AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Gaming Benchmarks vs 1700 at 4GHz, 10% Faster on Average.
The Ryzen 7 2700X was put in a head-to-head comparison with an overclocked Ryzen 7 1700 at 4.0GHz paired with a custom water cooling loop. At stock clocks, the Ryzen 7 2700X managed to outperform the 1700 by up to 14%, thanks to lower cache and memory latency and better inter-core communication in addition to very smart Turbo functionality.
The productivity benchmarks are not any less impressive with the Ryzen 7 2700X showing performance improvements of up to 13% at stock clocks versus the overclocked Ryzen 7 1700. First generation Ryzen simply can’t keep up, even with a hefty 4.0GHz overclock and a custom liquid cooling loop.
This demonstrates that second generation Ryzen isn’t just an overclocked 1000 series Ryzen CPU, and even with the 2700X running at stock clocks, an overclocked first generation part will not be able to match it in performance.
The official embargo on 2nd generation Ryzen ends on the 19th, so stay tuned for more reviews and benchmarks to come out in a couple of days.
