AMD Ryzen 5 5600X & Ryzen 9 5900X Review

It’s looking like a magical day for AMD fans and AMD themselves too. The Ryzen 5 5600X set a new high-score in Octane 2.0 of 67191, but it didn’t stay there long, with the Ryzen 9 5900X smashing that later in the day. 

The same happened in Kraken, the 5600X setting our fastest time yet, then the 5900X came along and beat that again! Both of them miles ahead of the next Intel rival.

Amazingly though it was the 5600X beating the 5900X in WebXPRT, however at this point, it’s clear they’re both fantastic CPUs and it was the slightly faster single core of the 5600X that gave it the edge over the larger core count 5900X here.

Online Benchmarks

Results in RED indicate a new #1 record score for that benchmark.
