Benchmarks shown by AMD sure were impressive, but what about benchmarks from people outside the red team. Well Dino PC from OCUK just posted a video on their Youtube channel, bench-marking, the Ryzen 7 1700 with Intel’s, top of the line i7 7700K. Now the video is no longer there for some reason, but we do have some pictures to share.
Both the processors were tested on the same setup. In order to make it a fair battle. Where the set up included the following hardware:
- Intel i7 7700K / AMD RYZEN 7 1700 (Processor)
- Gigabyte Z270 Ultra Gaming X / ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero (Motherboard)
- NVIDIA GTX 1080
- Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz DDR4 (RAM)
- Corsair 1000W RMX PSU (Power Supply)
- Corsair H115i AIO Cooler (CPU Cooler)
- Samsung 250GB 850 EVO (Storage)
The first benchmark was done on a game that favors, CPU more than the GPU. Here as you can see that Intel, being the chip with higher frequency easily beats the Ryzen 7 1700, in both stock and overclocked scenarios. Do keep in mind that the Ryzen CPU has not been manually overclocked to its limits. Like Intel was and was running at a boost clock of 3.7 GHz Compared to Intel. Where Intel can achieve a stable overclock of 5 GHz with adequate cooling.
In the next benchmark, both the CPU’s were tested on Cinebench. In this benchmark Intel was running at its stock 4.2 GHz while Ryzen was running at 3.4 GHz. Making Intel win in a single core score. But when you look at multi core score. Ryzen completely dominates, all its Intel rivals. Do keep in mind that Ryzen is also running at a lower clock speed compared to Intel. Reason why it lost in single core performance.
The benchmarks AMD showed were true after all. As the chips is delivering what it was promised to. Games in future are also going to require more cores compared to four cores present on the Intel. Though when that time arrives, it would be AMD Ryzen owners, that take the most advantage out of it.
