Performance - IPC

Instructions per cycle (IPC) clock for clock at 3500 MHz

This IPC test will build up and get updated over time. We lock all processor cores at 3500 MHz. That way you can see the architecture performance of the processor clocked at exactly the same frequency. This is a single-thread measurement. For many people, this is the holy grail of CPU measurements in terms of how fast an architecture per core really is. I, however, tend to say there's more to it than that, and that would be higher frequency allowances versus P-states, caches, and memory latency defining that per-core performance. IPC x a higher Clock frequency is more performance. Intel with Alder lake currently and marginally offers the best IPC per performance core, Intel however reaches higher clock frequencies.

Coming from the Ryzen 9 5950X (Vermeer), we see an increase of 3% in IPC over last gen.
