The Ryzen Family: Three sevens with eight cores in the second comparison

What we didn't manage with the launch article, we are happy to make up for today. Same approach, but two more Ryzen 7 CPUs in direct comparison to the top-of-the-line model that has already been tested. After all, there are currently approx. 200 Euro between the "beginner"-Mo... Benchmarks in Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) This time we have deliberately made a selection of several games that can limit both the CPU and GPU side. This saves us non-practical gimmicks with violently at 720p heru... Benchmarks in WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) Even with WQHD, the CPU can still be limited, as we will see now, although of course there are also enough counter-examples. As with Full HD, we have all the benchmarks descending according to GPU limitation so s... Important preliminary remark At the launch article of AMD's Ryzen 7 CPUs, we had already explained all wokstation and HPC benchmarks in great detail and also questioned the background for many results in some cases even haarklein. That's why... Power consumption in direct comparison We have measured all the platforms again and are also going into the race a little better cooled. But more on that. First of all, let's look at the pure values of the IDLE CPU, where a ... Summary While the Ryzen 7 1700X is still quite close to what the more expensive 1800X can do, the Ryzen 7 1700 has to be reduced due to the significantly lower bar and also a little bit more read in the explanation...

What we didn't manage with the launch article, we are happy to make up for today. Same approach, but two more Ryzen 7 CPUs in direct comparison to the top-of-the-line model that has already been tested. After all, there are currently approx. 200 euros between the "beginner" model Ryzen 7 1700 and the 1800X. The ryzen 7 1700X swirling around in the middle is more of a concern for statisticians and THE PR to close the big price gap between the cheapest and most expensive model.



We don't want to spoil big, but in the Last Judgment, the clock limit for overclocking, where everyone mercilessly beats the hour of bitter truths, all three CPUs are frighteningly equal. But at the latest then the hour of interesting desires is also shabby, because never before have 16 threads and eight real cores been so favorable. At least if you look at the Ryzen 7 1700. We had overclocked the Ryzen 7 1800X at the launch with 3.8 GHz and so also benchmarked it.


All three CPUs in today's test (the counter-test with three other real retail CPUs confirmed this) create the 3.8 GHz without thermal problems and overclocking technical tricks, thus the result of the Ryzen R7 1800X at 3.8 GHz also exam-plaular for the other two CPUs. At 3.8 GHz at the latest, they are more equal than just the same, but not in terms of price. But this part really belongs in the conclusion.



But there should also be customers who would never overclock anything in life. Whether from an attitude or the fact that the technology is to be used as a production system. That is why a medal always has two sides. In today's test, we want to find out which of the two shines more.


Test system and measurement methods


The new test system and the methodology have already been described in great detail in the basic article "How We Test Graphics Cards" (English: "How We Test Graphics Cards") and therefore, for the sake of simplicity, we now only refer to this detailed Description. So if you want to read everything again, you are welcome to do so.
