AMD Ryzen 7000 engineering samples spotted on benchmark database

With AMD Zen 4 processors planned to come out later this year, it’s reasonable to expect the chipmaker has already begun making engineering samples. Two of those samples have now been spotted in the BOINC database, giving the first benchmark results of the upcoming processors.

The entries were spotted by @Benchleaks, which shows an 8-core, 16-thread engineering sample and another one with 16x cores and 32x threads. Both have similar codenames, with the only difference being the middle number portion ending in “6” on the 8-core chip, while the 16-core one ends with “5” (100-000000666-21_N vs 100-000000665-21_N).

Looking at the name with no prior knowledge doesn’t tell us these are Ryzen 7000 chips. Still, as noted by Benchleaks, CPUID identifies these codenames as Raphael engineering samples, aka Zen 4 desktop processors or Ryzen 7000. In addition, the Cache data of the entry shows the amount of L2 per core of the CPU, showing each one on these samples has 1024KB of cache. That’s twice what you’ll find in Zen 3-based chips.

AMD recently announced Zen 4-based processors are scheduled to release later this year, in H2 2022.

KitGuru says: There is still a good chunk of 2022 to get through before these processors launch, but we should see updated engineering samples throughout the year.
