AMD is gearing up to release the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” processors based on the Zen 4 architecture this year. The rumored lineup includes a 16-core 32-thread Ryzen 9 7950X, a 12-core 24-thread Ryzen 9 7900X, an 8-core 16-thread Ryzen 7 7800X, and a 6-core 12-thread Ryzen 5 7600X. AMD has officially revealed an estimated 8% IPC increase for Zen 4 including a >15% single-threaded performance uplift for more than 35% overall improvement compared to Zen 3. These are tall claims, but if the performance delivered by a recent AMD entry into the Basemark database is anything to go by, Team Red is looking ready to fulfill its promises.

According to Basemark testing, the rumoured Zen 4 AMD Ryzen 5 7600X is up to 11% quicker than the extremely powerful Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5950X. As with the Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 processors, the Ryzen 7000 series may be released in stages.

According to rumours, AMD will introduce its Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs in September. According to the company, Zen 4 will perform significantly better than Zen 3. It has been discovered on Basemark that an AMD Raphael engineering sample, probably the Ryzen 5 7600X, is fast enough to surpass the Ryzen 9 5950X.


  • In the Basemark GPU 1.2 with the “High” preset and using OpenGL 4.5, the alleged Ryzen 5 7600X scored 10526 points with minimum, maximum, and average FPS numbers coming in at 39.52, 163.12, and 105.27 respectively. Using Vulkan, the test scores increased to 93.55 (min FPS), 182.45 (max FPS), and 120.76 (average FPS).

  • Twitter user @TUM_APISAK has found a 6-core AMD Ryzen engineering sample listed in the Basemark database. Running at 4.4 GHz, the chip was installed in a Gigabyte X670E AORUS MASTER motherboard. Since the Gigabyte X670E AORUS MASTER is an AM5 board, the CPU in question appears to be a Zen 4 Raphael Ryzen 5 7600X. Finally, the processor ran alongside an NVIDIA RTX A4000 workstation GPU.

To understand the performance of the Ryzen 5 7600X ES better, @harukaze5719 plotted the OpenGL 4.5 performance of the chip against the Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5950X. Surprisingly, the Zen 4 CPU has a 10.2% lead in max FPS, a 9.5% lead in average FPS, and an 11.13% uplift in min FPS. This becomes even more impressive when we consider that the Zen 4 chip was an engineering sample, so it was probably not running at its full potential.
