Next up we have Excel and here the 8700K was around 3% quicker than the 1600X when matched clock for clock. However the 2600X is able to match the 8700K with the same completion time of 2.85 seconds, impressive stuff.
The HandBrake test we run doesn't leverage the AMD Ryzen CPUs that well and here we see that the 2600X is only able to match the 8600K and is therefore 15% slower than the 8700K.
Moving on to the Corona benchmark we see that the 2600X is able to reduce the render time by 8% when compared to the 1600X and this meant it was just 3% slower than the 8700K. So Intel still holds an IPC advantage in this test but it's very minor.
Next up we have Blender and here the 2600X was just 2.5% quicker than the 1600X and that made it 4% slower than the 8700K. Not a huge difference and again while Intel still holds an IPC advantage in this test, it's less than 5% now.
Using the V-Ray Benchmark we see that the 2600X improves on the 1600X by a 4% margin and that meant it was just a single percent slower than the 8700K, so basically on par then.
