AMD vs Intel
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/feature/pc-components/amd-vs-intel-amd-ryzen-vs-intel-kaby-lake-which-processor-is-best-3528212/

At the start of 2017 both Intel and AMD were in the process of releasing their latest generation of CPUs. Intel is now on its seventh generation of Core processors - codenamed Kaby Lake - and AMD appears to have a stormer on its hands in the form of Ryzen.
Intel's Kaby Lake range covers everything: desktops, laptops, tablets, 2-in-1s and servers. What we haven't yet seen is the ultra-high-end enthusiast chips (dubbed Kaby Lake X).

Should you buy an Intel or AMD CPU?
AMD vs Intel: Core i7
If you’re building a desktop PC, the choice between AMD and Intel is as real as ever. The choice is as complicated as ever, too: visit any well-known online retailer and you’ll be faced with a choice of hundreds CPUs. If you’re driven by budget, AMD has a strong command of the lower price-points, but if you opt for AMD it doesn’t mean you exclude yourself from high-end computing: the brand new Ryzen processors put up a tough challenge to Intel’s flagship Core i7 CPUs.

TBH, I don't think you can genuinely call any quad an ultra-high-end or enthusiast chip if it doesn't have quite the IPC advantage. Even the BW-E hexas are a borderline case after Ryzen released.

It's also hilarious how they call graphics architectures platforms.

I don't know... if VIA-Zhaoxin continues on its warpath it might become a better choice. (8-core with Puma perf @ 3 GHz with a relatively good iGPU.. mmmm)

VIA chips have traditionally lacked a lot of instruction sets, forcing them to run a lot in software rather than on hardware, hampering performance greatly. If VIA have acquired licensing for the latest SSE, AVX and other necessary instruction sets they might stand a chance, otherwise their chips will continue to be irrelevant.

Doesn't bode too well. An Ivy i5 pushes twice the arithmetic score and three times the multimedia score at the same clocks. Against Phenom II (X4), IPC in arithmetic is a third behind while closely matching in multimedia.

I don't exactly expect a great iGPU either, AMD and Nvidia have been the only ones to make a worthwhile >10W GPU, Intel has spent the better part of the last decade to make something decent and even then the driver side is quite flaky. The die has to be really small for this to be impressive.

They're claiming SSE4.2 and AVX(+2) support. No mention about actual excecution speed, but I wouldn't expect it to be high, this is a cheap eight core on the desktop with an iGPU.
