AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X has recently been tested on the ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme motherboard with a 32GB DDR5-6000 memory. Geekbench shares that the CPU was able to reach a maximum boost of 5759 MHz, which is even higher than the boost clock advertised at 5.7 GHz.
Like most of the Ryzen 9 5950X CPUs from the current generation, this CPU also features 16 cores and 32 threads; a configuration which is common to the AM4 desktop series. Even though the Core i9-12900K CPU is based on a hybrid architecture, it also features the same core count but as compared to the Core i9-13900K, it has fewer cores.
The sample we are talking about has managed to score 2217 points on the single-core test and 24396 points on the multi-core test. This is slightly below the figure of 2275 which was officially shared by AMD yesterday.
This is the perfect time to start making comparisons since a majority of Intel’s 13h Gen Core has already been tested. Some of the SKUs are still missing though. From Geekbench’s V5 we know that Intel’s Raptor Lake i9-13900K, with a configuration of 24 cores and 32 threads, is 4.4% faster as compared to the Ryzen 9 7950X. AMD’s latest flagship CPU, on the other hand, is 31 to 47.8% faster than the 5950X and 14.5 to /41.2% faster than the i9-12900K.
It can be concluded that in Geekbench, both the flagship CPUs are close in the single-thread test. The Raptor Lake has an advantage in multi-thread because of twice the Efficient cores.
