Ryzen R7 1800x AMD new flagship 8 core 16 thread CPU which has 3.6 ghz base clock and 4.0 ghz boost clock and it runs around 3.7 ghz with all 16 threads and around 4.1 ghz with one single thread. That is due to the new technology that is XFR. The R7 1700 has a three ghz base block and 3.7 ghz single core turbo and what’s more it also has XFR. However, it has only half XFR turbo compared to the 1800x.
Ryzen has new design and there are some differences for example 213 square millimeter CPU, we can clearly see two core complexes. Which communicates with each other through AMD data fabric and it’s all new.
It seems to work well with extra cores clock speed and looking at the scores the R7 1800x is ahead from both the i7 6900k and i7 7700k.
To 7 zip compression benchmark, know that there are 2 7 zio benchmarks (compression and decompression). Obviously when you are compressing a zip file you are grabbing a bunch of files. 6900k has pretty big lead over both Ryzen CPU’s. But the 6800k not being that far away from the 1700. We can see that this benchmarks is very well threaded with the i5 especially being pretty far behind.
Looking at the decompression that has of course opening archives or unzipping the R7 1800x is very good here. 10% ahead a million of instructions per second. Now that’s what I call a good trade-off. As most of we would be decompressing archives rather than compressing.
Moving on to Cinebench R15 Single thread, now a single thread performance here is simply a clock speed multiplied by IPC. And then this case that R7 1800x is running at 4.1ghz thanks to XFR good as the 6900k is running at 4 ghz with turbo boost 3.0. The i7 7700k though with it’s blazing fast 4.5 ghz single core turbo and of course Skylake IPC is well ahead here. The old Sandy Bridge i5 still hanging in there as well.
Moving over to Cinebench R15 multi thread we see something very very interesting. Presumably with 8 cores and 8 threads. The R7 1800x and i7 6900k should have had similar scores but an actual fact the 1800x is well ahead now again by around 10%. And one of the reasons is AMD superior multi threading, which is really quite something when you think about. AMD has overtaken them with their very first effort. What is really noticeable that how close the 1700 gets to the 6900k.
