[i] Updated Feb 28, 2017: Generational IPC uplift for the “Zen” architecture vs. “Piledriver” architecture is + 52% with an estimated SPECint_base2006 score compiled with GCC 4.6 –O2 at a fixed 3.4GHz. Generational IPC uplift for the “Zen” architecture vs. “Excavator” architecture is + 64% as measured with Cinebench R15 1T, and also + 64% with an estimated SPECint_base2006 score compiled with GCC 4.6 –O2, at a fixed 3.4GHz. System configs: AMD reference motherboard (s), AMD Radeon ™ R9 290X GPU, 8GB DDR4-2667 ("Zen") / 8GB DDR3-2133 ("Excavator") / 8GB DDR3-1866 ("Piledriver"), Ubuntu Linux 16 .x (SPECint_base2006 estimate) and Windows® 10 x64 RS1 (Cinebench R15). SPECint_base2006 estimates: “Zen” vs. "Piledriver" (31.5 vs. 20.7 | + 52%), "Zen" vs. "Excavator" (31.5 vs. 19.2 | + 64%). Cinebench R15 1t scores: “Zen” vs. "Piledriver" (139 vs. 79 both at 3.4G | + 76%), "Zen" vs. "Excavator" (160 vs. 97.5 both at 4.0G | + 64%). GD-108

[ii] Testing performed in AMD Internal Labs as of May 10, 2017. System Config: Ryzen 7 PRO 1700: AMD Myrtle - SM with 95W R7 1800X, AMD Radeon R7 240, 2 × 4096 DDR4-2400 RAM, Win 10 PRO, 512GB SSD, Graphics driver 21.19.142.257. Intel i7-7700: MSI Z270 SLI (MS-7A59) with 65W i7-7700, Intel HD Graphics 630, 2 × 4096 DDR4-2400 RAM, Win 10 PRO, 512GB SSD, graphics driver 21.20.16.4534. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Performance may vary based on version of driver used. Cinebench R15 nT is used to show multithreaded performance. Using Cinebench R15 nT, the Ryzen 7 PRO 1700 scored 1422 while the Intel i7-7700 scored 878 which is a performance differential of 61.9 or ~ 62% in favor of the Ryzen 7 PRO 1700. RZP-2
