AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Power Benchmarks

Historically, processor manufacturers consistently delivered increases in clock rates and instruction-level parallelism, so that single-threaded code executed faster on newer processors with no modification. More recently, in order to manage CPU power dissipation, processor makers favor multi-core chip designs, thus software needs to be written in a multi-threaded or multi-process manner to take full advantage of such hardware. Many multi-threaded development paradigms introduce overhead, and will not see a linear increase in speed when compared to the number of processors. This is particularly true while accessing shared or dependent resources, due to lock contention. This effect becomes more noticeable as the number of processors increases. Processor can be damaged from overheating, but vendors protect processors with operational safeguards such as throttling and automatic shutdown. When a core exceeds the set throttle temperature, processors can reduce power to maintain a safe temperature level and if the processor is unable to maintain a safe operating temperature through throttling actions, it will automatically shut down to prevent permanent damage.

The Ryzen 9 5950X sits between Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 3900X. It is 2.3% lower than the Ryzen 9 5900X while being 8% higher than the Ryzen 9 3900X. The Ryzen 9 5950X takes a comfortable 29% lead over the Core i9-10900K. In this benchmark, the Ryzen 9 5950X has an impressive performance, which is way ahead of the last generation Ryzen 9 3950X by 10.2%. Again, the Ryzen 9 3950X tumbles down the chart, falling behind its Zen 3-based successor. That's a ~10.2% generational speed-up in this title. The Ryzen 9 3950X clearly shows how significantly the enthusiast Matisse-based CPUs fall behind the Zen 3 models. The Ryzen 9 5950X's performance earns it the 34th place. AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X notches a small win over the Ryzen 9 3950X, but opens up an impressive lead over the stock Core i9-10900K. Overall, the Ryzen 9 5950X is a low performer with its 16-cores and 32-threads in this benchmark.
