AMD have outdone themselves with Ryzen 7. For $329 I obtained 8 cores and 16 threads for the price of a competing i7-6700K with half the cores and threads. Overclocked the CPU on all cores to 3.7Ghz on the stock cooler to close the single threaded performance gap between the 1700 and the 7700K.
I couldn't be more happy with this CPU, great investment that will serve my needs and last me for the AM4 platforms lifetime.
Awesome CPU. Have yet to really crank it up with gaming and streaming, but I'm confident it can handle my intermediate needs very well.
Solid CPU. My problem is I don't know why it doesn't ever boost to 3.7 like it's supposed to.
Other than that it performs wonderfully
Really good processor for the money, the included cooler doesn't suck and you're able to do some pretty good overclocks on it.
For the price, there's nothing I can really complain about when it comes to its performance. At the moment, the core clock is set to 3.8ghz at 1.325v. Temperatures has not exceeded 65c through stability tests via P95 and Aida64. I may be able to tune the vcore a little better. But for now this will do.
For the tasks I throw at it, so far it hasn't given me any reason to doubt the investment. Whether it's streaming video games or watching movies while playing games, it hasn't given me problems.
Amazing processor. Overclocks quite well even with the stock cooler. Price performance is amazing.
8c/16t beast of a CPU. Basically an unbinned 1800x, truly the silicon lottery when you get this.
Really smooth experience and a powerhouse.
By far the best value out of the 8 core 16 thread Ryzen chips. I was able to achieve a stable 3.9GHz overclock albeit at a higher that I'd like voltage (being kept cool by a h110i) but not too concerened. With that overclock that makes this chip nearly as good as an 1800x. Really happy with this chip so far. Can't wait to see what happens with more optimization for Ryzen in the future.
Really nice performance for what you pay for compared to what intel offers, if you're into video editing, multitasking, gaming, virtual machines, 3d rendering (wait is that a gpu thing lol) etc.
Yes you can get 5-10% more performance on a similarly priced i7 in gaming but you'd lose ~50% on anything else.
Basically a $330 from amd vs $1000 from intel for 8 cores...
