    AMD showed Blender and Handbrake demos recently and the 8C, 16T Ryzen barely edged the similarly clocked 8C, 16T Intel i7-6900K.

    What are your expectations? Finally some competition?

    If they launch budget 6c that can match i5 6600K (stock), then im all up for them.
    For gaming, that much is enough for 1440p ultra

    Re: Will AMD Ryzen live up to the hype?

    so, how much performance Ryzen should pack to be considered a success? or competitive?

    in general their cpus should perform to the extent where people can thing them as options to the intel counterpart.

    amd cpus currently lag behind a lot in core specific performance & rely a lot on their multi core performance. also,that hunger for power, in the long run it just costs a lot more than intel to run an amd cpu.

    so far they have only compared at the top end category. so, need to wait and see. but as usual, not expecting much, may be next time i will end up buying another intel.....

    AMD is not at all bad. Actually Intel is bribing to put AMD down I think they are bribing benchmark software authors to be on top.I my self have used two AMD system one is ancient athlon XP 2400+ and other one Athlon X4 445 They both are performing well.

    There is no heating issues in my Athlon X4 445 it always runs around 33 to 40C and performance is far better than my laptop with i5 4200 i can easily tell my AMD athlon X4 is lightning fast it boots up very fast mutlitasking is brilliant.

    My laptop can only able to run upto 4 VMs that too with 8GB RAM while i can simultaneously run 6VMs with AMD athlon X4 with 5GB of RAM.

    There are some article over Internet stating Intel are bribing to get in top in benchmarks.

    Read these

    Eh. The laptop CPUs are much weaker than their desktop counterparts. Wrong comparison.

    Re: Will AMD Ryzen live up to the hype?

    Intel i5 4200 doesn't performs like Athlon X4 445 or close and yeah its a very old CPU but see this Intel Core i5 4200U vs AMD Athlon II X3 44

    Lol! According to that site Intel i5 is winner.

    AMD CPUs aren't all bad. But AMD do have a history of hyping up products and then disappointing. I would wait for reviews to come out with concrete benchmarks and how they price them. Till then all we can do is speculate.

    Re: Will AMD Ryzen live up to the hype?

    I could tell you weren't saying the whole thing. First of all cpuboss is not a site to refer to. And it's taking power consumption and graphics processing(AMD has none) into account. Hence the much higher score for i5.

    A proper comparison:
    PassMark - CPU Performance Compariso

    The overall performance of i5 you are getting is probably bottle-necked by the laptop's other low power components like slower RAM.

    Now see how it compares to a desktop class processor of the same generation

    Read the comments in the article. Those benchmarks are fake.

    Re: Will AMD Ryzen live up to the hype?

    You didn't get my point AMD X4 was in production in year 2010 while Intel i5 4210U was in production in 2014 still there is no significant performance difference between them and actually AMD x4 beat i5 by 500 points.

    I actually bought my AMD X3 based system for 20k while i spent 47k and even though i spent twice the amount of AMD X3 system it is not worth it only positive about my laptop is portability.

    Finally my point is even though i5 is costlier and has done better in benchmarks its still inferior to my old AMD athlon X3 in real world performance i feel my AMD X3 system is far snappier than i5 4210u
