Sombody with the nickname orangezone uploaded a CPU-Z validation for a retail AMD Ryzen 7 7700X processor, disclosing crucial characteristics such as 5.425 GHz speeds @ 1.152 V core-voltage.
The submission includes a CPU-Z Bench run for the chip, which yields 774 points for single-threaded performance and 8381 points for multi-threaded performance of the 8-core/16-thread processor. The single-threaded performance is about 20% greater than the previous-generation flagship Ryzen 9 5950X and approximately 1% quicker than the Core i9-12900K. (“Golden Cove” P-core). This test was carried out on a Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master motherboard with DDR5-6400 CL30 memory.
BenchLeaks also discovered a Geekbench test on the Ryzen 7 7700X on an ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Hero with DDR5-6000 RAM. In Geekbench 5.4.5, the CPU earned 2209 points in the single-threaded test and 14459 points in the multi-threaded test. This is an unexpected conclusion, since it puts the 7700X’s single-threaded performance at 16% better than the Core i7-12700K, and a curious 2% higher than the 8P+4E “Alder Lake” chip in multi-threaded testing. When it debuts on sale on September 27th, the 7700X will compete in the same market category as the i7-12700K.
