AMD Ryzen 9 7950X

AMD R9 7950X

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is a fast high-end desktop processor of the Raphael series. It offers 16 cores based on the Zen 4 architecture that supports hyperthreading (32 threads). The cores clock from 4.5 (base) up to 5.7 GHz (single core boost). The 7950X is the second fastest Ryzen at launch.

The Raphael series still uses a chiplet design with two CCD-clusters (each with 8 possible cores) in 5nm and an IO-die (including the memory controller and the Radeon Graphics iGPU) in 6nm.

Performance

The average 7950X in our database is in the same league as the Core i9-13900K, Ryzen 9 7945HX, Ryzen 9 7950X3D, as far as multi-thread benchmark scores are concerned. This is a super-fast chip, as of mid 2023.

The R9 7950X is rated at a TDP of 170 Watt and proved to be rather power-hungry in applications and games.
