amazon AMD Ryzen reviews
After years of dives and Intel’s head restraint on the personal computer CPU market, AMD made an impressive return to Ryzen. The 3 CPU of the Ryzen 7 series first came out, headed for the premium segment and were ready to compete on par with expensive CPUs from Intel.
In addition to owning a whole new microarchitecture, Ryzen also delivers remarkable performance with IPC indexes, the number of scripts executed per clock, up to 52% over the previous generation, Excavator.
AMD also refreshed itself with new naming, easier to understand and somewhat easier to compare with the CPUs across the front lines. AMD’s Ryzen 7, 5, 3 will be compatible with Intel’s Core i7, i5, i3. Although all CPUs have open multiplier and overclocking capability, the X-tail on the CPU name emphasizes slightly better performance than other brothers.
The X at the end of the CPU name is only XFR technology, extending the CPU clock quotas, Extended Frenqency Range. With this technology, when the CPU needs to handle a heavy task, it spontaneously pushes the clock to about 100 MHz above the available boost pulse.
Going into the benchmark, AMD’s 3 new CPUs are impressive. With 8 cores of 16 threads, when compared to pure power, all 3 barely fear of any competitor on Intel side. The Ryzen configuration is used to benchmark the entirety completely, the only difference being the CPU. The remaining components include:
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair VI Hero
RAM: Corsair Vengance 2x8GB DDR-3000 CL16 running at clock frequency DDR4-2400 C15
SSD: Crucial MX200 TB
Source: Rosewill SilentNight 500W Platinum
VGA: MSI GTX 1080 Gaming 8GB
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro

Looking at most of the benchmarks and in terms of price, Ryzen’s performance is indeed remarkable. These tasks take full advantage of the performance of all 8 cores. The 16 threads of these CPUs will benefit the most. Thanks to the multiplier and large flow, computing power and data processing, Ryzen’s rendering is always at par with even the i7-6900K. Encryption tasks also score very impressive.
Most of the time the 3 CPUs of AMD do not show much when the benchmarks are based on games running OpenGL or DirectX 11. Even with Doom, although home grown with Vulkan, Ryzen’s gaming performance is also Not yet superior to the i7-7700K or Intel’s HEDT CPUs. So how smart is AMD, how good it is to use Sniper Elite 4 and Battlefield 1, two titles can be temporarily referred to as multi-core CPU optimization.
As such, we can see that despite its mightiness, Ryzen still does not quite fit the needs of the masses, especially when playing games. Intel Core i7-7700K is still a safer option for gamers. One bright spot when playing games from Ryzen CPUs is the ability to keep the minimum FPS relatively well, limiting quite a lot of declining frames.
Not only that, as observed, while playing the game, most CPU load time of the Ryzen’s CPU is only about 3 to 40%, there is plenty of space to perform tasks that need other CPU resources such as stream. Remember that encoding with the CPU always gives better image quality than the GPU. Therefore, the Ryzen CPUs will be very suitable for gamers cum streamer due to the ability to keep FPS stable while stream. This is what quad-core CPUs like the i7-7700K still have to crave.
For professional users with powerful data processing needs such as render, Ryzen is a great choice. Extremely affordable for extremely powerful performance, Intel’s HEDT CPUs look like clown. Although only half the price of the i7-6900K, the R7 1800X still performs nearly equal or sometimes better performance on tasks such as rendering, encoding, or encryption.
Of course, AMD Ryzen is still too new for us to be rigorous with it. AMD is said to have sent over 300 sets of devkit software development support to developers so they can optimize the scripts on their application to fit Ryzen. When the power of Ryzen 7 is fully utilized, they certainly will not fear CPUs from Intel in any way.
