AMD Ryzen 9 9900X: first test on Geekbench

AMD is preparing to release a new 12-core Ryzen 9 9900X processor, which will be part of the "Granite Ridge" series based on the Zen5 architecture. While it's not the most powerful processor in the lineup, it can reach speeds of up to 5,6 GHz, and even higher when using XFR/PBO settings. This makes it almost as fast in single-core tasks as the 16GHz 9-core Ryzen 9950 5,7X.


The first Geekbench test for the Ryzen 9 9900X showed excellent results: 3401 points in the single-core test and 19756 points in the multi-core test. This makes it the most powerful desktop processor in the Geekbench database at the moment.

Performance table:

Processor Single core test Multi-core test
AMD Ryzen 9 9900X 3401 19756
Intel Core i9-14900K 3120 20350
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X 3000 19700
AMD Ryzen 9 7900X 2970 18150
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D 2950 20000
AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D 2870 17850

This is the only test in the Geekbench database so far, and it is unknown if PBO settings were used. The rest of the data is taken from the official Geekbench rating.

Compared to its competitor, the Intel Core i9-14900K, the Ryzen 9 9900X is 10% faster in single-core tests and 5% slower in multi-core tests. It also beats the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X and 7950X3D in multi-core tests. Compared to the previous model, the Ryzen 9 7900X, the new processor is 16% faster in single-core tasks and 10% faster in multi-core tasks.
