Samuel Willetts >Published Sep 5, 2022 >AMDGaming hardwareThe AMD Ryzen 9-7950X will be the world's most powerful processor when it arrives later in the month. It promises new levels of performance for single-core as well as multi-core workloads. It remains to be determined how powerful the Zen 4 CPU will be, but benchmarks suggest it is significantly more powerful than its Intel Core counterpart.

A post by nm68gus on the Chiphell forums (via 9550pro), appears to show an engineering example of an AMD Ryzen9 7950X scoring just short of 39,000 points in Cinebench 23. We do know that the system was water cooled, although other details such as power consumption are not available.

According to Videocardz data, the AMD Ryzen9 7950X is around 1.4x faster than the Intel Core i912900K multi-core processor. The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X may easily surpass the 13th Gen Core series' best gaming CPU, also known as Raptor Lake. This puts team blue in a difficult spot.

We should be careful with these leaks. However, we cannot wait to test the AMD Ryzen7000 processors ourselves. If you are thinking about upgrading your gaming computer with the new chips from team red, you should know what the "sweet spot” DDR5 RAM speed for your Zen 4 CPU.
