Ryzen 5 7600X 22 percent faster than 12900K in single core
An engineering sample of the Ryzen 5 7600X could outperform the Core i9-12900K, especially in the single-core area.
The upcoming Ryzen 7000 CPUs should be significantly faster than previous CPUs from AMD.
Both AMD and Intel are currently preparing for the release of their new CPU models. While AMD is working on new processors with the Ryzen 7000 CPUs, Intel also wants to offer fresh CPUs with more cores and a higher clock rate with Raptor Lake (Core 13000) this year. Current engineering samples of both CPU generations appear again and again. These are early test patterns designed to test the processor’s limits.
700 MHz higher base clock
An engineering sample called AMD OPN 100-000000593-20_Y is currently doing the rounds. This CPU was tested together with an ASRock N7-B65XT motherboard. According to an entry in Userbenchmark, the CPU is a Ryzen with six cores and a base clock of 4.4 GHz. 4.95 GHz is still possible in Turbo. The upcoming CPU clocks significantly higher than the available Ryzen 5 5600X model, which already offers 700 MHz less in the base clock. The Turbo turns out to be 350 MHz more but less impressively higher.
22 percent faster than Core i9-12900K
With these new values, the Ryzen 5 7600X has 56 percent more computing power on one core than the Ryzen 5 5600X. All cores together offer at least 38 percent more performance. If, on the other hand, the Intel Core i9-12900K is used as a comparison, the Ryzen 5 7600X has a 22 percent higher computing power on one core. This gives hope that the upcoming Ryzen processors will catch up significantly compared to the current Intel competition. It remains to be seen how the two upcoming CPU generations will fare in a direct comparison.
