When it comes to synthetic benchmarks we can expect a larger 14% increase over the 1800X, which is much more impressive. But the Ryzen 7 2700X uses more power, with up to 13W more than the 1800X. Not much, but something worth noting. The new Ryzen 7 2700X has much smoother frequency scaling in multi-core over the 1800X, another thing worth noting.
