AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X is 20% faster than its predecessor in leaked Cinebench test

This is enough to best Alder Lake, but is it enough for Raptor Lake?

AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X is delivering impressive performance levels in Cinebench R20

Thanks to the Chinese hardware reviewer Extreme Player, we have gotten a look at AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 7700X processor in Cinebench R20. These results represent significant performance gains over AMD's older Ryzen 5000 series processors, which is great news for AMD and their Zen 4 architecture.

With a single-threaded score of 773 and a multi-threaded score of 7701, AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X 8-core Zen 4 processor appears to be 25% faster than a Ryzen 7 5800X in terms of single-threaded performance and around 26% faster in multi-threaded performance. These are impressive gains for AMD's Zen 4 processor, especially if these gains can be applied to other workloads. 

When compared to Intel, AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X appears to deliver single-threaded performance levels that are similar to an overclocked i9-12900K processor, achieving the same performance as our original i9-12900K review sample (see here). With higher-end Ryzen 7000 series processors being expected to feature higher clock speeds than AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X, we can expect AMD's highest-end Ryzen 7000 series processors to beat Intel's Alder Lake series CPUs to best Intel's i9-12900K in Cinebench's single-threaded test. That said, Intel has 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors on the horizon.

If the scores above are to be believed, AMD should be able to deliver strong performance gains with their Ryzen 7000 series processors. That said, it is unknown how well these performance gains will translate into other workloads. 

AMD plans to reveal their Ryzen 7000 series processors on August 29th, which means that hardware enthusiasts will not have to wait long to see what AMD has in store for us with Zen 4.

Had a quick look and apparently it can boost to 5.4ghz on a single core. So if it can indeed maintain that clock speed on the single thread test it doesn't sound amazing. I mean, if that is true then the score is simply in line with clock speed gain. And given that it will most certainly be overclocking itself (because AMD leave no head room in there) that makes it seem a little underwhelming. IDK, time will tell I suppose.

As for the highest end reaching higher clock speeds? yeah I can see that, but not on a single core IMO. If the higher end ones can clock at higher than 5.4ghz on a single core I would be pretty surprised.

Funny though because I said a while back that AMD really needed to start pushing their frequencies. If they don't and Intel manage a shrink again within a decade they'll be in trouble Quote

Hmm. Just did a little digging and it appears the stock 12700k can do 757 single thread. And it is not running at 5.4ghz. 8750 points on the whole CPU.

TBH unless this is an engineering sample with derped clocks that is really underwhelming for a supposed next gen part with 8 cores and 16 threads.

It also concerns me more because given it's the 7700x (with the part name suggesting that it is the replacement for the 5700x which wasn't anywhere near to being cheap).

Dunno man. On the fence this time around. It's also a bit suspicious that they have pushed it forward to beat Raptorlake's launch.Quote

the 12700k is 8+4 or 20 threads ... so nothing too bad.

the price of the 12700k is also 100+ euro higher than the 5800x where i live (444 euro vs. 294 euro).

rumors say the 13700k will cost 480$... the 7700x is rumored to be 350$.

that said i too expect the 7700x to do better.
but on the other side, when AMD can keep power consumption under control that would be a plus.


i would also not be suprised if this is pure BS.
the guy has achived his goal as this is retweeted, reposted all over the internet and amd and intel fanboys fight over it.


the leakers throw numbers on the wall and hope some will be right in the end.

i begin to hate that game...Quote

I would hazard a guess and say this will at least cost as much as the 12700k, though. That is what I was getting at. I know the 12700 has more under the hood, but that's not a bad thing surely?

I think I often forget what the 12700k costs now tbh. I paid about £350, I forget it has gone up in price after the reviews went live LOL.Quote

i heard that intel will raise prices for raptor lake but AMD will keep price for the 7700x the same.

Quote:
According to DigiTimes (via Kok-Hua Chia), it appears that AMD has no plans to raise the prices of its “mainstream” CPU and GPU products, namely its Ryzen 7000 and Radeon RX 7000 series.

the 12700k has more under the hood but also cost more.
it costs more than the 5900x here in germany (5900x = 394 euro, CB20 multicore 8500 points).


IF the rumored price is correct the 13700k will cost more than the 7700x.

i don´t compare CPU per core count, i compare them by the money i have to pay and performance.

but yes from some rumors you would expect ZEN4 to do MUCH better than raptor lake.
but i think the rumor sources i trust always said at best 35% better than ZEN3.
and i think 25-26% in cinebench20 is in line with that. maybe early sillicon, non final mainboards.

in the end it comes down to price.Quote
