From the performance point of view, 7700X must have an excellent photo editing and processing performance. Of course, this project ultimately wins Comparing Intel processors.
AIDA64 processor memory, 7-Zip compression test
The memory test is carried out using AIDA64, but AIDA64 has not been officially optimized for the Ryzen 7000 processor, so there should be room for improvement in the test memory read and write performance.
Therefore, the test results seem to be a bit strange. In short, the memory performance will be more accurate after AIDA64 is updated. The data is only provided for your reference.
WinRAR is the most commonly used compression tool. In terms of performance, 7950X can reach 57546 KB/s, 7900X 52916 KB/s, 7700X 41201 KB/s, which beats i9-12900K’s 39674 KB/s, and 7600X’s 33784 KB/s.
7-Zip is another well-known and free compression tool that can effectively utilize the performance of multi-core. In terms of GIPS performance of compression and decompression, the 7950X still wins the championship and far outperforms the i9-12900K.

3DMark CPU performance and FS, TS benchmarks
Computer graphics game performance test tool 3DMark, the mainstream Direct X11 test Fire Strike, and Direct X12 Time Spy test.
Judging from the running scores, the 7950X scored 47806 points in Fire Strike, 7900X 42589 points, 7700X 3624 points, and 7600X 30360 points. As for the Time Spy test, the 7950X scored 19602 points in the CPU, 7900X 16370 points, 7700X 14395, and 7600X scored 10484 points.
The 3DMark CPU test mainly tests the physical operation and custom simulation of the CPU and tests the performance of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and the maximum thread of the processor respectively, and the performance of more than 16 threads will belong to 3D Rendering, audio and video output will be used. Generally, Direct X12 games prefer 8T threads, and the following threads are the preferences of old games.
In the 1T-4T-test, the processor performance is quite close, but at 8T, the 7900X has 8047 points, which is better than the 7916 points of the i9-12900K, but when it is upgraded to 16T and MAX, it is 7950X and 7900X. There is no suspense to win the championship. It can be seen that the 7900X performs better in the Direct X12 game preference 8T thread.
9+2 AAA gaming games on processor performance test
9 AAA game performance tests, including the entry-level “F1 2020” racing game, the adventure “Tomb Raider: Shadow,” “Horizon: Expecting Dawn,” and the performance-heavy “Edge Forbidden 3”, “Blood Killer 2”, “Assassin’s Creed: Viking Age,” and games such as “Polar Trench 6”, “Marvel Interstellar” and “Electric Traitor 2077” that support light pursuit.
The tests were conducted with the In-Game Benchmark test at 1080p resolution and the highest default settings of the game. Except for “Dian Yu Ke 2077”, which enabled DLSS acceleration, the rest of the games did not use DLSS or FSR acceleration.
Among the nine games, the 7950X achieved an average of 160.3 FPS, 7900X 159.4 FPS, 7700X 158.9 FPS, and 7600X 159.3 FPS, but slightly lost to the i9-12900 K’s 163 FPS, but tied with the i7-12700K and won the i5- 12600K.
E-sports games focus on the tactical and technical competition between players and teams, so they do not require much picture quality, which also allows such games to have a fairly high average FPS performance on high-end CPUs and GPUs, especially in 1080p resolution. Under the lower speed, the improvement of CPU performance and clock can increase the FPS performance of the game.
The test used two games, “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” (CS: GO) and “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege” (R6), and tested at 1080p resolution and the highest settings of the game.
CS: GO game 7950X achieves the high performance of 763.5 FPS, 7900X 739.5 FPS, 7700X 737.7 FPS, 7600X also has 755.5 FPS; but R6 is the opposite, 7950X only 612 FPS, a small loss to i9-12900K’s 634 FPS.
Ryzen 7950X and 7600X processor temperature and power consumption test
In terms of stress test, the test uses ROG STRIX LC II 280mm water-cooled radiator, fan and water pump with full speed settings, and compares AIDA64 CPU and FPU burn-in respectively; for general computer use, it is relatively close to the temperature performance of AIDA64 CPU test, while FPU test is the highest load with higher power consumption.
The AIDA64 CPU stress test is relatively close to the general computer usage. 7950X is pressed at 68.6°C under full-core 5.28GHz, 7900X 5.31GHz / 64.9°C, 7700X 5.37GHz / 64°C, 7600X 5.45GHz / 64.5°C. The temperature performance is close to the i9-12900K for comparison, but a little hotter than the i7 and i5.
Then under the AIDA64 FPU stress test, the 7950X clock was slightly reduced by 5.03GHz to the upper limit of the preset TjMAX temperature wall of 95.1°C, while the 7900X 5.14GHz / 91°C, 7700X 5.16GHz / 91°C, 7600X 5.26GHz / 88.1°C; the highest temperature is comparable to i9-12900K, but much higher than i7 and i5.
The temperature performance of Cinebench R23 is the same as the above-mentioned FPU in the same test, but the temperature of this generation of Ryzen 7000 is really increased a lot. It is recommended to use it with a water-cooled radiator of 240mm or more. Or make good use of Offset to drop the voltage to get better temperature performance.
As for CPU power consumption, it is mainly based on CPU Package Power. Under the AIDA64 CPU test, 7950X reaches 137W, 7900X 115.2W, 7700X 84.7W, 7600X 74.9W, and the performance of i9, i7 and i5 is comparable. Then under the FPU stress test, 7950X came to 206W, 7900X 185.3W, 7700X 138.9W, 7600X 114.8W, but it still saves more power than Intel.
In this generation, the temperature and power consumption will increase due to the increase of the clock frequency. Players who choose 7950X and 7900X processors are recommended to reserve at least 300W for the processor and 400W for high-end graphics cards ( Flagship card 500W), at least 850W will be recommended, after all, there is still power for peripherals, RGB, fans, SSD, HDD, etc.
For 7700X and 7600X, the processor is around 200W, and the required power supply specifications are adjusted according to the matching graphics card.
The new generation of AMD Ryzen 7000 processors has a significant increase in clock speed. Not only does the full core run above 5.0GHz, but the single core can reach a high clock of 5.7GHz Boost. Compared with the previous generation, it has a good performance improvement. But the current AMD strategy is to let Ryzen 7000 replace the existing Ryzen 5000 high-end products.
Therefore, in the AMD market, Ryzen 7000 is the flagship, high-end to the mainstream high-performance processor, while the original entry-level model is continued by Ryzen 5000. Therefore, in comparison, the Ryzen 7000 will undoubtedly compete with the 12th generation Intel Core. There’s even a future Gen 13 update to face.
In terms of performance, the two high-core Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X face off against the i9-12900K in the middle, not only in multi-core, rendering, computer performance, and creation performance but also better than the i9-12900K, although they lose a little in-game performance. The difference is absolutely bearable.
However, the Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X with fewer cores will lose in multi-core and rendering performance when facing the i7-12700K and i5-12600K with more cores, but the overall computer performance and game performance can be said to be on an equal footing.
Therefore, in the US, the price of 7950X is higher at US$739.99, but the price of 7900X starts at US$589.99 to face the i9-12900K; it may be because there is no need to sacrifice in the first wave, so the price of 7900X is Pretty ok.
As for the price of 7700X US$419.60 and 7600X US$299, it is a few hundred dollars more expensive than the opponent. At present, the price is similar to that of the Ryzen 5000 era at that time, but in the absence of a complete win, the new Players also have to buy new X670 or B650 series motherboards and DDR5 memory, which also makes this generation of AMD upgrade barriers higher than previous generations.
But maybe after the 13th generation of Ryzen 7000’s real enemy is launched, and it is killed by Intel with the 12th and 13th generation products, it may really stimulate the aroma of the Ryzen platform. As for how AMD Zen 5 will break through in the future, let us continue to test it.
