Compared to the Core i5-7600K we see that the AMD Ryzen chip lags behind when it comes to single threaded performance but when it comes to multi-threaded performance AMD Ryzen5 1600X is ahead in the game. According to the latest rumors, this model should features 6 core, 12 thread and a TDP of 95W. Additionally, it is exceptionally intriguing to note that the new Ryzen 5 1600X CPU is around 47% more power efficient than Intel's Core i7-6800K processor. It has a base clock of 3.2 GHz and a boost clock of 3.4 GHz. The most interesting of all the leaked details is, however, the pricing of AMD Ryzen 7 1700X. It's worth remembering that not all programs will make use of the extended number of cores and threads offered by both Intel and AMD's 6, 8 and 10-core CPUs - raw frequency and IPC are still just as important, so a lot will depend on just how overclockable Ryzen parts are when they arrive. Two 95 watt Black Editions, the 1800X and the 1700X, also a 65W 1700 chip.
I've included data for Intel's Core i7-7700K in the graph too - it has a much higher turbo frequency of 4.5GHz, which is why it obtained a faster single-thread score. In the mid-range, AMD will actually offer 6-core 12-thread CPUs, which will compete at the same price bracket that's now occupied by Intel's flock of i5 chips, as per WccFtech.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X performance figures have leaked and not only do we have benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, we also have some stats for the little brother AMD Ryzen 5 1300.
Yeah it seems AMD is on a roll, this will be a big launch.
