In a new leak, an engineering sample of a Ryzen 9 7950X scored 39,000 points in Cinebench R23. While other system metrics are unknown, the extra performance compared to the Zen 3 chips is huge and Raptor Lake also seems to have AMD in check based on the information available so far. Read more about this below.
AMD’s new processors should be significantly faster than their predecessors. But according to the source and the rumor, the values differ significantly. While a 40 percent increase in performance in multi-core applications is sometimes reported, the performance increase in gaming varies significantly. Therefore, uniform benchmarks are preferred where a numerical and comparable result is achieved, which can then be ranked. Now another one has been leaked, which is supposed to show an engineering sample of the Ryzen 9 7950X.
AMD Ryzen 7000: Extremely Effective Undervolting Again?
It is said to have reached 38,984 points in Cinebench R23 with a base clock of 4.5 GHz. A Ryzen 9 5950x achieves a comparatively low 26,000 points without manual intervention. A Core i9 12900K also reaches this value. A standard Core i9-13900K, on the other hand, should hit around 35,000 points based on initial information, while it should hit just over 40,000 points without restriction. Unfortunately, little information is known about the actual configuration of the Ryzen 9 7950X, except that the chip was water-cooled.
After a score of between 36,000 and 37,000 points was already achieved with the AIO cooler on Friday, a decent custom water cooling system can be assumed. If all the parameters of the Ryzen 9 7950X are standard, based on the information above, it would be 9.2 percent faster than the Core i9-13900K, which can only pass after all limits have been removed and only minimally.
The launch of AMD’s new Zen 4 chips is expected on September 27, when it will be clear at the latest how fast the new chips actually are. Initially, there should be four CPUs between six and 16 cores that can only be installed with DDR5 memory on the new AM5 platform.
