      AMD Ryzen 5 1600 vs Intel Core i7-7800X: 30 Game Battle! - TechSpot

       

      After comparing Intel's new Core i7-7800X and AMD's Ryzen 5 1600 in productivity workloads, we're back by popular request to learn whether Intel still takes the cake when it comes to high-end gaming.

      This wouldn't be a proper showdown without at least two dozen games so we've included 30 for good measure, all of which were played on the GTX 1080 Ti at 1080p. Being that there's no point in using GPU-limited scenarios to gaming performance of CPUs, we didn't feel the need to gather results for 1440p or 4K.

      1. Tomb Raider, Ashes of the Singularity, Far Cry, The Division
      2. Hitman, Quantum Break, Overwatch, Doom
      3. Warhammer, Mirror's Edge, F1 2016, Deus Ex
      4. Battlefield 1, Mafia III, Gears of War 4, Titanfall 2
      5. Civilization VI, Dishonored 2, Resident Evil 7
      6. For Honor, Ghost Recon, Mass Effect, Dawn of War III
      7. Watch Dogs 2, Prey, Dirt 4

      Both the i7-7800X and R5 1600 systems were configured with DDR4-3200 CL14 memory, however, the Intel system was equipped with 32GB whereas the Ryzen system only had 16GB. Please note that this shouldn't impact the results and for whatever it's worth, there's a reason why I've done this: I don't have a 32GB 3200MHz kit yet that works with Ryzen.

      As we proceed, it's worth keeping in mind that the 7800X currently costs $415 (but has an MSRP of $390) while the 1600 is retailing for just $215, so almost half the price, not to mention that the AM4 platform also costs significantly less than Intel's LGA2066.
