In response to a brand new Geekbench 5 rating, shared by @BenchLeaks on Twitter, the Ryzen 9 7900X garners a 30% lead over its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 5900X, in Geekbench 5 multi-core and single-core exams. It is sufficient to doubtlessly land the all-new 7900X a spot in our finest CPUs tier listing as soon as it arrives in our labs.
The Ryzen 9 7900X scored 2,167 factors within the single-threaded take a look at, whereas within the multi-threaded take a look at, it scored 18,446. In response to the official Geekbench browser stats web page, the Ryzen 9 5900X scored 1,669 factors within the single-core take a look at and 13,946 factors within the multi-core take a look at.
This successfully offers the Ryzen 9 7900X a 30% lead in single-threaded efficiency and a 32% lead in multi-threaded efficiency over its predecessor. These are very related stats to what AMD projected with Ryzen 7000 over Ryzen 5000, together with a 29% generational achieve in single-threaded velocity and 45% in multi-threaded duties.
We don’t see the 45% features right here, however that’s anticipated. CPU efficiency can change drastically relying on the workflow, so Geekbench 5 alone is not sufficient to evaluate CPU efficiency. On the very least, we see the identical 30% features within the single-threaded take a look at of Geekbench.
Most of Geekbench 5’s features will be attributed on to the 13% IPC achieve coming from the Zen 4 structure and the 800MHz soar in increase frequency from 4.8GHz to five.6GHz. However one other velocity enchancment coming from Ryzen 7000 is the addition of AVX-512, which Geekbench 5 will use in its AES-XTS cryptography benchmark.
This additionally signifies that the Ryzen 9 7900X’s efficiency upgrades are attributed to higher per-core efficiency since each the 7900X and 5900X share the identical 12-core depend.
Total, we can not use Geekbench 5 solely as a benchmark to evaluate CPU efficiency. Nonetheless, it does give us a clue into the Ryzen 9 7900X’s efficiency outdoors of AMD’s official numbers. We will anticipate common efficiency features to be across the 30% ballpark however anticipate efficiency to be far completely different in area of interest eventualities that may make the most of Zen 4’s new architectural properties.
