It 45% performance for ~45% more power....I already corrected you on this at least once before. The 7950X gets a multi-application average benefit of 45% better multithreaded performance than its predecessor, while the 7600X is about 35% faster than its predecessor. These are pretty astonishing single-generation improvements, for CPUs with the same core/thread count.
(87W for the 5950x 125W for the 7950x stock)
It's not an improvement in performance, it's just the same performance overclocked to the max.
Hey, if everybody else can use efficiency as an argument then so can I.
At least intel gets much more increased performance per more power.
Both 12 and 13 gen max out at around 300W and 13 gen is much faster in some things.
That shouldn't be the reason to dismiss it, 7z uses an in-build benchmark that uses a 32Mb set (changeable in the menu) of make-believe data that is not on any storage and applies their algorithm on it,The only THG benchmark where DDR5 pulls way ahead is 7Zip decompression, which I dismiss as completely irrelevant due to how rarely people decompress files large enough to take any meaningful time.
this is why ryzen was so far ahead in that test for so long, it had much larger caches that could hold all of that data at once making things much faster.
Benches with winrar are much closer to reality because they have to use actual files on a disk to do their tests with, but you can't bother benchmarkers with doing their job these days.
Also de-compression, on real files at least, is always single threaded.
