Intel Core i7-13700K bests the Ryzen 7 7700X in leaked benchmarks. The new processors no doubt have a pretty impressive score, but competition is however fierce.
Intel Core i7-13700K Bests the Ryzen 7 7700X in Leaked Benchmarks
The much anticipated upcoming ‘Zen 4’ Ryzen 7 7700X CPU from AMD has been leaked yet again with popular processor leaker extreme player now shifting from his usual focus on Intel chips in a bid to reveal the performance of the 7700X in Cinebench R20 which is a popular benchmarking software.
The leak, which was posted on BiliBili, which is a Chinese video hosting site shows the Ryzen 7 7700X scoring single-core and multi-core scores of 773 and 7,701 respectively. And on the surface, these are very good results; in contrast to the excellent Ryzen 7 5800X, we’re looking at a 25% step up in performance, which AMD is mostly proud of.
The 7700X Isn’t the Only Chip That Is Coming To the Market
However, the 7700X isn’t the only chip that is coming to the market that has seen leaks. Intel’s i7-13700K, which will be the 7700X’s direct competitor once both are released previously was revealed to have scored a whopping 814 and 11,243 in Cinebench R20’s single- and multi-core tests, which then sees it blow its Ryzen rival so far out of the water that AMD is now going need a towel.
The i7-13700K on paper has an incredible performance and this will make it look like AMD is in serious trouble. There is however a lot more that needs to be considered here just before we write off the Ryzen 7000 series as a deadbeat. This is because after all, the battle on who will be crowned the best processor will not be decided by just a single benchmark.
The Price Is Going To Be Playing a Big Factor For Starters
The price for starters here is going to be playing a very huge factor. AMD has positioned itself historically as the most wallet-friendly alternative to its Intel counterparts. That being said, there is nothing to show that this next generation will be seeing any deviation from that very trend.
