Leaked Benchmarks AMD Zen 5 Could Crush Intel 13th Gen with Ryzen 8000

AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 8000 desktop processors built on the Zen 5 architecture are still at least a year away. But newly leaked benchmarks for engineering samples provide an early glimpse of the performance gains coming with Zen 5.

The leaked scores allegedly come from a 12-core Ryzen 8000 chip, likely a desktop variant codenamed “Granite Ridge.” While specs like clocks and power draw remain unknown, the numbers showcase sizable improvements.

In the multicore CineBench R23 test, the 12-core Ryzen 8000 engineering sample manages a score around 36,000, 16-core version hits 49,000 points.

For comparison, AMD’s current 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X tops out below 30,000 in the same benchmark. So Zen 5 brings a major jump in multithreaded grunt.

Single-core performance sees big gains too, with the samples scoring 2500-3000 in CineBench R23. That handily beats the Core i9-13900KS which maxes out around 2200 points despite hitting 6GHz peak clocks.

AMD plans to unveil Zen 5 in 2024 or 2025 for servers, desktops, and laptops. The architecture transitions to advanced 4nm and 3nm manufacturing nodes to enable the performance leap.

Along with the standard Zen 5 cores focused on raw throughput, AMD will debut Zen 5c cores optimized for cache performance rather than high clocks. This contrasts with Intel’s heterogeneous core mixing high-performance and efficient cores.

It’s important to take these leaked engineering sample benchmarks with a grain of salt for now. But the scores provide hard data backing Zen 5’s rumored >35% single-threaded and >60% multi-threaded performance gains over Zen 4.

If AMD manages to hit these targets, Ryzen 8000 and Epyc powered by Zen 5 could reshape the performance landscape when they arrive. Rival Intel is already pressed to match Zen 4 today. Zen 5 threatens to further tilt the scales towards AMD across servers, desktops, and mobile.

While still early, the leaked numbers hint Ryzen 8000 desktop chips like the 16-core variant could become multi-threaded monsters while taking single-core performance to new heights. AMD’s Zen 5 architecture is already shaping up to be a potential milestone.
