AMD Zen5 Is Over 40% Faster Than Zen4 On Single-Core, Leaker Claims

We’re getting closer to AMD Zen5’s debut slated for later this year, and it looks like the upcoming architecture is going to be very exciting – or very concerning if you’re Team Blue. Hardware leaker Kepler_L2 has claimed that Zen5’s SPEC benchmark tests has shown over 40% uplift in single-core performance over today’s Zen4 architecture.

To give you an idea how huge that improvement is, the last time AMD made such a huge jump – Ryzen was only a newborn back then. When AMD launch the original Ryzen in early 2017, the original Zen core targeted 40% IPC (instructions per clock) improvement, but ultimately it achieved a whopping 52% improvement over the infamous Bulldozer-based Excavator architecture.

If the figure is true, this will be a huge deal for PC gamers. The current status quo is that Intel slightly edges out AMD’s best chips when it comes to gaming, due to the former’s superior clock speeds (as IPCs on both chips are roughly equal). AMD’s X3D-based processors is arugbly the best CPU for gaming, but it isn’t necessarily the fastest chip on the market outright due to its design and the way some games work.

Keep in mind that SPEC may not necessarily represent all kinds of workload – since different workloads may use different parts of the CPU (such as AVX-512), which all counts to a single general percentage of improvement that can be skewed in many ways. In any case, we may see more leaks in the coming months as the launch approaches, so take a reasonable amount of salt for now, and keep your expectations in check.
