AMD Ryzen 9050 Series Strix Point ES Processor Gets Tested on Geekbench

Published by

A new entry for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9050 series "Strix Point" ES processor was recently spotted on Geekbench. Identified by the code 100-000000994-14_N, this engineering sample (ES) is part of AMD's unreleased processor lineup, Family 26 Model 32. The sample registered a base frequency of 1.4 GHz, featuring 12 cores and 12 threads. Another variant clocked at 2.0 GHz appeared as part of a dual-processor setup, though it's unclear if this configuration was due to an error in Geekbench's detection or if certain features like hyper-threading were disabled in this engineering sample.

The performance metrics for these engineering samples are preliminary; however, the 1.4 GHz variant achieved a noteworthy multi-core score of 8016 points on Geekbench. To provide context, the Ryzen 9 7940HS, which operates between 4.0 GHz and 5.2 GHz with 8 cores and 16 threads, typically scores approximately 1995 in single-core and 11838 in multi-core tests.

AMD plans to release the full Ryzen 9050 series, including various models such as Strix Point and Strix Halo, by the end of this year. The 9050 series will expand across different segments including mobile and desktop platforms, with configurations varying from 12 to 16 cores and incorporating AMD's next-generation Zen5 architecture. Integrated graphics options range from 2 to 40 compute units across the series, indicating a significant variation in graphics capabilities depending on the specific model.
