The American multinational semiconductor company, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is ostensibly set to reveal the next generation of Ryzen processors based on the Zen 4 architecture at the upcoming CES 2022.
AMD’s Zen 4 processors are shaping up to be the company’s first substantial overhaul since the launch of the original Ryzen chips. However, the Geekbench benchmark test results of AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 processor products were disclosed today by the whistleblower @davideneco25320.
According to the whistleblower, the Zen 4 processor has a single-core running score of 24723, putting it at the top of the heap right away.
The geekbench classified AMD Zen 4 as “AMD Ryzen 5 4500U” in the image, but the running points show that AMD Zen 4’s performance is far higher than the 4500U single-core 1100 and multi-core 4500.
As a result, “AMD Ryzen 5 4500U” is most likely a Geekbench identification error. Even without taking into account the difficulty of chip recognition, this finding is incorrect.
The greatest single-core Geekbench score in this AMD Zen 4 performance is 2913 points from the i9-12900K, which is nearly 8.5 times higher than the inflated score of AMD Zen 4 24723 points.
However, when compared to the inflated single-core score, AMD Zen 4’s multi-core score is just 5588 points, which is not only a significant difference from the single-core score but also less than half of the current 12000 points from the Ryzen 7 5800X, which can be considered complete. There is no reference value.
Some argue that AMD’s “outrageous” single-core performance is due to a new technology that allows it to combine all available cores for calculations in a virtual environment, exaggerating the results.
While some claim that the current AMD Zen 4 running scores simply test scores in the development stage and have no genuine reference value. The actual results of this processor can be validly ascertained when the product is officially unveiled before a conclusion can be reached and probably around the third quarter of 2022 at the CES, as reported.
