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]

A decent CPU, however, stuck inside the smaller chassis of the Alienware 15 R3 (2017) it continually thermal throttles. This makes the main positive aspect of this chip, being unlocked, pretty much useless as the temperatures will rise too much for overclocking to be useful. Even without overclocking this chip runs very hot. Only recommended for 17 inch sized laptops.  [Dec '19 ThreeAreLeft]
