We benchmark the system based on default settings running the memory at DDR4-2933. The X1800 run at 3.6 GHz by default and will boost to 4 GHz automatically. The Windows 10 power options were also turned to High Performance.

For overclocking, the CPU multiplier is set to 40x. The multiplier can be pushed up by a factor of 0.25 steps. Unfortunately setting to 40.25 boots but is unstable during benchmarking. 40X is the maximum we can achieve.

The rest are as follows (as screen in BIOS video)

Vcore 1.4V
Vcore SOC 1.2375V
CPU VDD18 1.84V
DRAM 1.36V
CPU Vcore Loadline Calibration set to HIGH

The graphics card used in the tests is the Gigabyte GeForce 1060 GTX

Cinebench R15 benchmarks of Ryzen 1800X

CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. The test scenario uses all of your system’s processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral “No Keyframes” animation by AixSponza).

This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all available processor cores of up to 256 processor threads.

This test scene contains approximately 2,000 objects which in turn contain more than 300,000 polygons in total, and uses sharp and blurred reflections, area lights, shadows, procedural shaders, antialiasing, and much more. The result is displayed in points (pts). The higher the number, the faster your processor.

The tests were done a few times to get a consistent score.  In this benchmark, it scores 1624 points which is higher than a 12C/24T Intel Xeon X5650.

How does it compare to other processors? Below is a chart that shows the  performance against mid to high end Intel processors. When overclocked to 4GHz, the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X reaches 1742 points which is close to a 6950X. Even without overclocking it already overtook a 6900K.

In a single core test, it scored 154 CB which is also ranked the 2nd highest in Cinebench R15  benchmark comparison chart.
