    gaming is not that bad considering its a 3.2ghz vs 4.2 or 4.4ghz intel quads..

    i think at same freq. it will rival and or beat it np.

    This seems way better than I expected. It's dangerously close to Intel's performance. The power consumption is lower than an i7. And this is based on an early chip without boost clocks. Ryzen shaping way better than I expected.

    What's obvious from these benchmarks (if they are to be believed) is that single-core performance is still lower than Intel. However if there is enough overclocking head-room, this CPU and its lower-tier lineups (priced appropriately), could make some damage.

    Hopefully the turbo-boost speeds are good enough when they are revealed, and on top of that, hopefully there is great overclocking potential in Ryzen. Especially in the mid-range 8-core version of this CPU (since that will likely become the highest seller).

    We all really need AMD to pull through on this one. We need the competition.

    Tbh it's not that much lower considering sample 4 had highest boost and that was 3.3ghz on all cores. It might be lacking few % here and there but not much.

    It better come with higher stock clocks to make a point against Intel. And better scale damn good in OC to make sense as a premium gaming platform.

    As it stands now, an Intel 6700K with 20% better performance in gaming is a far better choice for regular users that dont bother with OC. AMD really needs a CPU offer that also covers single-thread performance, with some awesome turbo mode for that.

    Impressive, now let's see some overclocking results and the price. (of the mobos too).

    Yeah i hope so to , the only reasson that i7 wins in these gaming benchmarks is becouse of the higher clock if the benchmarks are real , so if amd manages to turbo all the way up to 4ghz with good cooling intel might have a surprize :D , i for one shure will go and pick a 6 core model and give my curent i5 4460 to my gf since she uses a laptop , AMD time for me , i am not joking i am really thinking to build a AMD only pc , for old times sake(miss my amd barton 2500+ with ati 9600 :< )

    Encouraging + on top of that Lisa Su has said the lowest base clock will be 3.4GHz.

    Having made a point of how the chip can auto overclock according to the quality of cooling over expected min air all the way up to LN I am expecting they have some expected headroom available to respectable rigs ^^

    I'm pretty sure that it's going to be a lot cheaper.

    You do understand its gaming we talk about here , something that we know doesnt uses on avrg more then 4 cores , so its doing quite well @ the lower speed , and if you mention the i7 well mate open your eyes and se the speed its runing its 4.2ghz vs 3.3 ...
    Seriusly tho why do people look for bad things in this , where there is none , plus its a engineering sample , not runing with its turbo boost and @ a lower clock speeds(not much tho)

    Looks pretty good and thing is once more games start taking advantage of the extra cores it should really start to gain some ground.

    my plan is to build a system for my music production based on zen, but if it turns out to be better for games than my 4790k I'll probably keep it for games and move my 4790k setup into the studio.

    At 91% clock, it is 90% Gaming performance

    Freq Ratio: 3.4/3.7 = 0.9189
    Gaming Perf Ratio: 97.3/107.4 = 0.9059
    CPU Bench Ratio: 168.7/193.4 = 0.8722

    So, at 91% clock, it is 90% Gaming performance. How is AMD in trouble? Please elaborate.

    Thanks.

    These benchmarks look quite promising. At this point I just need to see the final pricing in order to add a Ryzen based system to my household network. :nerd:

    Now the only remaining factor to consider is Price- If they get that right they will get some backing from the community, If not and they price it like they did the original Fx 9590 Nobody will boder with it.

    Lets hope they play there cards right.

    Obvious from these benchmarks? Jesus.. it was obvious from the get go! 40% IPC increase we ALWAYS knew to place per core performance at around Broadwell level.. or weren't you paying any attention to the news over the last year or so? We always knew Ryzen was about multi-core performance hence why the first bench to be leaked was Blender.

    How are they not going to pull through? Intel if it's smart will adjust prices so that people consider upgrading to their own parts when Ryzen is released.

    Zen SR3: (65W, quad-core, eight threads, ~$150 USD)
    Zen SR5: (95W, hexa-core, twelve threads, ~$250 USD)
    Zen SR7: (95W, octo-core, sixteen threads, ~$350 USD)
    Special Zen SR7: (95W, octo-core, sixteen threads, ~$500 USD)

    AMD need money.. they'll charge what people will pay, as above. The only thing that Ryzen has forced Intel to do is create Coffee Lake and it will likely push prices down a bit on their existing six and eight core products. Nothing major.

    Yes but look at them from different perspective, the only fresh and heavy engine game out of 7 is Witcher 3 and I don`t think it can utilise more than 4 cores (DX12 will do more), and the CPU I have i5 6600 can do 3.6Ghz with prime95 at all cores and 3.9Ghz when not. The best sample of ZEN is doing 3.4Ghz, that is 0.5Ghz lower in turbo and 0.45Ghz lower when stressed. Whole difference between 4c 4t i5 6600 and 8c 16t engineering sample is -1.3%, if a 6 core 12 thread RYZEN shows up with more turbo than i5 6600 but with even lower price point it will eat up a lot of market share. The results are just fine and a proper RYZEN is very promising.

    I am really curious to see a clock to clock gaming benchmark: Zen vs 6700K, if they downclock the i7 to the Zen ES clocks the results on gaming should be really interesting!
