The AMD Ryzen 7 1700X is the second most powerful chip that AMD has to offer when it comes to the upcoming AMD Ryzen series, the CPU features 8 cores and 16 threads. While this is an enthusiast CPU it is very well priced as compared to the Intel counterparts. Here we have the first AMD Ryzen 7 1700X review leak that you might be interested in.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X CPU-Z Screen Shots
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Power Consumption
Here we can see the power consumption of the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X across the board from when the system is sleeping to 100% load and we can see that the power consumption ranges from 0.6 Watts when the system is sleeping to 422 Watts when both the CPU and GPU are working at 100% load.
When only the CPU is at 100% load the power consumption is 170 Watts this means that as usual, the major power consumption is by the GPU.
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Synthetic Benchmarks
Here we see that the Ryzen CPU falls short as compared to the Intel CPUs but the price of this CPU is still lower so you should expect it to fall behind in some applications but that does not mean that Intel has the superior chip. Remember that the pricing of the AMD Ryzen chips is very competitive.
Here we see the Ryzen chip making a comeback and making its way to the top and coming second only to the very expensive extreme series CPU from Intel. Just like I said, AMD will be lagging behind in some applications but the same can be said about Intel chips.
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Gaming Benchmarks
Synthetic benchmarks are all great but how well does AMD Ryzen 7 1700X perform when it comes to games? Let find out.
Grand Theft Auto IV
When it comes to gaming we can see that the AMD chip can hold its own as compared to the Intel CPUs and manages to keep up with the 6700K. This is interesting as the availability of more that 4 cores does not seem to provide much of a performance boost and that should not come as a surprise as you really don’t need more than 4 cores when it comes to gaming.
Sniper Elite III
We can see variations when it comes to maximum FPS but the average FPS is pretty much the same when it comes to AMD Ryzen and Intel CPUs. The difference here is minute.
Here we can see that the AMD Ryzen CPU is lagging behind a bit and that overclocking this CPU will not give you much performance when it comes to this specific title but this is something that will differ from game to game. In some games, we will see Intel CPUs perform better while other games will run better on AMD systems.
Let us know what you think about the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X and these performance numbers.
