AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor Review – 2nd Gen Ryzen
Memory Bandwidth Benchmarks
SiSoftware Sandra Platinum 2017 24.61 Memory Bandwidth: link
SiSoftware Sandra Platinum is a utility, which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. This test has been popular for CPU and memory benchmarks for well over a decade and it is one of the easiest benchmarks out there to run.
FinalWire AIDA64 v5.97 – link
AIDA64 provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring either the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
Memory Bandwidth Results Summary: The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X performs well and had basically the same memory bandwidth as the Ryzen 7 1800X. Not a big shocker here since both are being run on the same platform. There was a significant decrease in memory latency though as we found almost a 12% reduction in memory latency with the same kit and timings being used on the ASUS X470 board. AMD’s performance slide noted an 11% improvement in memory latency and we can confirm that to be true. That said, Intel memory latency with the same DDR4 3200MHZ CL16 memory kit was down at 46.5 ns, which is over 30% lower than AMD’s flagship Zen+ part.
