Average Bench: 99.1% (15th of 1122)

Based on 13,412 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F82 Model: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Eight-Core Processor

The 8 core, 16 thread 2700X is AMD’s second generation Ryzen 7 flagship following in the wake of the Ryzen 7 1800X which continues to offer excellent multi-core value for money. This new Pinnacle Ridge processor features the Zen+ architecture with 12nm lithography compared to 14nm previously. Whilst there is no increase in the number of cores, the stock base / boost clocks appear to have received a bump up to 3.7 / 4.3 GHz from 3.6 / 4.0 GHz. The 2700X is compatible with both the new 400 series and 300 series of motherboards. Early benchmarks indicate that the 2700X has a slightly greater effective speed than the 1800X, although further benchmarks are necessary to quantify this. The expected launch price of $329 includes a Wraith Prism cooler and is in the same price bracket as the 1800X and Intel’s Coffee Lake i7-8700K. Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users. [Apr '18 CPUPro]

And we're off.... the 8700K at its current price-point is the champ it needs to beat. To my view, if they want to take a bite out of the gamer market, it's going to need to get a lot closer to the Intel i7s' single- and quad-core performance, if it's only going to be fifty bucks or so less. If the multi-core performance can sustain itself well above the i7, at a lower cost, while still being speedy at desktop apps, it will be the go-to chip for content producers: audio and video rendering, etc. But here's a huge market: amateur or freelance content creators who only have a single all-purpose machine. I wonder how many might not have gone for a Ryzen 1k thinking it would nerf their gaming or general-purpose use? The 2k line could disrupt that if they've done it right.—Apr '18

Ryzen has improved the Memory Latency and the Overclock Potential in the second gen of Ryzen (Zen+) but still a little bit behind the 8700K, but keep in mind that you will get a 8Core CPU + one beautiful Stock Cooler which its much better for non-Gamers; Ryzen Gaming Is Good But Not Perfect, for example, u will get 140FPS with Ryzen when 8700K gives you 155FPS, I personally Use 1700X for Gaming and its very good but not Perfect, keep in mind.

Horribly disappointing. The multi-core gains over the 8700K are unimpressive, minimal - and for it you sacrifice a huge amount of more basic performance. If their target market was content creators, they've failed. Anyone who doesn't have a dedicated production machine - freelancers and other small-business creators - will have one mutlipurpose machine. This chip's the same price as the 8700K so there's not even the advantage of saving your budget. For these piddly multi-core gains, which will make rendering and production *slightly* faster, you have a slower desktop, gaming machine, everything else. Ugh. Fail.
