Average Bench: 98.9% (20th of 1137)

Based on 32,637 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]

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

Playing Subnautica at maximum settings with a 1070 Ti, and the CPU's maximum load across all cores was 33%. That leaves a lot of wiggle room for OBS, and other tasks on the second monitor.

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.
