In workloads where the Ryzen 9 3900 series was leading over the Core i9 10900K already, the margins are just even wider with the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X.

In just a few cases was the Core i9 10900K even performing similar to the 5900 series... One example is with the dav1d AV1 video decoder for 1080p content. But when hitting dav1d with 4K content to yield more work for the processor cores, the Zen 3 parts are back to shining. It was rare seeing blue at the top now as we end 2020.

In nearly all of the 217 benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 5900X/5950X were dominating with significant uplift over the Ryzen 9 3900 series and thrashing Intel's Comet Lake. So let's move on to a breakdown of all the results at a higher level in different areas.
