AMD and Intel have been in a tough competition throughout decades with their CPUs. From 60's to the age of high-end contents both of them have continued their rivalry with their potential processors. The war for striving the best position has recently been boosted up with AMD's latest Ryzen series against Intel's newest Kabylake masterpieces. Let's check out who has been able to qualify as the better warrior than other in this wide race.
According to PC Magazine, some trustworthy benchmarking test has proved AMD Ryzen 7, the highest of the series till now, as far more improved than Intel Kabylake's eldest i7-7700K processor. In terms of specification, Ryzen 7 1800X model sports 8 Cores and 16 threads and boasts a base clock speed 3.6 GHZ which can be turned up to 4.0 GHz. On the contrary, Intel's i7-7700K comes with 4 Cores and 8 threads having a normal clock speed of 4.2 GHz which can be boosted up to 4.5 GHz.
But Intel goes much short to AMD in terms of its performance. For instance, while AMD Ryzen 7, made with AMD's latest Zen architecture, accounts 18,611 performance ratings while being multi-threaded, Intel's Kabylake architecture based i7-7700K model achieves only 9,542 points in multi-threading test, which is nearly half of the former.
As per another report by PC World, AMD Ryzen family's latest member: Ryzen 5 clinches very close competition with Intel Kabylake family's i5 processors. The most powerful component of AMD Ryzen 5 series: 1600X variant comes with 6 cores and 12 threads packed with a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz which can be marked up to 4.1 GHz having an L3 Cache of 16 MB.
At the same context, Intel i5-7600k boasts 4 cores and 4 threads coupled with 3.8 GHz nominal clock speed with upgrading capacity up to 4.2 GHz. Its sports L3 Cache of 6 MB only. Again, AMD Ryzen 5 beats Intel Kabylake i5 in multithreading test with better SMT scores.
Besides all these, in terms of high-end gaming also AMD Ryzen series reflects better capacity than Intel Kabylake. Due to better multithreading capability, AMD Ryzen 7 & 5 can evolve greater & flawless gaming experience than Intel Kabylake i7 & i5 processors securing less processing heat. Ryzen 5 1600X comes with a price tag of $249 whereas, currently Intel Kabylake i5-7600k is selling at $250 only.
