AMD Ryzen Benchmarks Posted Ahead of Release

Category: CPU's
Posted: 04:19AM

Today is the release date for the AMD Ryzen CPUs, and an embargo time on reviews of 9AM CT has users waiting a few more hours to see how the chips perform. However, for anyone unwilling to wait, Reddit user suet0604 had a pre-ordered Ryzen 7 1700X delivered early, and decided to post some benchmarks. The CPU was paired with an Asus Crosshair VI Hero motherboard, 16GB 3200MHz G.Skill DDR4, and a Radeon R9 390X. In the 720p version of the built-in CS:GO benchmark, the system was able to hit 289.91 fps, while an Intel i5 6600K running at 4.6GHz with a GeForce GTX 1070 only hit ~250 fps. The 1700X also performed well in the 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark with a score of 18,229, placing it a few thousand points ahead of the similarly priced i7 6800K, and also beating the leaked benchmark score for the 1700X. The 1700X also managed to top the i7 6900K in both the single and multi-threaded CPU-Z test with scores of 2159 vs. 1901 and 18298 vs. 13152, respectively. These numbers certainly bode well for the latest from AMD, and it will be interesting to see if the other benchmarks that arrive today paint a similar picture.

You can't beat the prices AMD set for Ryzen CPU's,.. the egg has 1700X for $399.99 free shipping,.. but most AM4 motherboards are sold out today or pre-order released over next two weeks, the Asus Crosshair X370 board is only $254.99.


Looking forward to OCC reviews of Ryzen CPU's & X370 Motherboards,.. see how loud the 1700X screams when Frank puts the juice to it. :yes:
