AMD Ryzen Linux Performance

Of course, my main effort for the launch-day coverage of Ryzen 7 are some performance figures. For this initial testing are some CPU-focused Linux benchmarks. Due to the limited time before the embargo expired, I don't have any overclocking results to share yet nor have I carried out our power consumption and performance-per-Watt measurements, Linux gaming benchmarks, and other tests. Stay tuned to Phoronix for them in the days ahead.

For seeing how the Ryzen 7 1800X stacks up I compared it to the following systems:

- Athlon II X3 425
- Phenom II X3 710
- A10-7850K
- FX-8150
- FX-8370E
- FX-8370
- Core i7 990X
- Core i5 4670
- Core i7 4790K
- Core i7 5775C
- Core i7 5960X
- Core i5 6600K
- Core i7 6800K
- Core i3 7100
- Core i5 7600K
- Core i7 7700K
- Xeon E3-1245 v5

The available, relevant systems I had for testing were used for this comparison along with some historical fun by tossing in the Athlon II X3 425 and Phenom II X3 710 for some older AMD figures.

All of these systems were running Ubuntu 17.04 x86_64 with the Linux 4.10 kernel. The GPUs and disks varied between systems, but again, the testing today is focused solely on the pure CPU Linux benchmarks.


These AMD Ryzen benchmarks and other Intel/AMD Linux tests were all carried out in a fully-automated and reproducible manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
