Clash of the titans on geekbench
We return to the load, and that is because Geekbench the first performance test of a AMD Ryzen 9 7950Xso it is inevitable to make the pertinent performance comparisons with the Intel Core i9-13900Ksince this processor had been seen days ago in the same benchmark, allowing us to have the first complete performance comparison in a benchmark.
In this way, we have a duel of the titans. On one hand we have the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X with 16 cores and 32 threads processing at a Base/Turbo frequency of 4.50/5.70 GHz accompanied by a motherboard ASUS ROG Crosshair X670 Extreme along with 32 GB of DDR5 RAM memory 6,000MHz. On the other side of the ring we have a Intel Core i9-13900K with 24 cores and 32 threads (8x P-Core + 16x E-Core) at Base/Turbo frequency of 3.00/5.8 GHz accompanied by a previous generation motherboard, the ASRock Z690 Taichiand not knowing the type of memory used, something to keep in mind since it ends up influencing performance.
The Intel Core i9-13900K holds its own against the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, at least on Geekbench
These specs translate to single-core performance of 2,217 points for the AMD CPU vs. 2,314 points of the Intel CPU, so Raptor Lake is 4.4% faster in a single core.
In multicore performance the story does not vary much, as the AMD CPU reaches 24,396 points in front of the 26,464 points of the Intel CPU, which increases the performance margin by 8.4%. For reference, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X reaches the 16,508 pointsso its successor is up to 47.8% faster on multicore.
The AMD Ryzen 5 7600X was also seen by Geekbench, the price to pay for 6 cores
Additionally, a processor was also seen AMD Ryzen 5 7600Xthe most basic model of the Ryzen 7000 series. This one brings a rather criticized configuration, since it is limited to offering 6 cores and 12 threads of processing at a Base/Turbo frequency of 4.70/5.40 GHz. The analyzed CPU was accompanied by a top-of-the-range motherboard such as the MSI MEG ACE X670E along with 32 GB of DDR5 memory at an unknown speed.
In this case we speak of a single core performance of 2,174 pointsand now comes the controversial, AMD announced a score around the 2,175 pointssomething that is true, but he made fun of Intel indicating that his Core i9-12900K moved in the 2,040 points. Well, the Core i5-13600K has been seen previously with 2,012 pointsbut of course, now the comparison that AMD will never offer: multicore performance.
AMD’s processor reached 11,369 pointswhich is a much lower performance than the Intel Core i5-13600K can give, a cheaper processor than the Core i9-12900K, and which has been seen to reach 16,054 points. That is, the new generation Core i5 is 41% faster multicore performance than the new generation Ryzen 5. Not to mention that it practically performs the same as the Ryzen 9 5950X, so Intel could do the same comparison: “our Core i5 beats the Ryzen 9“Each brand has its tricks, of course.
