How Does AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Perform With Half The Threads And Cores? Benchmarked Against Intel 4 Core i7 7700K

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X has 8 cores and 16 threads but due to its pricing it is often compared to the 7700K. Some people think that this is not a fair deal as the Intel CPU has half the cores and half the threads.

What if that was changed and both had the same number of cores and threads? That would be very interesting indeed. Here are some results that show just that.

4 Core, 8 Thread AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Benchmarks

For this benchmark 4 cores and 8 threads of the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X have been disabled so that it is on par with the Intel i7-77ooK. The following are the benchmarks:

CINEBENCH R15

Here AMD Ryzen 7 1800X takes the lead in both single threaded performance and multi-threaded workloads. But that is not the end of the story. This benchmark may favor the AMD CPU but there are more to come.

3DMARK Fire Strike DX 11

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

Here we can see that the AMD CPU lags behind in all the scores except for the physics score. This goes to show that in same tests the AMD CPU will perform marginally better but the same goes for the Intel 7700K as well.

GeekBench 4

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

GeekBench scores for the AMD CPU are lower as compared to the Intel counterpart. This is another test where the Intel CPU comes out on top but looking at the price you can say that difference is not all that great. Plus the AMD CPU is not running at full capacity here.

RealBench 2.44

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

Here we can see that the AMD CPU performs better when it comes to image editing but the Intel CPU performs better when encoding. Both are tied when it comes to OpenCL. The Intel CPU also performs better when heavy multitasking.

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, Intel 7700K Gaming Benchmarks

Here we are going to look at how well the handicapped AMD Ryzen 7 1800X performs in games against the Intel 7700K.

Battlefield 1

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

The AMD CPU takes a hit when it comes to average FPS but when it comes to battlefield 1 the minimum and maximum FPS are very close to each other comparing both these CPUs.

FarCry Primal

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

Here we see the Intel CPU pull ahead of the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X by a far margin.

GTA V

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

There is very little difference in performance when testing these two CPUs side by side in GTAV.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

Testing Rise of the Tombraider we see that the AMD Ryzen CPU lags behind a bit when it comes to Geothermal Valley and overall scores. Other than that there is little difference between the two CPUs.

The Division

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

The AMD Ryzen CPU is only a few frames behind the Intel counterpart when testing these CPUs in The Division.

The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X performs well against the 7700K considering that it has half the cores and threads disabled.

Let us know what you think about these benchmarks.
