AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Cinebench R23 Results Leak Online!

With the AMD Ryzen 7000 series now officially confirmed and set for release before the end of this month, it was clearly only a matter of time before some, shall we say, ‘independent’ benchmarking figures began to appear online. Sure is the nature of any soon-to-be-released tech product.

Yes, AMD did, of course, tease us their own performance figures, but let’s be honest, these are always going to skewed in the manufacturer’s favour as much as possible (Intel, Nvidia, etc. – They all do it!).

Following a report via Videocardz, however, we have what may very well represent the first independent testing of the Ryzen 9 7950X leak online, and based on the results provided in Cinebench R23, the results are encouraging to say the least!

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X

Based on the initial results posted online, the AMD Ryzen 7950X certainly seems to be doing very well in the single-core stakes with it providing a result that is practically on par with an Intel i9-13900K result which leaked online last month. Comparatively, however, the multi-core is seemingly a little disappointing with it beating the i9-12900K, but falling notably short of its next-gen successor.

In this regard, however, this is an important factor to note with this original test. Namely, it was apparently conducted on an air cooler, and more so, not a particularly ‘good’ one if the sources are accurate.

A subsequent score posted online, again from the Ryzen 7950X, makes for much better reading. With the implementation of a liquid cooling solution (again, sadly not specified) the multi-core score jumped up by over 5,000 in the Cinebench R23 test. A pretty monumental margin and one that ultimately can only lead to one of two conclusions: Either the original air cooler used was exceptionally limited (maybe something like the AMD Wraith stock solution), or Ryzen 7000 simply needs some decent cooling performance to get the best out of it.

Better the two, I suspect the former. Air cooling solutions are generally perfectly adequate as long as they’re ideally placed with the right CPU. I wouldn’t, for example, fancy seeing a 7950X paired with an AMD Wraith or Spire here which, I suspect, was the case in the initial results.

More than anything though, this clearly opens up a whole avenue of questioning as to how good the 7950X can be. Particularly when partnered with a high-end cooling solution that will allow its 5.7GHz boost speed to run for as long as it can. – So far though, it seems clear that AMD’s new flagship is at least going to be as good as the best Intel will have to offer.
