Ryzen 9 7900X is a third faster than its predecessor according to Geekbench

Performance data of the 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 7900X processor has appeared in the Geekbench 5 synthetic test database. It remained the only chip in the new Ryzen 7000 processor line for which no independent performance test results were published in this benchmark. Previous leaks confirmed the performance of the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X, the eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X, and the flagship 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X.

The base frequency of the Ryzen 9 7900X is 4.7 GHz. It can automatically overclock to 5.6 GHz on one of the eight cores. The chip has a claimed 170W TDP, 76MB cache (64MB L3 and 12MB L2), and supports 24 virtual threads.

The processor was tested on a Gigabyte X670E Aorus Master motherboard equipped with 32GB of DDR5 memory. The chip scored 2167 points in the single-core test and 18,622 points in the multi-core test. The novelty on the Zen 4 architecture was 30% faster in single-threading and 33% faster in multi-threading tests than its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 5900X.

AMD’s new chip is also faster compared to the Core i9-12900K. The still current 16-core Intel flagship achieves 1901 and 17272 points in the same tests. Compared to the Core i7-13700K and Core i9-13900 engineering samples, the Ryzen 9 7900X is faster in single-threaded performance but worse in multi-threaded performance.
