Ahead of the official launch next month, the first benchmark results for the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X CPU has been leaked on the web, courtesy of a member over at AnandTech forums.
The Ryzen 7 1700X CPU used in the following tests features a 3.4 GHz base clock, so it is not the fastest Ryzen chip out there. Another thing to keep in mind is that the benchmark results were achieved with an entry-level AM4 motherboard, so final performance with higher-end motherboards could be even better.
As you can see, the Ryzen 7 1700X manages to perform extremely well in almost all the tests, coming very close to the Core i7-6900K. On the CPU Mark single-threaded benchmark, the 1700X showed significant improvement when compared to the AMD FX-8350 chip. In the Integer math test, the Ryzen 7 1700X proves to be a beast, managing to leave behind the much more expensive Core i7-6900K. In SiSoft benchmark, the 16-thread Ryzen processor managed to secure the 2513th position, just below the Intel Core i7 7700K ‘Kaby Lake’ processor.
The 8-core Ryzen 7 1700X, as leaked recently, is expected to cost just $389, making it a fantastic choice for gamers. As the benchmark results above reveal, the chip manages to perform similarly to a $1000 Intel Core i7-6900K, so the price-to-performance ratio here is simply off the charts.
AMD is expected to unveil the complete Ryzen lineup at an event on March 2nd, at least according to rumors.
