AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Processor Beats Benchmark Records

Why AMD’s Growth Story Came to a Halt

Running the AMD Ryzen 5 chip at the base clock speed of about 129.79MHZ along with a 25.5X multiplier also saw a record-setting quite unbeatable. As previously thought, this source claims that Intel is bringing the launch forward by a few months after mounting pressure from AMD's Ryzen architecture, which will soon roll out to HEDT chips as well.

The Skylake-X processors would have three 6, 8 and 10-core versions with a consumption of 140 watts, while the Kaby Lake-X series would have quad-core processors with a consumption of 112 watts.

As for the 14nm-based Coffee Lake-based processors, Intel will initially release several K-series Core i7/i5/i3 processors and its Z370 chipsets in August, and will release more CPUs as well as H370, B360 and H310 chipsets at the end of 2017 or early 2018.

One of the possible causes of this is the fact that the Ryzen7 uses a completely new architecture, and the available programs and games are not optimized for it. Intel's Core architecture, on the other hand, has been in market for years, and software developers know how to optimize their products for it.

Apple is rumored to have new machines in the works for 2017, including new iMacs, which are likely to use Kaby Lake chips. These will still be manufactured on the 14nm process, becoming the fourth 14nm generation. It's expected to deliver marginal performance improvements, possibly similar to the ones Intel gained from Kaby Lake. It's also rumored Intel's Coffee Lake chips will include more cores, giving the company a six-core ordinary desktop part for the first time ever. But now the launch will happen months before the original date in August 2017. Coffee Lake will be the primary CPU aimed at mainstream PCs, and its release was pushed to 2018. Earlier this year, Intel began tweaking its hierarchy by with the release of the first overclockable Core i3 CPU and a Pentium-tier chip with Hyper-Threading. On another note Benchlife has mentioned that Intel might integrate USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) and Gigabit Wi-Fi into the 300 series chipset, which would certainly be a very nice addition.
