AMD Ryzen Review: Faster Performance than Intel Core i7-6800K HEDT Processor, FX-8370 8-Core
AMD wants to prove that their upcoming products are fast, effective and more importantly, running on power efficiency. And the latest leaked reviews of AMD Ryzen processors suggest almost the same information released before, and it is so far almost comparable to that of Intel Core i7-6900K HEDT processor which is worth $1000. The only question now is how much would AMD fight Intel based on price?
AMD Ryzen Beat Intel Core i7 6800K
According to French website Canard PC Hardware (via WCCFTech.com), the review was conducted by hardware guru Doc Teraboule showing a basic summary of the Ryzen processor. The code of the processor reviewed was AMD 2D3151A2M88E, though the chipset for the processor was never named directly as Ryzen. And according to the result of the clock speed testing, it reached about 3.15 GHz base clock, 3.3 GHz Turbo all-core and 3.5 GHz Turbo one-core.
Based on the given information, AMD Ryzen processor has outperformed the six-core HEDT Intel Core i7-6800K which costs $434. However, it fell short on Core i7-6900K by a large margin, though AMD has yet to reveal the price of this Ryzen processor. Intel Core i7-6900K is tagged at $1000. The other good thing is that Ryzen beat its predecessor FX-8370, an AMD 8-core.
AMD Ryzen Comparable with Intel Core i7 6900K
However, it is important to note that AMD Ryzen processors can reach up to 3.4 GHz base clock speed as posted on AMD's press release. In fact, the company boasted it can beat Intel's Core i7 6900K. Here's what AMD has stated back then:
- For the first time, the upcoming Vega GPU architecture was demonstrated live to fans, powered by Ryzen playing Star Wars© BattlefrontTM - Rogue One at 4K resolution with smooth, high frame rates.
- Blender- and Handbrake-based image rendering and video transcoding demos showed that the new CPU can match or outperform the Intel Core i7 6900K -- also an 8-core, 16-thread processor -- in many complex creative tasks. The 140-watt TDP Core i7 6900K ran at stock processor speed and boost against a 95-watt TDP Ryzen processor at 3.4 GHz without boost, showing the computing power and performance-per-watt efficiency of Ryzen.
- Again at 3.4 GHz, Ryzen was shown beating the game frame rates of a Core i7 6900K playing BattlefieldTM 1 at 4K resolution, with each CPU paired to an NVIDIA Titan X GPU.
AMD Ryzen Processor Release Dates, Price
As planned, AMD will be releasing Ryzen processors both for desktops (Q1 2017) and notebooks (2H 2017). However, AMD has yet to reveal its price list along with partner retailers and compatible hardware for the latest Ryzen processors.
