AMD Ryzen 7 2700X vs 1700 Benchmarks Showcases Up To 14% Performance Leap

AMD Ryzen 2000 CPUs and APUs are just a few days away from launch, however, before these CPUs could get released benchmarks for Ryzen 2000 have started to pour in and one such gaming benchmark for AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has popped up online.

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X gaming benchmark compares the 2700X with 1700 at 4GHz to see the difference between the gaming performance of both CPUs. For this gaming benchmark, 1700 has been overclocked to 4 GHz while keeping the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X at stock clock-speed.

In terms of gaming performance, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X outperformed 1700 by 10% on average and the biggest leap the 2700X get was 14%. This is due to low memory and cache latency and better Inter-core communication.

However, gaming benchmarks weren’t the only comparison between the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and 1700 as the benchmarks also compare the two in terms of essentials, app-startup, video conferencing, internet browsing and more.

These benchmarks are also impressive as 2700X takes up to 13% lead on app-startup, 9% performance lead-in photo editing. Check out the benchmarks in the images below.

These benchmarks reveal that AMD as certainly improved upon its Zen micro-architecture to yield better performance overall and overclocked 1700 just can’t keep up with the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X at stock clocks.

Aside from the performance, the 2700X can be overclocked to 5.8 GHz across all cores. One particular PC enthusiast by the name of “TSAIK” recently submitted his results for overclocking AMD Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 7 2700X at 5.8 GHz across all cores using liquid nitrogen as a cooling solution.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, this CPU has a base clock of 3.7GHz and a boost clock of 4.3GHz. TSAIK was able to run this CPU at 5884MHz (5.8 GHz) across all 8 cores using the MSI X470 GAMING M7 AC motherboard.

Speaking of the X470 chipset, AMD has apparently teased the Z490 Chipset which also has more PCIe lanes than X470 chipset.

The Z490 Chipset is not much different from the AMD’s flagship X470 chipset except for the PCIe lanes as the Z490 has 4 additional PCIe 3.0 lanes which is something that would benefit those who like to use multiple GPUs.

What do you think of these benchmarks? Do you think the Ryzen 2000 CPUs and APUs will outperform Intel and its own previous gen CPUs? Let us know in the comments.
