I compared the Single Thread performance of a Ryzen 7 2700 @ 4.2 GHz and my 4770k's at 4.43 GHz, a very modest OC below 1.3V.
The Ryzen 7 2700 scored 176 Cinebench Marks and my 4770k scored 178 Cinebench Marks.
Based on this, I wouldn't buy a 1st or 2nd gen Ryzen at all except if you are out for MC performance. I only care about ST performance.
See right side for 4770k performance.
If I was insane or just plainly didn't care about the remaining life of my (un-delidded) 4770k, I could easily get 4.6 GHz on it at a VCORE>1.3V on my Noctua NH-D14.
