AMD Zen 4 line-up of processors is set to release later this week, and the Ryzen 7000 processors are shaping up to be quite exciting. With a September 27 release date, the review embargo period is nearly over (26th Sep).

Now, foreign media site sisoftware published benchmarks for the upcoming Ryzen 5 7600x and paints an excellent picture of the future of AMD’s Zen 4 (Raphael) line-up.

As can be seen below in the performance tests, the Ryzen 5 7600X is about 48% faster than Ryzen 5 5600X, but it also has a much higher power consumption.

The Ryzen 5 5600X was considered a very efficient processor when it was released. But AMD seems to be taking a different route this time, sacrificing efficiency for maximum performance.

Ryzen 5 7600X has a 61% higher power consumption than its predecessor consuming around 142W at max load compared with 88W of Ryzen 5 5600x.
