AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocking – Best Ryzen Processor?

Jump To:

Power Consumption

No review is complete without taking a look at power and the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 actually did really well considering it is an 8-core processor with a 65W TDP.

power consumption 1700

At idle the stock AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU used 42.6W at idle and 124W in Handbrake. When we overclocked the CPU up to 4.0 GHz at 1.3875V we noticed that the idle went up to 51.1W and 214W in handbrake, so overclocking up to 4.0 GHz will drastically increase this processors power consumption. Using 72.5% more power in Handbrake was honestly more than we expected, but the temperatures weren’t bad and that is barely more than the Intel Core i7-6900K in that test.
