Earlier this month, we told you about the first Ryzen 7 1700X benchmarks, which showed truly mind-blowing results. More numbers have now been leaked online, courtesy of Futuremark’s benchmark database. In addition to the Ryzen 7 1700X, we now have the Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 5 1300 benchmark results as well.
In the 3DMark Fire Strike Physics benchmark, the Ryzen 7 1700X when overclocked to 4.0 GHz leaves everything else behind with a score of 20,249 points. With the base 3.4 GHz clock, the 1700X scores 17,878, slightly behind Intel Core i7 6950X which scores 19,740 points.
The six-core Ryzen 5 1600X scores 15,271 points in the same test, finishing slightly ahead of the Intel Core i7 5960X, which scores 14,640 points. Ryzen 5 1300 too posts a decent performance, scoring 10,177. When comparing scores per core as well, AMD’s Ryzen processors show a significant improvement, with Ryzen 7 1700X almost matching the much more expensive Intel Core i7 6950X processor.
More benchmarks as well as full-fledged reviews of the AMD Ryzen processors are expected to be available by the end of the month, as AMD has started sending out review samples to the press. The actual launch is expected to take place on 2nd of March at 7PM PST.
