AMD Ryzen 7 1700 and 1700X CPU Review

Resident Evil 6 shows us that frequency plays a big role in the score. GTA:V, Ashes of the Singularity, and Rise of the Tomb Raider show us that at higher resolutions (QHD and UHD), the GPU becomes a bottleneck (unless of course, you have very nice GPUs), and it doesn't matter how fast or powerful the CPU is.


However, if you upgrade your GPU often and your CPU rarely, then it might make sense to stick with a gaming CPU. Gaming is Ryzen's Achilles heel if every last FPS counts, but most people won't notice a 5-FPS difference in real life (unless you are under 60FPS).
