The tension for AMD fans can be felt in the air. We are about a week away from their official release of AMD’s Ryzen CPU (previously known as ‘Zen’). To whet our appetites, let’s have a look at some leaked benchmarks.

AMD Ryzen vs Intel Core i7 6850K

This benchmark image comes from Wccftech.com. It shows that in multi-core, Ryzen puts a huge smoking on Intel’s latest and greatest, the Intel Core i7 7700K and i7 6850K.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X single-core results of CPU-Z aren’t quite as promising when compared to the i7 7700K. This is due to i7 7700K significantly higher clock speed of 4.5GHz. It’s certain that Ryzen will be overclockable, and as time goes on, higher clocked models will be released. Ryzen 5 1600K beats out the i7 6580K.

Importantly, the Ryzen 5 1600X shown benchmarked here is only Ryzen’s mid-range CPU. Ryzen 7 1800X carries more cores, more threads, and a 20% higher clock speed with turbo up to 4.0GHz.

Ryzen cost

Let’s take a closer look at price performance bang for the buck. The AMD Ryzen 5 1600X is reportedly going to sell for an incredible $259, in comparison to Intel Core i7 6580K at $610. So, here we have better performance at less than half the price.

Ryzen TDP power consumption

TDP power use of Ryzen 5 1600X is 95W in comparison to 140W for Intel Core i7-6850K. This is a whopping 47% less, and means significantly cooler temperatures, which in turn means overclockability should likewise be huge.
