AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X Review

Out of the Box Performance: CINEBENCH, wPrime, and AIDA64














AIDA64 Memory Bandiwdth




AIDA64 Memory Latency




CINEBENCH multi-threaded is where Zen shines really bright, and where Zen+ shines even brighter, and the results show AMD's improvements both in single core performance and multi-core over Ryzen 1000 series. Its single core performance has been increased due to XFR 2 and the process improvements, and we see it beat out the i5-8400 in single core performance and multi-core.



Wprime is a heavily multithreaded application that calculates prime numbers, and AMD's 2600X is closing the gap against comparable Intel CPUs. FPU tests are where we see our normal Ryzen/Coffee Lake trend; floating point goes to Intel while integer goes to AMD. Memory bandwidth is very similar, but memory latency has been improved by a decent amount on Zen+ compared to Zen.
