The new AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor was tested inside of a new ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme motherboard, with 32GB of DDR5-6000 memory installed. AMD's new Ryzen 9 7950X processor reached a maximum boost frequency of 5759MHz (5.75GHz) which is just a little bit faster than the advertised 5.7GHz max frequency on the Ryzen 9 7950X.

There's 16 cores and 32 threads of Zen 4-powered CPU power inside of the Ryzen 9 7950X, which is the same core and thread count as the Zen 3-powered Ryzen 9 5950X that it replaces. Intel fights at this level with its Alder Lake-powered Core i9-12900K with 16 cores and 24 threads, while the new Raptor Lake-based Core i9-13900K will feature 24 cores and 32 threads.
