lol I highly doubt this is right my 1800X is only 34% worse. I would be very Impressed if that was true. I know its not out yet but I would expect better performance. (wouldn't really rate it before it come out to be honest)

1800X is 8C/16T, this CPU is is 16C/32T and obviously is way more expensive than R7 1800X. If I guess it, about $1800 (I don't know exact pricing) top while 1800X is only $459.
So I assume it is better than your CPU due to having more cores.

He was saying he thought that the 1800x would be more than 34% worse than the 7960x.

The CPU is NOT released, so GD tools are inaccurate… never use any comparison tools for unreleased or brand new hardware, NOT only GD's.
