After much anticipation, the Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1700 CPUs are finally here. The internet has been buzzing since launch and not everything has been in-favor of the new architecture. My personal experience so far has been great, really, and I feel AMD has delivered this time. Going into development they had a fairly lofty goal of a 40% IPC (instructions per clock) gain over "Excavator," the last generation in their K15 architecture line. So AMD gathered together a formidable team of engineers and went to work.

Yay Johan, reading it now!

Edit: Great article Johan! Enjoyed it greatly, and mirror what we have found in the community regarding the 1700 & 4.0ghz.

Very nice write up Johan this will give me even more to consider when choosing between the 1700 or 1700X. I had been leaning to the 1700X, probably still going that route but will certainly give this another read when I get home to ight on a big screen .... might just go with a 1700.

Nice review Shawn :thup:



Seeing how ryzen is overclocking it will be short guide :D

True enough, there are a few things to mention around memory and P-States but a lot depends on motherboard options right now.

On ASUS Prime X370-Pro it looks like ... set x40 cpu ratio, set 1.4-1.43V cpu voltage, enable XMP/DOCP ( adjust main timings if you wish ), end :) .. there is barely anything else that affects OC on ambient temps.
