Leaked Blender benchmark shows some more AMD Zen performance

eTeknix reports there's another AMD Zen benchmark score doing the rounds. Tested in the Blender benchmark and compared to server chips from Intel, the prototype performs on-par with the Intel Xeon E5 2680 v2, a three-year old Intel Ivy Bridge-E processor with 10 cores and 20 threads. There's no word about the chip's specifications so it's hard to compare. With Zen expected to launch a couple of months from now, hopefully more detailed benchmarks will start leaking soon.
So far, the leaks we’ve gotten have pointed to Zen clocking about 3.6 Ghz max for their ES chips. If this is the 8 core variant, this means AMD has managed to pass Ivy Bridge in terms of IPC. This is somewhat expected as AMD previously showed an 8 core 16 thread Zen chip in Blender beating out an 8 core 16 thread Broadwell-E chip at the same clock speed. This new leak adds extra credence to AMD’s claims about 40% IPC uplift compared to Excavator.
