If you can’t wait a week or so for the official launch (if the rumors are to be believed) and need another Ryzen fix now, you’ve got it. This time, it’s the 1700X that has been spoiled: Fire Strike and Cinebench numbers have been released, along with images of the processor. If you want to compare some of this data with the competition, you may want to look at our Kaby Lake 7700K vs Sandy Bridge 2600K IPC Review.
In Fire Strike, you can see the 1700X attained 17,916 in the physics test with an average of over 56fps. Using ZDNet's CPUmark, the new AMD CPU got a score of 583. That's a little better than the 8C/16T Intel Core i7-5960X Processor Extreme Edition could achieve. Maxon's Cinebench test gave the 1700X a score of 1,537, more significantly improved over the Core i7 5960X (which scores 1,318 according to VideoCardz). Last but not least, the CPU-Z screens show that the 8C/16T 14nm AMD Ryzen 7 1700X runs at 3,500MHz, and the tested system used 2,132MHz memory.
