Some benchmark for Intel’s new Core X-series CPU’s have been leak. The two processors from Intel Core X-series with the two Ryzen CPU’s.
Benchmark Comparison between Intel Core i7-7800X and AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
First up is the i7 7800X versus Ryzen 5 1600X, both are 6 core 12 thread CPU’s. Core i7 7800X in Single-thread did 6134 versus the Ryzen 5 1600X which did 4204. In Multi-thread Intel i7 7800X did 37344 versus the Ryzen 5 1600X which did 25556. With the Ryzen 5 Overclock you get 5956 for Single-thread versus the 36061 for Multiple-thread. Now that overclock is well over or close to 5.4 ghz.
Benchmark Comparison between Intel Core i7-7820X and AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
Moving on to the 7820X versus the Ryzen 7 1800X both are 8 core, the 7820X did 6034 in Single-thread and 47032 in Multi-thread. The Ryzen 1800X did 4816 in Single-thread and 36189 in Multi-thread and that’s overclock to 4.1 ghz. The 1800X in stock meaning not overclocked did 4387 in Single-thread and 34637 in Multi-thread.
AMD will get there..
The results look bad for AMD and it’s understandable. Even overclocked Ryzen is attached lower than the Intel CPU. Intel has the IPC advantage and the thermal headroom to go with that. Intel’s core i7 series was first introduced in 2008. 9 years versus 4 months since the first Ryzen CPU so, of course Intel has advantage in refinement and all that stuff.
On the other hand AMD is barely getting out their first generation of CPU’s so, AMD has a lot of improvements to do with IPC and that will come with more further iterations of the Ryzen for every single generation.
There will be a point which will be called Singularity meaning with more generations of Ryzen down the line, it might not happen in the next two to three Ryzen generation but in the next say 5, 6, 7 Ryzen generations. AMD will at the minimum meet Intel’s Core I series in IPC and clock per clock performance. Technology advances and if AMD continues it’s path it’s going to reach that point. AMD would be smart to continue to position itself as the core count leader with more features like PCIe lanes and maintain it’s price advantage.
So, what do you guys think of these benchmarks? Does it affect your next CPU upgrade? Do you think Intel is just too big for AMD to topple? Do let us know in the comment section below.
