This spring, for the first time in many years, AMD was able to bring to the processor architecture with a competitive market. At the same time in the last six months, Intel distinguished itself except that only the release of Pentium models with Hyper-Threading (on CPU LGA2066 conclusions while making early). Accordingly, Advanced Micro Devices are entitled to change the situation in the processor market in their favor, and the reasons for this are available.
The developer test utilities PassMark, PassMark Software, released a new batch of statistics users’ preferences in the choice of CPU, covering the period from April 1 to June 30 this year. In the formation of the final schedule into account only the entries in the database with PassMark based computers with x86-architecture processors. The vast majority of results were obtained in the Windows operating systems, as PassMark Performance Test does not support other operating systems.
As the graph shows, the demand for AMD processors those using PassMark benchmark, rising for the fourth consecutive quarter, or, more simply, the whole year. The lowest figure (17.5%) of all time statistics gathering, the third quarter of 2016 was recorded, and then gradually Sunnyvale otvoovyval position up to the second quarter of this year, when a broken abruptly rushed up – at the level of 20.6% to 31% . At the same time line showing the number of results per CPU Intel, the past three months made a steep dive from 79.3% to 69%. Such was not observed since the fourth quarter of 2007, when Intel’s share of the PassMark accounted for 67.9%, while AMD – 31,8% (the remaining 0.3% owned by VIA processors).
Data for individual CPU showed a large gap between Intel (Core i7-7700K) most popular chips and AMD (Ryzen May 1600). Nevertheless, the model Ryzen Ryzen 5 and 7 clearly pushed FX counterparts for AM3 + platform down list.
Among desktop processors PassMark leading Intel Core i9-7900X. Of course, this is not a surprise, as well as a small gap between the CPU-core 10, located on the first and second places. Curiously, the processor business class AMD Ryzen 7 the PRO 1700X (3.5 / 3.7 GHz) to several hundred points ahead of fellow Ryzen 7 1800X (3,6 / 4,0 GHz), although, logically, things should It is exactly the opposite.
