Futuremark 3DMark Sky DIver, FireStike and TimeSpy benchmarks of AMD Ryzen 1800X

In this test, we compare the processor with our existing Z270 and Z170 system running the Core i5-7600K (Z270) and Core i7-6700K (Z170) with a set of Gigabyte GeForce GTX1060 graphics card.

Sky Diver is a DX11 test running at 1080P. 3DMark Time Spy is a DX12 benchmark test for Gaming PCs. It renders at 2560 x 1440. Fire Strike is a test on high performance gaming PCs. It renders at 4K UHD 3840 X 2160. It is the most demanding tests among the three.

First let’s take a look at Sky Diver. The numbers are pretty decent  with the AMD Ryzen running way ahead of an Intel Core i7-6700K by almost 13%. When overclocked, it reaches 35044, 26% faster than the Intel Core i7-6700K.

When it comes to Time Spy, it seems that there is some bottleneck and performance is on par with a Core i5-7600K.  When overclocked, it managed to squeeze more to attain 4561, a 100 points above the 6700K.

When it comes to Fire Strike, the most demanding benchmark, it seems that we face a similar situation. The AMD Ryzen 1800X perform slightly better when overclocked as compared to the Core i7-6700K.

It seems that when the bottleneck lies with the graphics card as we can see a better score when running it at 1080P.
