AMD Ryzen 2700X Review

AMD Ryzen 2700X Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $329.00
The release of AMD’s Ryzen series of processors last year made a massive splash in the market. The increased core count of the first generation Ryzen series made the 1700x and 1800x a very solid choice for gamers and content producers alike, and the Ryzen 2 series has only built upon that solid foundation with the 2700X set to compete directly with the Intel Core i7-8700k.


The second generation of Ryzen processors are improved versions of the first, and feature higher clock speeds and improved features over all. This is a very encouraging direction for AMD, as its not only outperforming its own previous series by a substantial margin but also threatening Intel’s top spot.

The very reasonable price point that this CPU has been released at along with a fantastic out of the box cooler, has made the 2700X the price/performance king in the consumer CPU market.

If you're building yourself a new rig, have a look at our best graphics cards chart for 2018.

PRICE
The Ryzen 7 2700x will retail at £299 / $329.

While this is more expensive than the model of the previous generation that shares its name, the Ryzen 7 1700X, the 2700X is the current top offering in this second generation as there is no 2800X.

The 2700x also comes with an extremely competent cooler, the Wraith Prism, which competes with top of the line air-coolers from other manufacturers. This makes the processor an extremely attractive option everything considered, as the main rival from Intel Core i7-8700k costs £319 / $349, and you’ll need to buy a cooler on top of that too.

FEATURES AND SPECS
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X features an 8 core / 16 thread configuration like the previous generation, but has seen a significant speed increase with a 3.7GHz base clock and a 4.3GHz boost.

This increase in performance is largely from the 2nd Generation’s new 12nm Zen+ architecture making some very considerable performance increases of roughly 16% and a reduction in power draw to the tune of 11% over the last generation.

While we are seeing the new X470 platform for these CPUs that will provide better power efficiency and delivery, it’s worth noting than the second generation Ryzen processors will also be useable on older AM4 chips (although they will require a BIOS update).
The newer platforms will enable the Precision Boost 2 feature, which will increase the frequencies across all threads helping out with heavy workloads such as content creation or gaming. AMD retains its enthusiasm towards overclocking with the Extended Frequency Range 2 being active on all cores across the CPU, rather than just one.

AMD has also introduced StoreMI technology which intelligently stores your most uses files, making them faster for your machine to load each time. StoreMI does use up to 2GB of system memory to operate, but it’s still a fantastic option feature that AMD is including on all its second generation CPUs.

BENCHMARKS
We've compared the 2700X against its most common competitors, you'll find the results below (2700X in light blue).

Nokia 7.1 Review

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?
The Nokia 7.1 is a familiar mid-range phone for the end of 2018: a notch, big bottom chin and dual cameras. But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
