AMD Ryzen 7 7700X benchmark result: better than the Ryzen 7 5800X & Core i7-12700K
Among AMD’s first four Ryzen 7000 processors, the Ryzen 7 7700X is an octa-core processor at a mainstream price. The price of $399 is lower than when the Ryzen 7 5800X was first launched. Now the Geekbench and CPU-Z scores of this processor have been leaked, and the test results show that the 8-core Zen 4 architecture can directly compete with the Core i7-12700K.
The Ryzen 7 7700X is a product with 8 cores and 16 threads. AMD positions it as the best choice for gamers. Its base clock is 4.5GHz, and its boost clock is 5.4GHz. It has a 32MB L3 cache, TDP is 105W, and the PPT is 142W.
From the test results, there is a huge difference between the single-threaded and multi-threaded benchmark points of the Ryzen 7 7700X in the two tests. Its IPC improvement in CPU-Z is only 1%, and in Geekbench it is 14%. These two tests can be regarded as the best and worst cases of the Zen 4 processor.
The CPU-Z test was carried out on the Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master motherboard. From the screenshots, we can see that the frequency of the processor is 5.42GHz, the operating voltage is 1.152V, and the temperature is about 71°C. The software reports that its maximum frequency multiplier is 55.5. Its single-thread score in CPU-Z is 774, and the multi-thread score is 8381. Compared with the Ryzen 7 5800X, the single-thread score is increased by 20%, and the multi-thread score is increased by 27%. The single-threaded performance is actually very close to the Core i7-12700K, a tight 3% difference, and of course, the multi-threaded score is 15% behind.
In the Geekbench 5 test, the single-threaded score of the Ryzen 7 7700X is 2209, and the multi-threaded score is 14459. The single-thread performance is 32% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, 19% faster than the Core i7-12700K, and even 10% faster than the Core i7-13700K. The multi-threaded performance of the Ryzen 7 7700X is 40% higher than that of the Ryzen 7 5800X, 3% faster than the Core i7-12700K, and 27% lower than the Core i7-13700K.
From the results, the game performance of the Ryzen 7 7700X should be better than the current Core i7-12700K. After all, the extra E-Core of the latter has basically no effect on the game. If the E-Core is turned off, the multi-threaded performance of the Core i7-12700K is estimated to be inferior to that of the Ryzen 7 7700X.
