM options, built directly onto the package for near-instantaneous access.

Rosetta 2 Translation

As most Mac apps are compiled for x86 processors, they need to be translated to work with the Apple M1, which uses the totally different ARM architecture.

That’s where Apple Rosetta 2 comes in – introduced in macOS Big Sur, it translates or emulates x86 apps so that they can run properly on the M1 processor.

Certain apps, especially games, may require third-party software like Wine or CrossOver to work properly, like this example of The Witcher 3 running on the Apple M1.

Apple M1 : How Fast Are Its CPU + GPU?

Unfortunately, we do not have access to the Apple M1, but Ars Technica tested it in the 2020 Mac mini. Take a look at some of the results they posted :

Note : While Ars Technica listed the M1 as a 10 watt part, this is only what Apple claims for the MacBook Air. It is likely to be clocked higher, with a higher TDP in the Mac mini and MacBook Pro.

Geekbench 5 : Single-Threaded CPU Test

Will you look at that? The Apple M1’s Firestorm cluster has really good single-core performance!

It was 7% faster than the Core i7-1185G7, in both 28W and 15W TDP modes; and 53% faster than the Ryzen 7 4700U!

Geekbench 5 : Multi-Threaded CPU Test

This is even more astounding! The Apple M1 is even faster in the multi-threaded test!

In the multi-threaded test, the Apple M1 was 22% faster and 54% faster than the Core i7-1185G7 in 28W and 15W modes, respectively. It was also 52% faster than the Ryzen 7 4700U!

Geekbench 5 : GPU Test

Even its 8-core GPU did very well, beating the Core i7-1185G7‘s integrated Iris Xe by 26%, and Ryzen 7 4700U‘s integrated Vega 7 by 65%.

Cinebench R23 : Single-Threaded Test

The Apple M1 was as fast as the 28-watt Core i7-1185G7 in the single-threaded test, and was 28% faster than the Ryzen 7 4700U. And it was only 6.5% slower than the Ryzen 9 5950X.

Cinebench R23 : Multi-Threaded Test

In the multi-threaded test, the Ars Technica team set a limit of 8 threads for a level-playing field.

The Apple M1 did well, beating the Ryzen 7 4700U by 14%, and the Core i7-1185G7 by 25%. And it was just 34% slower than the Ryzen 9 5950X.

 

Apple M1 Mac Computers : Where To Buy?

The Apple M1 is currently available in these Mac computer models :

  • 2020 MacBook Air (4th Gen) : US | UK | AU | MY | SG
  • 2020 MacBook Pro (6th Gen) : US | UK | AU | MY | SG
  • 2020 Mac mini (5th Gen) : US | UK | AU | MY | SG

AMD Zen 3 Tech Report : What’s New, What’s Unchanged?

Take a look at what’s new in the AMD Zen 3 microarchitecture, and what they borrowed from the last-gen Zen 2 microarchitecture!

 

AMD Zen 3 Architecture

Codename Vermeer, Zen 3 is the next evolution of the AMD Zen architecture.

While it obviously borrowed considerably from the existing Zen 2 architecture, AMD says it is a ground-up redesign that with major performance and functionality improvements in every area of the core.

These architectural changes allow Zen 3-based processors, like the Ryzen 5000 series, to deliver a 19% improvement in instructions per clock (IPC).

Front-End Enhancements

  • Faster fetching, especially for branchy and large-footprint code
  • L1 branch target buffer doubled in size to 1024 entries for better prediction latency
  • Improved branch predictor bandwidth
  • Faster recovery from misprediction
  • “No bubble” prediction capabilities to make back-to-back predictions more quickly and better handle branchy code
  • Faster sequencing of op-cache fetches
  • Finer granularity in switching of op-cache pipes

Execution Engines

  • Reduce latency and enlarge structures to extract higher instruction-level parallelism (ILP)
  • New dedicated branch and st-data pickers for integer, now at 10 issues per cycle (+3 vs. Zen 2)
  • Larger integer window at +32 vs. Zen 2
  • Reduced latency for select float and int operations
  • Floating point has increased bandwidth by +2 for a total of 6-wide dispatch and issue
  • Floating point FMAC is now 1 cycle faster

Load Store

  • Larger structures and better prefetching to support the enhanced execution engine bandwidth
  • Overall higher bandwidth to feed the appetite of the larger/faster execution resources
  • Higher load bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1
  • Higher store bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1
  • More flexibility in load/store operations
  • Improved memory dependence detection
  • +4 table walkers in the TLB

SOC Architecture

  • Reduce dependency on main memory accesses, reduce core-to-core latency, reduce core-to-cache latency.
  • Unify all cores in a CCD into a single unified complex consisting of 4, 6, or 8 contiguous cores
  • Unify all L3 cache in a CCD into a single contiguous element of up to 32 MB
  • Rearchitect core/cache communication into a ring system

 

AMD Zen 3 SoC Design

In addition to micro architectural improvements, Zen 3 (Vermeer) also features SoC design changes.

In Zen 2, each CCD (Compute Die) is made up of two CCX (core complexes), each with a 16 MB L3 cache.

Zen 3 uses a unified complex, in which each CCD now contains a single CCX with a unified 32 MB L3 cache.

This unified CCD design completely eliminates CCX-to-CCX communication, greatly improving core-to-core latency.

On the other hand, AMD reused the chiplet design, with one or two CCDs (fabricated on 7 nm) paired with a 12 nm IOD (I/O Die).

Reads from CCD to IO are still 2X write, to conserve die area and transistor budget. And it uses the same IOD from Matisse (Zen 2).

 

AMD Zen 3 Transistor Count + Die Size

The new Zen 3 CCD has 4.15 billion transistors, with a die size of 80.7 mm². That’s up from the 3.8 billion transistors and a die size of 74 mm² for the Zen 2 CCD.

The Matisse-era IOD remains the same – 2.09 billion transistors, with a die size of 125 mm².

They will both be manufactured using the same 7 nm TSMC process for CCD, and 12 nm Global Foundries process for IOD.

Core Die Zen 3 Zen 2
Process 7 nm TSMC
Transistors 4.15 billion 3.8 billion
Die Size 80.7 mm² 74 mm²
I/O Die Zen 3 Zen 2
Process 12 nm GoFlo
Transistors 2.09 billion
Die Size 125 mm²

 

AMD Zen 3 Precision Boost : No Change

Precision Boost 2 in Zen 3 remains the same as that of Zen 2, just with higher frequencies to “play with”.

It is an opportunistic boost algorithm that drives the loaded cores to the highest possible frequency, until it hits any one of these limits :

  • socket power
  • VRM thermal limit
  • VRM current limit
  • maximum clock speed

Precision Boost 2 will dynamically analyse and boost or dither the core clock speeds every 1 ms using the Infinity Fabric command and control functions.

In this example of the new Ryzen 9 5900X with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 4.8 GHz, Precision Boost 2 will typically result in frequencies of 4.4 GHz to 4.6 GHz, even with 24 threads running at the same time.

 

AMD Zen 3 Voltage Range : No Change

Despite the changes in the microarchitecture and SoC design, Zen 3 processors will continue to be engineered with the same voltage range as Zen- and Zen 2-based processors.

The typical voltage range will vary according to usage, but basically, Zen 3 processors, like the Ryzen 5000 series, will support 0.2 V to 1.5 V.

 

AMD Zen 3 Temperature Range : No Change

AMD Zen 3-based processors will also have the same temperature ranges as Zen- and Zen 2-based processors.

Note : The temperature range below assumes an enclosed chassis, and an air-conditioned room.

 

AMD Zen 3 Memory Overclocking : No Change

Only the Zen 3 core chiplet die (CCD) is new in the Ryzen 5000 series processors. They continue to use the same IO die (IOD) as the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors.

Therefore, the relationship between Infinity Fabric Clock (fclk), Memory Controller Clock (uclk) and Memory Clock (mclk) remains the same.

For optimal performance, they are synchronous – in a 1:1:1 ratio. But users can choose a 1:1:2 ratio if they have trouble overclocking memory.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Series : Built On Zen 3

The AMD Ryzen 5000 series is designed using the new AMD Zen 3 architecture, which promises to deliver 19% more instructions per cycle (IPC) over the last generation, thanks to these new features :

  • improved load / store performance and flexibility
  • double the size of directly-accessible L3 cache per core
  • a unified 8-core complex (CCX) with direct access to the 32 MB L3 cache
  • wider issue in floating point and integer engines
  • Zero Bubble branch prediction

Unboxing The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X comes in a slimmer box, because it doesn’t come with any bundled cooler.

The last-generation Ryzen 9 3900X, you may recall, came with the Wraith Prism cooler.

 

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Up Close!

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X has sixteen Ryzen processor cores, with a 3.4 GHz base clock, and a 4.9 GHz boost clock.

It has a 105 watt TDP, and supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), which means it can handle up to 32 threads simultaneously.

Like the 3rd Gen Ryzen, it has 512 KB L2 cache per core, for an 8 MB L2 cache size; and a massive 64 MB L3 cache.

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X can be installed unto existing AMD 500 series motherboards, and later, the AMD 400 series as well, after a simple BIOS update.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

Like the Ryzen 7 5800X, the Ryzen 9 5950X broke past the 600 mark, and was 22.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X.

Because it has a 11.4% higher boost clock, that works out to a 10% better performance per clock, over the last-generation Ryzen.

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

A score of almost 9900! That makes it 66% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, and 2X faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X, both 8-core, 16-thread processors.

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

For some reason, the Ryzen 9 5950X doesn’t benefit at all from its SMT capability.

That’s why it only has a 66% performance advantage over the Ryzen 7 5800X, despite having twice as many cores.

 

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X : Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

Very nice! The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X was 30% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, 44% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 74% faster than Ryzen 7 2700X.

 

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X : Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop 2020 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

This is a huge boost in performance! The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X was 87% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, 2.33X faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 2.67X faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

Synthetic Game Test : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X was 5% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X20% faster than Ryzen 7 3700X, and 40% faster than Ryzen 7 2700X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X was 20% faster than Ryzen 7 5800X, 81% faster than Ryzen 7 3700X, and 2.3X faster than Ryzen 7 2700X and Core i7-8700K.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score… Obviously, CPU performance only has a small effect at this resolution.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019. We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X delivered 6% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 12% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 2700X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution though, the effect of CPU performance was negligible, even with the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had no effect. The game was graphics-limited, not CPU-limited.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that! The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X topped this comparison, tying with the Ryzen 7 5800X.

It delivered 16% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 20% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, it really didn’t matter that much which processor we used. They all performed about the same.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had absolutely no effect. The game was completely graphics-limited.

 

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is a third-person shooter game, released in August 2018. We tested it in three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

CPU performance had only a small effect on frame rates in Strange Brigade, even at 1080p.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, they were virtually all equal in performance. The game was already graphics-limited.

2160p Gaming Resolution

It was the same at 4K, of course – the game was completely graphics-limited.

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter game, released in February 2019. We tested it in three resolutions using the Ultra settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Metro Exodus is graphics-intensive, so CPU performance has limited effect on its frame rate.

1440p Gaming Resolution

All of the processors performed the same at 1440p, with a slight edge to the Core i7-8700K.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K, the game was completely graphics-limited, so it didn’t matter which processor we tested.

 

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

In this game, the single core CPU performance has a significant effect on the actual frame rate.

We tested it on three resolutions using the DirectX 12 API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that! The Ryzen 9 5950X delivered 9% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 5800X21% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K, and 23% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, the Ryzen 9 5950X delivered 7% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 5800X, and 23% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

2160p Gaming Resolution

Even at 4K, CPU performance mattered in Ashes of the Singularity. The Ryzen 9 5950X delivered just 2% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 5800X, and 14% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X : Our Verdict + Award!

Thanks to the new Zen 3 core optimisations and SoC design, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X offers a nice leap forward in performance.

It offers significantly better single-core and multi-core performance over the last generation, offering a nice boost to both content creation and gaming performance.

As our benchmark results show, the Ryzen 9 5950X offers a large performance boost over the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 2700X, and even the new Ryzen 7 5800X.

With 16 cores that support up to 32 threads, it barrels through everything thrown at it without a sweat.

But while AMD has highlighted the Ryzen 9 5950X as a great processor for gaming, it’s really best for serious content creation work.

It’s not that it won’t work well in games, it’s just overkill for games.

We cannot emphasise this great point about the Ryzen 9 5950X – even though it uses a new Zen 3 microarchitecture, it continues to use the AM4 socket.

If you have an existing AMD 500 Series motherboard, you can just pop in the Ryzen 9 5950X after a BIOS upgrade.

Those on AMD 400 Series motherboards will have to wait until Q1 2020, before they receive BIOS upgrades to support Zen 3.

In our Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X reviews, we pointed out that they were priced significantly higher than their predecessors.

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is priced at $799 (RM3,699) – a $50 (RM550) premium over the last-generation Ryzen 9 3950X, which had a launch price of $749 (RM3,149).

But this time, it comes with a free copy of the upcoming game – Far Cry 6 Standard Edition, which is priced at $56.99.

Paradoxically, this makes the Ryzen 9 5950X the best deal of the Ryzen 5000 series, if you can afford it, of course!

That’s why we believe it deserves our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, AMD!

So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X?

  • Buy : If you want the best possible 16-core processor for a new content creation system.
  • Buy : If you are upgrading from a first-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Buy : If you need more computing cores than your current system.
  • Consider : If you are upgrading from a second-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Skip : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.

Unboxing The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X comes in a slimmer box, because it doesn’t come with any bundled cooler.

The last-generation Ryzen 7 3800X, you may recall, came with the Wraith Prism cooler.

 

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Up Close!

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X has eight Ryzen processor cores, with a 3.8 GHz base clock, and a 4.7 GHz boost clock.

It has a 105 watt TDP, and supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), which means it can handle up to 16 threads simultaneously.

Like the 3rd Gen Ryzen, it has 512 KB L2 cache per core, for a 4 MB L2 cache size; and a large 32 MB L3 cache.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X can be installed unto existing AMD 500 series motherboards, and later, the AMD 400 series as well, after a simple BIOS update.

AMD Zen 3 Architecture

Codename Vermeer, Zen 3 is the next evolution of the Zen architecture, delivering a 19% improvement in instructions per clock (IPC) through these improvements :

Front-End Enhancements

  • Faster fetching, especially for branchy and large-footprint code
  • L1 branch target buffer doubled in size to 1024 entries for better prediction latency
  • Improved branch predictor bandwidth
  • Faster recovery from misprediction
  • “No bubble” prediction capabilities to make back-to-back predictions more quickly and better handle branchy code
  • Faster sequencing of op-cache fetches
  • Finer granularity in switching of op-cache pipes

Execution Engines

  • Reduce latency and enlarge structures to extract higher instruction-level parallelism (ILP)
  • New dedicated branch and st-data pickers for integer, now at 10 issues per cycle (+3 vs. Zen 2)
  • Larger integer window at +32 vs. Zen 2
  • Reduced latency for select float and int operations
  • Floating point has increased bandwidth by +2 for a total of 6-wide dispatch and issue
  • Floating point FMAC is now 1 cycle faster

Load Store

  • Larger structures and better prefetching to support the enhanced execution engine bandwidth
  • Overall higher bandwidth to feed the appetite of the larger/faster execution resources
  • Higher load bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1
  • Higher store bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1
  • More flexibility in load/store operations
  • Improved memory dependence detection
  • +4 table walkers in the TLB

SOC Architecture

  • Reduce dependency on main memory accesses, reduce core-to-core latency, reduce core-to-cache latency.
  • Unify all cores in a CCD into a single unified complex consisting of 4, 6, or 8 contiguous cores
  • Unify all L3 cache in a CCD into a single contiguous element of up to 32MB
  • Rearchitect core/cache communication into a ring system

 

AMD Zen 3 SoC Design

In addition to micro architectural improvements, Zen 3 (Vermeer) also features SoC design changes.

In Zen 2, each CCD (Compute Die) is made up of two CCX (core complexes), each with a 16 MB L3 cache.

Zen 3 uses a unified complex, in which each CCD now contains a single CCX with a unified 32 MB L3 cache.

This unified CCD design eliminates CCX-to-CCX communication, greatly improving core-to-core latency.

On the other hand, AMD reused the chiplet design, with one or two CCDs (fabricated on 7 nm) paired with a 12 nm IOD (I/O Die).

Reads from CCD to IO are still 2X write, to conserve die area and transistor budget. And it uses the same IOD from Matisse (Zen 2).

The new Zen 3 CCD has 4.15 billion transistors, with a die size of 80.7 mm². The Matisse-era IOD remains the same – 2.09 billion transistors, with a die size of 125 mm².

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

Look at that! What a phenomenal boost in single-core performance!

The Ryzen 7 5800X broke past the 600 mark, and was 22.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X, even though it only has a 6.8% higher boost clock!

That works out to a 14.7% better performance per clock, over the last-generation Ryzen.

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

A score of almost 6000! That’s 23.6% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X, which is also an 8-core, 16-thread processor.

It was actually 58.8% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which makes it a great upgrade for the older 8-core, 16-thread processor.

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

Interestingly, the Ryzen 7 5800X has better SMT performance than the Ryzen 5 5600X, even though they both use a single CCD.

 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

That’s a nice speed bump! The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 10.4% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 33.8% faster than Ryzen 7 2700X.

 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop 2020 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

This is a big boost in performance! The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 24.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 42.3% faster than both Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 5600X.

Synthetic Game Test : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 14.3% faster than Ryzen 7 3700X, and 33% faster than Ryzen 7 2700X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 20% faster than Ryzen 7 3700X, and 40% faster than Ryzen 5 5600X.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score… Obviously, CPU performance only has a small effect at this resolution.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019. We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 6.5% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 12.5% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 2700X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution though, the effect of CPU performance was negligible, even with the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had no effect. The game was graphics-limited, not CPU-limited.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that! The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X topped this comparison, tying with the Ryzen 5 5600X.

It delivered 17% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 21% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, it really didn’t matter that much which processor we used. They all performed about the same.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had absolutely no effect. The game was completely graphics-limited.

 

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is a third-person shooter game, released in August 2018. We tested it in three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

CPU performance had only a small effect on frame rates in Strange Brigade, even at 1080p.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, they were virtually all equal in performance. The game was already graphics-limited.

2160p Gaming Resolution

It was the same at 4K, of course – the game was completely graphics-limited.

  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Metro Exodus is graphics-intensive, so CPU performance has limited effect on its frame rate.

1440p Gaming Resolution

All of the processors performed the same at 1440p, with a slight edge to the Core i7-8700K.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K, the game was completely graphics-limited, so it didn’t matter which processor we tested.

 

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

In this game, the single core CPU performance has a significant effect on the actual frame rate.

  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160

1080p Gaming Resolution

Nice! The Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 11% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K, and 13% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, the Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 15.5% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

2160p Gaming Resolution

Even at 4K, CPU performance mattered in Ashes of the Singularity. The Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 12% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Our Verdict!

Thanks to the new Zen 3 core optimisations and SoC design, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X offers a nice leap forward in performance.

Its single-core performance has been improved significantly over its predecessors, and so has its multi-core performance, offering a nice boost to both content creation and gaming performance.

Gamers will favour the cheaper Ryzen 5 5600X, but this is a great option for those who also need serious multi-core performance for content creation work.

It offers a large performance boost over the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 2700X in both content creation and gaming performance.

Another great point about the Ryzen 7 5800X – even though it uses a new microarchitecture, it continues to use the AM4 socket

If you have an existing AMD 500 Series motherboard, you can pop it in after a BIOS upgrade.

Those on AMD 400 Series motherboards will have to wait until Q1 2020, before they receive BIOS upgrades to support Zen 3.

But while the Ryzen 7 5800X’s performance may be a leap forward, so is its price tag…

You may recall that the last-generation Ryzen 7 3800X had a launch price of $399 (RM1,799), with a nice Wraith Prism cooler.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X costs substantially more at $449 (RM2,049), and no longer comes with a very nice bundled cooler!

On the other hand, it comes with a free copy of the upcoming game – Far Cry 6 Standard Edition...

So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X?

  • Buy : If you want the best possible 8-core processor for a new gaming or content creation system.
  • Buy : If you are upgrading from a first-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Buy : If you need more computing cores than your current system.
  • Consider : If you are upgrading from a second-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Skip : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.

Those on a budget can consider purchasing a Ryzen 7 3700X. It may be slower for sure, but the money you save can be used towards the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card!

AMD Zen 3 Architecture

Codename Vermeer, Zen 3 is the next evolution of the Zen architecture, delivering a 19% improvement in instructions per clock (IPC) through these improvements :

Front-End Enhancements

  • Faster fetching, especially for branchy and large-footprint code 
  • L1 branch target buffer doubled in size to 1024 entries for better prediction latency 
  • Improved branch predictor bandwidth 
  • Faster recovery from misprediction 
  • “No bubble” prediction capabilities to make back-to-back predictions more quickly and better handle branchy code 
  • Faster sequencing of op-cache fetches 
  • Finer granularity in switching of op-cache pipes

Execution Engines

  • Reduce latency and enlarge structures to extract higher instruction-level parallelism (ILP)
  • New dedicated branch and st-data pickers for integer, now at 10 issues per cycle (+3 vs. Zen 2)
  • Larger integer window at +32 vs. Zen 2
  • Reduced latency for select float and int operations
  • Floating point has increased bandwidth by +2 for a total of 6-wide dispatch and issue
  • Floating point FMAC is now 1 cycle faster

Load Store

  • Larger structures and better prefetching to support the enhanced execution engine bandwidth 
  • Overall higher bandwidth to feed the appetite of the larger/faster execution resources 
  • Higher load bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1 
  • Higher store bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1 
  • More flexibility in load/store operations 
  • Improved memory dependence detection 
  • +4 table walkers in the TLB

SOC Architecture

  • Reduce dependency on main memory accesses, reduce core-to-core latency, reduce core-to-cache latency.
  • Unify all cores in a CCD into a single unified complex consisting of 4, 6, or 8 contiguous cores 
  • Unify all L3 cache in a CCD into a single contiguous element of up to 32MB 
  • Rearchitect core/cache communication into a ring system

 

AMD Zen 3 SoC Design

In addition to micro architectural improvements, Zen 3 (Vermeer) also features SoC design changes.

In Zen 2, each CCD (Compute Die) is made up of two CCX (core complexes), each with a 16 MB L3 cache.

Zen 3 uses a unified complex, in which each CCD now contains a single CCX with a unified 32 MB L3 cache.

This unified CCD design eliminates CCX-to-CCX communication, greatly improving core-to-core latency.

On the other hand, AMD reused the chiplet design, with one or two CCDs (fabricated on 7 nm) paired with a 12 nm IOD (I/O Die).

Reads from CCD to IO are still 2X write, to conserve die area and transistor budget. And it uses the same IOD from Matisse (Zen 2).

The new Zen 3 CCD has 4.15 billion transistors, with a die size of 80.7 mm². The Matisse-era IOD remains the same – 2.09 billion transistors, with a die size of 125 mm².

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

Look at that! What a phenomenal boost in single-core performance!

The Ryzen 5 5600X was 19.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X, even though it only has a 4.5% higher boost clock!

That works out to a 14.3% better performance per clock, over the last-generation Ryzen.

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

This is very good performance for a 6-core processor, performing just 12.6% slower than the Ryzen 7 3700X, which is an 8-core, 16-thread processor.

More so when you realise that it was actually 12.3% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is an older 8-core, 16-thread processor.

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

While the Zen 3 microarchitecture gave it a big boost in single core performance, its SMT performance appears to have taken a slight hit.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X : Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

Look at that! Despite having just six cores, the Ryzen 5 5600X was slightly faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which has 8 cores.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X : Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop 2020 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

Even though it was a 6-core processor, the Ryzen 5 5600X was just slightly slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which has 8 cores. Impressive!

Synthetic Game Test : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X was 5% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X, and 5% faster than the Core i7-8700K.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X was 8.3% faster than both the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Core i7-8700K.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score… Obviously, CPU performance only has a small effect at this resolution.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019. We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X delivered 6.5% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 12.5% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 2700X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution though, the effect of CPU performance was negligible, even with the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had no effect. The game was graphics-limited, not CPU-limited.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that! The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X delivered the best performance in this comparison, matching the Ryzen 7 5800X.

It delivered 17% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 21% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, it really didn’t matter that much which processor we used. They all performed about the same.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had absolutely no effect. The game was completely graphics-limited.

 

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is a third-person shooter game, released in August 2018. We tested it in three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

CPU performance had only a small effect on frame rates in Strange Brigade, even at 1080p.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, they were virtually all equal in performance. The game was already graphics-limited.

2160p Gaming Resolution

It was the same at 4K, of course – the game was completely graphics-limited.

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter game, released in February 2019. We tested it in three resolutions using the Ultra settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Metro Exodus is graphics-intensive, so CPU performance has limited effect on its frame rate.

1440p Gaming Resolution

All of the processors performed the same at 1440p, with a slight edge to the Core i7-8700K.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K, the game was completely graphics-limited, so it didn’t matter which processor we tested.

 

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

In this game, the single core CPU performance has a significant effect on the actual frame rate.

We tested it on three resolutions using the DirectX 12 API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160

1080p Gaming Resolution

Nice! The Ryzen 5 5600X was almost as fast as the Ryzen 7 5800X, and delivered 9.4% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K, and 11.3% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, the Ryzen 5 5600X delivered 12.8% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

2160p Gaming Resolution

Even at 4K, CPU performance mattered in Ashes of the Singularity. The Ryzen 5 5600X delivered 9.2% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X : Our Verdict + Award!

There is no doubt that the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is a leap forward for AMD, thanks to the new Zen 3 core and SoC design.

Its single-core performance has been improved significantly over its predecessors, offering a nice boost to content creation and gaming performance.

Gamers, in particular, will favour this model over the Ryzen 7 5800X because it delivers the same gaming performance at 2/3rds the cost.

It also handily beats the Ryzen 7 3700X in gaming performance, making it a better option for gaming systems.

Even though the Ryzen 5 5600X uses a new microarchitecture, it continues to use the AM4 socket and will support AMD 500 Series chipsets on launch day (with a BIOS upgrade).

That’s really great news for those planning to upgrade from their existing Ryzen processors.

Those on AMD 400 Series motherboards will have to wait until Q1 2020, before they receive BIOS upgrades to support Zen 3.

But while the Ryzen 5 5600X’s performance may be a leap forward, so is its price tag…

You may recall that the last-generation Ryzen 5 3600X had a launch price of $249 (RM859), with a Wraith Spire cooler.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X costs substantially more at $299 (RM1,349), and ships with the smaller and cheaper Wraith Stealth cooler.

That said, the Ryzen 5 5600X truly provides a significant boost in performance, and it deserves our Reviewer’s Choice Award.

So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X?

  • Buy : If you want the best possible 6-core processor for a new gaming system.
  • Buy : If you are upgrading from a first-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Consider : If you are upgrading from a second-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Skip : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.

Those on a budget can consider purchasing a Ryzen 5 3600X. It may not be as fast, but the money you save can be used towards the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card!

 

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X : Price + Availability

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor is available for sale starting 5 November 2020, at these RRP inclusive of tax :

AMD Athlon Gold 3150C + Athlon Silver 3050C Revealed!

AMD just introduced the Athlon Gold 3150C and Athlon Silver 3050C mobile processors with Radeon Graphics!

Here is what you need to know about the new AMD Athlon 3000 C-Series mobile APUs!

 

Athlon Gold 3150C + Athlon Silver 3050C : Zen Comes To Chromebooks!

The two new AMD Athlon 3000 C-Series mobile processors come with integrated Radeon Graphics cores. That makes them APUs, instead of pure processors.

Built on the older Zen architecture and fabricated on the 14 nm process technology, they are designed to power Chromebooks.

At launch, AMD is introducing these two Athlon 3000 C-Series processors, both with a 15 W TDP :

  • AMD Athlon Gold 3150C : 2C/4T | up to 3.3 GHz | 5 MB cache | 3 graphics cores
  • AMD Athlon Silver 3050C : 2C/2T | up to 3.2 GHz | 5 MB cache | 2 graphics cores

These Athlon 3000 C-Series processors will be used in mid-level Chromebooks, offering better performance than the old AMD A-Series APUs, but less than the AMD Ryzen 3000 C-Series processors.

The AMD A-Series APUs, with a 6 W TDP, will continue to ship in entry-level Chromebooks.

Although they are not part of these processors, Chromebooks based on the AMD Athlon 3000 C-Series will feature Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 connectivity.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO : Performance

Threadripper PRO 3945WX

According to AMD, the “baby” of the family will offer 12% better single-threaded performance in CINEBENCH R20, and 28% better multi-threaded performance than a competing 12-core Intel Xeon processor.

They say that this is targeted at those whose software is licensed on a per-core basis. Its high performance per core will allow for better performance, without resorting to more cores and corresponding licence fees.

Threadripper PRO 3955WX

AMD also showed how the 16-core 3955WX can render 14% faster than an 18-core Intel Xeon processor.

Threadripper PRO 3995WX

AMD compared the flagship Threadripper PRO 3995WX with its 64 cores against two Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 processors, with 56 cores.

In the SPECviewperf13 benchmark, that 8-core, 16-thread advantage gave the 3995WX a performance advantage between 4% and 37%.

AMD Ryzen XT : Our First Impressions

To be honest, the AMD Ryzen XT processors don’t really excite us that much, and here’s why…

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT

The Ryzen 9 3900XT has a slightly faster boost clock and loses its bundled cooler. Yet it costs $50 more than the Ryzen 9 3900X.

It would be better to stick with the cheaper Ryzen 9 3900 – you won’t notice the difference. And in case it’s not “fast enough” (seriously?), you can just overclock it.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT

This is the second-best Ryzen XT model of the trio, offering a 200 MHz faster boost clock than the Ryzen 7 3800X at the same price point.

You are basically trading the bundled Wraith Prism RGB cooler for a 200 MHz faster boost clock.

Frankly, unless you are planning to use water cooling, it might be a better idea to just buy the Ryzen 7 3800X and overclock using its Wraith Prism RGB cooler.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT

This is really the best Ryzen XT model, offering a slightly faster boost clock with a better Wraith Spire cooler, at the same price as the Ryzen 5 3600X.

That makes the Ryzen 5 3600X completely pointless. We wouldn’t be surprised if AMD drops price on the Ryzen 5 3600X, or removes it from the line-up.

 

AMD Ryzen XT : Free Game Changes Dynamics!

AMD’s surprise announcement that they will bundle a free copy of the upcoming AAA game – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – changed everything.

If you are a gamer planning to buy this game, then it’s a great deal, because the game costs US$59.99 / £49.99 / RM 189.99!

Unfortunately, the Ryzen 5 3600XT does NOT qualify for the free game… 🙁

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT Unboxed!

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) comes in a large retail box, bundled with an AMD Wraith Spire cooler inside.

When you fully unbox it, this is what you will find inside :

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT processor
  • AMD Wraith Spire CPU cooler
  • AMD Ryzen 5 case badge
  • AMD desktop CPU installation sheet

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT Hands-On Experience!

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) has six Ryzen processor cores, with a 3.8 GHz base clock, and a 4.5 GHz boost clock.

It supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), and can therefore handle 12 threads simultaneously. It also has a 95W TDP.

Like the previous generations, it has 512 KB L2 cache per core, with a total L2 cache size of 3 MB. But thanks to a larger transistor budget, it has a very large 32 MB L3 cache – twice that of the last-generation 2nd Gen Ryzen processors!

Like all other 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processors, AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT still uses the AMD AM4 socket, and is drop-in compatible with existing AM4 motherboards.

You can just swap out your existing 3rd Gen Ryzen processor and drop in this processor without a BIOS update. If you are upgrading an older motherboard, make sure first update its BIOS to support the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

Its high base clock and large L3 cache appears to give the Ryzen 5 3600XT an advantage over the other processors in the single core test, besting the Ryzen 7 2700X by 22.7%.

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

This is very good performance for a 6-core processor, performing just 4.4% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is an 8-core, 16-thread processor.

But note that it is just 2.2% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X. Its performance advantages are mainly due to microarchitecture improvements in the 3rd Gen Ryzen.

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

While performing better than the Ryzen 7 2700X, the Ryzen 5 3600XT does not do as well as the Ryzen 3 3300X, which has all of its processor cores in the same CCD (Core Chipset Die).

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

Despite having just six cores, the Ryzen 5 3600XT is 91.3% as fast as the Ryzen 7 2700X, which has 8 cores.

But notably, it’s just 1.4% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop CC 14 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

As a 6-core processor, the Ryzen 5 3600XT did well, coming within 17.6% of the 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X.

It also had a slightly wider 4% performance advantage over the Ryzen 5 3600X..

Synthetic Game Test : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT was just 5.2% slower than the Core i7-8700K, and 16.9% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Surprisingly, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT actually edged out the Core i7-8700K, and was just 2% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT was just 3.2% slower than the Core i7-8700K, and 5.4% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score…

At 4K, it was neck-to-neck with the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 2700X. Obviously, CPU performance only has a small effect at this resolution.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a relatively recent racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. This is why the number of CPU cores don’t really matter when it comes to games. CPU performance has only a small effect on the frame rate.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the importance of CPU performance was even smaller.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT did well, tying with the Core i7-8700K and Ryzen 5 3600X. But as you can see, the effect of CPU performance on frame rate is small, even at 1080p.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, it really didn’t matter that much which processor you used.

 

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

In this game, the single core CPU performance has a significant effect on the actual frame rate.

We tested it on three resolutions using the DirectX 12 API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

Showcasing the importance of single-core performance, the Ryzen 5 3600X came within 7% of the Core i7-8700K.

But note that it was just 1.5% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X, and just 3.5% faster than the Ryzen 3 3300X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the Ryzen 5 3600X was just 6.2% slower than the Core i7-8700K, and just 1.8% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X, and 6.7% faster than the Ryzen 3 3300X.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : Our Verdict!

Built around the Zen 2 microarchitecture, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) uses a chiplet design which combines 7 nm and 12 nm parts to deliver a more powerful, and power-efficient processor at a great price point.

The end result is significantly better single-core and multi-core performance over previous generation Ryzen processors.

There is no doubt that this 6-core, 12-thread processor offers great performance at a great price point, with a better Wraith Spire cooler to boot.

That said, we cannot understand why AMD would bother coming up with it in the first place.

On paper, it only offers a 100 MHz faster boost clock and a better Wraith Spire cooler over the existing Ryzen 5 3600X.

In real life, that translates into a negligible 1%~4% performance advantage over the Ryzen 5 3600X that no one will really notice.

Think of the Ryzen 5 3600XT as the Ryzen 5 3600X with a better Wraith Spire cooler… and a FREE game!

So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY)?

  • Buy : If it is the same price as the Ryzen 5 3600X, or at most 5% more expensive
  • Consider : If you are upgrading from a first-generation or second-generation Ryzen.
  • Avoid : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor, especially for a gaming system

Another alternative would be to purchase a Ryzen 5 3600X, especially if it is 10-15% cheaper.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : Where To Buy?

Here are the official prices for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) processor, which will be available for purchase starting 7 July 2020.

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : $249 / ~£198 / ~A$361 / RM 1,199

AMD 25×20 Initiative : Goals FAR Exceeded!

AMD just announced that they FAR exceeded the goals of the 25×20 initiative they set in 2014.

Join us for a quick video overview of the AMD 25×20 Initiative, and how far they exceeded those goals!

 

AMD 25×20 Initiative : What Is It?

Back in 2014, AMD mobile APUs were widely panned for their poor energy efficiency. That ensured the continued dominance of Intel mobile processors in the laptop market.

So they challenged themselves to dramatically improve the real-world energy efficiency of their mobile processors, setting the moonshot goal of delivering at least 25 times better energy efficiency by the year 2020.

That is essentially the crux of the AMD 25×20 initiative.

 

AMD 25×20 Initiative : Goals FAR Exceeded!

Six years later, AMD announced that they far exceeded the goals of their 25×20 initiative.

With the introduction of their 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 4000 series of mobile APUs (codenamed Renoir), they actually delivered 31.7X more energy efficiency!

AMD achieved their 25×20 goals by delivering :

  • New CPU and GPU architectures tightly integrated into a common SoC
  • New innovations in real-time power management
  • Continued evolution of the AMD Infinity Fabric architecture
  • Silicon-level power optimizations
  • Rapid adoption of the latest process technologies (28nm > 14nm > 12nm > 7nm)

 

AMD 25×20 Initiative : The Impact

To illustrate the impact of this leap in energy efficiency, AMD shared these calculations.

If an enterprise upgrades 50,000 AMD laptops from 2014 models to 2020 models, it would save approximately 1.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity and 971,000 kg of carbon emissions,

That would be roughly equivalent to growing 16,000 trees for 10 years!

Intel Foveros 3D Stacking Technology : A Quick Primer!

The new Intel Lakefield hybrid processors use Foveros 3D stacking technology to create such compact and power-efficient processors.

Here is a quick primer on Intel Foveros, and how it lets Intel stack different components into such a tiny chip!

 

Intel Foveros : What Is It?

Intel Foveros is a 3D stacking technology that basically stacks combines two or more dies into a single package, to offer :

  • Standby power 1/10th of competing designs
  • 50% better graphics performance
  • 40% core area reduction
  • 40% Z height reduction

 

Intel Foveros : 3D Stacking Explained!

Intel Foveros more accurately refers to how they stack the two logic dies, using the Foveros connection.

The Base Die, which consists of logic for audio, USB, USF 3.x and PCI Gen 3 controllers, are manufactured on the Intel P1222 process, which is a 22nm FinFET Low Power process, optimised for low current leakage.

The Compute Die on top has the four Tremont low-power cores, and single Sunny Cove high-performance core, as well as up to 64 Gen11 graphics cores. This die is fabricated on P1274 – their 10 nm process technology.

Intel then stacks up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X memory on top of this Foveros-stacked package using standard Package-on-Package (PoP) stacking technology.

This Intel video shows how they manufacture Foveros packages, and turn them into processors.

 

Intel Foveros : First Used In Intel Lakefield

The first processors to use Foveros is the Intel Lakefield hybrid processors, which stacks two logic dies with two DRAM layers, creating a package that is only 12 cubic mm in volume!

This allows them to create a single-sided compute board that is just 30 x 123 mm in size, with standby power as low as 2.5 mW!

Fact Check : AMD Ryzen 4000 Will Use 5nm TSMC Process?

Is it true that the upcoming AMD Ryzen 4000 (Zen 3) desktop processors will be fabricated on the 5nm TSMC process, instead of 7nm as announced? Let’s find out!

 

AMD Ryzen 4000 : Zen 2 | Zen 3

At CES 2020, AMD launched the Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors, which only just kicked off after delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

AMD is expected to introduce the Ryzen 4000 family of desktop processors, built on a newer Zen 3 microarchitecture, later this year.

AMD’s naming convention confuses people, because the Ryzen 4000 mobile processors are 3rd Gen Ryzen processors, while the upcoming Ryzen 4000 desktop processors will be 4th Gen Ryzen processors.

To make it easier for you to understand, we created this table to differentiate the two processor families.

Specifications Ryzen 4000
Desktop
Ryzen 4000
Mobile
Ryzen Generation 4th Gen 3rd Gen
Microarchitecture Zen 3 Zen 2
Fabrication Process Improved 7 nm 7 nm
Launch Date Late 2020 Jan 2020

 

DigiTimes : AMD Ryzen 4000 Will Use 5nm TSMC Process

A DigiTimes article, purportedly translated and posted by RetiredEngineer, claimed that the next-generation AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop processors, using the Zen 3 microarchitecture, will be fabricated on the brand-new 5nm process technology, instead of 7nm as announced earlier.

Rumor has it that AMD and TSMC have adjusted their foundry blueprints. The Ryzen 4000 series of desktop processors originally expected to launch at the end of 2020 will now use TSMC’s enhanced 5nm process (5nm Plus) instead of 7nm EUV, clearly demonstrating that AMD is now considered a tier-one customer for TSMC.

This new development confirms earlier news that TSMC, which only recently entered the 5nm era in April, is accelerating its enhanced 5nm process, bringing forward the mass production schedule to 4Q; and the enhanced 5nm Ryzen series processors will also put unprecedented pressure on Intel. Both TSMC and AMD declined to comment on rumors.

In the first quarter of 2020, AMD benefitted from the pandemic, which boosted demand due to the work-from-home economy. PC and server sales exceeded expectations; Ryzen and EPYC series processors shipments were strong, driving first quarter revenue up by 40% compared to the same period in 2019. Earnings were also better than market expectations.

Despite AMD’s conservative outlook for Q2, with revenue estimates between $1.75B and $1.95B, it is still up by 21% compared with the same period in 2019, and up 4% sequentially, still a good result despite the traditional low season for PCs and the impact of the pandemic.

As understood, AMD’s desktop and server shipments have strengthened across the board since the second half of 2019, and demand has exceeded market expectations. Even AMD themselves and TSMC were caught by surprise. This has led to significant improvements in AMD’s profitability. TSMC happily welcomes the growing strength of its chip customers.

According to sources in the semiconductor industry, AMD had announced a comprehensive partnership with TSMC for sub-7nm processes, and has also confirmed mass production schedules for 7nm, 7nm EUV, 5nm and 3nm products. However, beyond expectations, AMD’s performance took a Great Leap Forward over the last one and a half years. Board, PC and server manufacturers significantly increased their ‘weightage’ (adoption of AMD products relative to others), in part due to Intel’s chip shortages. More importantly, the partnership with TSMC resulted in drastically improved product performance and yield, as well as price competitiveness for AMD, leading to rising shipments and market share quarter after quarter.

In 2020, because of the huge increase in sales, AMD has been urgently chasing after TSMC to expedite orders. The size of those orders were not small, becoming the greatest fallback for TSMC, which got caught in the Huawei ban crisis, making demand and production planning extremely difficult. As a result, TSMC is also adjusting (broadening) its services for AMD, and in considering the optimum allocation of production capacity, modified the process plans for AMD’s products.

As understood, TSMC has entered the 5nm era since April. The enhanced version of 5nm will also enter mass production in Q4, ahead of market expectations, and the first customer to adopt it is AMD, with its new Ryzen 4000 series processors.

AMD’s new generation Ryzen 4000 series processor (codenamed Vermeer), originally planned to use 7nm EUV, will be unveiled around Sep-Oct, but in line with the mass production schedule of TSMC’s enhanced 5nm process, will only be launched at the end of the year or during CES in Jan 2021.

According to semiconductor industry players, AMD plonked down a lot of money to enter the enhanced 5nm era, hoping to build upon its success and expand its leadership in advanced process technology before Intel’s 10nm process is fully deployed and 7nm process is yet to debut, once again capitalising on the narrative around introduction of advanced process technology and performance/efficiency improvements, to narrow its market share with Intel.

Judging by AMD’s current momentum and product performance, the enhanced 5nm Ryzen series processors will put unprecedented pressure on Intel. If Intel does not cut prices or accelerate the introduction of 10nm desktop processors, its empire may be gradually eroded by AMD, ushering in the biggest change in the global PC platform competitive landscape in 15 years: AMD’s market share can be expected to reach historical highs.

Separately, Nvidia has finally joined the 7nm bandwagon recently, entering full production in the second half of the year, while 5nm capacity continues to be reserved for Apple and HiSilicon, although the status of HiSilicon’s orders after Q4 is unknown due to the heightened US ban on Huawei.

Now, we have not directly seen the DigiTimes article, so we cannot vouch for its authenticity. We only have this picture to go by :

 

5 Reasons Why AMD Ryzen 4000 Will NOT Use 5nm TSMC Process

We have no idea whether the DigiTimes article exists, or was translated accurately, but we seriously doubt it will happen. Here’s why…

Reason #1 : AMD Unlikely To Delay Ryzen 4000 Desktop Launch To 2021

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed at CES 2020 that Zen 3 will debut in 2020, most likely around October to make it in time for the year-end holiday season.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the consumer launch of the Ryzen 4000 mobile processors, it is unlikely to delay the launch of the Ryzen 4000 desktop processors until early 2021.

Reason #2 : Desktop Ryzen Processors Don’t “Need” 5nm

While shrinking die size is generally a good thing, desktop processors like the upcoming 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 CPUs do not “need” a die shrink.

The focus will be on achieving high clock speeds at lower costs. That’s why the 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 desktop processors use a chiplet design – the CPU dies are fabricated on 7nm, while the I/O die is fabricated on 12nm.

A matured and improved 7nm process would allow the 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 processors to deliver higher clock speeds at a much lower cost than a new 5nm process.

Reason #3 : Mobile Ryzen Processors Will Likely Be First To Use 5nm

AMD is strongest in the desktop and HEDT segment, outperforming Intel by sheer brute force, thanks to the higher number of cores in their desktop Ryzen and Threadripper processors.

They are weakest in the mobile market, with Intel mobile processors still controlling the vast majority of the market.

To seriously take on Intel in this critical segment, AMD would probably leverage the costly 5nm process to give their future Ryzen 5000 mobile processors a significant advantage in both performance and power consumption.

Reason #4 : 5nm Not That Advantageous Over Improved 7nm

While a 5nm transistor node sounds like it will offer 28.5% smaller transistors than a 7nm node, the difference in reality is much smaller.

That’s partly because the transistor sizes – 7nm, 5nm – are really marketing terms, not precise engineering definitions – and partly because of diminishing returns.

In any case, the TSMC 5nm process promises to offer 25% better performance over 7nm, but their improved 7nm process will offer at least 10% better performance over 7nm.

In other words, the net performance difference between the TSMC 5nm and improved TSMC 7nm (N7+) is just 13.6%. The cost of 5nm would, no doubt, be far more than improved 7nm.

Reason #5 : 5nm Yields Are Still Poor

Another thing to consider with a new transistor node is yield. This is the problem Intel had with their 10nm process technology – poor yield.

As of December 2019, the 5nm TSMC process has an average yield per wafer of ~80% with a tiny die size of 17.92 mm2. That yield goes down to an abysmal 32% with a 100 mm2 die size.

While no one knows how big the Zen 3 die will be, it is safe to say it will be closer to 100 mm2. The Zen 2 die, for example, is 74 mm2 in size.

Will AMD risk the success of their 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 desktop processors on TSMC hitting reasonable yields on 5 nm? We think not!

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Review : Quite The Bargain @ $120!

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is more than just a slightly amped version of the Ryzen 3 3100. And it is quite the bargain at $120!

Find out why we gave this new AMD Ryzen 3 processor our Editor’s Choice Award!

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : Official Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the official AMD Ryzen 3 3300X tech briefing by AMD Ryzen Product Marketing Manager, Erin Maiorino.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : Key Features

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is a quad-core processor, with a 3.8 GHz base clock, and a 4.3 GHz boost clock.

It supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), and can therefore handle up to 8 threads at the same time.

New Chiplet Design

Unlike the previous Zen and Zen+ microarchitectures, Zen 2 uses a chiplet design that combines separate CPU chiplets with an I/O chiplet, using Infinity Fabric to connect them.

This chiplet design allows the performance-critical CPU chiplet to be fabricated on the 7 nm TSMC process, while the I/O functions are fabricated on the less expensive 12 nm GlobalFoundries process.

The new I/O chiplet adds PCIe 4.0 support, offering 24 lanes that can be increased to 40 lanes, when paired with the new AMD X570 motherboard.

4+0 CCX Configuration

Unlike the Ryzen 3 3100, the Ryzen 3 3300X uses a 4+0 CCX configuration. That means it uses a single CCX (Core Complex).

Its four cores directly communicate with each other, and share the same 16 MB L3 cache, allowing it to deliver better performance with lower latencies, than the Ryzen 3 3100.

TDP + Bundled Cooler

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X has a 65 watt TDP, which can be reduced to 45 watts using Ryzen Eco Mode. And it comes bundled with the Wraith Stealth cooler.

Socket AM4

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X continues to use the AMD AM4 socket, and is backward compatible with AMD 400 Series motherboards, as well as the new X570 and B550 chipsets.
