    In-depth Ryzen 7 technical analysis in non-gaming scenarios

    https://forums.anandtech.com/threads...nical.2500572/

    IMPORTANT INFO.

    SMT was not deactivated in many reviews leading to regressions in gaming performance:
    http://i.imgur.com/UFaWvLe.jpg




    The regressions are reasonably noticeable and many review sites are not aware of this.

    Ryzen was also not launched with Windows drivers:

    Quote Originally Posted by Legitreviews guy
    You hit the nail on the head on all your comments. I really wish the Windows drivers were ready before we were given the parts to review. Instead we got a statement 24 hours before launch from AMD saying that they'll be coming in 30 days if all goes well. Game optimizations will be hit or miss when they come, but they appear to be coming. That takes time though and we'll see what happens.
    I put it in the conclusion on the last page. The quote came direct from AMD's John Taylor. There was talk of it coming with Ryzen 5 and then they said 'in the next month' in an official statement that was e-mailed out last night.
    So there might be room for some better performance figures as time progresses.


    Update!!

    The SMT issue is down to Windows 10. It looks like The Stilt has done even more testing:

    https://forums.anandtech.com/threads...#post-38775732


    I did some 3D testing and eventhou there is not nearly enough data to confirm it, I'd say the SMT regression is infact a Windows 10 related issue.
    In 3D testing I did recently on Windows 10, the title which illustrated the biggest SMT regression was Total War: Warhammer.

    All of these were recorded at 3.5GHz, 2133MHz MEMCLK with R9 Nano:

    Windows 10 - 1080 Ultra DX11:

    8C/16T - 49.39fps (Min), 72.36fps (Avg)
    8C/8T - 57.16fps (Min), 72.46fps (Avg)

    Windows 7 - 1080 Ultra DX11:

    8C/16T - 62.33fps (Min), 78.18fps (Avg)
    8C/8T - 62.00fps (Min), 73.22fps (Avg)

    At the moment this is just pure speculation as there were variables, which could not be isolated.
    Windows 10 figures were recorded using PresentMon (OCAT), however with Windows 7 it was necessary to use Fraps.
    http://www.pcgameshardware.de/Ryzen-...eview-1222033/

    It seems the 4C versions which appear to use only one CCX might be fine.

    It looks like Hardware.fr has done some more testing with SMT off.




    But here is the big kicker!!



    They tested in performance mode and found not all the regressions were actually only down to SMT!

    08/03/2017 Update

    Another day another potential issue which might have hampered performance at launch:

    I seriously think with any AMD launch you need +3 months added to the launch to actually get an accurate picture!!

    Re: Ryzen review thread

    My Q: are chiphell going to claim they simply miscalculated the NDA expiry time, or are they going to front up to the fact that they broke embargo by several hours...?

    Boost is probably not fully working on their sample or the CPU might be TDP throttling,as people who bought the R7 1700 are having better CB R15 scores when overclocked:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images...b03b22ef9a.jpg



    Their score is 148 points for the ST benchmark.

    The R7 1700 looks a very decent overclocker:

    1) Cat - 2:30 am ? Are you in Australia ? If not,


    2) That 1700 OCUK article looks very promising. I'm going to give it a month or so and see where the cards fall then. I suspect that Zen may well be the next system
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    I know I'm being *slightly* lazy here by not reading all of the above, but has anyone either done or said they will do a DDR4 speed benchmark with Ryzen?

    Re: Ryzen review thread

    This youtube reviewer only had BF1 benched but ran it at max settings with Shadowplay on:

    The minimum was better on the Ryzen than on the Kabylake, plus the Ryzen had over twice the mins of the FX-8300:

    Despite the slow RAM they used.
    Sort of what you'd expect in a way: more real cores should be great for streaming and background tasks. Problem is that's only one game and most reviewers run on a clean min install with nothing in the background whereas most people have stuff going on in the background (I know some people have kill-all-tasks type batch and change their computer's energy profile each time they game but that's not that common).

    Re: Ryzen review thread

    Anyway,since Ryzen is not only about gaming this review by The Stilt on the none-gaming abilities of Ryzen is probably one of the most in-depth released so far and covers ground many other reviews have not:
