AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme tested in Geekbench

AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X was recently tested on the ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme motherboard with a 32GB DDR5-6000 memory. Geekbench shares that the CPU was able to hit a maximum boost of 5759MHz, which is even higher than the boost clock advertised at 5.7GHz.

Like most current-generation Ryzen 9 5950X CPUs, this CPU also features 16 cores and 32 threads; a configuration common to the AM4 desktop series. Even though the Core i9-12900K CPU is based on a hybrid architecture, it also has the same number of cores, but compared to the Core i9-13900K, it has fewer cores.

The monster we are talking about managed to score 2217 points on the single-core test and 24396 points on the multi-core test. This is slightly lower than the figure of 2275 officially shared by AMD yesterday.

Now is the perfect time to make comparisons, as a majority of Intel’s 13h Gen Core has already been tested. However, some SKUs are still missing. From Geekbench’s V5, we know that Intel’s Raptor Lake i9-13900K, with a configuration of 24 cores and 32 threads, is 4.4% faster compared to the Ryzen 9 7950X. AMD’s latest flagship CPU, on the other hand, is 31 to 47.8% faster than the 5950X and 14.5 to /41.2% faster than the i9-12900K.

It can be concluded that in Geekbench, both flagship CPUs are close in the single-thread test. The Raptor Lake has an advantage in multi-thread because of twice the efficient cores.
