More AMD Ryzen 7 1800X vs Intel Core i7 6900K gaming performance benchmarks have come out. They show the $499 Ryzen chip winning a big lead — or should I say winning big league? — vs Intel’s fastest 8-core desktop CPU, the $1050 Core i7 6900K.

The performance comparison has been picked up by our friends over at VCZ after being spotted on Chinese hardware forums, where nearly all Ryzen related leaks seem to be coming from.

New 1800X Benchmarks Spotted In SiSoftware Sandra Database

There’s also been some more performance benchmarks that have popped up in the SiSoftware Sandra Database a few hours ago.

The results show a single Ryzen 7 1800X leading several multi-CPU Xeon enterprise systems in multimedia and cryptography performance. These results should obviously be taken with the usual grain of salt like any other synthetic test.
