AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Cinebench R23 Benchmark Leaked - Results are Higher Than Ryzen 9 5950X
Today we come across a new performance test of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X in the most popular benchmarking software to measure the performance of a CPU, and this is none other than Cinebench . Although yesterday we could see this same processor twice in said benchmarks, today it is once again more than clear that the cooling system will be more than essential for this processor to perform as any user should really expect.
Yesterday we could see how AMD's top-of-the-range processor will be very dependent on the cooling system. And it is that, with an air cooler, this processor was able to achieve a multi-core performance of 29,649 points . After using a high-end 360mm AIO water cooling system , this performance managed to increase to 36,256 points . Which makes it clear that, by air, the problem of temperatures will limit performance . We are talking about that, from an air cooler to a high-end liquid cooler, the performance improvement is 22% in this benchmark .
There is still more room for improvement: cooler and even more performance for the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X
Today we meet this processor again, in the form of an engineering sample, reaching a new performance record for a consumer CPU, without overclocking. In this case it reached 38,984 points , which is 7.5% more than yesterday , and a notable difference compared to the air-cooled benchmark, since we are talking about 31.5% more performance .
Obviously, it is necessary to enter into more interesting comparisons, and with these data it implies a performance improvement of 9.2% compared to the Intel Core i9-13900K. Of course, for now the same problems have not been reported for cooling, so to access this appreciable price difference, it will entail spending more than 200 euros on a cooling system that gives us access to said performance . Specifically, the liquid used is the ASUS ROG Ryujin 360 , which costs about 245 euros .
Performance of the top-of-the-range AMD Ryzen 9 compared to its Intel Core i9 counterpart
As you have seen, the difference in performance between cooling the CPU by air or by water is quite noticeable. Now the question is whether in the case of Intel the performance will present some improvement, or if the CPU is not seeing its performance limited due to temperature problems, which would mean that the AMD CPU is really more powerful , but requires a extremely expensive cooling system to solve a design problem.
We say design, since the dies are smaller, which implies a smaller cooling surface . To this is added that both dies are glued together , further favoring high temperatures. If we add to that the increase in frequencies, with the pertinent increase in energy consumption, matching that of Intel, then we have the perfect combination so that the temperature becomes a real problem . It shouldn't surprise us, it's what Intel did in the past, squeezing its silicon at high frequencies to increase performance.
For now, the only solution will be to use tools like Project Hydra , hoping that 1usmus will be able to make it easier for users to solve or minimize this problem by automatically adjusting the voltages .
