AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D beats Core i9-13900K in new Geekbench single-core test

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X with 3D V-Cache faster than Core i9-13900K

New benchmarks featuring flagship Ryzen 9 CPU. 

The 3D V-Cache is not expected to show its strength in most synthetic benchmarks such as Geekbench. Only cache-sensitive and gaming workloads will unlock the potential of AMD’s newest CPU series equipped with increased L3 cache.

AMD’s 16-core and 32-thread Ryzen 9 7950X3D is now scheduled to launch next week. This processor will feature just as high clock speeds as the 7950X, but the cache will be 64MB bigger and default TDP will be decreased to just 120W.

Last week, we had a chance to see the 7950X3D CPU in first Geekbench 5 tests. It delivered strong figures, competitive with Intel Core i9 and existing Ryzen 7000 lineup. However, it wasn’t beating any of these processors. As it turns out, there are better scores in the Geekbench database already, putting 7950X3D right on top:

As we can see, the 7950X3D scored 2271 points in the single-core test and 24727 points in multi-core. That’s indeed much better than previous scores. It is worth noting that the 7950X3D will not support overclocking, at least not in a traditional form. There will be no frequency or multiplier modifications allowed, but users will have access to memory overclocking, and Precision Boost Overdrive and undervolting. That said, the new highest score was definitely not achieved with overclocking.

The database already has 6 scores for this processor, which makes it possible to round the numbers down. On average, it is certainly not as fast as 7950X3D, but the best score gives us hope that further BIOS optimizations may increase the average score slightly.

What might also be worth noting is that there is also a single entry for the new Geekbench 6 benchmark. The data collected confirms the CPU boost up to 5730 MHz and was paired with DDR5-6000 memory (the newest version of the software shows memory clock). In this case, the processor scores 2767 points in single-core test and 19114 points in multi-core, which is indeed very close to 7950X, but no doubt it is a lower score.
