AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Cinebench, 3DMark Physics Benchmarks Leaked

The most affordable chip, AMD's Ryzen 7 1700, is targeting Intel's Core i7-7700K (and by extensions, its predecessors), which are now the processor of choice for many enthusiasts. The following table, which we speculated upon last week, is now confirmed as being largely true. And we've got a couple of surprises and new pieces of information to share as well. The prices aside from a tenner have been spot on based on the earlier leaked information you guys have seen. That's a big number - but AMD says it has exceeded it, hitting a 52 percent increase in instructions per clock. That figure turned out to be different to the performance improvement that AMD is actually quoting, which now stands at 52%. The Ryzen 7 1700 however is a 329 United States dollars processor that remains to be unlocks and likely is easily tweaked towards the 1800X. Core count is very much part of the store, and as predicted, the company plans to debut Ryzen with a phalanx of eight-core, 16-thread chips.

Starting today you can preorder the processors and motherboards with full availability next week March 2nd. As we've mentioned in the past, Ryzen is a completely new design that was over 4 years in the making. Dr. Su said that every part of the design, from the cores, to the cache, to the process technology, and even the physical layout has been optimized through the design cycle for both performance and power.

System integrators such as Overclockers UK and PC Specialist will have Ryzen-powered systems available from the March 2 launch day, as will a double-digit number of other system builders (worldwide). In Ryzen 7, AMD's return to the high-performance consumer CPU market looks set to be a highly disruptive one that could deal a significant sucker punch to its primary competitor.

Ryzen 7 is 8 cores, 16 threads for the 3 SKUs. It comes with a 3.6GHz stock clock speed and boosts up to 4.0GHz. The next member of the line-up is the Ryzen 7 1700X. Finally, there's the top-of-the-line $499 1800X, which runs at 3.6GHz and can be boosted to 4.0GHz.

At the high-end, there's the AMD flagship - the Ryzen 7 1800X. According to AMD's benchmark results, the 1800X outperforms Intel's eight-core i7-6900K by nine percent in Cinebench R15 nT and performs identically in Cinebench R15 1T. In contrast, the Intel i7-5960X scores 1318 in the multi-core test and 138 in the single-core test.

AMD also showed tests of the cheaper Ryzen 7 1700 CPU ($469) surpassing Intel's i7-7700K. Based on current street prices, Ryzen will be between 20% - 50% lower priced.

On Wednesday, the Sunnyvale, Calif. -based chipmaker announced details for three central processing units (or CPUs) under the Ryzen 7 brand that beat Intel's top PC chips in both price and performance. A Ryzen liquid cooler has already appeared online, the Corsair H60 (which is also compatible with Intel's Skylake series of CPUs). Most of AMD's board partners have an array of Ryzen motherboards on the way, with prices ranging from about $90 - $95 at the entry-level to roughly $230 - $260 at the high end.

In another test, AMD wanted to show that Ryzen has more than enough horsepower to keep a high-end graphics configuration fed with data. We will know more as we conduct benchmarks on our own Ryzen chips.

We'll tell you what our benchmarks say, with official retail processors.

Interestingly, these Ryzen chips are to be available for pre-order from a bunch of popular retailers starting today, though first deliveries won't take place until the hard launch on March 2, which you can also infer is the review NDA date. AMD has lined up 185 retailers and boutique system builders for the launch in many regions around the world if you simply can not wait and want to get in line for Ryzen. If you can wait, however, our full, independent review will be live in the not too distant future. Intel said its latest, seventh generation Kaby Lake chip line "delivers the best experiences", adding "with 8th Gen Intel Core, and new technologies like Intel Optane memory coming soon, Intel will not stop raising the bar". However things ultimately shake out, renewed competition in the desktop processor space is good for everyone.
