We all are waiting for the upcoming release of AMD Ryzen on 2nd march. On the other hand, Intel has leaked some information about its new design of CPU, Kabylake. The number of cores which kabylake is offering and the threads with different other specs making a lot of unrest in the consumers who don’t know whether the number of cores or the core frequency is the factor that can ensure better gaming performance of their PC.
To assess this, we are presenting the results of a comparison made after running different CPUs. The test included only one type of graphic card which is Titan X Pascal, which was performed keeping the other factors at the most standard level to make sure the performance score is solely based on the CPU performance.
Also, the test included only two standards of resolution that are 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720. To run the comparison test, several games were played and the performance score was recorded. These games included Anno 2205, Ashes of the Singularity (DX12), Gears of War 4, Project Cars, Watchdogs 2 etc. The results of performance tests are presented here:
The FPS performance for both AMD and Intel is presented, which shows that the core count is apparently more significant in CPU performance. The results shown at the top indicates 6900K and 6950X Intel CPU as exceptional cases.
The Kabylake is about 22 percent better than the Haswell with a better clocking speed. Rumors claim that the Intel’s Kabylake core i7 7700K is going to affect a lot of the Ryzen’s demand. But, in reality, Kabylake 7700K is not a big threat for Ryzen. The performance data shows clearly that core count has relatively more significance but the combination of the two still matters a lot.
