The Ryzen 7 1800X is AMD's flagship Ryzen CPU. Clocked at 3.6 GHz with a turbo frequency of 4.0 GHz (stock) this chip offers a staggering level of multi-core performance. Comparing the 1800X with the Intel i7-6850K shows that the 1800X delivers 25% more multi-core throughput than its more expensive counterpart. Historically AMD's CPU architecture has had a much lower IPC than Intel's and consequently Intel have dominated the CPU market since 2009. Comparing IPC between Intel's Kaby Lake and Ryzen shows a maximum gap of just 9%. A very welcome shake-up of the CPU market will unfold as the remaining Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 models are rolled out. For now the 1800X offers workstation users similar processing power to a $1,000 i7-6900K at half the price. [Mar '17 CPUPro]

In terms of raw single-core performance the flagship AMD FX-8350 is lagging behind intel's processor line-up by over two generations. The PassMark Single Thread scores for the i5-2500K vs the FX-8350 are 1863 to 1520 which shows that in terms of raw per-core processing the FX-8350 is lagging the two year old i5 by 23%. Where the AMD FX makes up is on multi-core performance, with a score of 9156 vs 6745, the AMD leads the Intel 2500K by 36% making it the far more capable multi-threaded server orientated performer. The AMD is also cheaper but significantly more power hungry which counts strongly against it as a sever proposition. The FX-8350 could be a good fit for specific server use cases but for general consumer use, which is single and dual core intensive, Intel's two year old i5-2500K delivers better performance. [May '13 CPUPro]
