I am not too sure how does that compare to Intel but it should be on-par already
yeah I am not a huge fan of those AMD numbers. I will have to wait and see in reviews.
Obviously the performance is going to be better, but we will see how that ends up.
Before Ryzen 3000 launched I actually expected a smaller IPC gain but a bitter clockspeed increase. Especially on those lower end CPUs like the 3600X.
The new 3600X is only 200MHZ higher than the 2600X. I mean that is nice, but I had hoped for a bigger jump, but we will see how it ends up with the IPC gain and 200MHZ more in games.
I would be surprised if the 3800X and 3900X beats the 9900K 5GHZ in all games. Maybe not even the 9900K normal.
Same for the 3700X and the 9700K and the 3600X and 8700K.
But if AMD can come "VERY" close to those fps numbers in CPU limiting scenarios then I guess the better price/perf and perf/watt will make it an overall more attractive buy.
I think the worst case scenarios right now are games like Deus Ex, CS GO and DotA2 where intel is like 40%+ faster, but on average for games it is more like 15-20%.
(I am strictly talking CPU limit here)
One thing that gives me hope for Ryzen is faster memory. Scales extremely well with low timings
