"There’s a new leaked benchmark for AMD’s Ryzen (née Zen), and it shows a CPU core that’s capable of slugging it out with the upper-end of Intel’s product line in a way that no AMD chip has in nearly five years. This is the closest we’ve come to third-party metrics for how Zen will perform — past leaks have either focused on single tests like Ashes of the Singularity or have been official, carefully controlled demos of the chip by AMD itself.

This data comes from French tech magazine Canard PC, which managed to test an engineering sample CPU with a base clock of 3.15GHz and a boost clock of 3.3GHz. That’s below the 3.4GHz base clock that AMD has promised for top-end Ryzen cores, so if we assume a modest boost clock of 3.6GHz it means final test results should be somewhat higher than what we see below."
