The AMD Ryzen leaks and madness doesn't stop. Today some CPU-Z benchmark results have surfaced of what seems to be a six-core Ryzen 5 1600X processor. The 6 core and 12 threaded processor would have a base clock of 3.3 GHz with a 3.7 GHz Turbo. And the performance seems pretty nice.
Honestly I wasn't expecting to see a 6-core enabled part anytime soon as personally I am expecting an 8-core launch only.
If you look closely at the screenshots you can see summit ridge tagged, that's the real thing you guys. You cannot fake that unless you have master photoshop skills. The one problem that I have with these screenshots is that the two of them cannot be paired automatically together and thus the upper benchmark result set could even be an entirely different 6-core processor. Let's assume it's valid for now though, but please let's take things still with a little reserve and a grain of salt to be certain.
The single threaded (single core) performance of this Ryzen unit shows 1888 points. That is precisely on par with Core i7 6850K single core performance and that I did not expect (thus that is very positive). We know that the Intel Core i7-6850K clocks in at 6/12 (cores/threads) 3.6 GHz / 3.8 GHz (base clock / turbo clock). So compared 1:1 that is really fricken close on the per core performance. The Ryzen muli-threaded performance shows 12544 points, which is faster than a Core i7-6850K who reaches 10872 points in our own testing.
While it is not a fair comparison (4 versus 6 cores), we do expect these two processors to be priced in the same range and thus compared to a quad core Core i5 7600K the Ryzen R5 offers 50% more perf then the 8314 points that CPU scores. Obviously the 7600K has much faster turbo's hence that single threaded core performance locks in at a faster 2135 points.
Have a peek at the numbers, if all true then it is fairly okay to think that the IPC perf for AMD is spot, pretty darn good and close to comparable with what Intel is offering. And we wonder if THIS photo has anything to do with the above results shown.
