AMD is weeks away from launching its next-gen Ryzen processors, and now we're finally seeing some synthetic benchmarks on the new CPU - and while this is still a qualifications sample, the results shouldn't be too far away from what we will see from the retail CPUs.

In the leaked benchmarks, the R7 1700X is clocked at 3.4GHz with Turbo mode disabled - meaning results should be higher than this when in the hands of gamers and consumers. The Ryzen 7 1700X was tested on an entry-level MSI A320 motherboard, with relaxed memory timings of 17-17-17-39 2T @ 2400MHz.

As you can see from the results, AMD has quite the winner on its hands with the R7 1700X, which should be priced at just $389 - easily beating or tying with Intel's current mainstream champion: the Core i7-7700K.
