The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X, which as the name suggests, would come equipped with 12 cores and 24 threads. The CPU comes with an even higher base clock of 4.7 GHz and a boost clock adjusted at 5.6 GHz across a single core. The CPU retains its 170W TDP and gets 76 MB of cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L2). The CPU will be positioned in the same ballpark as the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X but with a CPU performance that would shake the ground from below the Core i7-12700K.

The CPU was the only chip that wasn't leaked so far in the Geekbench 5 benchmarks. As for the test setup, it comprised a Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master motherboard with 32 GB of DDR5 memory.

As for performance, the CPU scored 2234 points in single-core and 20225 points in multi-core tests. We can use the Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5900X for comparison here. The chip outperforms both in single and multi-threaded results, especially its predecessor against which Zen 4 is up to 45% faster in multi-threaded and 35% faster in single-threaded results.

The Intel Core i7-13700K and the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X are almost on par in multi-threading but Zen 4 leads in single-threaded tasks. It should be pointed out that the Ryzen 9 7900X is going to hit retail at $549 US which is a slightly higher price. The Core i7-12700K retailed at $409 US so if we add the +20% or so price bump that is expected on Raptor Lake CPUs, the price is still under $500 US, and with the F variant, it can even be closer to $400 US. So the pricing advantage will go to Intel's 13th Gen Raptor Lake lineup and you can also get either DDR4 or DDR5 on the blue team side.

AMD will have more advantages in the power efficiency department and also longevity of its AM5 platform which they have showcased with AM4. The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs & AM5 platform will be launching on the 27th of September.
