Suddenly out of the blue an AMD Ryzan 8 core sample CPU’s information related to its performance tests has been leaked by some clever chap claiming to be in close touch with the development process. Recently we witnessed information regarding the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark scores related to AMD Ryzen 3.6 GHz and 4.0 GHz Turbo CPU samples were leaked online on AotS. As expected, the information was quickly taken off from the online portal but some enthusiasts managed to get the screenshots of the accidentally leaked benchmark information before it could be pulled from the database. Reliability of the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark scores in unparalleled when it comes to gaming. AotS benchmark scores are to gaming what geekbench scores are to computers.
AMD Ryzen 8 / 16 Core CPU Scores On Ashes Of The Singularity Benchmark Leak
Screenshots of the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark for Ryzen 8 core and 16 core were saved and posted online before they were taken down from an online blog. Ryzen samples are gaining more traction in news with every passing day. Recently released Ryzem samples came with the prefix ZD. This prefix is at odds with the previous samples that came with the ES samples. Moreover, these new samples have AMD Ryzen mentioned in their titles giving us a reason to believe that the latest version of Ryzen CPUs are getting ever so close to the imminent launch, perhaps even within next couple of quarters. Latest benchmark scores were posted under the profile name AMD_FanBoy on AotS web portal, however, they have been pulled off. Luckily, people at PCShooping forums succeeded in taking screenshots of the benchmark results.
But there are some points that are needed to be mentioned here. Therefore, i am going to share some of my observations after analyzing various discussion trends on online forums and let you decide what you make of this new leaked benchmark result of AMD Ryzen CPU with 8 & 16 cores. First thing that’s worth mentioning in this regard is that the GPU is titled TITAN-X, which lends credence to the speculations that the origin of the leaked information is not AMD but some third-party source. Another important bit of information that that can be seen in the suffix at the end of leaked screenshot image above relates to the GPU clock speed at 3.6 Ghz & 4 GHz when rendered at 4K level, which is no mean feat in any way.
Hardware geeks would be familiar with the fact that the fundamental obstacle that comes in the way of bringing about a stable overclock speed on all GPU cores is linked more closely to the essential attributes of the motherboard than the processor’s power capacity. We saw this issue with the ability of VRMs on the previous samples of ES motherboards where samples struggled to attain and sustain a stable over clock speed on consistent basis. However, if a single core manages to hit 5 GHz while discounting the electromigration effect, then we can expect all other cores to overclock at 3.8 GHz all the way up to 4 GHz provided a decent high-end cooler and a polished Ryzen processor accompanies the entire unit. We can predict with confidence that a single Ryzen chip with respectable overclock speed should be able to deliver decent performance, so much so that it can perhaps match or even surpass the levels of performance associated with Intel i7-6900 chips.
In short, if the benchmark scores as seen in the leaked screenshots are to be believed, it will be a good sign for the Zen builds tipped for released next year. Furthermore, this latest round of leaks also points towards AMD’s prospects of staging a promising return to the computing business. Perhaps it would be overly optimistic on our part to expect too much from Ryzen gaming-wise solely because most games are not designed to take advantage of extra threads and depend mainly on high clocking speeds. If the reports regarding pricing are true, we can get same Intel level performance from Ryzen at half the price. Ryzen would be extremely efficient in running app such as rendering, server/enterprise farms. Do share thoughts on this story in the comments section below.
