Looks like someone wanted to see exactly how powerful Ryzen really was. Disabled one of the core clusters so it's a 4-core, 8-thread CPU duel.

The results... are amazing...

AMD is nipping at the heels of the i7. Still a bit slower by about 5-10%... but it's awesome to see this guys.

[[[[[Okay since the entirety of the thread is formed from comments of people who have not actually understood the point of the article I shall be explaining it below...]]]]]

The context of this article is based around the whole idea of seeing how far AMD has progressed and how close AMD actually is compared to Intel's offerings in a REALISTIC OFFERING from products to be released in the future.

This entire article SIMULATES an i7 vs a Ryzen R5 or R3 processor and shows exactly how close a new Ryzen AMD CPU gets to an identically clocked i7.

4Ghz quad vs 4Ghz quad. Same Ram, same frequency, same amount, same GPU, same SSD... and AMD is nipping at the heels of the i7 in every application. That's the entire post in a nutshell.


If you are saying 5GHz is a realistic overclock for any i7 or i5 owner since Sandy Bridge, you obviously have no idea how rare it is to maintain such a clock speed at a safe voltage, or how high and UNSAFE that voltage needs to be to handle such an overclock.

CONTEXT MATTERS.

AMD already stated that the IPC delta between RyZen and Kaby Lake is about 6.8%... The real gains from Kaby Lake come from the clock speed difference.

Also, why am I seeing a reference cooler for the Intel build even though the write-up states different?

In perfect case yes but looking at those benchmarks Zen has IVY-Haswell IPC like. Thats 2012 CPU performance.

Looking at those benchmarks, Ryzen is (excluding extreme results like AIDA raytrace) between a 10% slower to a 5% faster.

That doesn't normalize to Ivy-Haswell, that normalizes to Broadwell.

And Ryzen has twice the cores, what's your point?

That much is obvious. The objective is to measure IPC at the same clock speed.

They're testing clock-for-clock and core-for-core, not processor vs processor. You entirely missed the point of the article.

Now they need to improve the clocks on Ryzen 2.
Its ok and nothing more. 4C/8T will be much cheaper than 7700K and 20-25% slower.

Wait... how? This CPU was disabled to 50% of it's total capacity. If the Ryzen R3 CPUs measure up to being literally half of what an 1800x is capable of doing, then this is a massive win-win for any potential buyer. o_o

*IF* speculated prices turn out to be true, then a near-i7 CPU at $180 will literally change the shape of the desktop market all over again.

lol you're talking like 7700k 5ghz is normal OC. Its not. I know people with 7700k and can only dream of hitting 5ghz as a everyday usage.

Clock for clock it looks similar to Haswell-E.
I disabled 2 core's on my 5820k so it's running 4core's 8 thread's @ 4Ghz and 3200Mhz mem

Should of clocked mem to 2400Mhz cl15 but oh well only geek bench really benifits from it
