According to reports, CPU-Z benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 7 7700X have been recently leaked, with results that don’t look too promising. It might be possible that these are engineering samples, so one can only hope that they are made with clock frequencies far removed from the final ones. Check out the complete details below.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X & Ryzen 7 7700X CPU Benchmarks Leaked
According to the leaker harukaze5719, some benchmark results about the upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 7950X & Ryzen 7 7700X Zen 4 CPU have been outed, even though he censors the exact single-core result. The leaker has indicated it and the difference with the Ryzen 9 5950X is clearly seen, with an improvement.
If we consider taking the 780 points indicated as a reference, this is how it compares with other processors, current and future:
- i9-13900K (Assumed result): 897
- i7-13700K (Assumed result): 878
- i5-13600K (Assumed result): 831
- i9-12900K: 819
- i7-12700K: 790
- Ryzen 9 7950X and 7700X (Engineering Sample): 750-780
- i5-12600K: 766
- Ryzen 9 5950X: 647
- Ryzen 7 5800X: 645

Bearing in mind that this is about 15%, which is precisely what AMD has announced for its Zen 4 architecture. If confirmed, Intel would keep the best single-core performance. In addition, while part of the cores is slower (because of the big.LITTLE architecture), it is expected that they will take the lead in multi-core performance in that case as well.
This might be bitter news for AMD and its Ryzen 7000 series CPU, but as mentioned earlier we are dealing with engineering samples, which will surely have lower clock frequencies than the real processor.
In any case, it is something that would transfer to AMD the need to beat Intel on price, something that is increasingly difficult given the prospect that motherboards could be quite expensive, especially the X670. Where the victory of AMD has been clear for a long time is in energy efficiency, which would also lead us to spend less on cooling and the power supply, but it remains to be seen whether it will compensate or not.
It is worth mentioning that the official announcement of the AMD Ryzen 7000 series processor is just around the corner. It will be on August 29th when we will really start to see what AMD has prepared, and from there we will need to see the reviews.
Do you think that the AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs will be behind Intel? Are they going to be an interesting purchase or will they be overshadowed by the price of the motherboards and RAM?
