AMD Ryzen 9 9900X lags behind Intel’s Core i7-14700K in leaked performance tests.

Share it

Recent performance tests have revealed that AMD’s Ryzen 9 9900X is lagging behind Intel’s Core i7-14700K in terms of overall performance. While the Ryzen 9000 processors are showing promise as powerful gaming chips, they seem to be falling short in multi-threaded tasks. A leak from Cinebench R23 indicated that even with Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) enabled, the Ryzen 9 9900X couldn’t match up to the Core i7-14700K. A Geekbench 6 result further confirms this observation, with the Ryzen 9 9900X scoring 3401 and 19756 points in the single and multi-core benchmarks on an ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR X670E GENE motherboard with 32 GB of DDR5 memory.

Approximate scores

Although the Zen 5 CPU demonstrates exceptional single-core performance, surpassing the Intel Core i9-14900K by 10% and the earlier Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors by 10-15%, its multi-core performance lags behind. While it promises excellent gaming performance and quick response times for everyday workloads, the lower multi-core score affects its content creation capabilities.

In the multi-core performance category with around 20K points, the Ryzen 9 9900X falls behind the Core i7-14700K and only manages to edge past the Ryzen 9 7900X by a mere 5%. It’s worth noting that these tests may involve pre-release engineering samples, and the final retail versions could potentially offer improved performance. Given the recent issues surrounding Intel’s Core i9-13900K, many are cautious and leaning towards AMD’s offerings.


Summing it up, the Ryzen 9 7950X outperforms the 9900X by 12%, while the Core i9-14900K maintains a 5% lead over it. Unless there are significant performance improvements in the final retail units, there may be limited appeal for content creators to opt for Intel’s Granite Ridge processors.
