AMD Ryzen 3DMark Scores Compare Favorably to Intel Counterparts

Recommended Posts

The latest 3DMark benchmark leaks for the upcoming AMD Ryzen CPUs show that the chips can hold up against many of the latest Intel chips, despite being far cheaper. In the initial comparison, Videocardz compared the four, six, and eight core Ryzen models with numbers taken from Toms Hardware. The four core model held the lowest position on the chart with the six core just a few thousand points behind several Intel chips. The eight core model beat out all but the best Intel chips at a stock speed of 3.4 GHz, and fell just short of the Core i7 6950X when overclocked to 4.0 GHz. When compared to the official Futuremark score database, the overclocked eight core Ryzen beat the i7 6950X by about 500 points. On a per core basis, the eight core Ryzen outperforms the i7 6950X and the six and four core Ryzen perform even better. A number of Intel chips were able to convincingly beat the Ryzen chips on a per core basis, with the i7 7700K overclocked to 4.8 GHz reigning supreme. At a cost of $389 for the eight core Ryzen and $1700 for the i7 6950X, AMD can certainly offer a tremendous amount of bang for your buck.
