Let’s compare the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processor with its direct competitor, the Intel Core i7-8700K. Let’s see how many points the processors separate from the two opposing brands, be it single-core or multi-core, thanks to the Geekbench 4 software.
|Processor||Geekbench 4 single core and multi-core|
|AMD Ryzen 7 2700X|| 4753
|Intel Core i7-8700K|| 5760
The price may vary over time and it does not include the cost of sending the package.
We see that AMD is doing better than Intel on the multi-core. Intel’s performance continues to deteriorate after the last micro-code updates with the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. On the other hand, it will take at least two more generations for AMD to catch up on the single core. That is to say Zen 2+ or Zen 3 if necessary.
