AMD Ryzen 7 7700X vs AMD Ryzen 9 7950X vs AMD Ryzen 9 7900X

AMD Ryzen 7 7700X

► remove from comparison AMD R7 7700X

The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X is a fast high-end desktop processor of the Raphael series. It offers 8 cores based on the Zen 4 architecture that supports hyperthreading (16 threads). The cores clock from 4.5 (base) up to 5.4 GHz (single core boost). Compared to the faster Ryzen 9 CPUs (like the 7900X), the R7 offers less cores and slightly lower clock speeds.

The performance of the R7 7700X is clearly better than the old Ryzen 7 of the 5000 generation thanks to the improved architecture and modern 5nm process. Compared to Intels Alder Lake Core i7-12900K the performance is quite similar but stays behind the newer Rocket Lake i5-13600K (multi-threaded).

The Raphael series still uses a chiplet design with two CCD-clusters (each with 8 possible cores, so only one used for the 7700X) in 5nm and an IO-die (including the memory controller and the Radeon Graphics iGPU) in 6nm.

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X

► remove from comparison 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.

AMD Ryzen 9 7900X

► remove from comparison AMD R9 7900X

The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X is a fast high-end desktop processor of the Raphael series. It offers 12 cores based on the Zen 4 architecture that supports hyperthreading (24 threads). The cores clock from 4.7 (base) up to 5.7 GHz (single core boost). When all 12 cores are fully loaded, 5.1 GHz is the max. clock speed. The 7900X is the second fastest Ryzen at launch, only bested by the Ryzen 9 7950X with 4 more cores.

The performance of the R9 7900X is clearly better than the old Ryzen 9 5900X thanks to the improved architecture and modern 5nm process. Compared to Intels Raptor Lake Core i9-13700K the single-core performance is slightly lower and the multi-core performance slightly faster. The gaming performance is a bit lower, and is on average only on par with the Core i5-13600K and also lower than the old Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

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.
