[UPDATED] AMD Ryzen 7600X and 7700X Preliminary Benchmarks Out, Single Core Performance On Par With Intel’s Best Offerings

(This article has been updated with the leaked Multi-Core score for the 7600X and the 7700X)

Yesterday, we got our hands on the Cinebench R20 Score for the R5 7600X which absolutely demolished Intel’s best offerings. Today, Greymon on Twitter gave us expected numbers for Cinebench R23. Both versions vary a bit in terms of performance and the newer (R23) has been used to benchmark most if not all Raptor Lake CPUs.

High Expectations

Allegedly, the R5 7600X scores 19001999 points whereas the R7 7700X pushes this above 2000 points in single core testing. That puts the R5 7600X on par with Intel’s i7-12700K and the R7 7700X against Intel’s i9-12900K. That’s an insane improvement over last gen.

As for the relative performance charts, the R7 7700X pulls ahead of the i9-12900K by 3%. Do note, we used the average values for the 7600X and 7700 (1950 and 2050 points respectively). The R9 7950X was also leaked a while back at nanoleaks, which is actually slower in single-core than its R5 and R7 counterparts. Is AMD sandbagging? The multi-threaded (For the R9 7950X) score lands around ~38,000 points which is up to expectations. So who’s at fault here?

Multi-Core Score Shackled By Core Count

In an update to the initial Cinebench R23 single core expectations, Greymon now added the possible multi-core score. The R5 7600X scores around 15100 points whereas the R7 counterpart bumps this score up to 19800 points. 

This is decent, however, still slower than expected when compared against the single core offerings by AMD this generation. For reference, we compiled a few relative performance charts against the top dogs from Raptor Lake and Alder Lake.

The R5 7600X is 50% faster than the R5 5600X in multi core score (11200 vs 15100). Using the same 50% performance improvement (Multi-core) metric, we can roughly approximate the R9 7950X’s (vs the R9 5950X) score which amounts up to 36500 points.

Why Not CPU-Z

CPU-Z unfortunately doesn’t benchmark the CPU completely due to some BIOS related issues. Zen4 has been pushed back by 2 weeks due to this issue. However, the release date still remains within the next month (27-28th September).

A Worthy Opponent

The i9-13900K crushes everything put in its way, whether it be single core or multi core based. Can AMD hold up to its IPC gain promises? If we put things logically, the efficient cores are granted to give Intel a massive lead in multi-core and thus Chipzilla may possibly usurp AMD’s throne.

However, the current single-core leaks for AMD are in line with their promises. As far as scores are concerned, we do not have the scores for the R9 7800X/R9 7950X.

If we consider the Raphael (Zen4) to be 30% faster in single-core tasks as compared to Zen3 (Based on the R5 5600X  vs R5 7600X), then the R9 7950X’s score comes around to be 2150+ points (As the R9 5950X scores 1650 points).
