And why didn't you include the i5-7600k in the Cinebench single threaded benchmark? That would be a good indicator if AMD can actually compete core vs core.
Most software is still single threaded, so I don't have any use for more than 4 cores at the moment really. And please include some realworld benchmarks like photoediting speeds, Winrar, etc. That's where these CPUs will be used the most.

Batch-processing with one or two filters applied, etc would be most interesting to see the results.
Anyways. Besides the missing Photoshop tests Anandtech did a pretty good review, pitting the R5-1600X and 1500X directly against the intel i5-7600k and 7500...
Singlethreaded the i5s still beat the R5s and they come with an integrated GPU to boot, which is a musthave for office-PCs and small workstations where a dedicated GPU would be total overkill.

I only need a somewhat decent iGPU that has enough grunt to accelerate graphics-software so that you don't get screentearing etc when scrolling/panning/zooming around in Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign.

Also impressed by Broadwell's IGP performance - a shame they didn't continue along those lines as it had pretty good 1080p performance in many games with CPU grunt to match. If AMD can pair an 8 thread quad core with something that offers solid 1080p performance in current games they could be on to a winner.
