The next ‘Zen 4’ AMD’s Ryzen 7 7700X CPU has seen yet another leak, with prolific processor leaker Extreme Player shifting its usual focus on Intel chips to reveal the 7700X’s performance in the popular Cinebench R20 benchmark software.
The leak, which was posted on the Chinese video hosting site bile (opens in new tab), shows the Ryzen 7 7700X scoring single-core and multi-core scores of 773 and 7,701, respectively. On the surface, these are good results; compared with the excellent Ryzen 7 5800Xwe’re looking at a 25% performance boost, which AMD is certainly proud of.
However, the 7700X isn’t the only chip hitting the market that has seen leaks; Intel i7-13700K – which will be the direct competitor to the 7700X once both are released – it was previously revealed that it scored an impressive 814 and 11,243 in the Cinebench R20’s single- and multi-core tests, which makes it blast its rival Ryzen so far that AMD will need one. towel.
Analysis: This Looks Bad, But It’s Still AMD’s Race to Lose
On paper, the i7-13700K’s incredible performance makes it seem like AMD could be in serious trouble here, but there’s a lot more to consider before ruling out the Ryzen 7000 series like dead weight. The battle to be crowned the best processor won’t be decided by a single benchmark after all.
For starters, price will be a big factor here. AMD has historically positioned itself as the friendliest alternative to Intel, and there’s nothing to indicate that this next generation will see any deviation from that trend.
The 13700K’s powerful multi-core performance is undoubtedly due to Intel’s new performance/efficiency mixed core architecture introduced in 12th generation Core CPUswhile the improved results of a single core are reduced to the 13700K’s new ‘Raptor Cove’ performance cores.
But AMD’s strong gaming focus (with its 3D V-cache technology, first seen in Ryzen 7 5800X3D) means that even if Intel can comfortably beat the Ryzen 7000 in raw processing power, AMD can maintain its edge as the top choice for gamers. Finally, it’s worth remembering that these are leaked numbers, likely using an engineering sample of the 7700X, so performance may be slightly different in the final product.
