AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor Review


7-Zip, CPU-Z, 3DMark & Cinebench

7-Zip 18.01 – link

7-Zip is a file archiver with a high compression ratio. 7-Zip is free software with open source.

CPU-Z 1.84 – link

CPU-Z is a freeware that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system. CPU-Z also has a built-in benchmark that has become pretty popular since this application is widely used. The benchmark computes a 2-dimensional noise function, that could typically be used in a game to generate a procedural map. The code is written in C++, and compiled with Visual C++ 2008. No special instruction set is used, but the x64 version uses scalar SSE/SSE2 instructions to achieve floating point operations, whereas the 32-bit version keeps using the legacy x87 instructions, resulting in almost half of the x64 performance.

Futuremark 3DMark 2.4.4264 – link

3DMark is a popular gaming performance benchmark that includes everything you need to benchmark your PC whether you’re gaming on a desktop PC, laptop, notebook, or a tablet. 3DMark includes seven benchmark tests and we’ll be running ‘Sky Diver’ that is aimed at gaming laptops and mid-range PCs.

Fire Strike Benchmarks Results Summary: When it comes to 3DMark Fire Strike we found the overall score on the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X was higher than what we got on the Ryzen 5 2600X, but things were flipped with regards to the GPU score. We’ve noticed some wild score swings between runs on 3DMark Fire Strike on the combined test and are looking into it.

Maxon Cinebench R15.038 – link

CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software Cinema 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Iron Man 3, Oblivion, Life of Pi or Prometheus and many more.

Cinebench Benchmarks Results Summary: The flagship Ryzen 7 2700X 8-core, 16-thread CPU has a Cinebench score 1813 points on the multi-CPU test and 179 on the single-cpu test whereas the more affordable Ryzen 5 2600X 6-core, 12-thread processor came in at 1374 points and 172 points, respectively. Single-core performance is up nicely over the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X and we were shocked to see the multi-core performance being just 4% behind the Intel Core i7-8700K processor.
