AMD has released the Raider 7000 series and will not unblock the performance until the end of the month, but the sneak peek cannot be stopped.
The B-site UP owner “Yin Zhiping the Coward” played with a first and lowest-end model of the Dragon 5 7600X and overclocked it to 5.4GHz and 5.6GHz for testing, but only ran the single-core performance.
6 cores and 12 threads, default frequency 4.7-5.3GHz, L2 cache 6MB, L2 cache 32MB, TDP 105W, the official game performance is higher than i9-12900K 5%.
First of all, CPU-Z, single-core score 652.8 points at default frequency, 734.1 points at 5.6GHz frequency, an improvement of 12.5%, but still not up to the level of the 12th generation Core, not to mention the 13th generation.
However, AMD has also admitted that CPU-Z is one of the smallest performance improvements of the Zen4 architecture, with an IPC that is only about 1% higher, and such a result is not surprising.
Next is CineBench R23, with a single-core performance of 1784 points at the default frequency and 1920 points at 5.4GHz, an improvement of 7.6%, still not able to dry up the 12th generation.
Also tested was the DDR5-6000 memory latency, which was as low as 69.9ns, not very high and not very low.
The i9-12900K can do about 66ns of latency at the same memory frequency.
