You seem to be shocked, SHOCKED I TELL YOU, about the performance of the 7950X.
The only way you can be shocked is if in the previous three years you have been either too incompetent or too lazy to actually learn how to configure Ryzen 3rd/4th Gen CPUs.
You see, some of us - well me - actually put in the effort to find out how Ryzen 3rd/4th Gen works and then put out a guide about how to optimally configure ANY Ryzen 3rd/4th Gen CPU on ANY motherboard optimally within about five minutes - including the BIOS.
The thing is you geniuses, I predicted the performance of the 7950X MONTHS ago and to prove it, here is something I talked about to a friend of mine on Discord on the 13th of June 2022 (I had worked it out before that, but that is the first time I had written it).
If you want to dispute the veracity of my statement or the time I made it, I do have a screenshot that I cannot post here, but can easily make available to you.
So here is the evidence for my Svengali-like prescience or as I put it:
To point four, because I have had two spine operations and suffer from spinal arthritis, I have to keep the temperature of my room at 30 degrees Celsius - which is at least ten degrees Celsius higher than anyone else tests their CPUs at, so the 75 Degrees Celsius temp has to be considered with that in mind. Remember I am extrapolating from my experience with my 3600X, then 3950X and then 5950X in my own environment.
So what I can deduce from your being shocked, SHOCKED I TELL YOU, with regard to the performance of the 7950X you have seen, is that:
a) You guys can't do simple arithmetic.
b) You guys haven't bothered your backsides in three years to find out anything about Ryzen CPUs.
My guide to configuring 3rd/4th Gen Ryzen CPUs on any motherboard has been public for a long time now. I originally published it on AMD's site and have refined it as my experience with different environments informed me, to the latest version that I published here:
Definitive Guide to Configuring 3rd/4th Gen Ryzen CPUs on any Ryzen Motherboard
You might want to just boot up some random Ryzen 3rd or 4th Gen system you have lying about, apply my guide, and see just how much performance you scrubs have been missing out on for over three years.
