We finally have some synthetic benchmarks of Ryzen. The CPU used in this test still carries internal codename (AMD Ryzen: ZD3406BAM88F4_38/34_Y), where F4 stands for B-steppings qualification sample, in other words, it shouldn’t be much different from a retail model.
It’s worth noting that Turbo mode for Ryzen CPU is currently disabled (or undetected), so the performance could still theoretically increase. The Ryzen 7 model that was used for this test has a base clock of 3400 MHz. Judging from what we know so far, this means Ryzen 7 1700X, so it is not the fastest Ryzen model out there.
What’s also quite interesting is the fact that Ryzen 7 CPU was tested on .. MSI A320 motherboard, which looks like this. This is an entry-level AM4 motherboard, so we don’t know how did that affect performance, maybe that’s why Turbo mode was undetected in the first place.
Finally the last important thing to note are memory timings (17-17-17-39 2T) @ 2400 MHz. This also could’ve negatively affected the performance, as those timings are not very good.
The following metrics are a comparison between my stock Intel Core i7 6800K and Ryzen (presumably Ryzen 7 1700X):

A side-by-side comparison to my i7 6800K:
We also have the first SiSoft benchmark result. The 16-thread Ryzen CPU is ranked at a 2513th position. The qualification was labeled as excellent performance. The test was performed in Multi-media processing.
This gave Ryzen 7 1700X 42nd position in the ranking in this particular test. That’s just under Kabylake Intel Core i7 7700K, which was running 100 MHz above specs.
