AMD Ryzen CPU benchmarks emerge

Benchmark results for AMD's Ryzen CPUs have emerged, showcasing performance that is over 50% higher than their FX 8370 and offers similar IPC to modern Intel CPUs. 
While these results are from an AMD Ryzen CPU, they are from an Engineering sample that has lower clock speeds than AMD's retail versions, with this CPU featuring a base clock speed of 3.15GHz, a boost/turbo clock speed of 3.3GHz on all cores and a maximum turbo boost of 3.5GHz on a single CPU core. 
AMD has already stated that their Ryzen CPUs will feature a base clock speed of 3.4+GHz, which means that AMD's retail CPUs will offer higher performance than is shown in these benchmarks below. With a base clock speed of at least 3.4GHz AMD's Ryzen retail CPUs will have around 8% boost in performance, assuming that boost/turbo clock speeds see similar increases.

These results shown are aggregate scores which compare CPUs across a wide range of applications from WPrime, H.264, Blender 3D and other CPU intensive benchmarks. It is also worth noting that these results were likely recorded before AMD's Ryzen event on pre-release hardware, so AMD's retail samples should feature improved performance or increased power efficiency. 

We can see in these CPU-based benchmarks that AMD's Ryzen CPU offers a significant performance boost over their older Piledriver FX 8370, offering over a 50% performance boost despite having a huge reduction in clock speeds. 

We can see that AMD's Ryzen CPU has performance that exceeds Intel's i7 6800K and offers performance that is almost as high as Intel's i7 6900K. This is some hugely impressive performance from AMD, offering performance that is close to Intel's $1000 6900K with a CPU that is known to have lower clocks than final retail samples.

Moving down to gaming performance we see aggregate performance numbers from Far Cry 4, GRID: Autosport, Battlefield 4, Arma III, X3:TC, The Witcher 3 and Anno 2070. 

We can see here that AMD's Ryzen CPU does not perform as well here as can be seen in CPU-only loads, though this can be explained by this sample's lower clock speeds. We can see that AMD's Ryzen CPU offers similar gaming performance to Intel's 6600/6600K and offers some significant performance gains over AMD's older FX 8370. 

With an 8+% boost in clock speeds being expected in final/Retail Ryzen CPUs we can expect gaming performance that is similar to Intel's i7 6800K or 6900K, which is hugely impressive for AMD.

In terms of power consumption AMD's Ryzen CPU was shown to consume 93W under load, which is slightly lower than Intel's i7 6900K and significantly lower than AMD's older Piledriver FX 8370, which consumed 138W. 

With these results, we can see that AMD has made a massive leap in both performance and power efficiency with Zen, with a huge boost in performance despite lower clock speeds and a huge drop in power consumption. 

These results are not from a retail Zen CPU, which is expected to feature higher core clock speeds, so hopefully we can expect even better from AMD's Zen architecture in the future.

Finaly to see AMD back in the game with 8 cores and AMD Vega.Quote

Looks good...I'll not ditch my 5820K but i could use use an upgrade to my server for plex transcoding xDQuote

it will depend on the prices, but i need to upgrade bad, so AMD keep them low enough and you get my moneys Quote

to me that's what it's going to come down to, Amd get the price nice for Ryzen and vega I'll go full amdQuote
