For the productivity tests of LibreOffice, Octave, Inkscape, GIMP, and GEGL, the new AMD CPUs now pulled ahead of Intel Comet Lake.

Likewise when looking at the Python language performance via PyBench, Numenta, Numpy, Mlpack, and PyPerformance, the 5900X/5950X jumped ahead of the Core i9 10900K former lead.

AMD CPUs with their greater core counts dominate over Intel Comet Lake with renderers like Blender, Appleseed, LuxCore, Smallpt, V-RAY, and others.

Similarly for a broad look at the scientific computing possibilities with NEAT, MT-DGEMM, NAMD, GROMACS, Dolfyn, CloverLeaf, LAMMPS, MrBayes, MAFFT, and others, the Ryzen 9 5900 series see nice uplift as well.

For speech language processing with eSpeak-NG, DeepSpeech, and RNNoise, there is around a 16% generational uplift.

Texture compression with Basis and Arm's astcenc lead to even greater gains for AMD.
