AMD Ryzen™ 7 1700, S AM4, 8 Core, 16 Thread, 3.0GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo, 16MB Cache, 65W, CPU, Retail, w/ Wraith Spire Cooler is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CPU Bought this to replace my ancient amd 1090T 6 core and the performance difference is huge. Slapped a huge Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4 cooler on to it and cranked it to 3.8Ghz with no problem keeping it as 65c at continuous 100% load while 3d rendering. Very happy with this CPU

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant CPU! Pros • Handles any task I throw at it • Runs very cool • Great value • Overclocked to 4Ghz easily (my personal experience, others may vary) Cons None! It's great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this cpu if you still on AM3+ socket i would say this is the best CPU to upgrade to if your lookign for high core count and not a big content creater its perfict for games

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent processor glad to see AMD back Got the Ryzen 7 1700 on Friday do not see the point of getting the other higher models as it is the same chip. There were some issues with temperature readings, a bios update fixed that straight away. I am not a heavy gamer but is more than capable when paired with a good gpu, as a software engineer i hope this chip really performs well and i would recommend. Runs really cool ,30 degrees on idle/light workload, and has not gone above 50 degrees when gaming or on a heavier workload, that is using the stock cooler they provide which looks really nice with the RGB ring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryzen best value for money CPU with a funky cooler Excellent CPU and the stock cooler with its LED lights makes it great value for money. I have been gaming with this CPU and can play Nier Automata in 4K with no issues. Excellent for multitasking and VR. I cannot recommend this CPU enough. Glad I went for this over Intel as it allowed me to spend more on the graphics card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome CPU Running 2 of these since they came out. Not only fast / easily overclockable & cheap compared to Intel 16 thread offerings - but positively chilly on stock cooler plus saves on the leccy bill. Not the fastest for gaming apparently - but I haven't noticed any issues - & a fast video card is more important. Runs everything smoothly without complaint. Well recommended. Great job AMD. Decent competition to Intel has to be good for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The price / performance here is so good it's actually disgusting First, a disclaimer: if you're mainly someone who just games, surfs the web and watches YouTube or Twitch, the Ryzen 5 platform has you covered. Even the upcoming Ryzen 3 platform are 4 core 4 thread CPUs which could get the job done at a very compelling price point, however they are most certainly a budget option as the longevity of 4C/4T CPUs purchased in 2017 is very dubious. That said, I firmly believe the Ryzen 7 1700 will go down in history as one of the best price / performance options we've seen - like Intel's i5 2500k. The Ryzen 7 1700, when overclocked, quite comfortably trades blows with Intel's i7 6900k which will set you back £750+. The typical rule for buying mid- to high-end CPUs for the last decade has been to buy the best i5 or i7 you can afford. This is because Intel had a massive advantage in single-threaded performance, while AMD offered more (individually weaker) cores. Some programs didn't scale very well with higher core counts - games being a notable example - so AMD's products weren't really viable. With Ryzen they have improved their single-threaded performance massively. It's just more than a 52% improvement in IPC, which is how many Instructions Per Clock the CPU can process. Put another way, it measures how much work the CPU will do at a certain speed. Intel's line-up typically sees a 5% improvement in IPC over their previous CPUs. Ryzen's ~52% jump sees AMD close the gap rather dramatically, and that's with them continuing to offer more cores and threads at the same price point than Intel. At the super low-end, the Pentium G4560 from Intel is likely to go unopposed. The Ryzen 3 platform offers 4 core, 4 thread CPUs which are far superior to Intel's i3 processors which only have 2 cores and hyper-threading. The Ryzen 5 trade blows with Intel's i5. Benchmarks favour the i5 for the most part, but with the i5 hitting 100% utilization in games such as Battlefield 1 and GTA V, it's difficult to say for sure. If you run other programs (Spotify, Chrome, Steam, etc.) in the background, you'll want Ryzen's extra cores and threads. With Ryzen 7, justifying the purchase of an i7 is very difficult. They just aren't worth the price. tl;dr: For a decade, "which CPU should I buy?" has been answered with an i5 or an i7. Intel are still trying to those same products with only incremental improvements. AMD have actually released something new, something better, and you can see from the lack of a response from Intel how much they've allowed their products to stagnate. AMD have eclipsed Intel... for now.

Questions & Answers

Does this CPU feature XFR?

Asked by: Jahoker
Yes. The Ryzen 7 1700 has a limited implementation of XFR. The 1700X and 1800X get a boost of +100 MHz. The 1700 gets +50 MHz from XFR.

Could I get this cpu to 4GHz on an all in one cooler?

I am running a kraken x52 currently I was wondering could I get this CPU to run a stable 4GHz on this cooler.
Asked by: Thomas1996
It's very possible. I have mine at 4Ghz with a AIO. At idle, mine is around 30c, and under heavy load it's never been over 60c
