AMD Ryzen Release Date & Update: Benchmark Out For Ashes Of The Singularity Shows 4GHz Turbo Clock Speed [Video]
Ashes of the singularity benchmarks of an AMD Ryzen sample, which is clocked at 3.6 GHz and 4.0 GHz turbo was recently posted on the AotS database. As always, they were also quickly pulled but not before some watchful internet users managed to save a screen grab of the benchmark. AotS benchmarks is one of the more reliable baseline benchmarks for gamers
Actually, someone who has access to AMD's upcoming Ryzen lineup has decided to leak some benchmarks of the CPU. A new brand of sample from the said upcoming AMD CPU has continuously appeared on the internet using the prefix "ZD" for a while now. Nevertheless, the most recent leak has the actual name AMD Ryzen. Henceforth, it could be the latest revision of Ryzen which would also be the finished product to ship within the first quarter of 2017.
According to WccFtech, for this particular benchmark, it is revealed that the it was Ryzen 8 core - 16 threads variant which has Hyper Threading enabled. The GPU used was a NVIDIA GeForce TITAN-X so this leak does not shoot from AMD labs, somewhat some third party - probably a reviewer or even an AIB. Finally, the sample is clocked at 3.6GHz/4GHz as can be seen from the suffix at the end and has very imposing performance in the 4K preset.
According to reports, the benchmark's uploader goes by the name AMD_FanBoy. And judging by the screen-grabbed image, this specific Ryzen CPU has Hyper Threading enabled. This means that AMD will not skip the 8-core version after all.
The benchmark was seen running at the 'Crazy' 4K preset and, the average CPU frame rate from the three tests is 70.5 frames per second. You can make various comparisons by looking at other public benchmarks in the AoTS database. Under these conditions, an AMD Ryzen CPU with a decent overclock can be comparable to Intel's i7-6900, a $1,000 CPU, in improved situations.
