AMD Ryzen 9 7950X

 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 performance of the R9 7950X is clearly better than the old Ryzen 9 5950X thanks to the improved architecture and modern 5nm process. Compared to Intels Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K the single-core performance is slightly lower and the multi-core performance slightly faster. The gaming performance is a bit lower.

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.

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