AMD Ryzen 9900X Surpasses 14900KS in Geekbench 6 Test

kyojuro 7/10/2024

AMD's newly launched Ryzen 9 9900X 12-core desktop CPU has delivered impressive results in Geekbench benchmarks, showing a 16% improvement in single-core performance over its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 7900X, and even outperforming the Intel Core i9-14900KS in these tests.


The Ryzen 9 9900X, identified by its model number "100-000000662," boasts 12 cores and 24 threads. It operates at a base clock frequency of 4.4 GHz, with the capability to boost up to 5.6 GHz, and features 76 MB of cache. Remarkably, it achieves this with a power consumption of just 120W, significantly lower than the Ryzen 9 7900X's 170W.

Although the Ryzen 9 9900X maintains the same Rated Workload Index (RWI) as the 7900X, it has a 300 MHz lower base frequency, aligning with its lower 120W power limit. Despite this, its 12-core architecture excels in multi-threaded performance. Below is a comparison of the Thermal Design Power (TDP) between the Ryzen 9 9900X and its predecessor:


In the benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 9900X was evaluated using an ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Gene motherboard equipped with 32GB of DDR5 RAM, reaching speeds above 5.6 GHz. In the single-core test, the Ryzen 9 9900X scored 3,401 points, while in the multi-core test, it achieved 19,560 points. For comparison, the Intel Core i9-14900KS scored approximately 3,250 points in the single-core test and nearly 20,500 points in the multi-core test.

Additionally, Geekbench results indicate a 16% improvement in single-core and an 11% improvement in multi-core performance for the Ryzen 9 9900X compared to the Ryzen 9 7900X. However, it's important to note that these Intel Core i9 tests were run under the "Intel Benchmark Default" setting, which can lower the chip's performance by up to 15% to enhance stability.

The data highlights the robust single-core performance advantages of the Zen 5 CPUs. While Geekbench is a general benchmark, the results are still highly informative. According to AMD, Geekbench effectively showcases the Zen 5's IPC improvements, boasting up to a 19% increase compared to Zen 4.

Furthermore, performance tests in Cinebench R23 indicate that the Ryzen 9 9900X also excels in multi-threaded tasks. (Note: R23 test results are based on engineering samples, whereas the latest Geekbench results are from retail chips.)


The AMD Ryzen 9 9900X 12-core CPU has proven its exceptional performance in both Geekbench and Cinebench benchmarks. It will be available on the AM5 platform later this month, and the anticipation is high.
