According to the new Geekbench 5 score, @BenchLeaks on Twitter, The Ryzen 9 7900X has a 30% lead over its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 5900X., In Geekbench 5 Multi-core and single-core testing. All-new 7900X might just make it onto the best CPU tier list once it arrives at the lab.
The Ryzen 9 7900X scored 2,167 points in the single-threaded test, but scored 18,446 points in the multi-threaded test.according to the official Geekbench browser stats page, The Ryzen 9 5900X scored 1,669 points in the single-core test and 13,946 points in the multi-core test.
This gives the Ryzen 9 7900X a 30% lead in single-threaded performance and a 32% lead in multi-threaded performance. These are very similar stats to what AMD has predicted for his Ryzen 7000 over his Ryzen 5000, which includes generational gains of 29% in single-threaded speeds and 45% in multi-threaded tasks. increase.
We don’t see a 45% increase here, but that’s to be expected. Geekbench 5 alone is not enough to determine CPU performance, as CPU performance varies greatly depending on workflow. At least, I see the same 30% improvement in my Geekbench single-threaded tests.
Most of Geekbench 5’s gain can be directly attributed to the 13% IPC gain from the Zen 4 architecture and the 800MHz jump in boost frequency from 4.8GHz to 5.6GHz. But another speed boost from the Ryzen 7000 is the addition of AVX-512, which Geekbench 5 uses in its AES-XTS encryption benchmark.
This also means that the Ryzen 9 7900X’s performance upgrade comes down to better performance per core as both the 7900X and 5900X share the same 12 core count.
Overall, Geekbench 5 cannot be used solely as a benchmark to determine CPU performance. However, we do get a clue of the Ryzen 9 7900X’s performance outside of AMD’s official numbers. We can expect the average performance increase to be around 30%, but we expect performance to vary significantly in niche scenarios that can take advantage of Zen 4’s new architectural properties.
