Leaked Benchmarks Show AMD Ryzen 9000 Series Impressive Performance; Atleast 14% Improvement Over Previous-Gen

AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9000 series processors are generating considerable buzz with their “Zen 5” architecture. Recent leaks have unveiled benchmark results for three key models: the Ryzen 9 9900X, Ryzen 7 9700X, and Ryzen 5 9600X. These benchmarks reveal impressive improvements in performance, setting the stage for AMD’s next major release.

Ryzen 9 9900X leaked benchmarks

The Ryzen 9 9900X is a 12-core Zen 5 processor but it is not the top SKU, which is the 16-core Ryzen 9 9950X. Clocking up to 5.6 GHz, and potentially higher with XFR/PBO settings, this processor is a powerhouse and we have leaked benchmarks for it.

The Geekbench scores for the Ryzen 9 9900X are amazing. It achieved a single-core score of 3401 points and a multi-core score of 19756 points, currently the highest among desktop CPUs listed in the Geekbench database.

  • Single-Core Performance: Surpasses the Intel Core i9-14900K by at least 10%.
  • Multi-Core Performance: While 5% slower than the Core i9-14900K, it already outperforms the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X and 7950X3D in multi-core tests.
  • Generational Gains: Compared to the Ryzen 9 7900X, the 9900X is 16% faster in single-core and 10% faster in multi-core performance.
