Clock Speeds

Was going to upgrade to the Ryzen until I saw the slow clock speeds. I work with AutoCAD and SketchUp witch still only use one processor. Look's like when I do upgrade I will have to switch over to Intel to get a faster clock speed. Unless I here somthing different?

Re: Clock Speeds

It's not the clock speed which is the most important factor, it's the instructions per clock (IPC) capability which is. Take the FX-8350 vs the 1800X.The 8350 is clocked 400mhz faster, yet the 1800X is 45% faster per core.
