AMD’s Ryzen 3000 family of Zen 2 processors are roughly a week away from launch, and enthusiasts are chomping at the bit to see if performance lives up to expectations. Luckily, leaked benchmarks for the family have been promising and the latest shows some significant gains in one area where Intel has traditionally held the upper hand: single-threaded performance.  AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 is supposed to be a midrange processor, but its single-core performance is already flagship worthy. Although early Ryzen 3000 benchmarks that we’ve seen have centered around Geekbench, this new result is from a Passmark CPUMark single-thread test. In this particular test, the processor...

All indications so far is that AMD has brought the boom with its third generation Ryzen processor family launch, and that its Zen 2 CPU architecture based on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process is the real deal. The caveat is that most of the indications have come from AMD directly—at Computex, the company showcased a Ryzen 9 3900X outperforming an Intel Core i9-9920X. Whether it plays out that way once silicon gets in the hands of reviewers and embargoes are lifted remains to be seen. In the meantime, some encouraging benchmarks have leaked online.
