AMD Ryzen 7 2700X review

Popular Posts

In 2017, AMD’s year was a banner year. It introduced to shake things up in the processor market. These new processors have higher-core counts and better multi-threaded performance, at lower prices than Intel’s CPUs. It was only natural that we would see Ryzen 2nd Generation do the same in 2018.

The best processors AMD Ryzen 2nd Generation represents a major breakthrough in the processors . It introduced the first mainstream 12nm architecture, lightning fast clock speeds, and many other new features. The Ryzen 7 2700X, which outperforms the original Ryzen chips and even surpasses the Intel Core I7-8700K, is an excellent example of all this.

It’s also a very affordable part considering the performance. The 2700X, especially now that the Ryzen7 3700X is available, is a budget-friendly PC part and will likely be the main component of many Black Friday deals.

Pricing and availability

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X costs $329 (PS299 AU$469). This is slightly higher than the Ryzen 7 1700X’s initial $309 (PS269 AU$429) price. Based on the performance, however, this processor is also considered to be a successor to the $499 (PS299; AU$475) Ryzen 7 1800X.

The Wraith Prism is a premium RGB CPU cooling cooler, and the processor comes with it. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X seems to be a better deal than the predecessor. The Intel Core i7-8700K, a competitor chip, costs $349 (PS319 / AU$499).

Chipset and features

Although the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X may have the same eight-core, 16-thread configurations as its predecessors, it is significantly faster thanks to a 3.7GHz base speed and a 4.3GHz boost. Comparatively, the Ryzen 7 1700X would be at 3.8GHz while the Ryzen 7 1800X could reach 4GHz.

Ryzen 2nd Generation’s 12nm Zen+ architecture is responsible for a large portion of the speed increase. This architecture represents a literal generational leap from the 14nm Zen architecture Ryzen first debuted last year. AMD claims that its latest chips offer 16% higher performance and 11% less power draw than the previous generation processors running at the same clock speed.

New CPUs mean new chipsets. AMD has introduced the X470 platform in order to deliver the same power delivery and efficiency as Ryzen 2nd generation. The enhancements allow the Precision Boost 2’s frequency to push higher frequencies across all threads. This is useful for heavy workloads such as gaming and encoding. Extended Frequency Range 2 is now available on all cores of the CPU, rather than just one. This means that overclocking can be improved.

Ryzen 2nd generation processors run best on the new X470 platform. However, it is almost completely optional. Because they are fully compatible with the AM4 socket, AMD’s 2700X and other new chips will work on an X370 or X350 motherboard.

Users will need to upgrade their motherboards with compatible BIOs. Unfortunately, this requires a 1st generation Ryzen processor. AMD says it is working with customers who wish to purchase into its new processor family using an older platform. Users will still be able see compatible motherboards in stores marked with an ‘AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 Ready” sticker.

AMD’s optional StoreMI technology, which ties together all of your storage medias for faster access to most frequently used files and programs, has been introduced. AMD StoreMI moves the most frequently used files from the fastest storage to your solid-state drive or hard drive.

This technology is very similar to Intel Rapid Storage technology. However, AMD Store Mi can also use up to 2GB DDR4 system memory for temporary caching files and transferring them between drives. It’s an optional feature, but AMD has promised to include it on all Ryzen 2nd generation CPUs.

Performance

Our past processor reviews showed that the battle between Intel and AMD would result in one core being better and more gaming performance while the other would be superior with multi-core performance. AMD, however, wins with the Ryzen 7 2700X.

The 2700X is able achieve higher-frequency Ryzen 2nd generation, which means that it surpasses the Intel Core i7-8700K for single-core benchmarks. AMD continues to be the top-ranked processor for multi-core performance. These figures translate into better overall performance. The Ryzen 7 2700X was able to encode files at the highest frame rate of any processor we tested during this review.

One thing to remember is that Intel processors may be at their weakest point in many years. The Intel Core i7-8700K has two fewer cores that AMD’s Ryzen flagship. Additionally, the Spectre/Meltdown patches have had a significant impact on its performance.

The flagship Coffee Lake processor scored better in Cinebench when it was first tested last October. It scored 204 points in single core, and 1,543 in multi-core. Geekbench also showed that the 8700K scored 5,831 points in single core and 25,811 in multi-core.

Gaming aside, the Ryzen 7 2700X is not as fast as the Core i7-8700K but it has eroded Intel’s lead by just one to two frames per se.

We are not in love with the Ryzen 7 2700X for its performance numbers. However, that is only a limitation of physics. The good news is that this processor can happily absorb as much juice as it needs and easily exceeds 4.375GHz on all cores. We tested it at an event with other editors.

Final verdict

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X consumer processor is the most powerful on the market. The Intel Core i7-8700K is the closest competitor. It is slower on single- and multicore fronts and does not offer better gaming performance to justify its higher price.

This is partly due to Intel’s weak post Spectre/Meltdown state. However, AMD’s Ryzen 2nd generation improvements are amazing. We expected only marginal speed improvements from the CPU upgrades that we have been used to over the past few years. However, AMD has provided yet another platform for tidal shifting.

AMD’s processors are now on par with Intel’s, if not even better. The enhancements to Precision Boost, XFR2 and XFR2 are also impressive. The Ryzen 7 2700X package is an amazing value, thanks to the WraithPrism cooler and AMD’s StoreMI technology.
