This review comes in two big meaty chunks to sink your teeth into. The first part is discussing the new Skylake-X processors, from silicon to design and covering some of the microarchitecture features, such as AVX-512-F support and cache structure. As mentioned, Skylake-X has some significantly different functionality to the Skylake-S core, which has an impact on how software should be written to take advantage of the new features.

The second part is our testing and results. We were lucky enough to source all three Skylake-X processors for this review, and have been running some regression testing of the older processors on our new 2017 testing suite. There have been some hiccups along the way though, and we'll point them out as we go.

An extra morsel to run after is our IPC testing. We spend some time to run tests on Skylake-S and Skylake-X to see which benchmarks benefit from the new microarchitecture design, and if it really does mean anything to consumers at this stage.

As always, AnandTech delivers the goods when it comes to CPU reviews.

2006-04-10 : Ryzen doesn't looks that impressive on such benchmark
Most of those cpus are low power mobile cpus so not comparable to a desktop cpu.
AMD Ryzen 7 1700 3Ghz 212 65watt
AMD GX-412HC 1.2Ghz 209 7 watt
Intel Core i7-7Y75 @ 1.30GHz 873 4.5watt
So AMD's new desktop cpu is as power efficient as their 2014 embedded low power soc. Guess what happens when they release a cpu for laptops.
