Ryzen 7 1700 testing
     Sun, Mar 12 2017 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I still have a lot of questions to be answered surrounding the current performance and infrastructure for AMD Ryzen CPUs, but my time overclocking with the Ryzen 7 1700 has given me reason to believe AMD has a solid solution on its hands. For those enthusiasts and gamers that are willing to get their hands dirty with some overclocking, and that it seems all Ryzen processors perform similarly when it comes to headroom, buying the lowest priced part for your next productivity rig is an excellent option. Thanks to the ease of access to a 4.0 GHz preset from ASUS, the $329 Ryzen 7 1700 was able to match or slightly exceed the single threaded performance of the $499 1800X. For multi-threaded workloads, it offers even more of an advantage."

One Motherboard Maker Explains Why AMD AM4 Boards Are Missing
     Fri, Mar 10 2017 | 12:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you’ve looked at building an AMD Ryzen 7 system you’ll find that the processors are pretty easy to find, but good luck finding a motherboard. Most of the AMD motherboards based on the X370 and B350 chipsets are out of stock and back-ordered. It doesn’t matter what brand you are looking for as ASUS, ASRock, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI are all selling out quickly due to the limited quantities available. Over the past 72 hours we’ve reached out to all of the board makers and AMD to see if we can figure out what is going on...

Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti CPU Showdown: i7 7700k Vs Ryzen R7 1800x Vs i7 5820k
     Fri, Mar 10 2017 | 12:13A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There’s been a lot of chatter online this last few weeks about Ryzen. AMD themselves wanted people to know just how well the chip could compete with Intel, either at stock clocks or by overclocking the AMD chip to bring it up to and over the performance of the Intel offerings. Of course, the key factor after that was to give you comparable performance, yet do it at a lower price point. What better way (and if you have a better way, we’ll do our best to test it) to find out the performance than putting the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti 11GB graphics card in our MSI X370 XPOWER Gaming Titanium AM4 motherboard with the flagship AMD 1800X processor and testing the heck out of it. Then we’ll put it in our usual Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1 2011-3 with the Intel Core i7 5820K processor, which we use to test all of our graphics cards. Then to keep things fresh, we’ll throw the Intel i7-7700K into a Gigabyte Aorus Z270 motherboard, and put simply, see what happens when we fire up a few games! We recently tested the 1800X and were very impressed with its performance; you can check out the review here. We saw many comments about Ryzen not being ideal for gaming, which we think relates to bugs with memory performance. By diving into these further tests today, we hope to clear some of that up and see how it does at 1080P, 1440P and 2160P (better known as 4K to the cool kids). If you want to learn more about the hardware this feature focuses on, Check out our review of the Ryzen 1800X here, the MSI X370 AM4 Motherboard here, and the GTX 1080 Ti here. However, if you just want to look at some lovely scoreboards for games, head on over to the next few pages!

Posted by: STAFF
The day of Ryzen has finally come and while I’m sure many of you have been eagerly awaiting this, we’ve been even more excited to be some of the first people in the world to get our hands-on the new hardware and see what it can really do. There have been many leaks and lots of speculation hitting the market, and we’ve seen some cherry picked benchmarks from AMD and other sources floating around, but now it’s time to put our best foot forward and see what all the fuss is really about!

Intel 7th Generation Core i3 7350K Processor
     Tue, Mar 07 2017 | 3:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As a K-SKU processor, the Core i3 7350K is an overclocking enabled and unlocked processor. The expectation is that it should overclock as well as its full core count siblings, such as the Core i7 7700K. And that it does, with a fairly robust 4.9GHz clock speed with about 15 minutes worth of performance tuning. Depending on the motherboard you put this little gem in (it has to support overclocking), you should see a boost in performance across the board, which I did in each and every test. When pushed to the limit, the thermals never got out of hand, even when I was pushing the vcore up to 1.45v. Using an AIO liquid cooler helps tremendously in this aspect, but you could reach the 4.9GHz clock speed I was able to reach with a solid air cooler from Noctua or Phanteks. Priced at $169 after Intel's latest price drops, the Core i3 7350K has higher out of the box clock speeds than most of the next level up quad-core non-HT processors, such as the Core i5 7600. This should bridge the performance gap to some extent and allow the end user to still stay on budget by saving up to $70. When the first K-SKU dual-core chips were announced in 2009, it's interesting to see that trend of delivering overclocking enabled budget products for all users is still in vogue. If you are a bit budget strapped, the Core i3 7350K offers decent performance for your dollar.”

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Linux Benchmarks: Great Multi-Core Performance
     Mon, Mar 06 2017 | 2:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Yesterday we posted launch-day Ryzen 7 1800X Linux benchmarks that were particularly appealing for multi-core / heavily-threaded workloads like code compilation. Given all the code compilation done by Linux users in particular, if you were intrigued by the Ryzen 7 1800X performance but find the $499 USD price-tag to be too higher, today I have my initial benchmark figures on the Ryzen 7 1700. The Ryzen 7 1700 is still eight cores and sixteen threads but will only set you back $329 USD as the current low-end Ryzen processor for what's currently available."
