AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 7 5800X processor review

Benchmarks - Blender 2.79b and PovRay

Blender 2.79b

Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.

In the Blender 2.79b, the BMW model is rendered and timed. The shorter the time to completion, the better the processor.

From the chart, we can see that the ThreadRipper are definitely way faster with more cores. Next on the list is the Ryzen 9 3900X at 2 min 32 sec. The Ryzen 7 5800X took 3 mins 18 secs which is 24 seconds faster than the previous generation Ryzen 7 3800X.

PovRay 3.7

POV-Ray, is a cross-platform ray-tracing program that generates images from a text-based scene description. It comes with a test tool which benchmarks single or multicore processors.

The benchmark unit is in PPS. The higher the PPS, the faster the processor.

As we can see, the ThreadRipper are leading ahead with twice the PPS as it has more cores and threads.

Likewise the Ryzen 9 3900X is slightly faster at 6221.08 (multi) and 282.74 (single). The Ryzen 7 5800X get a score of 5374.23 (multi) and 356.58 (single) vs the Ryzen 7 3800X at 4388.3 (multi) and 290.78 (single).

The performance gain in multicore is 22.46% while single core is 22.6%.
