AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU Review



If the Ryzen 7 1800X is a little to expensive for your taste then perhaps the Ryzen 7 1700 solve all your problems.

Lovely review Tom. "On that bombshell..." Too bad you can't hear that phrase anymore.

I really don't know what AMD was doing with that temperature offset. They didn't shoot themselves in the leg, they dug up their eye with a spoon. Imagine this headline:"Ryzen 7 on pair with 6900K for half the price and at 65 degrees overclocked!"

Definitely the R7 to go for.

Can't wait to watch this one tonight!! I will be buying this CPU, so it's relevant to my interests! I watched another video from a little known YouTuber who's name escapes me, and he did some benchmarking and somehow got his ram to 3600Mhz, and it made a serious improvement in game benchmarks. This CPU at 4Ghz + some higher clocked memory is a VERY impressive performer!

Which asus drivers did you use and which did you omit?
having the r7 1700 and the prime x370 pro, i haven't found the buggy driver(s) - yet.
system runs great at clean win install, and unstable with all drivers/util. from asus website.

running a lot of blender, i just love the system when bsods doesn't appear.

I'd be really interested to see that so if you remember it or come by it again, please do post it here.

The 1700 does not have the offset.Only the 95watt chips, 1700x/1800 do. Tom needs to edit the article for that as AMD have confirmed the 1700 has no offset
As confirmed by them here.

Will do, I'll find it this evening and post it up. Grain of salt though, as he's not a well known guy with a ton of subs (less than 10K). But it was interesting.

Jayz also did an overclocking video and played with memory speeds and yes, it makes an friggin HUGE difference to gaming in certain games.

I am sorry. I didn't formulate sentence well. I should have added "... offset on X processors". But they should have left all of them without offset.
