Assuming that these scores were not faked, the flagship X3D processor was tested using Geekbench 5 so it is to be expected that different scores will eventually get posted using the newer version, Geekbench 6, that Brent Justice covered earlier this week. The 7950X3D did a decent job in the single-core test coming in at just 2% slower, 2157, than its non-X3D counterpart that scored 2191. However, The gap widened a bit more in the multi-core tests when the 7950 pulled ahead by 5% at 23081 vs the 7950X3D's 21841.

Isn't this expected as the boost clocks on X3D aren't as high? That's how it was with the 5800X3D as well. The real benefit to X3D is in games that utilize the cache.
My thoughts here exactly.

What was surprising is that it did boost all the way to 5.68 GHz and the 7950X is rated at 5.7 GHz so all things considered, it nearly matched the 7950X.
