AMD Ryzen 7 1700 vs Core i7 7700K and Ryzen 7 1700X vs Core i7 6800K Official Gaming Benchmarks Performance Slide Leaked


The first official AMD Ryzen gaming performance benchmarks have been leaked. It looks like AMD held a special event for editors after their GDC Capsaicin and Cream session, where they revealed new gaming performance benchmarks, comparing their Ryzen chips with Intel's high-end Core i7 processors.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X and 1700 Gaming Performance Slides Leaked - Official Results Show Core i7 Chips Getting a Beating In Performance/Dollar Value

While we have already seen several gaming performance results, it doesn't get more official than these. The leaked slides were officially showcased by AMD at a press event and manage to provide a visual representation of Ryzen's gaming performance in several AAA titles against Intel's fastest Core i7 Kaby Lake and their entry level Core i7 6800K enthusiast chip. The results could be found below:

Intel Xeon W-3400 & W2400 HEDT ‘W790’ Platform Rumored For Q4 Launch, 13th Gen Raptor Lake & W790 Platform in October Followed By H770 & B660 In Q1 2023

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Gaming Benchmarks:

The first slide shows us the gaming performance of AMD's Ryzen 7 1700X ($399 US) processor against Intel's Core i7-6800K ($434 US) processor. We see that while the Intel chip generally leads in more game titles than the AMD counterpart, the difference is so small that the extra price of the Intel chip doesn't seem to be of a great value. All games were tested at maximum settings at 1440P tests. We have made charts so that you can easily compare performance of the both chips as the image is a little blurred. The performance was evaluated with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Gaming Benchmarks:

The second performance slide show the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 up against the Intel Core i7-7700K processor. These chips are $329 US and $339 US respectively. Again, we see the Intel chip faster in most benchmarks but the Ryzen chip is a bit cheaper and has higher multi-threaded performance for the other workloads aside of gaming. The performance was evaluated with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card.

While these results are from AMD and show some high caliber gaming performance of the new Ryzen processors, it's advised to wait for reviews that will be ready on 2nd March 2017. Benchmark reviews of Ryzen will be telling the whole story on real-world Ryzen performance in gaming and productivity apps.

AMD Ryzen 7 Series CPUs – Flagship AMD 7 1800X With 8 Cores, 16 Threads, 4 GHz Boost Clocks

The AMD 8 core range will feature the fastest “X” variant in the lineup. This processor will be known as the AMD 7 1800X and will feature 8 cores and 16 threads. This model is expected to operate at base clocks of 3.6 GHz and boost clocks of 4.0 GHz. The performance of this processor should be on par with Intel’s Core i7 6900K. Other details include an L2 + L3 cache of 20 MB (4 MB + 16 MB) and a TDP of 95W. The chip will have enthusiast level pricing at $499 which compared to Intel's 6900K ($1000 US+) is a great deal.

The rest of the processors in the Ryzen 7 family are also 8 core and 16 threaded variants. The Ryzen 7 series has clock speeds ranging from 3.0 GHz up to 3.6 GHz. The processors include Ryzen 7 PRO 1800, Ryzen 7 1700X, Ryzen 7 1700 (Gaming and CPU Benchmarks here) and Ryzen 7 PRO 1700. The AMD 1800X also managed to break the 8 core Cinebench R15 performance world record last week, more details here.
