AMD Ryzen 7 1700, 1700X, 1800X Benchmarks & Performance

Without any competition from the red side for 5 years, AMD is finally back in the game with their latest CPU architecture, Zen. Zen’s based on a 14nm die process, theoretically making it on-par with Intel’s latest offerings in both energy efficiency and IPC. AMD has also come out with a new feature for AMD CPUs called SMT (Simultaneous Multi-threading) Which is comparable to Intel’s hyper threading. It essentially splits each core, giving you 16 threads on an 8 core chip capable of handling different tasks.

Here are some of Zen’s highlights according to AMD.

  • Two threads per core (SMT)
  • All new Micro-op Cache
  • Up to 20MB unified Cache
  • Two AES units for security
  • High precision Mhz boost
  • High efficiency FinFET transistors

AMD’s new processors will all use the AM4 socket, bringing DDR4, PCI-E 3.0 and a whole slew of features never before seen on AM3+ boards. It comes down to the individual board makers themselves to implement things such as USB 3.1, NVMe M.2 SSD’s and more.

The benefits and drawbacks of AMD’s Zen architecture is for a whole other article. Let’s take a look at what AMD has to offer with their new chips!
