The first Ryzen 7000 CPUs are scheduled to go on sale from September 27th, and the first benchmarks for the Ryzen 7 7700X have now appeared.
The Ryzen 7 7700X can even compete with the Core i9-12900K.
The first performance data for the new Ryzen 7 7700X have appeared online – almost three weeks before the official start of sales. According to Videocardz, a corresponding entry has been added to the CPU-Z validation website. Although this disappeared from the website after a short time, it was documented by screenshots.

CPU-Z benchmark: Ryzen 7 7700X beats Core i9-12900K
According to the entry, all eight cores clock at the same frequency of 5,425 MHz, which is 25 MHz higher than the official specification of 5.4 GHz. The TDP of the Zen4 CPU is known to be 105 watts, which is 40 watts more than the predecessor.
In the CPU-Z test, the CPU achieves a single-core value of 774 points and a multi-core value of 8381 points. It was tested with a motherboard from Gigabyte, the X670E AORUS Master, in combination with DDR5-6400 CL30 RAM. With this result, the single-core performance of the Ryzen 7 7700X is 21 percent higher than that of the Ryzen 7 5800X (eight cores) and 20 percent higher than that of the Ryzen 9 5950X (16 cores). The Ryzen 7 7700X can just surpass the Intel Core i5-12600K (Alder Lake, 10 cores) (+ one percent), but has to admit defeat to the Core i7-12700K (12 cores).
In contrast, the AMD CPU puts the competition in its place when it comes to multi-core performance. Here the Ryzen 7 7700X even surpasses the Core i9-12900K, although the latter has twice the number of cores. However, it must be taken into account that the 16 cores of the Intel CPU are divided into eight performance and eight efficiency cores. Compared to the Core i7-12700K, the performance increase is eight percent. The 7700X even beats its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800X, by 28 percent.
In addition to the CPU-Z benchmark, results from Geekbench 5 have also appeared. The results look a bit different here: The Ryzen 7 7700X outperforms the Intel Core i7-12700K by 16 percent in the single-core benchmark, but only by two percent in multi-core.
