First is the Ryzen 9 5900X, a 12/24 core/thread chip. All we have to go on is a single graphic showing CPU-Z comparing a CPU with the same C/T count (but no official title) against the Ryzen 7 3700X. Take a look below.

A first glance may make you think Intel wins out, but look closer. The CPU framerate averages nearly 20FPS higher in 4K performance. Both bench’s use the same rig with an RTX 2080, and the 5800X wins in every count. Keep in mind this isn’t the 5900X or 5950X.
We’ll of course get full confirmation of what CPUs AMD will offer in just a week. Still these initial leaked benchmarks give us plenty of hope for 4K gaming and beyond. Now we’ll just have to see how pricey these new CPUs are.
