***Testing by AMD Performance labs. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Power efficiency of consumer client desktop 8-core processors based on Cinebench R15 nT score divided by wall power watts during testing. Scores: 1133 (AMD Ryzen 7 1600) vs. 1158 (Core i7-6850K). Measured system wall power during testing: 124W (1600) vs. 139.5W (6850K). Power efficiency: 1133/124=9.13 points per watt (1600) vs. 1158/139W=8.33 points per watt (6850K). Result: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 offers 9% more performance per watt. Specifications: The AMD Ryzen 5 1600 has a thermal design power (TDP) of 65 Watts; The Intel Core i7-6850K, Intel’s lowest-power 6-core processor, has a thermal design power (TDP) of 140 Watts. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RZN-37
