AMD Ryzen 7 1700x review: 29 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

8 x 3.4GHz
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX: 32 x 3GHz

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2667MHz
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X: 2933MHz

3. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
16
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX: 64

4. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
14nm
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X: 12nm

5. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4MB
Intel Xeon Phi 7235: 32MB

6. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
768KB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX: 2250KB

7. Supports 64-bit

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.

8. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
14644
Intel Xeon W-2195: 26470

9. thermal design power (TDP)

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
95W
Intel Atom E3805: 3W

10. turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
3.8GHz
Intel Core i5-7200U: 3100GHz

11. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.5MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

12. Has AES

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

19. L3 core

More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
2MB/core
Intel Core i9-7960X: 22MB/core

20. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
4800 million
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX: 9600 million

21. PCI Express (PCIe) version

PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
3
Intel Core i9-7920X: 44

22. PassMark result (single)

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
1882
Intel Core i3-7350K: 2625

23. Has FMA4

FMA4 is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
