The Ryzen 9 9950X on Geekbench!


After an initial overview of the Ryzen 9 9950X’s performance in Blender, we now turn to the Geekbench 6 readings. The processor has been tested without power consumption limits and without an active PBO profile.

Ryzen 9 9950X: solid in single-threaded mode, dubious in multi-threaded mode!

Performance was measured with a processor mounted on an AM5 motherboard, an ASUS Crosshair X670E Hero, coupled with 32 GB dual-channel RAM.

The results are as follows: 3359 pts in single-core, 20,550 in multi-core. While the ST score is more than convincing, placing it above the Core i9 14900K and i9 14900KS, the MT score is dubious. At 20,550, the processor achieves a score only 4% higher than that of a 9900X, while boasting 33% more cores… Compared with the current generation, these results put the 9950X 14% ahead of the 7950X in ST and 7% ahead in MT. As it stands, the CPU trails the 14900K by a narrow margin, while the 14900KS dominates AMD’s 16-core model.

As a reminder, Ryzen 9000s are due to arrive in stores this month. As for the 9950X, we’re talking about a 16c/32t CPU running at up to 5.7 GHz. The CPU features 64 MB of L3 cache and 16 MB of L2, while offering a TDP of 170W and a PPT of 230W.
