Ashes of the Signularity or AotS is an RTS video game that nobody generally plays apart from its in-game benchmark which is rather sad. Now the benchmark in question has become quite unanimous in regards to leaks of upcoming processors or graphics cards, though most of the time it’s just baseless shit stirred from rather dishonorable sources.
All things considered it’s rather easy to construct your own fake result page and shit out your very own leaks and claim you’ve “spoted” something without any results page to validate anything. Hell, I’ve stirred the pot by constructing a fake AotS score of a dual RX 580 system back in 2017 just to be absolutely Grabbler’d by the Paki owned wccftech. (that article can be found here)
Now then onto the main attraction, twitter user APISAK has discovered actual verified entries into the AotS database of multiple entries depicting a Ryzen 7 5800X that were ran earlier today.
They’re certainly real alright, more so than 99% of over shit regarding AotS anyway. However the real concerning matter here is the fact that rather than following the usual route AMD has taken with its desktop lineup comparative to its APUs and mobile CPUs it would appear that AMD intends to finally get the whole Zen 3 family under one particular series by skipping the 4000 naming scheme for their highly anticipated Zen 3 processors.
It might look confusing from the very start but it’s a necessary action that would otherwise have to be taken considering AMD dug themselves into this whole debacle by naming their APUs and mobile processors what would otherwise be considered the generation ABOVE of which they are based due to the disparity of the actual release of those processored compared to their desktop counterparts.
Now if you follow the link here, you’ll be able to see multiple different results featuring the Ryzen 7 5800X on the Crazy preset at 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions featuring an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 as the dGPU.
The results aren’t exactly informative however we’re able to see the GPU and CPU framerates from each individual result. Specifics such as frequency is simply not reported however we’re able to see that the 5800X is an 8 core 16 thread SKU which would speculate that the Zen 3 launch will be rather similar to that of Zen 2 that of which we’ll see the 16 core SKU release a little bit later with the maximum of 12 cores being availed once revealed on the 8th of October.
One thing is certain however and that is the performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X where in comparative results between it and the 10 core Intel Core i9 10900K which is almost certainly no slouch when it comes to single-threaded performance however the Ryzen processor simply demolishes it in rather convincing fashion showcasing truly marvelous improvements to the Zen architecture that Zen 3 brings to the table.
If you look at this comparison between the Ryzen 7 5800X and an Intel Core i9 10900K you’ll find the Ryzen absolutely demolishing the Intel processor in outright CPU frametimes on average of 16% across all batches at a preset of Crazy at 4K resolution.
Now it’s unknown exactly what clockspeeds the 10900K is actually running at however simply smacking that ten core CPU around like it’s nobody’s business is truly a remarkable feat.
Also comparing some Crazy 1080p results with the Intel Core i9 10900K we see a much similar story where the Ryzen 7 5800X takes charge with a 13% higher CPU framerate showcasing just how fast that eight core can be.
The CPU scores from the Ryzen 5800X are literally crazy, it would appear that AMD have pulled another revolution with their Zen design and certainly hopes to put the stigma against them from 720p “enthusiasts” regarding intra-core latency and memory latency.
The numbers don’t lie, and they spell trouble for the Intel Corporation. Who have taken dramatic hits to their overall desktop processor sales which isn’t helped by AMD dominating the DIY market with their Zen 2 processors. With a rough CPU framerate gain of 14.5% over the 10900K it certainly shows just how serious of an improvement the Zen 3 architecture actually is.
Intel seriously have a mountainous climb ahead of them if they wish to maintain any hope of relevance with the ever increasing threat of an AMD that grows stronger by the day.
