Ryzen 9000: first leaks and tests

The first leaks about AMD Ryzen 9000 series processors continue to appear online thanks to the Wccftech website. While the media has received confidential and preliminary benchmark data from motherboard partners, the focus is on how the new Zen5 processors compare to the previous Zen4 models.


AMD plans to introduce four new models for socket AM5: the 16-core Ryzen 9 9950X, the 12-core Ryzen 9 9900X, the 8-core Ryzen 9 9700X and the 6-core Ryzen 5 9600X. While AMD has not revealed pricing for these processors, they are expected to be similar to the Ryzen 7000 series at launch.

According to reports, the 12-core Ryzen 9 9900X performs excellently in multi-core tests. The processor was tested on an X670E motherboard with an optimized BIOS AGESA for the Ryzen 9000 series. 800 series motherboards are not expected to ship until September, so the initial focus will be on existing platforms.

A comparison of the Ryzen 9 9900X with the Ryzen 9 7900X shows that the new processor has a lower TDP, although both have the same number of cores and a maximum clock speed of 5.6 GHz. In Cinebench R23 tests, the Ryzen 9 7900X scores around 29,000 points, while the Ryzen 9 9900X reaches 33,000 points at stock settings, which represents a 14% improvement with a lower TDP. In tests with Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) enabled, the 9900X achieves a score of 34,500, which is 18% higher than the Zen4.
