New benchmark scores for the Ryzen 9 7900X have been spotted on Geekbench, alluding to a 12-core desktop processor from AMD that can hit single-core scores and multi-core scores of up to 2,167 and 18,622, respectively. Those scores would make the Ryzen 9 7900X faster than the 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K in both departments, according to comparisons shared by Wccftech, although Intel’s incoming Raptor Lake flagship, the Core i9-13900K, seems poised to take the crown.

From a Wccftech report:

The CPU was the only chip that wasn’t leaked so far in the Geekbench 5 benchmarks. As for the test setup, it comprised a Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master motherboard with 32 GB of DDR5 memory.

As for performance, the CPU scored 2167 points in single-core and 18446 points in multi-core tests. We can use the Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5900X for comparison here. The chip outperforms both in single and multi-threaded results, especially its predecessor against which Zen 4 is up to 33% faster in multi-threaded and 30% faster in single-threaded results.

AMD’s Ryzen 9 7900X is a 12C/24T processor with a boost/base frequency of 5.6/4.7 GHz and a TDP of 170 watts. The CPU should be available to purchase for $549 beginning Tuesday, September 27, alongside the Ryzen 97950X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X.
