For compression tests o 7-Zip, Zstd, and Blosc, the Ryzen 9 5900 series dominated...

When breaking down the results to look at the rather broad "creator" area of C-Ray, Tachyon, POV-Ray, Yafaray, Blender, Tungsten, Appleseed, Radiance, LuxCore, Smallpy, TTSIOD, V-RAY, Tesseract OCR, OCRMyPDF, SVT-VP9, x264, x265, Kvazaar, vpxenc dav1d, AOM-AV1, SVT-AV1, AVIFENC, MP3 encode, FLAC encode, Graphics_magick, Inkscape, GMIC, LibRAW, WebP encode, RawTherapee, libjpeg-turbo, GIMP, Montage, GEGL, Embree, oneDNN, OIDN, OpenVKL, OpenVINO, Neatbench, Basis, ASTC encoding, eSpeak-NG, DeepSpeech, and RNNoise, there was more dominance by the Zen 3 CPUs. The Ryzen 9 5950X for these "creator" workloads was 14% faster than the Ryzen 9 3950X while the Ryzen 9 5900X was 18% faster than the 3900X and 16% faster than the Core i9 10900K.

With cryptography tests of OpenSSL, John The Ripper, Botan, and Aircrack-NG, the Zen 3 performance continued impressing and the Ryzen 9 5900X was performing still in front of the Ryzen 9 3950X. The Ryzen 9 5900X was 14% faster than the Core i9 10900K.

Across MP3, FLAC, SVT-VP9, x264, x265, Kvazaar, VP9 vpxenc, dav1d, AOM-AV1, SVT-AV1, and AVIFENC audio/video encode tests were more impressive results...

For those dealing with Fortran code, the performance with Cloverleaf, Dolfyn, NEAT, Polyhedron, FFTE, Mocassin, and LAMMPS yielded much uplift going from Zen 2 to Zen 3.
