AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Review Roundup

Written on November 5, 2020 by Matt Bach


On October 8th, AMD announced the new Ryzen 5000 Series processors with a range of advancements including a 19% improvement in IPC (instructions per clock) and unified 8-core complex among others. While the announcement was focused primarily on gaming performance, they did also promote performance improvements of 5% in Premiere Pro, 12% in V-Ray, 27% in SolidWorks, and 9% in GCC compile times.

To verify these performance claims and to see how they do in a range of other real-world scenarios, we have reviews looking at a number of applications across video and photo editing, game development, photogrammetry, and more. While this post includes a summary for each entry, we highly recommend reading the full article for programs you are interested in as we go into much greater detail in the individual reviews.

Labs Open Office Hour: Labs Lads Discuss the New AMD Ryzen 5000-Series CPU Launch

If you want to see the full specs for the new AMD Ryzen 5000-series processors, we recommend checking out AMD's page for these new CPUs. But at a glance, here are what we consider to be the most important specs:

Cores/Threads Max Boost Clock TDP MSRP
Ryzen 5 3600XT 6/12 4.5GHz 95W $249
Ryzen 5 5600X 6/12 4.5GHz 65W $299
Ryzen 7 3800XT 8/16 4.7GHz 105W $399
Ryzen 7 5800X 8/16 4.7GHz 105W $449
Ryzen 9 3900XT 12/24 4.7GHz 105W $499
Ryzen 9 5900X 12/24 4.8GHz 105W $549
Ryzen 9 3950X 16/32 4.7GHz 105W $749
Ryzen 9 5950X 16/32 4.9GHz 105W $799

Something to keep in mind is that specs are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of actual performance. While the core counts and even max boost frequency haven't changed much, the 19% IPC improvement AMD is advertising may automatically make each of the new CPUs up to 19% faster than the previous generation. With the changes to the cache structure and other behind-the-scenes upgrades, the difference with the new CPUs should be much more dramatic than the basic specs show.

Adobe Photoshop

Read the full article: Adobe Photoshop: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU performance

Summary: In the past, there were arguments for using either an AMD or Intel processor for Photoshop, but with the new Ryzen 5000-series CPUs, AMD takes such a large lead that it will be very difficult to justify using Intel over AMD. Because Photoshop doesn't scale well with more cores, the higher-end Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X might not be the best value for Photoshop since they are no faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, but all three of these CPUs beat the Intel Core i9 10900K by a solid 10%. For those on a tighter budget, Ryzen 5 5600X outperforms the similarly-priced Intel Core i5 10600K by an even larger 22%.

Adobe Lightroom Classic

Read the full article: Adobe Lightroom Classic: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Summary: In the past, there were arguments for using an Intel processor for Lightroom Classic if you wanted to optimize for active tasks like scrolling through images, but with the new Ryzen 5000-series CPUs, AMD takes a solid lead no matter the task. We saw some odd performance issues with the Ryzen 9 5950X, but the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X beat the Intel Core i9 10900K by a solid 14% and 21% respectively, while the Ryzen 5 5600X outperforms the similarly-priced Intel Core i5 10600K by a bit smaller 11%.

Adobe After Effects

Read the full article: Adobe After Effects: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Summary: Before AMD launched the Ryzen 5000-series, either an Intel 10th Gen CPU or an AMD Ryzen 3000-series CPU would end up giving you very similar performance in After Effects. With the new Ryzen 5000-series CPUs, however, AMD takes a solid lead over Intel. Compared to the Intel Core i5 10600K, the new Ryzen 5 5600X is a solid 16% faster. And at the higher end, the Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and Ryzen 9 5950X range from 9% to 18% faster than the Intel Core i9 10900K.

Adobe Premiere Pro

Read the full article: Adobe Premiere Pro: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Summary: With Premiere Pro now supporting GPU-accelerated encoding/decoding of H.264/HEVC media, Intel is no longer an auto-pick for Premiere Pro, allowing AMD to show what they are capable of on a level playing field. At many points of the stack, the AMD Ryzen 5000-series CPUs do extremely well, solidly beating similarly-priced Intel CPUs by 12-20%.

The exception is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, which still manages to pull ahead of the Intel Core i9 10900K, but only by 1% - effectively tying those two CPUs in terms of overall performance. This actually puts Intel in a very slight lead at this price point since being able to use Quick Sync rather than your GPU for H.264/HEVC encoding and decoding frees up the video card to be used for other things like processing GPU effects, debayering R3D media, etc.

DaVinci Resolve Studio

Read the full articles: DaVinci Resolve Studio: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Summary: AMD has been a strong choice for DaVinci Resolve Studio ever since the launch of the 3rd generation Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs due to their higher core counts and inclusion of PCI-E gen 4. Interestingly, the new AMD Ryzen 5000-series processors are not much faster than the previous generation. But, it is enough for AMD to extend their lead over Intel.

At the bottom end, the Ryzen 5 5600X beats the Core i5 10600K by 14%, and the Ryzen 7 5800X sneaks by the Core i9 10900K by 5%. Further up the stack, AMD does even better with the Ryzen 5 5900X and 5950X beating the Core i9 10900X and 10940X by 29% and 22% respectively. This means that depending on your budget, an AMD Ryzen 5000-series CPU can be anywhere from 5% to a staggering 29% faster than a similarly priced Intel processor.

Unreal Engine

Read the full article: Unreal Engine: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Summary: AMD's previous-gen Ryzen CPUs already provided a compelling option for Unreal Engine. The newly release Ryzen 5000 series CPUs have made it difficult to recommend anything else. They offer a 10-20% improvement over the previous generations and outperform any Intel CPU at similar price points or core counts.

AMD's Threadripper is still the top choice in Unreal Engine, taking the top three spots in every test. However, if you are looking for a lower-priced system or something in a smaller form factor, AMD's new Ryzen 5000 series is the way to go.

Unreal Engine AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance

Cinema 4D

Read the full article: Cinema 4D: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Rendering Performance

Summary: The fantastic single-threaded performance of these new Ryzen processors will make them excellent for working with modeling, animation, and physics in Cinema 4D - while also offering solid rendering speeds for their price point.

For pure rendering workloads, however, AMD's Threadripper line is faster yet (and more expensive). Nothing in Intel's Core or Core X series can compete here. It is worth noting that Cinema 4D also supports other rendering engines via plug-ins, and you can potentially get more performance with GPU-based rendering by combining multiple video cards.

V-Ray CPU Rendering

Read the full article: V-Ray Next: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Rendering Performance

Summary: For the price, these new Ryzen processors offer great rendering performance - while also providing the best single-threaded speeds for modeling, animation, and other related tasks. Each model in the 5000 Series family is 10-20% faster in V-Ray Next than the corresponding model from the 3000 Series.

However, AMD's Threadripper processors are still the kings of single-socket rendering. It is also worth considering whether a GPU rendering engine or a hybrid that uses both the CPU and GPUs, could fit in your workflow. Those can scale much higher in performance within a single workstation.

V-Ray Next AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance


Read the full article: RealityCapture 1.1: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance

Summary: AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X is the fastest CPU we have tested yet in RealityCapture, and the 5900X and 5800X are both close behind. These processors offer fantastic per-core processing speeds, along with an ideal number of cores for this application.

The only limitation I can see to this platform is the maximum of 128GB with regards to memory support. That is not likely to be an issue in RealityCapture, but if it is a problem for anyone then I would advise moving to AMD's Threadripper processors as the next closest option in terms of performance.

RealityCapture 1.1 AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance

Agisoft Metashape

Read the full article: Agisoft Metashape 1.6.4: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance

Summary: AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X is now our top-performing processor for working with maps in Metashape. The Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X are slightly faster for dealing with complex models, rather than maps, and the only competing CPU we have tested that is in the same ballpark as these is Intel's Core i9 10900K.

Any of those four processors would be an excellent choice for photogrammetry in Metashape, but they do all share a single weakness: 128GB of maximum memory capacity. When working with extremely large image sets there could be times that additional RAM is needed, but a trade-off on pure performance would be required to get there.

Metashape 1.6.4 AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance


Read the full article: Pix4D 4.5.6: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance

Summary: AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X is undeniably the fastest CPU for Pix4D - and the 5900X is a strong contender as well. Even the lower Ryzen 7 and 5 models offer better performance for the price than their older models or Intel's Core series equivalents. Most of these new CPUs are ~15% faster than the previous generation in Pix4D, while the Ryzen 5 5600X is "only" 10% faster than the 3600XT.

The only reason to go for a different model would be to access higher amounts of RAM (more than the 128GB limit of the Ryzen 5000 Series) for working with larger image sets, in which case AMD's Threadripper processors are not much slower and support up to 256GB.

Pix4D 4.5.6 AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance

How well does the AMD Ryzen 5000 Series perform overall?

Across the board, AMD's new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs do extremely well - in most cases easily out-pacing similarly priced processors from Intel. The exact amount depends on the specific application, but the Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X in particular do very well, beating the Intel X-series CPUs by as much as 40%!

AMD Ryzen 5000 series average performance for content creation

In content creation applications like the Adobe suite, DaVinci Resolve, and Unreal Engine, the lower-end Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X beat the similarly-priced Intel Core i5 10600K and Core i9 10900K by around 10%. However, this performance is overshadowed by the Ryzen 8 5900X and 5950X which were both nearly 40% (or more) faster than the Intel Core i9 10900X and 10940X. To be fair to Intel, many of the applications in this category (especially lightly threaded ones like Photoshop and After Effects) are actually faster with the Intel Core i9 10900K than the more expensive Intel X-series processors. So, if you were to compare AMD and Intel-based not just on the price of the CPU, but also limiting it to the best performing CPU within that budget, AMD's lead would actually cap out at closer to 20%.

AMD Ryzen 5000 series average performance for CPU Rendering

For CPU rendering applications like CineBench and V-Ray, the results are fairly interesting and not actually a straight win for AMD across the board. The Ryzen 7 5800X in particular only matches the Intel Core i9 10900K - likely because the 10900K has 10 CPU cores versus the 8 on the 5800X. Now, the Core i9 10900K is a bit more expensive than the 5800X ($488 vs $449), but that $40 difference is a smaller gap than the $75 difference between the Core i7 10700K and the 5800X ($374 vs $449).

Further up the stack, however, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X take a commanding lead over Intel, performing up to 40% faster than a similarly-priced CPU from Intel. It is worth noting that if you are looking for the best rendering performance, the AMD Threadripper CPUs are even faster than the new Ryzen 5000 series and well worth the cost if they are within your budget.

AMD Ryzen 5000 series average performance for photogrammetry

In photogrammetry applications, the AMD Ryzen 5000 series is terrific, with either the Ryzen 7 5800X or Ryzen 9 5950X being the fastest CPU we tested depending on how well threaded the particular photogrammetry application is. The performance gains over Intel are not quite as pronounced as they are in the other categories we tested, but AMD maintains a strong 27% lead over Intel with the Ryzen 9 5950X. For the other processor models, the gain over Intel is less than 10%, but the Ryzen 5 5600X and 5900X still maintain enough of a performance advantage to make them a clear choice over the Intel CPUs that are currently available.

Overall, these new AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors are a great improvement over the previous generation, and in most cases place AMD in a solid lead over Intel. The Ryzen 7 5800X is the only model that faltered in some applications, and in some cases was actually a hair slower than the similarly-priced Intel Core i9 10900K.

The Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X, however, are particularly good versus the Intel X-series CPUs that are in the same budget range. Performance gains of nearly 40% are not uncommon, although that is somewhat artificially inflated since the lower priced Intel Core 10th Gen CPUs can actually be faster than the X-series in many applications.

Now put Zen 3 on the threadripper plattform and goodbye Intel workstation. The 16 core with only 2 channel already rips Intel a new one here

Kinda dampens the appeal of risc too.

Great reviews as always!
Will you guys review these new CPUs on Solidworks too? Single core performance will likely benefit Ryzen quite a bit there.

Daris Fox

Wendell over at Level 1 Tech does a lot of the specialist benches if you want to look at those in the meantime, but realistically the real focus on this gen is single thread performance as AMD all but beat Intel when it came to multi-threaded workloads. The only real issue is RAM speed as Zen is RAM speed sensitive and this gen is no exception, 3800 and 4000 are recommended clock speeds, the latter is more tricky to pull off from what I've seen so far. Actual bandwidth could be a limiting factor for Threadripper but we'll have to wait and see but Tr and Epyc are going to be something special when they come out.

What's also going be interesting is the 'new' Smart RAM (PCI BAR) that you get when using Radeon 6000 series GPU's and how programs will take advantage of that feature.

Posted on 2020-11-06 15:46:24

SOLIDWORKS should be coming in the next couple of weeks. Like Daris was saying, the modeling in SW is pretty single threaded, so looking at the CineBench single core results should be relatively accurate for relative performance between these CPUs: https://www.pugetsystems.co... and multi core results for rendering: https://www.pugetsystems.co... . Won't be perfect, but should be relatively close. Simulations is the hard part since there isn't really a comparable application in terms of hardware usage. For that, actual benchmarks are the only way to know for sure, but I can't image the new Ryzen 5000-series not out-pacing any similarly-priced Intel CPU.

Posted on 2020-11-06 17:25:45

I'm planning to do SW testing (probably still with version 2020, as I don't want to test on 2021 till its has a couple of service packs) but will need to do so with Quadro cards, and we had GeForce RTX 3080s in the systems for this big set of testing we did over the past couple of weeks. I would expect the SW testing to be done sometime later this month, and I probably won't update our recommended systems for that software until I can complete it - but I strongly suspect that the new Ryzen chips will be the way to go for general modeling and probably even a lot of simulation workloads.

Posted on 2020-11-06 17:41:33

Thanks guys! PugetBench for 3ds Max 2021 was left out of the tests? If so, it would be great to include it down the road.

Posted on 2020-11-06 12:33:53

3ds Max, SOLIDWORKS, and a few others are still coming. Always limited time before a launch to get things done, so we had to prioritize different tests a bit.

Posted on 2020-11-06 17:22:19

Thank Matt! Do you have any remote idea on the ETA? Mostly interested if 9900K and 10900K still have the lead on 3ds max general use. Differences between Extrude, MeshSmooth, Tessellation, load and save scenes seem quite steep between Intel and AMD 3000 series. Any reason why? Is it due to cpu optimizations lacking on AMD part?

Ace of Spades

Guys, should I move to 5950x from 3960x? Im afraid that Zen 3 based TR will be even more expensive then what I paid for, and for the price of one cpu I can buy a whole 5950x system with new mobo.
I mainly browse the web and game, also encode videos and thats it, but its more of a hobby for me and I needed PCIe slots, 4 of them.
Now i see Godlike x570 has 4 slots too, I need GPU + Optane + capture card + 10G
Also I need 3 M.2, 2 for M.2 drives and one for M.2 to U.2 adapter

Posted on 2020-11-06 19:42:46

That is a lot of PCI-E lanes you need. Something like 40 lanes total if I'm adding it up right. Ryzen 5000 only has 20 lanes I believe, so you are going to run into some issues even if you are OK running the GPU at x8. You might be able to get it to work on a X570 platform, but you might start running into bandwidth issues.

Posted on 2020-11-06 19:46:39
Ace of Spades

do you know if shared PCIe lanes can run at both Gen 4.0 and Gen 3.0 at same time?
Gen 4.0 GPU at x8 + shared slot is a Gen 3 card, will they each run at their generations or the GPU will down gen to Gen 3.0, Because of the shared bus, how does it work?

From MSI manual, MSI Godlike x570 has three x4 M.2 slots and only one shared with 2 sata connectors
As far as PCIe, I have 3090 GPU if it runs in x8 Gen 4, im ok with that, its as fast as x16 Gen 3.0
And the board has this config x8/x4/x4+x4 , 10G Ethernet, Optane and capture card are all x4 so in theory im all set

Posted on 2020-11-06 19:53:24

Why Optane with Ryzen? Maybe just ditch it and go with a gen 4 pcie SSD.

Posted on 2020-11-25 21:41:58
Ace of Spades

Thats not Optane accelerator, thats real Optane SSD, 480GB it works with any system, irrelevant if its Intel or AMD, will be used as OS drive

I also have two Corsair MP510 2TB NVMe drives.

Posted on 2020-11-28 21:23:53
Ace of Spades

Question to Pros, do you know if shared PCIe Gen 4.0 downshifts to Gen 3.0 if I install Gen 3.0 devices in shared slots?
For example, we have 3 shared slots from CPU: x8/x4/x4 + x4 Chipset
If I installed Gen 4.0 3090 GPU in the first slot and populate rest of the shared slots with Gen 3.0 devices like Optane, Capture card and 10G etehrnet
Will my GPU "down-gen" to PCIe Gen 3.0 due to this?

Posted on 2020-11-06 19:45:10

A little off topic, but playing into the fact that I need to upgrade my computer that is used for 2D drafting using Autocad. I'm seriously considering the Ryzen 5600X which seems to be good bang for the buck. Considering that I don't do any 3D work, I wonder if using my old current AMD FirePro V4900 video card would be terribly detrimental or not. Naturally, choosing the best of the best is nice, but not always fiscally possible. Am I shooting myself in the foot using a brand new CPU with an old GPU?

Posted on 2020-11-06 22:22:26

That is a pretty old card (~7 years, I think?) so I'd be pretty hesitant... but then again, it doesn't hurt to try. If you feel like it is sluggish or anything, then just upgrade the video card to something more modern when you have a chance. I did just take a look at Autodesk's certified video card list, though, and the V4900 isn't on their current list for any recent AutoCAD release (2018-2021).

Where are you guys seeing a 10900k for $488?

Posted on 2020-11-08 13:16:00

We always use MSRP when talking about price - it is way too volatile otherwise with whatever sales or scalping might be going on. You could also drop in the 10850K instead since it performs within a percent or two. We actually flip back and forth depending on supply (and customer approval of course).

Very helpful. Very informative as always. Will be interesting to see what you think of the new AMD GPUs. With GPU-leveraging decoding coming to Premiere Pro soon (a beta is out), the GPU will now play a more important role in PP than before. The latest gen Nvidia GPUs bench really well but good luck finding an RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 in stock.

Posted on 2020-11-10 14:49:51

GPU decoding is already in the release version of Premiere Pro as of a few weeks ago (version 14.5). From what I understand, it works better on NVIDIA GPUs than it does on AMD, so that combined with how far behind AMD is right now for processing GPU effects, debayering R3D media, etc., AMD has a big hill to climb with their new Radeon cards in these kinds of workflows. Hopefully they can at least give NVIDIA a scare, but from what I've seen, they are focusing pretty heavily on gaming and not apps like this.

As for RTX 3000 series supply, it definitely is still tight. We are managing to fulfill all our customer order so far (albeit with a bit longer build time then normal), but hopefully the new AMD cards will spread out some of the demand.

Do i may ask what do you guys think about i7 10700 vs AMD Ryzen 5 5600X for purpose of *only* creators ( Pr, Ae ). Although in $USD the prize of Intel is higher but in my country i7 10700 is about $25USD cheaper compare to AMD. Although i get a answer of seeing a lot of benchmarks that is AMD is the way to go but i want to ask what do you guys think? Also i am thinking using an ASrock B550M Pro4 or perhaps B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ( i can wait for 2021 to get the Bios updated in B450 ) for AMD or B460M Mortar for Intel. What do you guys think?

Posted on 2020-11-11 16:46:54

Well, the 10700K is 10% slower in Ae, but 4% faster in Pr. The 10700 (non-K) is going to be a bit slower, so probably something like 12% slower in Ae and almost identical to the 5600X in Pr. $25 really isn't that much compared to the total cost of the system, and I think that is well worth the 12% higher performance in After Effects, not to mention Ps, LrC, Resolve, etc.

Hi, Matt,
Thanks for the Ryzen 5950x test on my supplied H.264 media. Is it safe to assume the Threadripper 3960X should perform at the very least the same or even better? The issue for me is that the Ryzen boards have limited PCI-Express slots, and some of them only have 1 lane (The tiny connectors), and I need to have 4 PCI-Express slots which support 4 lanes at the very minimum, becaue I have a Decklink card, a Decklink DUO card, GPU of course and a RAID controller - all these four boards require at least 4 lannes. I know that the Threadipper motherboards have 4 slots. Thoughts?

Posted on 2020-11-14 21:27:34

The 3960X is probably about the same for live playback. The 5950X does have a bit better single-threaded performance, however, so misc. tasks like launching apps, booting Windows, etc. should be a bit better with the 5950X. Overall, you would probably be hard pressed to notice much of a difference without a direct comparison.

Posted on 2020-11-16 17:47:46

Can't wait for the Radeon 6-series benchmarks when they become available.
I wonder if AMD's Smart Access Memory will do any difference in workstation workloads.

Posted on 2020-11-13 11:58:55

1. Since AMD ryzen 5000 series had no GPU integrated, maybe it will comparable via price and performance by F/KF Intel chip version
2. Would like to see the floating point performance between them, especially where special SIMD AVX2/AVX512 kicks in with optimized BLAS/LAPACK Math Kernel Library that used in stress calculation any FEM Software (SOLIDWORKS-Stress calculation/SAP2000/Autodesk Robot/Ansys/Abaqus/Nastran).

Posted on 2020-11-14 11:43:10

I am confused how to read the benchmark ratings. I have an i7 5820k, a 2080ti, and 64 gigs 2400 DDR4 ram. My score was 511. So clearly it's my CPU and RAM correct? So if I go with a 5950x or a 5900x or even a 3900x(its on sale for 400 dollars), and upgrade to 128 gigs of Corsair Vengeance 3600 Ram, that would probably bring my score close to 1,000 I would assume? I know the 2080ti is not as good as the 3080 but for editing it's about the same no? ... So my question is, would that double my performance in Premiere and After Effects? As in in my exports in half, as well as double the speed of my playback, dramatically cutting down on stuttering and hang ups during playback? Or does the scoring not exactly scale like that?

i9-7900K 10 core with gtx 1060 struggles with single layer H.265 422 10bit 4K60P from Canon R5, after upgrading to 5950X on 64gb ram and still the same graphic card (1060) it can playback 3 layer of H.265 4K60p smoothly in Premiere

Capture One Pro is one we would like to benchmark, but it has basically 0 API support for the things we would need to automate testing. That isn't insurmountable by any means, but it makes it much more difficult to test than Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. It is on our (long) to-do list to reach out to the devs to see what they can do about adding more API functionality, but I'm not sure when we will be able to dedicate the resources to doing that.

Does anyone know how the 5950x stacks up against Xeon or Threadripper CPUs in workloads like matlab?

Hey just so you know you wrote 6c15t instead of 6c12t for the 5600X :P
