AMD is gearing up to take on Intel with its latest and greatest new ultimate desktop platform – Threadripper. Featuring 16 cores and 32 threads, Ryzen Threadripper is expected to give the same performance as the current high-end Intel products. The Ryzen Threadripper 1998X SKU comes with a base clock of 3.5GHz and a boost clock that goes all the way till 3.9GHz. But it looks like Intel is all set to give AMD Ryzen 7 a reality check. The latest performance benchmarks of Intel’s Core-X Series Core i7-7800X, Core i7-7820X and Core i9-7900X have been leaked and the results show Intel faring better than AMD.

Intel Core i7-7800X vs. AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 6 Core CPU

Intel has already launched monster CPUs – CPUs that are directly targeted at AMD’s Ryzen 9 Threadripper.  The new Intel Core X-series processor family is the ultimate desktop platform, delivering “extreme mega-tasking power for today’s demanding enthusiasts and creatives”. Intel Core X-series processors feature the updated Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, which improves single and dual core performance. Intel claims the Core X-series processor family provides the ideal platform for editing and rendering high-resolution 4K and VR video and effects, with support for fast video transcode, image stabilization, 3D effects rendering and animation.

The Intel Core i7-7800X, though an entry level Skylake X processor, features 6 cores and 12 threads with clock speeds of 3.5GHz and boost clock reaching up to 4.0GHz. The Ryzen 5 1600X also comes with 6 cores and comparing this with 6-core Intel Core i7-7800X makes complete sense. According to benchmark results posted on GeekBench, Intel Core i7-7800X scored 37344 in multi-threading and 6134 in single threading. Compared to this, AMD Ryzen 5 1600X lags behind – at 36061 for multi-threading and 5956 for single threading.

Benchmark results were also leaked for Intel Core i9-7900X, which is the replacement chip for Core i7-6950X. Core i9-7900X scored 6158 points in single threaded test and 57806 points in multi-threaded tests. The Core i7-6950X, on the other hand, scored 5657 points in single threaded test and 53041 points in multi-threaded tests.
