AMD Ryzen 7 1700 and 1700X CPU Review

The three Ryzen CPUs scale almost perfectly in CINEBENCH R11.5 and R15 in MP, SP, and OpenGL tests, CPU frequency is the main differentiator. It's surprising to see the 1700X beat out the 6900K in MP. The wPrime benchmark shows the same frequency scaling, in this case only the 1800X keeps up with the 6900K.


AIDA64 tests are still a bit buggy; hopefully they release an update soon. AIDA64 memory tests show that the DDR4 bandwidth performance is in line with the dual-channel Intel based system. Of course, quad-channel offers much more bandwidth than dual-channel, so that is one advantage the X99 CPUs have over Ryzen and Intel's Z270 processors.
