The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is the top of the line AMD CPU that has 8 cores and 16 threads. New SiSoft Sandra benchmarks of the CPU show how it stacks up against the big boys from Intel, the i7 6900K and i7 5960X.
Looking at the numbers I have to say that the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is impressive even though it may have lower frequency there is a lot of potential due to more cores.
As AMD Ryzen has made its ways to reviews it was just a matter of time before some performance numbers and benchmarks made their way to the internet. Here we will be looking at three benchmarks, Processor Multi-Media, Processor Cryptography (High Security) and Processor Multi-Core Efficiency.
Talking about the Processor Multi-Media test we see that the Ryzen 1800X manages 461.13Mpix/s which is a bit more than the little brother 1700 at 435Mpix/s. These are strong numbers and they show the difference in architecture between AMD Zen and Intel Kaby Lake.
Moving on top Processor Cryptography (High Security), the 1800X scored 14.88GB/s which is more than the 12.22GB/s and 11.58GB/s of the i7 6900K and i7 5960X respectively. This modern architecture is something that will be keeping Intel on its feet whether or not the company chooses to accept that Ryzen is a threat.
The last test is the Processor Multi-Core Efficiency, AMD Ryzen 7 1800X scores 45.82GB/s. Intel CPUs do perform better here but these are synthetic benchmarks and we cannot see what these numbers will mean in the real world.
These benchmarks are good guesses but that is all. We will need to check out Ryzen hands one to come to a final verdict of whether or not Ryzen is better than Intel CPUs or not. What we have seen from demos and leaks it is likely that AMD Ryzen has the upper hand.
Let us know what you think about the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X and these performance numbers.
