An apparent AMD Ryzen 5 7600X engineering sample has turned up on the UserBenchmark synthetic benchmark. The Zen 4 “Raphael” CPU churned out an average bench score of 117%, placing it above Intel’s Core i9-12900K. The Ryzen 5 7600X also managed to considerably outscore the Alder Lake part in single-core speed.

Serial tipster APISAK is back with a big one this time, as the data-miner has spotted none other than a Zen 4 Raphael engineering sample (ES) knocking the spots off a high-end Intel rival on what is frequently considered to be a Team Blue stronghold site, UserBenchmark. The ES has the designation 100-000000593-20_Y and is widely believed to be the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 7600X. Along with an ASRock N7-B65XT motherboard, the Ryzen 7000 part managed to cook up an overall score of 117% while producing 246 points in the normal test, 1,082 points in the heavy test, and 1,478 points in the server test.

If the score of 117% became an average mark over multiple sample testing, this would place the Ryzen 5 7600X firmly above all other contenders bar one, with the Intel Core i9-12900KS residing in first position on 118%. However, for an AMD processor to strike so highly on UserBenchmark is something of a miracle in itself, considering the highest-rated chip from Team Red, the Ryzen 9 5950X, is currently stuck in 16th place in the average bench chart. In addition to the incredible scores, the 6-core, 12-thread engineering sample demonstrated a hefty base clock of 4.4 GHz and a turbo of 4.95 GHz.

Unsurprisingly, the Raphael chip only shows minor gains over the Intel Core i9-12900K in multi-core testing as the latter part consists of 16 cores (8P + 8E) and 24 threads, but the single-core difference is recorded as a stunning +22% lead for the Ryzen 5 7600X. APISAK also compares this new sample against its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 5600X, where it shows some phenomenal differences. The 2-core gain sits at +38%, with +40% for 8-core and +49% for 4-core workload testing. However, the single-core performance gain for the Zen 4 chip is an amazing +56%, once again indicating that Intel’s Raptor Lake family will have one heck of a scrap on its hands when it eventually has to face-off against AMD’s Raphael series.
