I assumed it was being used on x470. Oh well shouldn't assume.

Still more than 10% slower than my 4690K (4.5Ghz) in single threaded apps..

...still not good enough for my needs, looks like Ryzen 2 on the 7nm die in 2019 will be what I need to wait for.

You're comparing a stock CPU to an OC 4.5ghz one for single threaded performance. Don't see how it's all that fair

Clock your CPU to 3.70GHz, Clock your memory down to 2400MHz then see what your score is

Don't waste your time. Geekbench proper bums Intel CPUs. If you want a true indication run something a little more neutral.

What's fair got to with it?

I run my CPU at the speed it is capable of without any issues and take that as my performance baseline.

If the 2700X can overclock to a similar level and give equal or better performance then I'll take another look at it when the reviews come out.

Why?....this score will almost certainly be based on the 4.2Ghz(ish) boost speed that's been reported, not 3.7Ghz stock speed.

Why not compare like for like though ?

Clock your CPU to 3.70GHz and your memory to 2400MHz, Then you can see the differences.

I will never run my 4690K at 3.7Ghz so what is the point?

Unless the 2700X can overclock to a level that it will outperform my 4690K, its a completely irrelevant comparison.

Because then you can see the clock for clock improvements over Haswell, No one is saying you should go out and buy a 2700X, I'd personally just be curious.

..anyway like I said in a previous post, this 4700 score would be based on the boost speed of the 2700X, not its base clock.
