The outcome has been divided

Now, unless AMD can come up with some measures, we can already assert that although Zen CPU than its previous generation products to improve a lot, it is only partially offset the gap with low-end Intel i5 chips.

Some people would say, "but the singularity does not really represent the advantages of multithreading," which is only half right because:

Intel's i7 5960X (same 8 core 16 thread) can still reflect the advantages of lower cost i5 series chips, and i5 itself has been significantly better than the Zen architecture CPU.

Most of the applications running will be not open too many threads, so even if it is limited in the benchmark, in the practical application of the performance is basically the same.

The market was optimistic that the Zen architecture CPU can finally make AMD off to compete with 8 core processors and quad core Intel products hat, because more kernel means cost economy worse (yield lower chip area, more and more expensive), can be used in the quad core premise the performance of the same nature is a very desirable behavior.

Unfortunately, the singularity ash benchmark results show that AMD does not achieve the goal of reducing the number of cores. AMD still have to use 8 core products and Intel quad core i5 system products (and even no hyper threading) competition.

Power waste

It is generally believed that now AMD can rely on Zen architecture to achieve competitive energy efficiency, which in itself may be a mystery like trust. The reasons are as follows:

There are two Zen architectures with leaked information showing runtime power consumption of 95W and 65W CPU. 8 core 95W chip, clocked at 2.8/3.2GHz, it is in the singularity ash benchmark test to see that.

The reason why people have Zen CPU architecture to establish the idea of competitiveness in terms of power consumption, part of the reason is seen in the relatively curved rendering task, here is the power consumption of 95W Zen CPU, there is a 140W i7 6900K. However:

1, run in 3GHz main frequency Zen architecture CPU total design power consumption will not be 95W;

2, from a historical point of view, the total design power consumption AMD higher than Intel;

3, as mentioned earlier, Intel to do this test i7 6900K is down frequency run below the reference frequency, and the prohibition of the Rui frequency acceleration. In this condition the operation of the chip with rated total design power consumption of the performance of the chip is very large, to accelerate the 3.7GHz to achieve the rated total design power consumption.

In 4, the singularity ashes test, Zen CPU architecture underlying Intel CPU is the total design of power consumption is only 65W i5 6500;

5, Intel i7 6700K, the total design power is not large, 91W, in the benchmark in the Zen shame leading up to 66% injured all over the body.

What does this mean? This shows that from the power point of view, Zen architecture CPU does not seem competitive.

So what progress has AMD made in energy efficiency? Well, compared to yourself, it does progress. For example, we see Zen finished abuse FX8350, FX8350 total design power consumption of 125W, so AMD not only improve in performance a lot, in terms of energy efficiency is also quite large. This problem can be summed up in one sentence: between AMD and Intel, the gap is too big, so even if the AMD Zen architecture than before the product upgrade a lot, but the improvement is still not enough to make up the gap, or not enough to bring their own.

conclusion

In the singular ashes test, compared with their FX8350, Zen architecture CPU AMD has made great progress on the performance and power consumption, performance increased by 38%, compared with the total design power (actually less reliable), power consumption is reduced by 24%.

However, despite the obvious progress, AMD's Zen architecture CPU still lags behind Intel's existing products (not to mention Intel will launch a new product in 2017). Zen possible cost close to FX8350, Intel similar cost product is i5 6500, in the benchmark test it can still win the 8 core of the 16 thread Zen architecture CPU, while obviously can consume less power consumption.

Do not mention those Intel fever (and expensive) product line, many existing i5 and i7 products can simultaneously significantly outperform Zen CPU in performance and power consumption, and the price is not very high.

The main argument for AMD is that as long as Zen does well enough it can roll over, not the best. But if these benchmarks are representative of the singularity ash, we can say that the progress made by Zen is obvious, but it is not good enough. This is a major risk for AMD - yes, Zen is much better than previous products, but still not good enough.

Here, one thing is for sure, Zen seems to have no rumor so good, not enough to improve AMD ASP (average selling price), because although it has made great progress, but still higher than the standard FX8350 sorry the price of the product. 4 core Zen may also experience the same encounter.

When Intel released a new product, AMD Zen will be more stretched, after all, Zen is not listed.

All in all, AMD did well, but its latest GPU and CPU seem to have made no progress enough to recapture significant market share.
