Running various Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browser benchmarks now easily put AMD well ahead of Intel thanks to Zen 3. The generational lift for the Ryzen 5 5600X was 14.6% for the web browser benchmarks or 35% compared to the Ryzen 5 2600X.

With threaded Chess benchmarks like Crafty, TSCP, Stockfish, and Asmfish, the Ryzen 5 3600X to Ryzen 5 5600X represents a 28% uplift or 31% faster than the Core i5 10600K.

For those looking at speeding up their code compilation process, AMD Zen CPUs continue to perform very well. The code compilation tests were building Apache, PHP, the Linux kernel, ImageMagick, GDB, LLVM, FFmpeg, and MPlayer. From the Ryzen 5 3600X to Ryzen 5 5600X is a 13% uplift and 18% faster than the Core i5 10600K.

With compress tests of 7-Zip, Zstd, and Blosc is a 28% generational improvement and compared to the speed of the Intel Comet Lake processors.

If looking broadly at "creator" workloads the Ryzen 5 5600X is 19% faster than the 3600X and 10600K. Among the creator tests are POV-Ray, Yafaray, Blender, Applseed, Radiance, LuxCore, V-RAY, OCRMyPDF, the encoding tests, GraphicsMagick, GMIC, LibRAW, WebP, RawTherapee, GIMP, GEGL, Open Image Denoise, OpenVKL, OpenVINO, ASTCENC, DeepSpeech, eSpeak, and others.
