According to lastest rumors on AnandTech forum, it looks like there are new leaks on the upcoming Ryzen CPUs. This time we see the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X CPU. Since AMD Ryzen is not out yet, this is just another leak and we can't tell if is legit or not. At the moment there are several misleading informations about this benchmarks.
First of all we have to mention the motherboard used. Turbo mode for Ryzen CPU is currently disabled (or undetected), in other words the performance could still theoretically increase. Furthermore we can see a MSI A320 motherboard which is an entry-level AM4 motherboard and maybe the Turbo mode is disabled due to the chipset. Another important aspect are memory timings and speed. The benchmarks have been conducted with DDR4 memory @ 2400 MHz (17-17-17-39 2T). This also could have negatively affected the performance, as those timings are not very tight.
Last but not least, according to the source the Intel Core i7-6800K should be heavly OC'ed.
EDIT: since it's not clear which baseline they have used, we have decided to run our test with a Core i7-6700K @ 4.5 GHz and a Core i7-5820K @ 3.40 GHz (no Turbo). Both CPUs are paired with DDR4 memory @ 2400 MHz (17-17-17-39 2T). On post #2 and #3 you can find all our scores.

Since one of our italian readers can't wait here another batch of scores with a i7-5820K @ 3.40 GHz. No Turbo. DDR4-2400 17-17-17-39 2T. According to latest rumors, the ZD3406BAM88F4 (the one used in these benchmarks) should run stock at 3.40 GHz. Furthermore all AMD benchmarks have been conducted with Turbo OFF and DDR4-2400 17-17-17-39 2T.
