The AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6-core “Raphael” CPUs are showing all their advantages in performance tests against the current flagship of the Alder Lake Core i9-12900K processors, being 22% faster than its flagship. Check out all the details below.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6-core Is Up To 22% Faster Than i9-12900K
New information about the upcoming AMD processor family emerged recently. This time, the leaked model was the Ryzen 5 7600X, which proved to be significantly superior to the Intel Core i9-12900K.
According to reports, an engineering sample of the Ryzen 5 7600X is showing its full might in a performance comparison against Intel’s i9-12900K. The engineering sample, codenamed 100-000000593-20_Y , has been spotted on Userbenchmark, being a 6-core, 12-thread piece with Zen 4 architecture.
The Ryzen 5 7600X CPU was tested with the ASRock N7-B65XT motherboard, which might be a variant of an ASRock B650E motherboard.
The Userbenchmark entry shows this Ryzen 5 7600X processor with a base clock of 4.4 GHz and a boost clock of 4.95 GHz. These values would be above those seen in the Ryzen 5 5600X, which has a base clock of 700 MHz lower than the Ryzen 5 7600X. The processor was combined with a DDR5-4800 memory.
When compared to the Intel Core i9-12900K processor, the Ryzen 5 7600X is 22% faster on a single core. The multicore results have the 12900K as the clear winner, something logical with its 12 cores and 24 threads. When comparing this processor to the Ryzen 5 5600X, the single thread advantage is 56%.
Everything seems to suggest that AMD has managed to exponentially improve single-thread performance, which was historically one of the weakest points of the Zen architecture, always compared to the Intel Core series.
Let’s remember that AMD has decided not to increase the number of cores with the Ryzen 7000 series, so all the attention will be focused on achieving increased single-threaded performance (IPC). We will keep you informed about the latest news on the upcoming Zen 4 CPUs.
