AMD's Ryzen 5 7600X 6-Core "Zen 4" CPU has once again shown up and this time, it has been benchmarked within UserBenchmark.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6-Core "Zen 4" CPU Samples Crushes Intel's Core i9-12900K In Single-Core Performance, Up To 23% Faster Multi-Threaded Perf Versus 5600X
The AMD Ryzen 5 7600X "Zen 4" CPU appeared within the UserBenchmark database and was spotted by TUM_APISAK. According to the info available, the chip is an engineering sample with OPN id '100-000000593-20_Y'. The same chip had previously appeared within the Basemark GPU benchmark running on a Gigabyte X670E motherboard. The latest entry shows the chip running on the NZXT B650 motherboard which is manufactured by ASRock. The platform was running two 16 GB DDR5-4800 memory modules.
Since this is the same chip that has been doing the rounds, it looks like we can confirm that the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X will offer 6 cores and 12 threads based on the Zen 4 core architecture. The CPU had a base clock of 4.4 GHz and boosted to an average clock speed of 4.95 GHz. This is not going to be the final boost clock since we have seen Ryzen 7000 samples running far above the 5.00 GHz range. The base clock is 700 MHz higher than the Ryzen 5 5600X which clocked at 3.70 GHz (base frequency).
In terms of performance, while the UserBenchmark is known to be biased towards Intel CPUs, the chip AMD Ryzen 5 7600X still outperforms Intel's flagship Core i9-12900K in single-core tests. The Ryzen 5 7600X scores an impressive 243 points whereas the Intel Core i9-12900K scores an average of 200 points. This is a 20% higher single-threaded performance increase. Compared to the Ryzen 5 5600X, the Zen 4 chip offers a 55% performance boost in single-core tests.
Moving on to the multi-threaded benchmarks, the chip does lose out to the Core i9-12900K here since it only packs 6 cores and 12 threads versus the 16 cores and 24 threads on Intel's flagship but compared to the Ryzen 5 5600X, the CPU offers a 23% performance uplift which is really good and once again, we don't know if all of the cores were boosting properly so we can be looking at up to 30% performance increase with the retail chip.
With that said, the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs including the Ryzen 5 7600X should make their way to retail by September 2022 as indicated in previous rumors. The chip is one of the four Zen 4 CPUs that was recently leaked and confirmed by AMD themselves.
