It stands for how many instructions the cpu can execute during a single clock tick. Keyword= single clock tick
https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/microarchitectures/coffee_lake#PipelineSo you're admitting that you have no clue what IPC means?
That would be 10 instructions zen+ can choose from out of 6 micro ops it can execute each tick vs 8 instructions on lake from which it can execute four micro ops per tick.
But we all know that that's not the performance difference we get from any app.
Yeah they use the witcher 3 for that without having the FPS results for it....Look at the gaming loop then on the same page ... 9900k pulling over 20% more power in lightly threaded tasks ...
The fact that Intel lost the efficiency crown with their lofty 5.0ghz goals isn't debatable. It happened. Blame Intel for fooling all its supporters by vastly changing the way they determine what TDP to put on their chips. As is clear by these power consumption charts I linked, AMDs 105w TDP in reality indicates vastly lower power consumption than Intels "supposed" 95w TDP ... cat's out of the bag on that one.
Looking at other sites though you use 20% more power to get 30% more FPS so not really a bad trade off, is it?!
