AMD's new Ryzen 7 1700 might cost just $329, but it offers some monster performance when overclocked - especially when it hits 4GHz, where it keeps up with the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X.

OCUK member 'Gibbo' overclocked his retail Ryzen 7 1700 processor using an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard, with the Ryzen 7 1700 hitting 4.05GHz on all 8 cores. At this speed, the overclocked Ryzen 7 1700 is running at 450MHz higher than the 1800X.

 

Gibbo explained: "We just tested a 1700, it hit 4.0GHz stable in everything, but ONLY in the Crosshair mainboard, the lower-end boards it was hovering around 3.80GHz as the VRM's were cooking with extra voltage. It however was maxing around 4050MHz, so I'd say 1700 can do 3.9-4.1GHz, of course the 1800X will probably do 4.1-4.3 as no doubt better binned, but if your clocking the motherboard has a big impact on the overclock and so far ASUS Crosshair and Asrock Taichi seem the best two".2
