The AMD Ryzen 7 Gaming Performance Examined

Spread the love

We have already showed you how fast the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is in 3D rendering and video transcoding. It incinerated the Intel Core i7-6700K in multi-core processing, but proved to be slightly slower in single core processing. Today, we will examine the AMD Ryzen 7 gaming performance in this article!

The AMD Ryzen 7 Gaming Performance Examined


3DMark – Time Spy (DirectX 12)

In the Time Spy DirectX 12 benchmark, the Ryzen 7 1800X was 60% faster than the Core i7-6700K in the CPU test. Obviously, not all of its 8 cores were being used.

  • Ryzen 7 1800X 3DMark Time Spy results

But when it came to the two graphics tests, all that extra boost in CPU performance only gave it a small 0.6% to 1.25% boost in frame rates. The overall DirectX 12 performance improved by 5.7%.


3DMark – Fire Strike (1080p)

We ran the Fire Strike benchmark in the 1080p resolution, because this is the most common resolution gamers use today. The CPU is used exclusively to process Physics, and the Ryzen 7 1800X was 48% faster than the Core i7-6700K.

  • Ryzen 7 1800X 3DMark Fire Strike results

Surprisingly, the Graphics Score was 1.5% lower with the Ryzen 7 1800X, than it was for the Core i7-6700K. The Overall Score though was 3% better with the Ryzen 7 1800X.
