AMD Ryzen 5 7600X @ 5GHz Ends up 20% Faster than the Intel Core i9-12900K in ST, 25% Faster than the 5600X in MT Benchmarks [UB Leak]

A Userbench benchmark of a hex-core Zen 4 part has surfaced, showcasing impressive gains and easing concerns over the single-threaded capabilities of the next-gen Ryzen processors. The SKU in question is likely the Ryzen 5 7600X with a base and boost clock of 4.4GHz and 4.95GHz, respectively. This matches with what AMD has said about the 5GHz+ load frequencies of its next-gen CPUs.

Userbenchmark is known to heavily favor Intel with rather idiotic claims about AMD’s “incompetence”. Ironically, the Ryzen 5 7600X rips through its Alder Lake rivals with a score of 243 points, leading the Core i9-12900K and i5-12600K by 20% and 25%, respectively.

The Core i9-12900K and the 12600K are still faster in the multi-threaded benchmark on account of the higher core counts but the Ryzen 5 7600X still manages a respectable 1,478 points, nipping at the heels of the Ryzen 7 5800X, and trailing the Core i5-12600K by 27%. While the single-threaded performance is certainly worthy of praise, the multi-threaded performance leaves much to be desired. The Core i5-13600K will land roughly a month after the Ryzen 5 7600X with fourteen cores: 6P and 8E, providing it a nifty multi-threaded gain over the 12600K and easily beating the 7600X.

Unless AMD prices the Ryzen 7 7700X the same as the Core i5-13600K, it’ll be a very short contest between Raptor Lake and Raphael. The Ryzen 5 7600X looks more suited to compete with the Core i5-13600F which should still be a hex-core part and launch much later than the unlocked K series SKUs.
