AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver

AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver Now, thanks to some leaked benchmarks and sleuthing at WCCFTech, we’ve got our first glance at how AMD’s Zen engineering samples perform against other hardware in Ashes of the Singularity.This last point is extremely significant, because it’s common for prototype chips and engineering samples to offer less performance than the final version.

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen While the leaks haven’t been confirmed as genuine, it was interesting to see the conversation around Zen and AMD’s expected performance level.Then, at an event on Wednesday, AMD showed some demos of Zen running clock-for-clock against Intel’s 5960X.

A state of Zen: AMD unveils new architectural details on its latest CPU core

A state of Zen: AMD unveils new architectural details on its latest CPU core One CPU complex (CCX) contains four cores, 2MB of L2 cache (512KB per core), and 8MB of L3 cache.That means AMD’s highest-end consumer Zen contains eight cores and 16MB of L3 cache in total, split into 2x8MB chunks.

New leaked benchmarks show AMD's Ryzen going toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7

New leaked benchmarks show AMD's Ryzen going toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7 4GHz base clock that AMD has promised for top-end Ryzen cores, so if we assume a modest boost clock of 3.6GHz it means final test results should be somewhat higher than what we see below.

The Pentium G4560 with Hyper-Threading is a potent budget processor

The Pentium G4560 with Hyper-Threading is a potent budget processor Last month, Intel launched its 7th generation refresh of the Core processor family, codenamed Kaby Lake.The Pentium G4560 is in the middle of this new family of Pentiums — its clock speed of 3.

AMD issues report on thread scheduling, gaming, Ryzen, and Windows 10

AMD issues report on thread scheduling, gaming, Ryzen, and Windows 10 In a recent blog post, AMD’s Robert Hallock shed some light on AMD’s research into this question and whether or not the Windows 10 scheduler is causing problems for AMD’s Ryzen microprocessor.From the post: We have investigated reports alleging incorrect thread scheduling on the AMD Ryzen™ processor.

Ashes of the Singularity update substantially boosts AMD Ryzen performance

Ashes of the Singularity update substantially boosts AMD Ryzen performance When AMD launched its Ryzen 7 family, it delivered a chip that exceeded our expectations in just about every category, but fell down somewhat in gaming.But there was a clear gap at 1080p in both our Ryzen 7 review and our GTX 1080 Ti testing.

Intel CEO admits to industry-wide conspiracy to slow CPU advances, kill frequency boosts

Intel CEO admits to industry-wide conspiracy to slow CPU advances, kill frequency boosts “We actually got the idea from Craig Barrett,” said Krzanich, referring to Intel’s CEO from 1998 – 2005.The technical press labeled it a ‘marchitecture,’ and complained that customers weren’t actually getting the performance they thought they were entitled to.
