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 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cpu i got this CPU with my ASUS Prime B350 PLUS main broad, it was easy to install and runs great, i find most the time it does not use the full power, and games run great,
Date published: 2018-04-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8 cores and 16 threads for a great price I bought the Ryzen 7 1700 not long after they were first released because I was eager to build my new rig with this CPU. Granted I had my doubts, I still had to wait for the performance reviews before making the final decision - but it's a decision I don't regret at all. I did originally buy the 1700X version, but I decided to exchange it for the 1700 at the time because it was better value for money. Not only is it overclockable to have performance levels similar to the 1700X, it also comes with the Wraith Spire Cooler with an RGB ring on it. And it isn't a bad cooler, although it limits how high you can overclock the CPU before issues become a problem. But still, a nice addition to have with the CPU for the price! As for performance, admittedly there were issues when it first came out - mainly in regards to stability with higher RAM speeds. I did expect this however as the CPU was brand new with new architecture. Thankfully BIOS updates for my motherboard (ASUS B350 Prime Plus) came quickly fixing these early problems and since then the CPU has been running like a dream with the RAM clocked to the maximum the motherboard will allow. Performance wise, I have the CPU clocked at a constant 3.9ghz, (Unfortunately I didn't win the CPU lottery and I can't get it stable above this speed) and when paired with an AIO the temps hover around the 55-60 degree mark when gaming or rendering. Or both! The 8 cores and 16 threads tear through applications allowing me to do stuff that I could only dream off on my old PC. Gaming wise the performance is excellent. When paired with my PNY 1070 Founders Edition Card it's able to maintain 60fps at max settings for ever game I own at 1080p. (I don't have a 1440p monitor or a higher refresh rate on) and for me this performance is more than excellent! It'll easy push higher fps but of course, but I use vsync to stop screen tearing as my monitors are only 60Hz ones. Overall this is an excellent CPU and since launch the price has come down dramatically making the CPU even better value for money than when I bought it. If you're looking for an all-round excellent work-horse CPU but want to get the best bang for your buck, I highly recommend the Ryzen 7 1700.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silky smooth power house Wanted to upgrade my gaming rig from a FX6300-32GB-DDR3-RX460 to R7-1700-16GB-DDR4-1060 6GB The change feels as big as it looks on paper. Massive. The old system was great, this is just even smoother. The processor is running on the standard heatsink, love the multicolour LED ring, AMD logo bit bright. I can game literally for hours and you can hear the fan but it's not intrusive. I appreciate the extra cores are not utilised in most games, but i run Norton (Symantec) AV and other programs in the background, so i only allow all secondary functions like that to use cores 7/8 and i find that gaming is just smooth. The biggest surprise however is i also cryptomine cpu coins, and it is so much better than the old processor, due to the newer architecture it's nearly 4 x faster and uses less power so win-win. The old downside is that the new MB's are only DDR4, and i am still in shock over the DDR4 prices....its the only downside, but it is MASSIVE...£200 for 16GB, nearly scuppered the whole purchase and certainly the biggest factor when buying Ryzen...but if you need to move on, this is the chip to buy. (I also bought a full R7 1800X system, and this is the better chip overall) Oh 1 last thing, it is very difficult to get windows 7 working with any R7 cpus, this should be clearly stated on the website (No site tells you)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for video/picture editing and gaming Whilst not top of the Ryzen i7 range this is an excellent cpu with excellent overclocking possibilities and is superb value. I do a lot of video and picture editing with some flight sim and some gaming thrown in. Handles everything I ask of it without straining itself. Coupled with the usual excellent Scan service I rate this processor very highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from iz nice product its amazing for games and production. when you overclock it runs amazing in games even on stock cooler i got it to 3.7ghz and it dosnt run hotter then 70c and its quiet.
Date published: 2017-12-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8 cores, good bang for buck Good for environments that utilise multiple cores. Provides many cores without a high price tag. This chip will serve you well in a video editing or 3D rendering environment where more cores are useful. Come with best stock cooler I've ever seen. Stock cooler is RGB lit, quiet, and actually good at cooling the chip. Cooler easily mounts to the motherboard socket with four screws, which is a vast improvement over old AMD stock coolers and current Intel stock coolers. Performs well in games, but this CPU should not be your first choice if the sole purpose of the machine you build is to game, as per-thread performance is still more important than number of cores for games. For games, it would be better to pick a cheaper CPU with fewer cores such as an R5 1600, or a CPU with greater per-thread performance in a similar price category such as the i5 8600k.

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

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
The AIO will be able to handle the CPU at 4GHz. The problem you may have is getting the CPU stable at that speed in general. It won't be anything to do with the AIO being able to handle the heat, it's whether the CPU can maintain that speed at all due to the silicon lottery. For example, I can only get my 1700 stable at 3.9Ghz no matter what I try unfortunately. :(
