The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 is the least powerful of three new Ryzen 7 CPUs. The 1700 model has base and turbo clocks of 3.0 and 3.7 GHz respectively. Both of its more expensive siblings, the 1700X and 1800X, have higher clocks but they also have TDPs of 95 watts whereas the 1700 is rated at just 65 watts. Comparing IPC between Ryzen and Kaby Lake shows that Kaby Lake leads by a maximum of 9% which is great news for workstation users as this allows the 1700 to beat Intel's 6850K in multi-core workloads at almost half the price. Although the 1700 has great IPC it's somewhat limited by its relatively low (by Kaby Lake standards) clock speed which holds it back a little in both gaming and desktop workloads. For multi-core workstation use, the Ryzen 7 1700 represents the best value for money we have ever seen. [Mar '17 CPUPro]

The Core i7-6800K is the weakest of four new 14 nm Broadwell-E prosumer CPUs. This model has six cores with base and turbo frequencies of 3.4 and 3.8 GHz, a TDP of 140 watts and 28 PCIe 3.0 lanes. The 6800K closely matches, and supersedes, the very popular Haswell-E 5820K. Because of its MSRP of around $500, this CPU only makes sense for niche use cases which include graphics design, video production or multi GPU gaming. Comparing the 6800K and 6700K shows that for typical desktop use, at stock clocks, the 6800K actually lags the 6700K by around 10%. This is because desktop computing largely depends on single core performance and the Skylake i7-6700K is both clocked higher (Base clock 4.0 GHz vs 3.4 GHz) and has higher IPC due to its one generation lead over the 6800K. If the 6800K proves to be a capable overclocker then it may challenge the 6700K on a range of core-heavy use cases, time will tell. [Jun '16 CPUPro]
