New benchmarks of a retail AMD Ryzen 7 7700X 8-Core CPU have leaked within Geekbench 5 and CPU-z. The benchmarks show that AMD's upcoming chip will be battling it out with Intel's Core i7-12700K when it comes to single and multi-threaded performance.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700X 8-Core & Intel Core i7-12700K 12-Core $399 CPUs Battle It Out In Leaked Benchmarks
The latest benchmarks were published within the Geekbench 5 and CPU-z benchmark tests. Both of these benchmarks show a huge disparity in single and multi-core performance for the Ryzen 7 7700X CPU since the IPC uplift in CPU-z is rated at just +1% while the IPC uplift in Geekbench is at +14%. So we are getting a look at both, the worst-case and best-case scenarios of AMD's 8-Core Zen 4 performance in these benchmarks.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700X 8 Core "Zen 4" Desktop CPU
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X is an 8-core and 16-thread part. AMD positions this as the sweet spot for gamers and as such, the CPU will feature a base clock of 4.5 GHz and a boost clock of 5.4 GHz but at a lower 105W TDP (142W PPT). The CPU will get a 40 MB cache pool which consists of 32 MB L3 from the singular CCD &8 MB L2 from the Zen 4 cores.

|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X||Zen 4||5nm||12/24||4.7 GHz||5.6 GHz||76 MB (64+12)||170W||$549 US|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7700X||Zen 4||5nm||8/16||4.5 GHz||5.4 GHz||40 MB (32+8)||105W||$399 US|
|AMD Ryzen 5 7600X||Zen 4||5nm||6/12||4.7 GHz||5.3 GHz||38 MB (32+6)||105W||$299 US|
Starting off with CPU-z, the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X was running on the Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master motherboard and this is the retail variant. The CPU was running at 5.42 GHz all-core boost clocks & had an operating voltage of 1.152V with temperatures hovering around 71C. We don't know if this was under load or what type of cooling was used. The maximum multiplier reported for the chip is 55.5x which leads to a 5.5 GHz peak frequency limit.
In single-core, the CPU scored 774 points and in multi-core, the chip scored 8381 points. Compared to its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800X, the new chip is 20% faster in single-thread and 27% faster in multi-threaded results. The chip also comes close to the Intel Core i7-12700K in single-core with a 3 percent difference but loses out in multi-threaded tests with a -15% performance deficit.
Next up, we have the Geekbench 5 benchmarks where the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X 8-Core CPU can be seen blazing ahead with an impressive 2209 points in single-core & 14459 points in the multi-core tests. Here, the CPU is 32% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, 19% faster than the Core i7-12700K, and also, 10% faster than the Core i7-13700K in single-threaded performance. In multi-core tests, the chip offers 40% better performance than the Ryzen 7 5800X and 3% better performance than the Core i7-12700K but loses to the Core i7-13700K by 27%.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X and the rest of the family will be launching alongside the next-gen AM5 platform and X670E motherboards on the 27th of September so stay tuned for more info as we are only a few days away from the grand launch.
