Combined with the tweets from @TUM_APISAK, @Harukaze5719 and @BenchLeaks, we also have a clear understanding of the benchmark performance of the AMD Ryzen R7-7700X. It can be seen that as an 8C / 16T Zen 4 AM5 desktop processor, its running score not only beats its previous generation R7-5800X (8C / 16T), but also kicks the Intel 12th generation with 8P+4E (12C / 20T) design. Alder Lake Core i7-12700K.

In terms of specifications, the R7-7700X has 8C / 16T (only 1 set of CCDs), and the cache is 8MB L2 + 32MB L3.
Base frequency 4.5 GHz / boost up to 5.4 GHz, low thermal design power (TDP), but package power (PPT) of 142W.

The test platform selected the retail version of the X670E AORUS Master motherboard, with an operating voltage of 1.152 V and an all-core frequency of 5.42 GHz.
The maximum multiplier reported by the software is 55.5x, so the peak frequency is limited to 5.5 GHz. The operating temperature is around 71 ℃, but it is not clear whether it is water cooling, air cooling, or other cooling methods.

In the Geekbench 5 and CPU-Z benchmark projects, you can see a large difference in the single-core/multi-thread performance of the R7-7700X.
The IPC improvement shown by CPU-Z is only 1%, while the increase in Geekbench is as high as 14% – presumably reflecting the worst/best performance of the 8-core Zen 4 CPU, respectively.

In the end, its CPU-Z single-core score was 774 / multi-core score was 8381, which was 20% and 27% higher than the ST / MT of the previous generation R7-5800X and R7-7700X, respectively.
CPU-Z multi-core performance comparison
Even compared to the Alder Lake Core i7-12700K, the single-core gap is only 3%. However, in terms of multi-threading, the R7-7700X, which has the disadvantage of core count, is still opened by a 15% gap.
Geekbench 5 – single-core performance comparison
As for the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the R7-7700X delivered an impressive single-core 2209 / multi-core 14459 – 32% ahead of the R7-5800X and 19% faster than the i7-12700K (10% higher than the i7-13700K in a single thread).
Geekbench 5 – Multi-core performance comparison
In the multi-core test, the R7-7700X is 40% higher than the R7-5800X and slightly ahead of the i7-12700K by 3%. However, compared with the i7-13700K designed with 8P+8E (16C / 24T), the R7-7700X is still 27% lower.

Finally, the R7-7700X will arrive on September 27 with the new generation AM5 platform / X670E motherboard, along with other Ryzen 7000 series Zen 4 desktop processors.
