AMD RYZEN 7 2700X Benchmark Stats Leaked Ahead of Official Launch, CPU To Rival Intel’s Skylake-X i7 7820X
Last year, we saw how the cryptocurrency rush affected the demand for more powerful graphics cards and CPUs. This 2018, it seems like the trend is still looking to bag lots of sales. That’s why industry players are fast-tracking the creation of next-generation processors with the latest news pointing towards AMD and it’s RYZEN 7 2700X, which is the direct successor to 2017’s RYZEN 7 1800X.
According to the latest update on the hardware, AMD Ryzen 7 2700X’s benchmark stats have been revealed ahead of its launch date. The new CPU was scheduled to debut mid-April on the 19th, however, an unnamed OCN user has gotten his paws on a physical version of the processor and proceeded to fill-in fans of his discovery, Wccftech reports.
The leak points out that the new RYZEN 7 2700X will come with AMD’s newest Wraith Prism cooling technology, which sees a more efficient temperature management than the standard wraith setup, ensuring better overall acoustic performance. To top it off, AMD has also chosen to install a clear fan enabling RGB illumination to the fullest — a fundamental improvement from its predecessor who only featured an RGB ring.
In terms of overclocking and standard performance, this upcoming installment runs substantially higher by 300-400 MHz than the previous iteration on both aspects. The insider was able to overclock his sample up to 4.3GHz, an already considerable increase in performance compared to the 1800X series. All this while making use of a Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5 motherboard and a Corsair H90 cooler, which isn’t exactly the best when it comes to peers inside their respective categories. To complete the setup, AMD integrated a 3600 MHz DDR4 memory into the CPU.
Overall, the AMD 7 RYZEN 2700x scored 1946 points in the Cinebench R15 test, rivaling that of Intel’s 8-core Skylake-X i7 7820X and tripling up on its kin, the FX 8370’s score –AMD’s current flagship CPU. Aside from this, it tallied a total score of 22,226 points in the 3DMark Fire Strike test. Lastly, TechRadar assured fans that the new AMD CPU will be able to harness bump ups in performance when partnered with more high-end motherboards such as ASUS’ X470 series.
