The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X appears in CPU-Z behind the Core i9-13900K

More and more leaks with the launch just around the corner, now being able to see a performance test of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X in benchmarking software CPU-Z.

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is the company’s top-of-the-range processor, made up of 16 cores and 32 processing threads under the architecture Zen 4 to a manufacturing process 5nm. These cores will be able to reach a Base/Turbo frequency of 3.40/4.90GHzand its performance has already been tested and benchmarked against the competition’s top-of-the-range processor, the Intel Core i9-13900Kwhich although it has only 8 high performance coresis accompanied by 16 low power cores energy that change the rules of the game.

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X lags behind the Core i9-13900K in multi-core performance

You already know the outcome, now you only need the numbers. The Ryzen 9 7950X achieved a multi-core performance of 15,645 pointswhich implies a performance improvement of 32.12% compared to its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 5950X. Regarding Intel, it implies being 33.5% faster than the Core i9-12900K (8+8 cores), 23.47% faster than a more modern Core i7-13700K (8+8 cores), but fails to beat the Core i9-13900K (8+16 cores), and it is that Intel processor is 8% faster in this benchmark.

This information should not surprise anyone, and it is expected that all Intel CPUs are superior to their counterparts at AMD in terms of multicore performance for reasons more than obvious (more cores). In single core performance, these CPUs have also been dominated by Intel, although this is all in benchmarks, having to wait for benchmarks. in games to see if Raptor Lake will really dominate the market without problems, or if they will be relegated to professional use, content creators and benchmarks.

As indicated by the leaker @OneRaichuthe final performance tests could be slightly higherbut of course, in the case of Intel the same will also happen, so the differences could remain very similar.

The price of the motherboards will be vital for the success in sales of the AMD Ryzen 7000


If the AMD Ryzen 7000 are less powerful at a price similar to their counterparts, the only advantage will be at the level of energy consumption, something that matters little at the moment of truth if you are looking for higher performance and pay less. Energy consumption is not a big claim, and if we add to this the use of a DDR5 RAM more expensive, now the triangle closes with motherboards. If these have high prices, AMD could reverse the situation in the market, in the sense that it offers lower performance, lower number of cores and a more expensive platform than its rival. Let’s go, the same that Intel offered before the arrival of the AMD Ryzen.

Fortunately, not everything is so bad, and you have to remember that cooling systems for AM4 processors will be supported with AM5 processors. Although it will be necessary to see if everything will work perfectly, or there will be some other problem as we could see in the Alder Lake.
