AMD Ryzen 7 7700X, 8 cores up to 5425 MHz
It looks like somebody has been busy testing AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7 CPU.
Over at CPU-Z validation website, there was a submission from one of the reviewers featuring AMD’s upcoming 8-core CPU known as Ryzen 7 7700X. The entry has already been removed, but the screenshots were still captured by always-active hardware leakers.
According to the listing, all eight cores have been running at the same frequency of 5425 MHz, which is 25 MHz higher than the official turbo clock for this Zen4 processor. This is the newest CPU based on Raphael silicon for AMD’s new AM5 socket.
The CPU has increased TDP to 105W (compared to predecessor’s 65W), supports AVX512IF instruction and features new 5 nm Zen4 microarchitecture. It will also support DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5 interface.
The CPU has been tested on Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master motherboard equipped with DDR5-6400 CL30 memory. With such a configuration, the 7700X scores 774 points in single-thread and 8381 points in multi-thread CPU-Z tests.
With such a score, the CPU is 21% faster than Ryzen 7 5800X (8-core Zen3) and 20% faster than Ryzen 9 5950X (16-core Zen3) in single-core test. It is also 1% faster than Core i5-12600K (10-core Alder Lake), but it is outperformed by Core i7-12700K (12-core).
In terms of multi-threaded performance, the 7700X scores 1% higher than Core i9-12900K (16-core) and 8% higher than i7-12700K. This new Raphael CPU is also 28% faster than its predecessor (5800X).
There is also this new entry to Geekbench database with the same CPU but different motherboard (ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Hero) and memory configuration (64GB of DDR5-6000):
Here, the CPU scores 2209 and 14459 points in single and multi-core Geekbench V5 tests respectively. In this case, 7700X ends up faster than Core i7-12700K by 16% in single-core and 2% in multi-core tests.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700X is officially set to launch on September 27th alongside three other Ryzen 7000 CPUs. According to the reports, AMD will lift the review embargo Ryzen 7000 as well as X670 motherboards a day sooner (September 26th).
