Geekbench 6 (Single-Core)

Geekbench 6 is a benchmark for modern computers, notebooks and smartphones. What is new is an optimized utilization of newer CPU architectures, e.g. based on the big.LITTLE concept and combining CPU cores of different sizes. The single-core benchmark only evaluates the performance of the fastest CPU core, the number of CPU cores in a processor is irrelevant here.

Efficiency of the processor under full load in the Cinebench R23 (multi-core) benchmark. The benchmark result is divided by the average energy required (CPU package power in watts). The higher the value, the more efficient the CPU is under full load.

Why the new AMD Ryzen 7000 processors for the AM5 socket are currently not a good deal
Why the new AMD Ryzen 7000 processors for the AM5 socket are currently not a good deal
Posted by Stefan on 2022-10-11
At the end of September 2022, the time had come: AMD presented its latest desktop processors called AMD Ryzen 7000. Initially, 4 processors with 6 to 16 CPU cores were released.

The new socket AM5 (LGA 1718) is used for the first time, which is intended to replace the very durable socket AM4 introduced in 2017 as AMDs mainstream platform. This includes (depending on the chipset) PCIe 5.0 support as well as the exclusive use of DDR5 memory on all AM5 mainboards.

Officially, DDR5-5200 is the maximum, but with AMDs EXPO Technology which is similar to Intel's XMP 3.0, AMD now also has a solution for easy overclocking of the main memory. AMD itself names DDR5-6000 as the sweet spot for the new AMD Ryzen 7000 processors.

The AMD Ryzen processors are designed for the mid to high-end range and are grouped into the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 classes. AMD follows the market leader Intel, which groups its Core i series (Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9) identically.

The AMD Ryzen processors were first introduced by AMD in Q1 2017. They are the successor to the not particularly successful AMD Bulldozer processors. The latter were manufactured using an outdated manufacturing process and could not keep up with the competing products from Intel. AMD lost a large portion of its desktop processor market share during this period.

In September, both AMD and Intel are introducing their new mainstream desktop processors. It doesn't seem to have been as close as this year for a long time, leaked benchmarks of the new top models from AMD and Intel point to a head-to-head race.

This year even the 6 GHz clock limit is almost within reach. With a good cooler and some overclocking it should be possible to reach the 6 GHz limit. But even in series production, the manufacturers try to realize the highest possible clock frequency, at least on one core.

Description of the processor

The AMD Ryzen 5 7600X is currently the smallest of the four Zen4 processors that AMD presented on August 29th. It has 6 cores and supports simultaneous multi-threading, so that a total of 12 threads are available.

With the introduction of the Zen 4 processors, AMD also introduced a new socket: AM5 (LGA 1718). Among other things, the socket allows a more even and better energy supply to the processor. As a result, AMD was able to significantly increase the clock frequencies of the new processors, especially when several CPU cores are fully utilized.

The base clock frequency of the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X is a high 4.7 GHz. Up to 5.3 GHz are possible in Turbo mode (AMD Precision Boost 2). The new CPUs not only benefit from the high clock frequencies in single-core but also in multi-core operation.

For the first time since the introduction of the Ryzen desktop processors, they have integrated graphics (iGPU). Although this only has two execution units, it is sufficient to connect screens to the computer, even with high resolutions. The technology used here is the RDNA-2 solution, which will be replaced in dedicated graphics cards this year by the successor generation RDNA-3.

Intel has been following the same path for many years and installs a small iGPU in most desktop processors. This means that the processor can also be used without a dedicated graphics card, which can be a great advantage in many areas of application.

For the first time, AMD processors with Zen4 and socket AM5 now support DDR5 memory. The memory controller is released up to DDR5-5200, but the processors use the newly introduced AMD EXPO technology to overclock the main memory. AMD itself used e.g. DDR5-6000 RAM in its presentation, which again significantly increases the bandwidth of the system.
