This article aims to specific and extensive in-depth analysis of the Zen architecture has leaked to the market benchmark test information.

Here I refer to the benchmark test refers to the singularity ashes.

I will compare the performance of the Zen architecture with the existing price of Intel chips, from the price, performance and power consumption several objective conclusions.

At the moment, we have good reason to believe that AMD lost this GPU cycle, for the following reasons:

1, the release of the new AMD Fury X series of high-end graphics and its derivatives can only reach a generation of NVIDIA 980Ti led high-end graphics standard. To get even enough to make AMD get a Xichuan machine in the short term, but this situation is only temporary, because the subsequent launch of the new high-end NVIDIA graphics (GTX 1070, GTX 1080) will further discourage people buy high-end GPU any AMD impulse. The result is AMD, rise in the share of high-end GPU market is likely to end in the third quarter of 2016.

2, AMD earlier release of the new mid-range graphics card RX460, RX470, especially RX480, also in the short term slowed the pressure on AMD, which is also reflected in the second quarter and early sales data in the third quarter. But now, NVIDIA launched the corresponding GTX1060 and cheaper derivatives also began to impact the market. These graphics cards not only run faster, and power consumption is lower than AMD RX480, so they will soon dominate the midrange market. In fact, even in the early listing of a little out of stock led to its actual sales price higher than the retailer suggested selling price, these graphics cards have begun to occupy the best-selling selling list of Amazon and other sales channels. So, once again concluded that, in the GPU market share, AMD is doomed to decline in the third quarter of 2016 and the plight of the fourth quarter.

Of course, we can say that the GPU market is only one of the three elements of the fate of AMD, the other two, one is in the short term will not challenge the formation of AMD custom chip business, one is the CPU market.

CPU Market

When it comes to the CPU market, people gave AMD new Zen kernel considerable confidence. With the recent AMD show off its 8 Zen core chip in the bending drawing task to defeat Intel's top 8 6900K core chip, this confidence is overflowing. However, I think we have every reason to doubt whether the chip based on the Zen architecture can hold people's expectations.

These expectations are basically as follows:

1, compared to before based on excavator architecture chip, Zen based chip will be in (single clock cycle command) to improve about 40%.

2, Zen will enable the AMD can be manufactured with peer-to-peer specifications (kernel number and frequency) Intel chip higher chips.

3, Zen can achieve better power efficiency.

These arguments together, concluded that AMD ready to declare war on Intel, if so, Intel will suffer heavy losses.

However, in this article, I will be based on the existing information to come up with why I think the Zen based chip will be disappointing some of the reasons.

Reason - the market assumes that it cannot make assumptions

When we compare the current AMD chip and chip based on Zen architecture, it is so often:

1, my God, look at how fast Zen ah! For example, in the singular ashes benchmark, 8 core Zen chip rate can reach 58, and the same is the eight nuclear AMD FX8350, only reached 42, in this indicator, Zen for up to 38%.

2, usually in this comparison, people also specifically pointed out that "this is just a sample, Zen CPU running at only 2.8GHz/3.2GHz, while running at FX8350 is 4.0/4.2Ghz. So, once the Zen lifting frequency, this performance advantage will be more obvious.

Here is the actual performance of the Zen CPU benchmark.

These arguments sound objective, but wait for conclusions. If you look at the FX8350 competitor, you will find it on the object is actually Core i5 chip.

That's the problem. According to the May 1, 2016 AMD product price list, FX8350 priced at $177, compared with Intel's extensive i5 series chips, i5 series includes $192 i5 $6500. What about i5 6500? Look at this map (in order to avoid the overclocking test, I deliberately chose the benchmark test results, the slowest read the average CPU frame rate):

So basically, even compared with a Intel 4 core and no overclocking chip, Zen chip can only be regarded as approximate rather than beyond. Intel chip price of $192, which means that AMD's 8 core 16 thread chips if the price is significantly higher than the price, will be a great challenge.

Look at the higher price of chips, Intel's i5 6600K, priced at $242, the following is its performance:

Here you can see very obvious differences. Overall, the i5 6600K test results are higher than 33%, and it is only a core of 4 chips of 4 threads.

Intel also i7 6700K this i7 chip, which is a 4 core 8 thread chips. Its price is higher than FX 8350 a lot, priced at $339, but look at its performance.

Overall, it is faster than the Zen architecture 66%, in other words, more money will be able to get a reasonable increase in performance.

Finally, just out of curiosity, we joined Intel's 8 core chips, which is a few generations ago Intel chip. It is Intel in the sale of the 8 core of the 16 threads in one of the cheapest processor: i7-5960X,
