AMD Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X Linux Benchmarks
The time needed to build the Linux kernel on the Ryzen 5 2600X in a default configured x86_64 kernel build was about 95 seconds with the Ryzen 5 2600X or 76 seconds on the Ryzen 7 2700X. This improved Ryzen CPU was now just fast enough to put it ahead of the Core i7 8700K by one second.
Though the AC system power consumption was 40~50 Watts higher.
With the TTSIOD multi-threaded renderer, the Ryzen 7 2700X is fast enough now to meet the performance of the i7-8700K and represents a 9% boost over the Ryzen 7 1800X.
Though on a performance-per-Watt basis, the Intel Coffeelake CPU remains stronger.
The x264 video encoding test is 4% faster with the Ryzen 7 2700X over the Ryzen 7 1800X and outperforms the i7-8700K thanks to the additional cores/threads.
