If this leak is true … then this is one powerful desktop processor, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one for sure!
Taken from TPU … A Cinebench R23 picture of AMD’s recently announce Ryzen 9 7950X CPU having been put through its paces have appeared online via a post on Baidu, which has been taken down since the picture was posted. However, courtesy of @harukaze5719 it lives on, on Twitter and gives us a first glimpse into the Cinebench R23 performance of the upcoming CPU. The CPU is said to have been air cooled, so it’s possible that we’ll see even higher benchmark numbers with better cooling, so take these numbers with a pinch of sodium chloride, just to be on the safe side. The test system was also using Windows 10, so there’s the potential of some extra performance by changing to Windows 11 here as well.
In the single score test, the Ryzen 9 7950X scores 2,205 points, which is in line with Cinebench R23 leaks for Intel’s upcoming Core i9-13900K CPU, if a smidgen slower. The multi-core score is obviously not going to compete with Intel’s Core i9-13900K due to the overall lower core count, but at 29,649, but it’s ahead of the Core i9-12900K by a decent margin. It’ll be interesting to see how AMD positions the 7000-series of CPUs, as although it seems like the company has done a good job in improving the overall performance compared to the 5000-series, it’s not quite enough to take the performance crown this time around, if these early benchmark leaks from both sides are anything to go by.
Update 10:27 UTC: A new picture hjas appeared where the CPU has been kitted out with better cooling at the multi-core score has jumped from 29,649 to 36,256, which makes it competitive with the Core i9-13900K scores that have leaked in the past.
