*Testing by AMD Performance labs as of March 3, 2017 on the following systems: Socket AM4: Ryzen™ 7 1700 processor, with NVIDIA GTX 1070 6 GB graphics adapter 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 RAM, Windows 10 RS2operating system, Graphics driver :: 12/11/2016 Socket 1151: Z270 SLI, Core i7-7700K processor, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics adapter, 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 RAM, Windows 10 RS2operating system, Graphics driver :: 12/11/2016. Compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Core i7-7700K achieved 73% the video encoding performance in Handbrake and 87% the performance in Adobe Premiere CC, for an average video encoding performance of 80% relative to the Ryzen 7 1700. Content Creation: Compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Core i7-7700K achieved 70% the performance in POVRay, 74% the performance in Blender, and 69% the performance in Cinebench, for an average content creation performance of 71% relative to the Ryzen 7 1700. Simultaneous Game Streaming: The Ryzen 7 1700 dropped less than 1% of frames, while the Core i7-7700K dropped 18% of frames VR Performance: Both the Ryzen 7 1700 and Core i7-7700K dropped less than 1% of frames in the Price of Freedom, Serious Sam, and Raw Data game benchmark tests. Results are estimates only. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. PC manufacturers may vary system configurations yielding different results. RZN-37

***Power efficiency of consumer client desktop 8-core processors based on Cinebench R15 nT score divided by wall power watts during testing. Scores: 1410 (AMD Ryzen 7 1700) vs. 1473 (Core i7-6900K). System config: AMD Reference Motherboard (1800X) and ASUS STRIX X99 Gaming (6900K), 16GB DDR4-2400, NVIDIA Titan X (Pascal), graphics driver, Windows 10 x64 RS1. Measured system wall power during testing: 115W (1700) vs. 142W (6900K). Power efficiency: 1410/115=12.26 points per watt (1700) vs. 1473/142W=10.37 points per watt (6900K). Result: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 offers 18.22% more performance per watt. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RZN-10

† Testing by AMD Performance labs as of 12/21/2017 on the following system. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Results may vary based on driver versions used. System Configs:  AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, GA-AX370 AORUS Gaming 5 motherboard, 16GB of dual-channel DDR3-3200,  Graphics driver 23.20.768.0 (17.40), and a Seagate Barracuda 500GB boot drive.  When Enmotus FuzeDrive was enabled,  a Samsung 950 PRO NVMe drive was added to the drive pool. Without enmotus FuzeDrive for Ryzen, the system took 28.611 seconds to complete a boot to windows via explorer; 21.421 seconds to initialize SMSS; 2.274 seconds to initialize the Windows Logon; 56.04 seconds to launch adobe premiere; 59.27 seconds to launch adobe photoshop; and 85.09 seconds to launch DOOM. With Enmotus FuzeDrive for Ryzen enabled, the system took 10.534 seconds to complete a boot to windows via explorer (28.611/10.534=272%, or 172% faster); 3.926 seconds to initialize SMSS (21.421/3.926=546%, or 446% faster); 1.461 seconds to initialize the Windows Logon (2.274/1.461=156%, or 56% faster); 8.27 seconds to launch adobe premiere (56.04/8.27=678%, or 578% faster); 5.75 seconds to launch adobe photoshop (59.27/5.75=1031%, or 931% faster); and 38.77 seconds to launch DOOM (59.27/38.77=219%, or 119% faster).
