In these tests of single-threaded latency and throughput, Raven Ridge parts prove themselves about on par with their Summit Ridge brethren and the newly Meltdown- and Spectre-hampered i3-8100. The Core i5-8400's lofty 4 GHz boost clock seems to give it an edge in the JetStream and Octane benchmarks.
The Speedometer benchmark, a new addition to our test suite, puts the Ryzen 5 1500X, Core i3-8100, and i5-8400 well in the lead. Speedometer runs longer than any of our traditional benchmarks, which might prove a disadvantage for the 65-W AMD parts more so than the Intel competition.
