New AMD Ryzen 9000 (Zen 5) CPU Leak: runs 5.8 GHz and 19% Faster Than 7950X

Published by

Recent leaks have revealed the advanced capabilities of AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9000 desktop processors, based on the Zen 5 microarchitecture, demonstrating significant performance enhancements. Specifically, an engineering sample with the OPN code "100-0000001290" has surfaced, indicating a peak boost frequency of 5.80 GHz, which is a notable 100 MHz increase over its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 7950X. This higher clock speed contributes to an impressive 19% increase in single-threaded performance compared to the Zen 4 architecture. The processor, part of the Granite Ridge lineup for the Socket AM5 platform, has yet to have its core count confirmed, though the focus of this leak is on its single-threaded capabilities. Enhancements in the processor's design include a restructured Infinity Fabric, which is essential for improving communication between the Compute Die (CCD) and the I/O Die (IOD), and an upgraded Integrated Memory Controller (IMC), which are likely contributors to the observed performance gains.

Preliminary benchmarks in CPU-Z show the Ryzen 9000 achieving a score of 910 points, surpassing the Ryzen 9 7950X's average of 767 points. This data positions the Ryzen 9000 near the performance levels of the Intel Core i9-14900K, which scores 908 points in similar tests but requires a higher boost frequency of 6.00 GHz to achieve this. 


Reports suggest that the new Zen 5 CPUs will be available in multiple core configurations, potentially including 16, 12, 8, and 6-core models. Expected improvements in Instructions Per Cycle (IPC) are estimated at around 10%, with specific workload enhancements possibly reaching up to 40%, indicating significant advancements in both general and gaming performance over the previous generation.


The thermal design power (TDP) of the Ryzen 9000 sample is recorded at 170 watts, suggesting that this version of the processor could be either a 12-core or 16-core model, although the exact core count remains unspecified in the leak.
