Well, it looks like we have a new 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU benchmark to feast our eyes on today and the chip shows powerful multi-threaded performance in Cinebench R23.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU On Par With Intel’s Core i9-13900K In Leaked Cinebench R23 Benchmark, Removes 5950X And 12900K
To update: A much better AIDA64 cache and memory benchmark has been performed running DDR5-6000 CL30 memory. filtered out. The CPU offers a latency of 64.5 ns while producing a memory bandwidth of up to 98 156 MB/s (read).
The latest benchmark was posted on Chippell Forums and shows the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X running in its original configuration on a liquid-cooled X670E motherboard. No settings or configurations used for testing other than the watercooling note were mentioned, but the CPU is performing much better and close to what a stock Intel Core i9-13900K will offer.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X 16-Core “Zen 4” Desktop CPU
Starting with the flagship of them all, we have the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X which retains its healthy 16-core, 32-thread count from the previous two generations. The CPU will feature an impressive 4.5GHz base frequency and up to 5.7GHz boost clock (5.85GHz F-Max), which should make it 200MHz faster than the Alder Lake Core i9-12900KS from Intel, which has a boost frequency of 5.5 GHz on a single core.
It seems that AMD is extracting every ounce of Hertz that it could within that 170W TDP (230W PPT) for the Ryzen 9 chips. Cache-wise, the CPU comes with 80MB of which includes 64MB of L3 (32 MB per CCD) and 16 MB of L2 (1 MB per core). The flagship will cost $699, which means it will be priced a bit higher than the Intel Core i9-12900K CPU and will offer a significant jump in performance for single and multi-threaded applications.
AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ Desktop CPU Specifications (Official):
|CPU name||Architecture||process node||Cores / Threads||basic clock||Boost Clock (SC Max)||Cache||TDP||Prices (to be determined)|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X||Zen 4||5nm||16/32||4.5GHz||5.7GHz||80MB (64+16)||170W||$699 US|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X||Zen 4||5nm||12/24||4.7GHz||5.6GHz||76MB (64+12)||170W||$549 US|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7700X||Zen 4||5nm||8/16||4.5GHz||5.4GHz||40MB (32+8)||105W||$399 US|
|AMD Ryzen 5 7600X||Zen 4||5nm||6/12||4.7GHz||5.3GHz||38MB (32+6)||105W||$299 US|
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X scored an impressive 38984 points in multi-core tests. Now comparing it to Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 7950X stands out with 61% better multi-threading boost. It also beats the Core i9-12900K with an impressive 42% performance improvement. Finally, the chip loses out to the Intel Core i9-13900K with 3% slower performance, but that’s about on par with what the 13th-gen flagship produces. The Intel Core i9-13900K consumes a lot more power at a nominal 350W with the unlimited power setting and that gives Zen 4 a huge power efficiency advantage over its rival.
Around the same power cap, the Intel Core i9-13900K (250W power-limited setting) should offer 35-37,000 points, which is slightly lower than the Ryzen 9 7950X; however, to make matters worse for Intel, it appears that the final retail chips may score over 40,000 points as reported by Greymon55.
240 water cooling: 38300+
Wait until BIOS, voltage and more perfect, I think 40000+ should be relatively easy.

These are really strong numbers against the Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 family and we can’t wait to see the AMD Ryzen 7000. Tokens will hit the trade on September 27 so users can enjoy huge improvements in single and multi-core workloads. The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 5 7600X also appeared in leaked Geekbench 5 benchmarks yesterday..
