According to Twitter user @BenchLeaks, we now have our first Geekbench 5 score for AMD’s upcoming 65W Ryzen 7 5700X 8 core CPU. Despite the 40W TDP reduction, single-core and multi-core scores are within 2% of AMD’s more power-hungry 5800X, indicating that the 5700X has outstanding power efficiency if these numbers are accurate. Once it arrives, the 5700X should be in our Best CPUs for Gaming list.
Moreover, the pricing appears pretty fine with an MSRP of $299. It is the same as that of Ryzen 5 5600X. However, it is worth mentioning that 5600X’s pricing has dropped in the past year. Nowadays, it is consistently in the sub-$250 bracket. So, its official MSRP doesn’t mean much anymore.

Ryzen 7 5700X Clock speeds are less than 5800X
Clock speeds for the 5700X are lower than the 5800X to account for the considerable drop in TDP, but not by much. The base frequency of the 5700X took the biggest hit, dropping 400MHz from the 5800X to 3.4GHz. The boost frequency on the 5700X, however, scarcely changed at all, with a high boost frequency of 4.6GHz, just 100MHz lower than 5800X.
According to Geekbench 5, the 5700X looks to be at the higher boost frequencies of its frequency curve, with a performance gap of less than 2% when compared to the 5800X. In single-threaded tests, the 5700X received 1645 points, and in multi-threaded tests, it received 10196 points. The single-threaded result on Geekbench 5 5800X is 1671 points, while the multi-threaded result is 10338 points.
