Average Bench: 81.4% (59th of 1206)

Based on 230,319 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 around 15%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by six or less cores but the 2700X offers value for money to workstation users. Even though the 2700X excels at video production, streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. [Apr '18 CPUPro]

Pro gamers avoid AMD for a reason...

Comment 

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 7 2700X owners listen up; stop "overclocking" this CPU to 4.1-4.2 GHz. Did you happen to notice on the box that it has a 4.3 GHz boost speed? You might be getting better overall multi-core (all-core) performance, particularly if you don't have the greatest cooling solution, but you're hurting your single-core performance, which may also be hurting your performance in games. This CPU is smarter than you are. With 2nd gen Ryzen (Zen+), AMD has improved SenseMI with Extended Frequency Range (XFR) 2 and Precision Boost (PB) 2 having more aggressive algorithms that will boost more cores to higher frequencies if you keep it cool (AMD says 60°C or below is best, which can be very difficult to achieve). In fact, that 4.3 GHz printed on the box is actually more like 4.35 GHz and it will definitely boost to that speed on individual cores, even using the stock cooler (which is pretty decent). That is, of course, if you don't do a locked-in, manual, all-core "overclock" because you're unlikely to achieve 4.3-4.35 GHz. If you really feel like you need to overclock, do a PBO overclock so that you can still get those high single-core speeds. The only exception to this might be for content creators/rendering workloads or running all-core benchmarks like Cinebench because the CPU will likely never boost itself as high as you might be able to get it on all cores due to its built-in temperature thresholds via SenseMI.

This CPU is very powerful featuring 8 cores and 16 threads and the ability of overclocking. This CPU has the strength to just about do all your work, from everyday gaming to everyday workstation. It is priced very well for such a powerful CPU that will make such a powerful impact on your computer. To harness the full capability of this CPU, it would be most preferred to be paired with a strong GPU, resulting in no bottleneck and maximum capability. With the right build this CPU can be all a person would ever need, whether you plan to overclock it or not, or use the stock cooler or not, it will still be a very dynamic CPU.

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.

Paired with a GTX1080 this is a beast, great fps in 4k gaming and 4k video editing. Great value for money and includes a Wraith cooler that will cope with most scenarios when overclocked to ~4.1GHz maximum.

Using one right now, and I must say that the cooler is the only bad part of the whole package. The processor overclocks acceptably with the stock cooler under even heavy loads. Destroys video editing or photo editing. Great buy even if only used in gaming, but better used for both of the worlds, gaming and editing or work related.

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.

I was so excited to socket my Anniversary edition into my pc, that I forgot to uninstall all AMD drivers, spent all night triggering bluescreens while attempting to uninstall these drivers. Not gonna blame AMD for my own mistake of leaving old chipset drivers from my R7 1800X on my pc. Can't wait to benchmark it. 4ghz all core turbo on 33°C idle in Taskmanager is already looking rock solid, and that's while I was fixing this mess.

This processor is a monster. Once did a stress test by opening all 8 of my Adobe CC apps I use at the same time, and it loaded them all in less than 40 seconds using only 30% of my 32GB of RAM. Sure, the i7 and i9 are technically better, but this this is an absurdly powerful processor for photography and 1080p video.

AMD nailed it with their most recent series. The price to performance of the Ryzen chips is absolutely worth the 10 or 11 frames you sacrifice to Intel's more pricey line. Ryzen 5 hits the sweet spot for price to performance gaming, but when it comes to that little extra for video editing and render the 8 cores of Ryzen 7 (compared to the 6 cores of Ryzen 5) is worth that little extra cash. Overall, the 2600X is without a doubt worth every penny.
