AMD Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X performance revealed at Ryzen Tech Day

VideoCardz just scored another exclusive as the site published two blurry photos that were reportedly taken at the AMD Ryzen Tech Day, a secret press event in San Francisco where AMD is revealing a bunch of details about Ryzen.

First up there's a slide that shows two CineBench results of the the Ryzen 7 1800X, which is expected to retail for around $490. In the multi-threaded test it beats the $1,027 Intel Core i7 6900K by almost 9 percent while in the single-threaded test both chips score a tie.

The second slide reveals the ~$390 Ryzen 7 1700X is much faster than the Core i7-6800 ($409.99) and is capable of outperforming the Core i7 6900K in the multi-threaded CineBench test. The weird thing here is that whoever made this presentation messed up as the "-39%" is incorrect. The correct figure is that the 6800K is roughly 28 percent slower than the Ryzen 7 1700X in this test. Alternatively, you could state the Ryzen 7 1700X is roughly 39 percent faster than the Core i7 6800K.

As with earlier leaks, the performance of Ryzen looks very encouraging but what worries me a bit is that we're seeing the same benchmarks over and over again. There may be some cherry picking going on here...
