    Phoronix: Core i7 7700K vs. Ryzen 7 1800X With Ubuntu 17.04 + Linux 4.12

    Given the recent BIOS improvements for Ryzen and the ever-advancing state of Linux and components like Mesa (although no recent Ryzen-specific work), here are some fresh tests of the current high-end Ryzen 7 1800X compared to an Intel Core i7 7700K on Ubuntu 17.04 with Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev.

      AMD needs a better prefetcher.

        Performance per core still matters as some of these benchmarks show.

          The machine learning SciKit-Learn test was also better on the i7-7700K.
          The graph says otherwise.

            Exactly. Even multi-threaded applications will have their threads limited to the performance of a single core. The I7-7700K and I7-4790K still rule in single thread performance. It doesn't fit well into 'more is better' marketing though.

              Ryzen is supposed to be a Broadwell competitor. Kaby beating it is no surprise, and no BIOS update will change it.

                Wasn't there an Intel price-drop right after Ryzen announced? In the review they compared Intel's $340 to AMD's $499. What was Intel's price before the drop?

                  What a mixed bag this is... Ryzen obviously has got some great potential, which is really good. But it will take a while until the software developers tap into it. Some will likely ignore it and stay focused on Intel, like it's the case with graphics (and game makers more often focusing on Nvidia).

                    Agreed. Look at the posts on Zen before it was released. Everyones' conclusion was that it would compete with Broadwell out the door, Not Kaby Lake.

                    Look for Ryzen II to exceed Kaby Lake.
