This time we will also skip the render tests we covered yesterday. The only thing worth noting is that yesterday’s results from the VideoCardz website editors have been surpassed by the vast majority of reviews, especially in terms of multi-core performance. If in CineBench R23 VideoCardz reported 37423 points for Ryzen 9 7950X, the editors of Guru 3D measured 37959 points, PCWorld 37973, TechPowerUp 38195 points, igor’sLAB 38226 points, Anandtech 38294 points, Golem 38558 ComputerBase 38648 points and WCCFTech 38772 points .

Let’s take a look at the games. The next generation of graphics cards will bring a generational change in performance far above average. This means, on the one hand, that it will require relatively powerful processors, and on the other hand, that the gaming performance of the new processors cannot be tested with existing graphics cards at common resolutions, because the gaming performance is simply limited by the graphics card. . If we look at the game’s performance tested on existing graphics at low resolutions, it looks like this:

The Ryzen 5 7600X appears to be a great gaming processor, especially considering the price. In all but one gaming test, it ranks among the four most powerful gaming processors, while all those who beat it repeatedly are significantly or several times more expensive. It also outperforms the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with V-cache three times. However, the large last-level cache remains unexplored for the four games tested. However, that’s not surprising. Some recent-generation processors have also had issues with gaming performance outpacing the older Broadwell with its 128MB of eDRAM.

Zen 4 and Ryzen 7000 processors are the first in the AMD portfolio to support AVX-512. The advantages of AVX-512 in the desktop are marginal, on the other hand it cannot be said that AVX-512 support would hinder anything. Again, we borrow Anandtech’s website measurement, which perfectly describes the situation:

In the 3D Particle Movement test you can choose whether to use AVX (-512). On the left you can see the results without and including AVX and AVX-512 respectively. The Ryzen 9 7950X far surpasses all other processors. When AVX support is not used (right graph), the Ryzen 9 7950X still leads all other processors, even by around ten percent compared to Zen 4 and in multiples of Intel processors. In short, the situation is that, with or without the AVX-512, the Ryzen 9 7950X is currently the most powerful processor in application tests.

In the average application tests measured by ComputerBase, the Ryzen 9 7950X (with a power limit of 230 watts) achieves exactly 50% more performance than the Core i9-12900K (with a power limit of 241 watts). If Eco mode is activated on Ryzen, which lowers the power limit to 142 watts (~ 105 W TDP), the CPU performance drops by less than 5%. With a limit of 88 watts (~ 65 W TDP), the performance is still 12% higher than the Ryzen 9 5950X (105 W TDP / 142 W) and at the limit of 65 watts (~ 45 W TDP) the performance of the Ryzen 9 7950X are 3% higher than the Core i9-12900K with a limit of 241 watts. Energy efficiency Zen 4 it is therefore at the same power s Alder lake 3.8 times higher.

The consumption test of the processor itself (!) Under load shows that the Ryzen 9 7950X does not exceed 200 watts (despite the limit of 230 watts), while the last four generations of competing top models do not fall into this value.

A test of the consumption of the whole assembly (!) When the processor is loaded using the AVX code is similar. The Ryzen 9 7950X is closer in power consumption to the Core i7 series processors than the latest generations of the Core i9 series.
