Clock speeds and pricing have been leaked for AMD's entire Ryzen lineup

AMD Ryzen 1600X benchmarks leak

 
Benchmarks for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 1600X have leaked, revealing exactly how well AMD's new 6-core, 12-thread CPU can perform. 
 
The CPU tested has base and boost clock speeds of 3.3GHz and 3.7GHz, though the screenshots below showcase oscillating clock speeds due to low CPU loads. Using CPUz the leaker benchmarked the CPU using the tool's built-in bench function, though it is worth noting that CPU performance can vary greatly across different workloads.

Below are these alleged Ryzen CPU benchmarks, alongside a benchmark of Intel's i7 6850K at stock clock speeds (3.6GHz base 3.8GHZ boost). We can see here that AMD's Ryzen CPU scores 1888 in the single threaded test and 12544 in the multi-threaded test. 

Compare this to our i7 6850K, which in the same test offered scores of 1845 on a single thread and 11147 scores all cores/threads. This is a very favourable result for AMD, though it is worth noting that we have no proof that this test wasn't done on an overclocked Ryzen CPU. 

Even so, this result does show that AMD's Ryzen CPUs do have what it takes to compete with Intel's Broadwell-E series CPUs, though it remains to be seen if this performance will hold true over a wide enough range of applications to truly challenge Intel's market dominance.

For comparison purposes, we used a Core i5-7600K running in our test rig and loaded the same CPU-z version (v1.78.1 x64).

This is not a conclusive result but the multi-threaded performance is really good for the AMD part. This chip is expected to retail at $259 US which is $17 more than the $242 asking price of the Intel part.

Just read that on WCCF. So wait.. Let me get my head around this. The six core 12 thread AMD Ryzen chip costs $17 more than a I5.

Hory shet.

Oh, the 7600k is an I7. Oh well, seems I was right (this is after digging for more info). It seems AMD are going to match Intel on prices but offer more at every step. So I7 for I5 money etc.

Just shows how much attention I gave Kaby though.

Edit again. No it isn't an I7. Hory shet. Damn Intel and their confusing number scheme. If we just add a 6 in place of a 5 we can charge 50% more !Quote

Good to see this cpu performing well as this is the one I'm most interested in personallyQuote

It should definitely be the sweet spot for a few years to come. Then you can upgrade to an 8 core if we start seeing heavier loads.

I strongly suspect Intel will hit back with a 6 core desktop CPU. They have to. Which means we will finally start taking baby steps forward when it comes to core loads etc.Quote

I still take it with a pinch of salt, BUT i cannot deny it is looking very likely my trusty old ivy bridge is getting replaced this year in favor for a ryzen cpu.Quote

The last product/price stack looked spot on to me. I also think I am in agreement with AdoredTV, these leaks are deliberate. Sort of like a way for AMD to dangle the carrot to make sure people pay attention on release day.

I'm still quite torn personally. I guess if I did upgrade my 5820k at least I wouldn't have to buy any memory which is a bonus.

I won't jump on it on day one though. Got a couple of lean months coming up any way, which should give me time to analyse it all properly and make the right decision. I just don't think I need it, which does make me kinda sad Quote
