An engineering sample of one of AMD’s upcoming 6-core Ryzen processors has appeared on BaseMark Power Board.

While there are no names associated with the CPU, this must be a Ryzen 7000 Series processor based on its pairing with a GIGABYTE X670E AORUS MASTER motherboard, which features an all-new socket that is incompatible with previous chips. The CPU also has six cores, an indication that this is probably the Ryzen 5 7600X.

The listing was originally spotted by @TUM_APISAK, but @harukaze5719 has chimed in with comparison benchmarks that provide an idea of how much more powerful the Ryzen 5 7600X might be compared to the current flagship.

AMD’s Ryzen 5 7600X will seemingly be up to 11% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X, a processor with 16 cores and 32 threads. That chip features a maximum boost clock of 4.9 GHz, but the Ryzen 5 7600X is listed with a 4.4 GHz clock.

AMD is expected to announce the Ryzen 5 7600X alongside other Ryzen 7000 Series processors before the end of the year. The Ryzen 5 5600X launched in November 2020 for $299, and it includes a cooler in the form of the Wraith Stealth.
