We recently saw the gaming power of AMD Ryzen 1800X against Intel i7 6900k. But what about AMD’s 1800X younger brother 1700X. Well some gaming benchmarks were leaked on the internet by a Chinese reviewer. Comparing the gaming performance of Ryzen 1700X vs Intel i7 6800k, which is Intel’s 6 core processor.
If you don’t know AMD Ryzen 1700X has 8 cores and 16 threads with an MSRP of $399. While Intel i7 6800k has 6 cores and 12 threads with an MSRP of $420. Both the processors were tested on a list of 13 games. Where both the FPS produced and power consumed by both the processors were also recorded.
The system used for the benchmarking of 13 games included:
- Intel i7 6800k / AMD Ryzen 1700X
- 16 GB RAM
- AMD RX 480
As you can see from the chart. AMD Ryzen 1700X is beating its rival, the Intel i7 6800K in most of the games. If these benchmarks are to be true. Then AMD is really offering a better solution compared to its rival Intel. Aside from that AMD owners would also gain 2 extra cores and 4 extra threads. For a price lower than what Intel is offering.
But before making your decision. We would advise everyone to just wait for two more days. As that is the day of official launch of AMD Ryzen in the market. A lot of Youtuber’s are also waiting for 2nd of March to launch actual benchmark of AMD Ryzen against Intel. Till then take all these leaked benchmarks with a grain of salt.
Intel is also scared from all the hype that is build up around Ryzen. And to challenge Ryzen the blue team have also reduced prices on their new 7th gen Intel processors. What we have never seen Intel do before. Let’s see what the results really are on 2nd of March, 2017.
