Report: AMD Ryzen Performance in Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark

AMD's upcoming 8-core Ryzen CPU has appeared online in an apparent leak showing performance from an Ashes of the Singularity benchmark run. The benchmark results, available here on imgur and reported by TechPowerUp (among others today) shows the result of a run featuring the unreleased CPU paired with an NVIDIA Titan X graphics card.

It is interesting to consider that this rather unusual system configuration was also used by AMD during their New Horizon fan event in December, with an NVIDIA Titan X and Ryzen 8-core processor powering the 4K game demos of Battlefield 1 that were pitted against an Intel Core i7-6900K/Titan X combo.

It is also interesting to note that the processor listed in the screenshot above is (apparently) not an engineering sample, as TechPowerUp points out in their post:

"Unlike some previous benchmark leaks of Ryzen processors, which carried the prefix ES (Engineering Sample), this one carried the ZD Prefix, and the last characters on its string name are the most interesting to us: F4 stands for the silicon revision, while the 40_36 stands for the processor's Turbo and stock speeds respectively (4.0 GHz and 3.6 GHz)."

March is fast approaching, and we won't have to wait long to see just how powerful this new processor will be for 4K gaming (and other, less important stuff). For now, I want to find results from an AotS benchmark with a Titan X and i7-6900K to see how these numbers compare!

Any way you guys could throw up a similar bench with an Intel chip to see how they compare?

I thought this one was faked?

Yeah pretty sure this was total bunk.

...I don't care how fast it is for "4K" gaming. Since it's a cpu, I want to know how fast it will be at lower resolutions where the GPU isn't the bottleneck.

So are benchmarks far off from what AMD said?

The issue with that Benchmark is that the Ryzen chip was ran with half resolution terrain off and every other test I've seen ran with it on. Half Res Terrain is a feature provided to stress the gpu less, while providing visuals that are about the same. So the Ryzen CPU is doing a much harder run of that benchmark than the other processors shown in the AOS database.

I will just post here something from Guru3D. If you guys can make a comment on this, that would be helpful, because I have no experience with this benchmark.

"Now I need to be careful here as this is tricky, you can run the AOS benchmark two ways, GPU and CPU mode. We can only assume that the benchmark was run in CPU mode if you wanted to show off a processor result set right? Thing is, if we run our test in GPU mode, our 6950X average reaches well over 110 FPS. So this can goand end up two ways, just really good or plain bad."

Am I the only one who read "AotS" in the last paragraph and thought about the old G4 show, "Attack of the Show"?
