AMD x86 Zen Blender Benchmarks Equivalent To 10-Core Intel Xeon E5 Chip
AMD Zen Blender benchmarks have popped up at Blenchmark.com and although this source is not widely known there are some impressive numbers to be seen here. These AMD Zen Blender benchmarks were discovered by a reddit user. We can see some impressive numbers but there is no way of knowing the variant that has been tested here.
That is unfortunate but according to these numbers it seems that the AMD Zen model has the performance equal to that of a 10-Core Intel Xeon E5 chip, which is very impressive indeed.
AMD will be shippping Zen variants ranging from 8 cores to 32 cores. That is why not being able to identify the specific model in this case is a bummer because if the processor used in these AMD Zen Blender benchmarks is a 8 core variant then the performance is very good but if it is in fact the 32 core version then not so much. But think of it this way, if this is indeed an 8 core CPU then this will blow away the competition that is available in the market as of right now.
The only thing that will be the deal breaker here is the price point. Though AMD chips are relative cheaper as compared to Intel offering, at this performance level it will be no surprise if the trend does not continue. If the performance is what these AMD Zen Blender benchmarks state then it is most likely that AMD will be charging a premium for these processors.
As the AMD Zen Blender benchmarks were run on Windows 2008 Server R2 64 bit edition it is likely that this CPU is aimed at the server market and the average consumer will not be able to get their hands on one. What do you think about these AMD Zen Blender benchmarks?
