However, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su dug a little deeper into the Ryzen 9 7950X and listed its performance specifically compared to the competing flagship, the Intel Core i9-12900K. Lisa also gave us a little rundown of the Ryzen 5 7600X’s performance in F1 2022.

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, during the “Together We Advance PCs” event, compared the performance of the Ryzen 9 7950X to that of the Intel Core i9-12900K. The two flagships faced each other in eight applications.

Benchmarks were held across four games and four “creator” oriented shows, these were DOTA2, SOTTR, borderlands 3Y CS: GO. Creator-focused programs consisted of ray v, Blender, Cinema bench R23Y POV Lightning.

Ryzen 9 7950X vs. 12900K Gaming Performance

Here are the results of the comparison with the 12900K.

Generational gaming performance

  • DOTA2+ 23% increase
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider + 14% increase
  • Borderlands 3 = TIE
  • CS:GO- 1% decrease

Generational performance of the creator

  • V+ Ray Processing 62%% increase
  • Blender Processing + 36% increase
  • Cinebench R23 nT+ 41% increase
  • POV Ray + 41% increase

As you can see, the Ryzen 9 7950X puts those cores to good use in multi-threaded “creator-facing” tasks. But then again, AMD has always had the upper hand in multi-threading performance.

What is interesting to note is the glaring increase in single core performance that gives an advantage in some games. DOTA2 is a relatively easy game to run on most systems, but a 23% performance increase it’s still a considerably big performance boost no matter what.
