At the recent Taipei Computer Show, Intel announced that its 10-nm process was based on a Sunny Cove-based desktop processor, claiming 18% improvement over its predecessor IPC (not to mention the next generation).
In AMD, the new generation of ZEN 2 architecture of the Ruilong 3000 series processors, due to major changes in the architecture (especially the L3 cache capacity doubled), in IPC has also increased by more than 15%.
So are these two published figures moist? On the eve of NDA, a classmate of AMD China Forum announced the single-core performance of three Ryzen 3000 series processors and two Intel 10nm processors under CPU-Z, so that we can get a glimpse of the performance of these new processors coming on the market.
As can be seen from the figure above, the RYLON 7 3800X has been overclocked to 4.7GHz, but its CPU-Z single-core performance is higher than that of 5.2GHz i7-7700K, and the gap between RYLON 7 3800X and 5.3GHz i7-9700K is very small.
In addition, two Ryzen 3000 processors, Sharon 7 3700X at 4.6GHz, CPU-Z single-core performance test reached 622 points, while Sharon 5 3600X at 4.5GHz also had 609 points, higher than 5GHz i9-9900K.
On Intel's side, the performance of three processors has also been exposed. One 8-core 8-threaded Comet Lake processor has 640 CPU-Z single-core performance after over-frequency to 5.2 GHz, still less than the same 8-C8T 5.3 GHz i7-9700K. So, Intel's next generation of desktop processors are not surprising in terms of performance.
However, Intel's Ice Lake processor has a good performance. The 4C8T Core i7-1065G7 processor has 639 CPU-Z single-core performance, while the other version of the ES version of the 6C12T Ice Lake processor also has 630. At present, it is not known what the maximum runaway frequencies of these processors are, but their single-core performance is no better than that of the 5.2GHz i7-7700K. Therefore, it can be inferred that the Ice Lake processors are either very high runaway frequencies (over 5GHz) or that IPC has a very significant improvement, and can have the same performance as the 5.2GHz up-generation processors on the 4.5GHz runaway.
Of course, if you want to know the performance of the next generation of processors, wait till July 7.
