Single and multi-threaded benchmarks for AMD’s high-end 8 core and 16 thread Ryzen 7 1700X CPU are here and they are impressive! The company’s highly awaited and anticipated family of next-gen enthusiast desktop Ryzen CPUs is less than a month away and official launch date is set for 2th of March, 2017
To date, there are 17 different Ryzen SKUs which we know including 8,6 and four core CPUs set to take on Intel’s core i7, i5, and i3 chips. Each is fully unlocked and overclocking ready to boot. For the time being specification of only 17 models have been confirmed.
These including company’s top-end Ryzen 7 1800X with 3.6Ghz base clock speed and 4.0 Turbo clock speed with overclocking more than 4.0Ghz if you have an optimal cooling system.
Other two chips are Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1700, The Ryzen 7 1700 is slightly different and it is more energy efficient with a power rating of 65W and 30 watts below 1800X and 1700X.
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Benchmarked – One Thousand Dollar Performer At $389
The new benchmarks have emerged from AMD Ryzen CPU which is believed to be 8-core R7 1700X, giving PC builders maximum performance.
The chips were tested on low-end MSI A320 Ryzen motherboard wth 2400Mhz memory which surely has a negative effect on these benchmark results.
One other thing to note is that in this test CPU core Turbo mode as not detected, so it could potentially be inactive during this test.
The timing on the DDR4 memory are particularly bad, sitting with fairly loose timings of (17-17-17-39 2T), which combined with a rather low speed of 2400MHz could have a notable effect on this CPU’s performance, especially when compared to X99 Intel’s CPUs that run with quad-channel memory.
Compare this to the i7 6800K in the tables below, that is known to be using quad-channel 3200MHz memory with timings of 16-18-18-38. This means that this is far from an apples-to-apples comparison, though certainly results that are worth looking at.
These tests are from CPUMARK, which tests several aspects of CPUs from single-core to multicore, integer math, floating-point performance and many more forms of calculations. Here we have 9 different CPU related tests on AMD’s Ryzen CPU engineering sample Intel CPUs like the 7700K and the i7 6900K.
Moving further to prime numbers you can see AMD fall behind here, tough Ryzen is still enough to beat Intel’s i7700K chip, it must be mentioned that CPU is quad-core not 8-core.
In compression tests, Ryzen CPU is able to compete with Intel’s i7 6900K and i7 6850K.
In single threaded performance Ryzen CPU sample shown to have quite similar performance as Intel’s 6950X, falling behind Intel’s higher clock CPUs. However single core performance is greatly increased than AMD has offered previously.
Let’s look at the floating point and compression benchmarks you can see that Ryzen CPU sample offer performance which is in-between Intel’s i7 6850K and i7 6900K which is a fantastic level of performance in given pricing.

Looking at these results we can see that both AM and Intel CPUs have their strong points, though it seems like this is far fro the best that Ryzen CPUs can offer. It will be interesting to see how AMD’s higher clocked Ryzen processors will perform, especially when combined with faster memory.
