The AMD Ryzen launch is only days away and I know you are as excited about the launch as I am....
How Fast AMD Ryzen is Against Intel Processors? There is a Theoretical Answer Based On Bench-marking
Videocardz came with limited data figures of AMD Ryzen family CPUs and gave theoretical bench-marking comparison between Ryzen and top notch Intel processors. The results are based on cores, threads, base clock, turbo clock, TDP, and Chinese Price of the CPU alone.
The data is a compilation of 3D bench-marking and 3D Mark tests from tomsHARDWARE. Regardless, it is interesting to see the power of Ryzen CPUs plotted against Intel processors.
Even though the top tier Intel processor Core i7 6950X costs lot more than Ryzen 7 1800X, yet, base clock of Ryzen CPU is considerably more than Intel. Additionally, the processor Ryzen 7 1800X is able to achieve extra 600MHz from Core i7 6950X with less number of cores and threads. Core i7 6950X has 10 cores and 20 threads, while Ryzen 7 1800X has 8 cores and 16 threads. Regardless of packing extra power in AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, it has lower TDP from Intel’s Core i7 6950X processor.
This is single comparison between top tier processors of Intel and AMD Ryzen processors. This alone sufficiently tells that how much sophisticated is the architecture of AMD Ryzen family.
Similarly, if you compare other AMD Ryzen processors as such: Ryzen 7 1700X with Core i7 6900K, you will notice Ryzen processor to be much advanced than Intel’s processor.
However, this is worth noting that AMD Ryzen data figures and bench-marking result comparisons are based on theoretical data. It is subjected to change when Ryzen CPUs are launched officially on 2nd March 2017 and that real bench-marking results may differ than current figures.
