Ryzen 5 2600X & Ryzen 7 2700X Geekbench Multi-Core 18% Higher Than Last Gen

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X gaming benches

The Ryzen 7 2700X Geekbench results have leaked online, showing the relative performance of the initial top processor in the second-gen AMD Ryzen range. The results show a decent performance boost over the last generation, even matching the finest Intel Coffee Lake chips.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Geekbench benchmarks Leaked – 18% Faster vs Ryzen 7 1700X, 13% Faster vs 1800X

The Geekbench listing is dated just a few days ago now. It shows the eight-core, 16-thread CPU tested in an X370 motherboard, not one of the new X470 variants that are designed specifically for the Ryzen 2000 series chips.

Further, the Ryzen 7 2700X Geekbench shows the processor with a base frequency of 3.7GHz. It will have a statndard boost clock of 4.1GHz, but a previous leak indicates speeds as high as 4.35GHz. This could potentially be through AMD’s advanced XFR 2.0 tech that would be tied in with the 400-series chipset.

Moving to benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 2700X reaches a single-core Geekbench result of 4,746. It scores 24,772 points on multi-core, which is some way behind the Intel Core i7-8700K but it does outperform the Core i7-8700’s 22,967. Especially, the performance gains over the first generation Ryzen processors are significant.

We’re looking at a hefty 18% increase compared with the direct predecessor, the Ryzen 7 1700X. The chip is even 13% faster than the current flagship Ryzen 7 1800X. That’s a serious gain considering the fact that the second-gen Ryzen chips are based on the refreshed Zen+ architecture using the improved 12nm process node.

We also have Geekbench results for AMD’s six-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 2600X, and they are impressive too. The new chip offers a 19% benchmark improvement over the 1600X while running on an older X370 motherboard.

The benchmark shows the 2600X featuring the same base clock as the 1600X. This means the gains are coming at their relative highest speeds, with the XFR 2 and Precision Boost 2 into play. To be clear, that is all before any extra X470 overclocking.

Based on these leaks, things are looking really good for the upcoming Ryzen processors and we can’t wait to see how they perform when they hit the shelves next month. Are you also excited about the Ryzen 2 launch? Let us know in the comments below.
