AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 6-Core Benchmarks Leak, Zen Part Number Decoder Detailed

If you thought the Ryzen hype train might start to slow down after weeks of leaks and rumors, think again. The closer we get to Ryzen's release (likely early March, with a possible announcement on February during AMD's Capsaicin event at GDC 2017), the juicier the leaks, it seems. Case in point, the latest bit of Ryzen news involves some interesting benchmarks of the Ryzen 5 1600X 6-core processor.

A quick recap is in order before we get to the numbers. AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X is one of 17 Ryzen SKUs AMD is expected to launch. The entire lineup will consist of 4-core, 6-core, and 8-core processors spread out between Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 7 series. There will be eight Ryzen 5 processors evenly split between 4-core and 6-core processors. The Ryzen 5 1600X is the fastest of the 6-core lineup—it has a 3.3GHz base clockspeed and a 3.7GHz boost, along with 3MB of L2 cache.

With the launch being so close, it's a reasonable assumption that several Ryzen processors are out in the wild, hence today's round of leaked benchmarks. These results emerged on a Chinese-language web forum. One of them shows performance metrics from CPU-Z's built-in benchmarking utility. As you can see in the screenshot above, the chip is running with a core voltage of 0.374v. We can also observe that the processor's boost clock kicked in, with the CPU ramping up to 3.56GHz.

The Ryzen 5 1600X scored 1,888 in single-threaded performance and 12,544 in multi-threaded. Those are sort of meaningless numbers by themselves so we fired up the same benchmark and ran it with Intel's Core i7-5960X, an 8-core Haswell-E chip clocked at 3GHz to 3.5GHz; an older Core i7-4970K, a 4-core Devil's Canyon (Haswell) chip clocked at 4GHz to 4.4GHz; a Core i7-4960X, a 6-core Ivy Bridge-E processor clocked at 3.6GHz to 4GHz; and and a Core i7-6900K, an 8-core CPU clocked at 3.2GHz to 3.7GHz. To flesh things out, we also included a validated benchmark run from an Intel Core i7-5930K (6-core Haswell-E, 3.5GHz to 3.7GHz) that appears in CPU-Z's database, as it matches the Ryzen 5 1600X in core count and clockspeed.Here's how things shook out:
