AMD is set to launch their refreshed Ryzen 7 2700X in the coming weeks, with reviews already going live from CPC Hardware.
According to their review, we should expect an additional 4% in gaming performance over the Ryzen 7 1700X in games like GTA5, GRID Autosport, Battlefield 4, ARMA 3, X3:TC, Witcher 3 and COH2.
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.
