AMD’s new flagship might be faster than Intel’s in terms of multi-core performance.
Multiple Cinebench R23 benchmark scores for the Ryzen 9 7950X have leaked, and one of the ones spotted by @OneRaichu, which was achieved on a system leveraging an AIO cooling solution, has indicated that the new 16C/32T CPU can reach a multi-core score of 37,452. This is faster than what the Core i9-13900K is seemingly capable of, based on previous leaks that suggested the Raptor Lake chip could deliver a multi-core score of 35,700.
A single-core score wasn’t presented in the aforementioned test, but here’s a roundup of the numbers shared by VideoCardz, including an earlier run done with an air cooler that shows the Ryzen 9 7950X hitting 2,205 in Cinebench R2’s single-core test.
OneRaichu posted a third score, featuring an engineering sample of the same CPU. In this case, the processor scores 37452 points in multi-core test and reportedly reaches 5.1 GHz all-core boost frequency while reaching 96°C with 360 mm AIO cooling kit.
As noted in AMD’s press release, Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors are expected to be available globally beginning September 27, starting at an SEP of $299 USD for the Ryzen 5 7600X.
The Ryzen 9 7950X will cost $699, which is $100 cheaper than what the Ryzen 9 5950X debuted at in November 2020.
A tweet shared by @9550pro yesterday suggests that the NDA will be lifted on September 20.
