Oh man, there is no stopping the Ryzen hype train is it? Somebody posted a screenshot of Ashes of the Singularity showing a CPU benchmark run with you guessed it right, an AMD Ryzen entry.
You’ll notice that the run was done at 4K with a GeForce Titan X (Pascal). The processor is denoted as AMD Ryzen: ZD3601BAM88F4_40/36_Y thus 40/36 indicating a 4.0 GHz binned Turbo with a 3.6 GHz base clock. Considering this is an eight-core processor we may assume that at least two cores run at 4.0 GHz. The processor scores an average CPU framerate of 71 FPS as you can see in the screenshot.
I just mimicked the settings and popped in a Titan X myself on a Core i7 5960X test rig here in the lab. My main VGA test rig is configured with all CPU cores (8) at 4.3 GHz, my result set on the (all batches) CPU framerate ends with a 53 FPS CPU average.
Now I need to be careful here as this is tricky, you can run the AOS benchmark two ways, GPU and CPU mode. We can only assume that the benchmark was run in CPU mode if you wanted to show off a processor result set right? Thing is, if we run our test in GPU mode, our 6950X average reaches well over 110 FPS. So this can goand end up two ways, just really good or plain bad. Also it would have been much better to see CPU results at 1080P being less GPU bound of course.
We used the same system memory setup (16GB though quad channel) and ‘Crazy’ settings in DX12 and ran it at Ultra HD, much as the ‘leaked’ screenshot shows. The leaking tester was called AMD_FanBoy …. Oh dear. Make of this result set what you want of course.
One thing seems a sure fact though, we're going to see 4.0 GHz Ryzen processor models, if the entry wasn't fake of course. The results at AOTS website already have been removed.
