New Leaked Benchmarks Show Ryzen being Crazy Competitive

Finally! Finally! Finally! We have the first leaked benchmark for Ryzen that shows us AMD is back in a big way!!! Granted, we’re still in the leak/rumor phase of this ordeal, but at this point it’s looking way more realistic to say that AMD is going to be competing heavily with Intel in the CPU market. There’s several performance numbers, but it’s the single-threaded chart and the price leaks that should utterly blow your mind, especially since it’s been so long since we’ve seen something like this on the CPU side. I started trying to get this single threaded benchmark announced earlier this week, but my schedule only allows me to do so much. However, some leaked benchmarks are showing us that AMD seems to be living up to their claims in big way. In two recent cases, the leaks show performance per core that matches the level of Intel Broadwell and Haswell CPUs. Considering many of us would have been happy to merely see Sandy Bridge level of single thread performance, this is huge news. However, the really big deal is the expected pricing schemes of the new chips. Even though the top tier 8 core, 16 thread chip will cost $499, it’s looking like the entry level one will only cost $319. The 6 core 12 thread variants are ranging from $230-$260 and what I would really deem as the i7 killers are the 4 core 8 thread chips that range from $175 to $199. While Kaby Lake looks like it’s going to maintain it’s single core performan...
