AMD Ryzen 7 2700 And Ryzen 5 2600 Review: Great Value, Solid Performance

Ryzen 7 2700 And Ryzen 5 2600: JetStream, LAME, Blender

Next up, we have some numbers from the JetStream Benchmark Suite developed by WebKit. The JetStream Benchmark Suite uses a wide array of latency and throughput benchmarks to evaluate JavaScript performance, and all of the results are tabulated with roughly equal weighting. The benchmark measures both metrics of traditional JavaScript programming styles used on websites as well as new JavaScript-based technologies used on more modern, rich web applications. Scores in this benchmark are an indicator of the performance users would see when browsing and running advanced web applications.

JetStream JavaScript Benchmark
JavsScript Performance Testing

All of the systems were tested using the latest version of Microsoft's Edge browser, with default browser settings, on a clean install of Windows 10 Professional x64.

No surprises here. Ryzen 7 2700 And Ryzen 5 2600 drop in just behind the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X, but well behind Intel's speedy Core i7-8700K.

Audio Conversion and Encoding
In our custom LAME MT MP3 encoding test, we convert a large WAV file to the MP3 format, which is a popular, day-to-day use case for many end users, to provide portability and storage of their digital audio content. LAME is an open-source mid to high bit-rate and VBR (variable bit rate) MP3 audio encoder that is used widely around the world in a multitude of third party applications.

In this test, we created our own 223MB WAV file and converted it to the MP3 format using the multi-thread capable LAME MT application in single and multi-thread modes. Processing times are recorded below, listed in seconds. Shorter times equate to better performance.


This audio encoding benchmark isn't very kind to AMD's Ryzen processors. Intel's architectures have a clear advantage here and the lower clocks of the Ryzen 7 2700 And Ryzen 5 2600 push them down the heap a few slots, in positions just ahead of AMD's Raven Ridge APUs.
3D Rendering Benchmark

Blender is a free and open source 3D creation suite that can handle everything from modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. It has a built-in benchmarking tool that will track the time it takes to complete rendering a particular model. We used a CPU-focused BMW model for these tests here...

The Ryzen 7 2700 And Ryzen 5 2600 find their stride in this intensive, multi-threaded workload. Here, the Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 sandwich the Core i7-8700K and Ryzen 5 2600X, and finish about in the middle of the pack.
