All 3 of these Ryzen 5 cpus are 6 core 12 thread chips, but the newer the CPU, the higher the base as well as boost clock rates. The 3600 and also 5600X have the very same quantities of L2 and also L3 cache, but the more recent 7600X has double the L2 cache, as well as we’ll see exactly how this affects games as well as applications quickly. AMD’s more recent Zen 4 processors are now 5nm and use DDR5 memory, and also they’ve additionally got incorporated graphics currently also, something the older parts didn’t have. I’m using the 5600X instead of the cheaper 5600 since the 5600X came out almost a year and also a half previously, so more people really have it. The 3600 and also 3600X came out at the very same time, however as the performance space was really tiny, lots of people wound up obtaining the more affordable 3600, so that’s why we’re using it. At the time of recording in October 2022, the 7600X is available on Newegg at the MSRP launch rate of $300 USD, but the older 5600X is $200 or much less now, and also the older 3600 can be selected up for less than $150, however you can inspect current prices and sales with the web links in the summary. So with a $100 greater cost tag contrasted to last gen, it begs the concern, is the 7600X worth paying much more for compared to AMD’s older and also more affordable 6 core CPUs? To discover out, I’ve contrasted all three cpus in this system. I’ve checked with MSI’s Core Liquid S360 AIO as well as
Noctua NT-H2 thermal paste so we can fairly compare thermals, however the motherboard as well as RAM have actually been altered for the 7600X, as this utilizes the brand-new AM5 socket and also calls for DDR5 memory. Just before we enter the games, let’s start with Cinebench R23, as it’s a very easy way to obtain a basic suggestion of where single and multi threaded efficiency go to. I have actually obtained the oldest 3600 down the bottom, 5600X in the center, and 7600X on top with two results. We’ve got the supply result, and the outcome with Eco mode made it possible for, which is set with the Ryzen Master software application. We can clearly see that the new Zen 4 based 7600X is offering a relatively big efficiency boost compared to the last two generations, as well as enabling Eco mode hardly lowered efficiency. When compared to the older 3600, the 7600X was racking up 65% greater in solitary core as well as 59% higher in multi core, and after that when contrasted with the 5600X we’re taking a look at a 27% increase to solitary core and also 36% boost to multi core. Not negative for a solitary generation jump! We can see why the increase is higher
with the 7600X when having a look at the clock rates being reached during this examination. Before the 7600X, our 6 core Ryzen chips were running in between 4.1 and 4.3 GHz in this workload. The 7600X on the other hand was regularly performing at 5.2GHz, and also just slightly behind in Eco setting, however it’s making use of even more power contrasted to the various other 2 processors in order to keep these rates. The 7600X is scoring 36% better in multi core contrasted to the 5600X, however it’s additionally utilizing 46% more power to achieve this. The 7600X is making use of less power in Eco mode however, we’re discussing a 34% lead contrasted to the 5600X in regards to Cinebench multicore performance now, so very little reduced, however right here the 7600x is utilizing 23% more power. It’s still a lot more overall power when contrasted to the last gen 5600X, however from an effectiveness perspective, the 7600X with Eco mode winds up being the most effective result. This is because it’s using less power compared to itself without Eco setting while not losing much performance. Without Eco mode as well as just running the 7600X at default however, the older 5600X was more effective. More power normally equals more warm, as well as the 7600X was most definitely running warmer, however as I make sure you have actually listened to now, AMD have said these brand-new CPUs
have no risk of damages or degeneration going for the 95 level Celcius restriction 24/7. Regardless, Eco setting had the ability to reduce the temperature level by about 15 levels, a good enhancement for such an easy adjustment. So Eco setting on the 7600X was running cooler, more successfully, and also still performing well. So it’s definitely resembling a smart choice to make use of. That claimed, the rest of this testing has actually been performed with Eco setting off, because I intended to run the 7600X at its default and see what it can. But as we have actually seen, I would not actually anticipate the distinctions to be that much lower with Eco mode enabled anyhow. Alright right before we enter into the video games, let’s round off the remainder of the performance workloads. Mixer was evaluated with the Open Information criteria, and also I have actually included all 3 various workloads that it examines. This test relies upon multi core efficiency, and also like Cinebench, there are some good gains with the 7600X, which was scoring 39% greater than the 5600X prior to it in the Classroom test, as well as 55% in advance of the older 3600. The V-Ray standard is one more hefty multi-threaded
rendering workload, and also the 7600X has among its greatest leads over the 5600X right here, scoring 39% higher. The 7600X comes out 65% in advance of the older 3600, so a nice performance improvement, yet don’t ignore the added power needed to pull this off. We’ve obtained eco mode for that. The Corona standard likewise uses the processor to provide out a scene, however reduced times are better currently, as well as the distinctions weren’t as big compared to the previous rendering examinations. Linux kernel collection was tested in Linux with Ubuntu 22.04, whereas the remainder of the tests were all performed with Windows 11. There’s not much difference in between the 5600X and also 3600, which I believe is due to them having the very same amounts of L2 and L3 cache. Cache affects collection efficiency, and also the 7600X with its dual L2 cache is 43% faster than the 5600X before it. LLVM collection is the only various other test I have actually carried out in Linux, as well as again the 5600X as well as 3600 were similar below also, with the 7600X having a clear renovation thanks to its extra cache. Handbrake was utilized to convert my 4K 60FPS evaluation video clip of the Legion 7i pc gaming laptop to 1080p h.
265. Lower times are much better below also, as well as like most of the various other work, the 7600X had a larger lead contrasted to the smaller gap in between the older 5600X and 3600. Adobe Premiere was evaluated with the Puget Solutions benchmark device, and also this
examinations video editing tasks like exporting, playback as well as even more. The 5600X was racking up 10% in advance of the 3600, while the 7600X was scoring 18% better than the 5600X, and 30% better than the 3600. Although the 7600X adds integrated graphics, it does not appear like this software program is yet taking advantage of it, so this gap could enhance in future with updates. DaVinci Willpower is one more video clip editing and enhancing program, and the 7600X was racking up 18% much better compared to the 5600X, one of the tiniest differences in between these 2 cpus, however the 7600X was scoring 69% much better compared to the 3600, nice. Adobe Photoshop does much better with even more single threaded efficiency, and as we saw in Cinebench earlier, the 7600X absolutely has some good gains there. It’s scoring 30% ahead of the 5600X, as well as 61% in advance of the older 3600. The 7600X really did not have that big of a lead compared to the older 5600X in Microsoft Word, but it was a lot even more ahead when it pertained to Microsoft Excel, so I think consider Zen 4 over the others if you’ve obtained some legendary spreadsheets. 7-Zip was made use of to check compression as well as decompression. Ryzen normally does better compared to Intel in these tests, and I really can not wait to contrast AMD’s 7000 collection versus Intel’s 13th gen, so see to it you’re subscribed for that! The 7600X was 59% faster than the 3600 in regards to compression and also 43% faster for decompression, however when compared to the 5600X decompression was simply 19% faster with the
7600X, and 29% faster for decompression. Geekbench evaluates a lot of various workloads, a few of which gain from AVX512 directions, which is something that the 7600X has equipment support for and assists explain the above ordinary gains. The 7600X is racking up 54% greater compared to the 3600 in the multicore test, and also 75% higher in the solitary core examination – the most significant difference out of all work checked. Usually out of all applications evaluated, the more recent 7600X is around 54% faster when contrasted to the older 3600, however as we can see there are considerable distinctions in between the various applications. As an example, as stated Geekbench solitary core had the greatest gain on the 7600X, though even more practical workloads like DaVinci Willpower video modifying weren’t far behind. Adobe Premiere on the other hand saw the smallest difference in between these 2 processors, with a 30% lead from the more recent 7600X. If we instead compare the 7600X against the 5600X, after that we’re considering a 29% improvement with the more recent 7600X in these exact same specific application tests. Once again it really relies on the particular workload, Linux bit compilation likely had above average gains as a result of the doubling of L2 cache, while both video modifying apps currently had a few of the smallest gains with Zen 4. Alright currently allow’s contrast some video games! I’ve compared all 3 processors in 11 video
games at 1080p, 1440p and 4k resolutions to see what the differences are. Let’s begin with Wonder’s Spider-Man Remastered. I have actually obtained the 1080p results down the base, 1440p in the center, and 4K up the top, with the older CPUs below the more recent ones within each resolution, much like previously. The distinctions in FPS weren’t that different in between 1080p as well as 1440p resolutions, while 4K saw no difference in between the 5600X and 7600X as we’re entirely GPU bound, and also both had a 13% lead over the older 3600. The 7600X was 53% faster than the 3600 at 1080p, as well as 26% in advance of the 5600X. Microsoft Flight Simulator was checked in the Sydney touchdown challenge, and it was kind of comparable because all 3 CPUs performed similarly at both 1080p and also 1440p resolutions, and after that the 5600X and also 7600X were very close together at 4K. The 3600 was doing about the very same at all 3 resolutions, suggesting a CPU bottleneck. The 7600X was 53% faster than the 3600 below, just like the last video game, and 14% in advance contrasted to the 5600X. I always get demands to evaluate Warhammer 3 for a CPU intensive video game, however all three cpus were limited by our RTX 3090 Ti graphics card at 1440p. I’ll be comparing that against the RTX 4090 quickly, so make certain you’re subscribed for that. At 1080p, the 7600X was 25% in
advance of the 3600, however just 4% ahead contrasted to the 5600X, so you can obtain the majority of the FPS gains with the less expensive 5600X. Halo Infinite also saw no change between all 3 CPUs at 4K as we’re GPU limited there, yet there’s a larger difference below at 1440p this time around. The 7600X was 14% ahead of the 5600X, and 40% ahead of the 3600. The margins get bigger at the reduced 1080p resolution, probably as we’re even more CPU bound, with the 7600X currently 32% ahead of the 5600X, and also 64% faster contrasted to the older 3600. Things begin looking a little odd in Phone call of Duty Warzone. CPU selection doesn’t appear to matter at 1440p as well as 4K resolutions, however at 1080p the 5600X was a little ahead in regards to average FPS. This shows up to just be a little distinction within the margin of mistake array, however I saw comparable distinctions in my 7950X vs 5950X comparison, so maybe some part of this video game simply functions a little much better with last gen Zen 3, or maybe it’s my DDR4 memory. Inevitably it doesn’t really matter, it’s a 5 FPS distinction, and also the dips in performance as measured by the 1% lows were still higher on the 7600X, so a more stable experience, however not by a lot. The differences in Apex Legends were fairly tiny also, despite resolution, so it does not actually matter an entire lot which CPU you pick. There
may be larger spaces at lower settings, however even if you eliminate the frame cap this video game maxes out at 300 FPS, which is why I chose to evaluate with max settings. Somehow the 1% lows were a little far better in Fortnite on the 5600X in all three resolutions, despite the ordinary framework rates being higher with the newer 7600X. Once more like a few of the other video games, if I really did not also see a similar point happen in other CPU comparisons between Zen 2, 3 and also 4 I would certainly assume there’s something incorrect with my screening, however this was a clear trend over several cpus throughout these exact same generations. Once again like a few other games, the spaces between the 5600X as well as 7600X weren’t that large, so if you have actually currently obtained a 3600 just doing a drop-in substitute upgrade to the 5600X without transforming equipment is most likely the relocation, as it obtains you the majority of the method there for much less money. While we’re on the subject of eSports video games, CS: GO was seeing some of the greatest increases with newer CPUs out of all 11 video games evaluated. The 7600X was getting to a 101% higher typical FPS compared to the 3600 at 1080p, that’s right, greater than double the structure price. This video game likewise had the biggest improvements
with newer processors at 4K, as it just doesn’t seem to get GPU minimal. Essentially it simply appreciates CPU power much more contrasted to most various other video games. Cyberpunk 2077 on the various other hand goes the various other way, with no distinction in between all three cpus at 4K, while the differences at 1440p were still really tiny as well. CPU selection just appears to matter at the reduced 1080p resolution in this video game, with the 7600X being 33% faster than the 3600, however just 6% faster compared to the 5600X, so another example of where 3600 owners might be able to simply save money by mosting likely to the 5600X. Once again, it’s simply offering a lot of the gains with a $100 less expensive cpu as well as no needs of upgrading to an AM5 motherboard with DDR5 memory. I have actually evaluated The Riftbreaker making use of the CPU standard choice, and also there was a little bit more of a distinction between the three cpus at 4K now, a minimum of compared to most various other video games tested, given the spaces at 1440p as well as 1080p are bigger for factors we’ve gone over. Last video game prior to we enter the enjoyable comparison graphs. View Dogs Legion was evaluated with the video game’s criteria, as well as like the majority of others, there weren’t many differences at 4K. The 7600X was 20% faster than the 5600X at 1080p, as well as 50% ahead contrasted to the older 3600. Usually over all 11 games evaluated, at 1080p the new 7600X was carrying out 50% far better than the older 3600. As we can see here, the distinctions truly depend upon the particular video game. CS: GO at the top for example is 101% faster, as the 7600X was doubling the 3600’s structure rate, while video games like Pinnacle Legends on the various other hand rarely saw any distinction. If we step up to the greater 1440p resolution the 7600X was now 38%
faster than the 3600 typically in these 11 video games, now 4 games just had little gains with the 7600X. A few of the CPU much heavier titles still had large gains with the 7600X though. This alters a little bit at 4K, with the 7600X now 16% faster than the 3600 on standard. Higher resolutions need more GPU power to run, so the CPU distinction really begins mattering much less outside of titles like CS: GO and the others that still have much more than a 10% gain with the 7600X. If we instead compare the 7600X versus the 5600X, we’re taking a look at a 16% increase to frame rates in the very same 11 game selection at 1080p. The space lowers at the higher 1440p resolution with the 7600X currently 12% in advance of the 5600X, and after that at 4K the space is really tiny, with the 7600X simply 4% faster on average. We’re only still seeing good gains in the eSports titles, and also reasonably most individuals are most likely playing those at reduced resolutions to optimize structure rates anyway. Right here’s what we’re looking at when we take the average frame prices from all 11 video games tested to attempt as well as identify some total trends. This makes it a little bit less complicated to see that usually, the gaps between the 3600 as well as 5600X were bigger contrasted to the voids between the 5600X and 7600X, no matter resolution. Despite the 7600X using the most effective raw video gaming performance, it’s not the ideal worth alternative for gaming due to its higher price. AMD are launching it for $300 USD, so it’s going to be
tough for it to complete versus the 5600X when you can select that up for $100 less, and this is just representing CPU expense, not motherboards or DDR5 memory, though to be fair DDR5 rates have actually come down a fair bit over the in 2014. The rates I have actually obtained for the older CPUs are the lowest at Newegg when I’m making this video in very early October 2022, but again make use of the web links listed below the video to inspect current prices and also sales. It’s not simply pc gaming where the 7600X is worse value either, we see the same thing in Cinebench R23. Of training course no one is out here buying a brand-new CPU to run Cinebench, yet this shows that it’s supplying even worse worth if you require multicore performance for say providing workloads as an example. Don’t get me incorrect, the 7600X is definitely an extremely capable processor, it simply seems a bit too pricey compared to AMD’s older as well as more affordable 6 core 12 thread options. If you want that extra efficiency, after that you have actually reached spend for it. And also let’s not neglect that if you do have an equipment with a 3600, you can take that CPU out as well as do a drop-in substitute to the 5600X without altering any type of
equipment. So if you’ve already got a 3600 arrangement, this would certainly be a more affordable upgrade compared to opting for the 7600X. As this would certainly require a new motherboard and also DDR5 memory. Even if you are getting AM4 today and opting for the 5600X, practically you can still upgrade this right up to the 16 core 5950X, and while that will execute considerably much better in multithreaded workloads, you’re probably not going to see that much of a boost when it comes to gaming. Forever pc gaming as well as single threaded performance increases, you most likely would intend to consider AM5. Once again, if you can afford it! Examine out just how AMD’s brand-new Ryzen 7 7700X contrasts versus their older 8 core options in this video next. Intel’s 13th gen cpus will certainly be right here very quickly as well, so ensure you’re subscribed for my forthcoming contrasts with those. I can’t wait to see exactly how the 7600X contrasts against the 13600K!.
