Ryzen R7 vs Skylake-X in Battlefield 1 (1700 versus 7800X)

Ryzen R7 vs Skylake-X in Battlefield 1

Disclamer: The Ryzen benches are over a month old.

 

The setup(s): I7 7800X, MSI X299 Tomhawk, 2x8GB Corsair Vengance 3200 mhz, 1080Ti, AX1500I, Samsung 840 Pro, Windows 10

 

R7 1700, X370 Crosshair 6, 2x8GB Corsair Vengance 3200 mhz, 1080Ti, AX1500I, Samsung 840 Pro, Windows 10

 

I tested first Ryzen on the map in Battlefield called "Soissons". Later I tested the SK-X setup on some other maps. Someone said I needed to test the same map as performance may vary, and they were right..

The Ryzen setup was clocked at 3850 mhz which was the max 24/7 OC I could do.. The memory was set to 2933 as the Ryzen would not post with the default 3200. The GPU was at 2050/+500 mem.

The 7800X was clocked at 4700 which is not the max 24/7 OC. But a nice clockspeed considering powerdraw, voltage and temperatures. The memory was set at 3200 mhz. GPU was also at 2050/+500 on mem. 

 

Both systems are identical expect the motherboard/CPU. Both systems were under custom water.

 

Results are on a 64 players conquest on the map called "Sessions" (Which is a lighter resource demanding map to play on IMHO..)

 

I7 7800X: Min FPS 114 - Max FPS 173 - Avg FPS 141 - 64 players Conquest on Soissons - Ultra preset - 1440P

 

R7 1700: MIN FPS 91 - Max FPS 174 - Avg FPS 115 - 64 players Conquest on Soissons - Ultra preset - 1440P

 

I've owned 3470 - 4670K - 4770K - 5820K - 5960X - 4790K - 6700K - 7700K - 1700 - 7800X.

I am open to answer any questions you might have. I sold the Ryzen system a few days ago. So can't do any more test on the Ryzen system. 

I've recorded more benchmarks on BF1, and the results were similar all around. So no, this is not a one case scenario. 

I've benchmarked every system the same way as the first.

Are you suprised about the results?

gd says 7800x 29% better then r5 1600 ridiculous

Nope. The i7 7800x has much higher clock speeds(24% higher clock speeds), BF1 benefit from Hyper-Threading, but NOT from AMDs SMT, I've even seen that it ran better on Ryzen without SMT and BF does NOT scale in performance with more than 4-6 cores.


And you tested the multiplayer, which you can NOT test consistently, you can NOT do the same thing twice in a multiplayer game, mainly because there are 63 other random factors, a.k.a people.

And yes, basically the difference in FPS is the difference in clock speeds.
22% difference in average, 24% in the minimum and the max is GPU limited.

You don't get a linear improvement. But this is something I can test.


I know MP is hard to bench due to all the different variations, but the bottom line is still the same. The results were similar across all of the maps on both the systems. And with that I mean,


I've tested several benches on both system. The results are very similar all across the tests.

Yes when you increase clock speeds as long as the software is well written you do get linear improvements when rising the clock speeds.
In this case BF1 scales well with up to 6 cores and is well optimized, so it does scale linearly.

Can you do the same benchmark but with the 7800X clocked at 3850MHz?
I'd like to see if these lower benchmarks are due to Ryzen or due to the lower clock speeds of Ryzen.

A Ryzen at 4800-5000 (+ some high speed memory) would probably be trading blows. The IPC is slower, but the MT systems on Ryzen is stronger than Intel's HT as far as I've understood.

Sorry mate, but as I wrote, the Ryzen system is sold.


I could still test GTA though..

GTA V will run better on intel, cuz it's obviously intel optimized, no need to benchmark it really.
