AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Goes Head-To-Head Against Intel Core i5-7400
Ever since AMD unveiled the new Ryzen chips, the battle of the processors suddenly became interesting. AMD's Ryzen 5 1400 almost has the same specifications and price as Intel's Core i5 7400 CPU which makes their rivalry even more appealing.
The Ryzen 5 1400 comes with 4 cores and 8 threads making it the closest rival of Intel's Core i5 processor. The AMD chip also has 8 MB of L3 cache and a thermal design power or TDP of 65 watts. The AMD Ryzen 5 1400's benchmark test results were very recently leaked and it showed that the chip can compete with Intel's Core i5 processor. The AMD chip clocked speeds of 3.2 GHz base and 3.4 GHz boost. It also overclocked to 3.8 GHz before it crashed. The Ryzen 5 1400 scored 754 points at 3.5 GHz in the Cinebench R15 while garnering 8.49 points in Cinebench R11.5.
The Intel Core i5 7400, meanwhile, comes with four cores and four threads which are four threads lower than the Ryzen 5 1400. At $169, the Ryzen 5 1400 CPU is the cheapest of AMD's new processors. It's also $30 cheaper than the $199 Intel Core i5 7400. As Forbes noted, the Ryzen 5 1600 which follows the Ryzen 5 1400 is just $20 cheaper than the Intel Core i5 7400 despite having six cores and 12 threads.
A video comparing the two processors along with the Intel Pentium G4560 showed that the Ryzen 5 can compete with Intel and in some cases, was better. As Digital Trends noted, the AMD Ryzen 5 looks good on paper thanks to its better specifications. The video also proves this point though the person behind the YouTube video, Santiago Santiago, noted that AMD's processors still have some room to improve. If that's the case, then AMD might finally pull the rug under Intel.
A number of rumors have already surfaced indicating that some companies are considering using AMD's chips instead of the more popular Intel processors. Apple is in the middle of such rumors as the tech giant is supposedly shifting from the usual Intel chips to AMD Ryzen for the next iMac and Macbook Pro. A more recent rumor, however, stated that both devices may utilize Intel's Canon Lake processors. Of course, these are all just rumors for now so it's better to take them with a grain of salt.
