Review: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU

AMD has been creating a real hype with its Ryzen range of processors, and with our reviews of the Ryzen 7 1800X and 1700X we found out that these are indeed a boon for content creators who want to use their PCs for more than just gaming. For anyone who’s been living under a rock, here’s a small refresher: The Ryzen CPUs are based on the new AMD Zen architecture and the AM4 socket, the direct successor to AMD’s Piledriver based FX processors with the AM3 & AM3+ sockets released over five years ago.

The latest AMD CPUs have had the fans on edge for quite some time, and it seems like the mystery can finally be put to rest. The new chip has been sighted on a few online retailer portals, like Hardwareschotte, with complete spec sheet and feature set. According to the information, the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 is an octa-core, 16-thread chip with a clock speed of 3.7 GHz and a $320 price tag. This puts it right in league with Intel’s Broadwell E i7 6900k.
