Performance Changes from Days Gone By

TechSpot and Phoronix have been looking at the performance changes we have seen in AMD and Intel processors of days gone by as well as current generation processors and how they have been dealing with the performance penalties associated with various security updates.   You can skip below to check out Epyc and Threadripper, or you can visit Techspot to see how the Ryzen 7 1800X and Intel Core i7-7700K now compare. 

They test the two processors at their stock speeds as well as with their best overclock, which puts the Core i7 at 4.2/4.7GHz and the Ryzen 7 at 3.6/4.0GHz.  The results are as expected, with AMD taking the lead in multithreaded performance while Intel holds the lead in single threaded applications.  Check out their review for the full results.

With 3rd-gen Ryzen set to hit stores very soon, we're warming up to that launch by revisiting some heated CPU battles from the past couple of years that can bring further context to current owners of these processors. Today's battle is between the first-gen Ryzen 7 1800X flagship and Intel's competing Core i7­-7700K quad-core.

    Good re-review, their conclusion is about the same as it was 2yrs ago, that the 7600K was a bit faster, but the two extra cores on the 1600 meant it would scale better for future uses: as it has.
