AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor Review – 2nd Gen Ryzen


7-Zip, CPU-Z, 3DMark & Cinebench

7-Zip 18.01 – link

7-Zip is a file archiver with a high compression ratio. 7-Zip is free software with open source.

CPU-Z 1.84 – link

CPU-Z is a freeware that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system. CPU-Z also has a built-in benchmark that has become pretty popular since this application is widely used. The benchmark computes a 2-dimensional noise function, that could typically be used in a game to generate a procedural map. The code is written in C++, and compiled with Visual C++ 2008. No special instruction set is used, but the x64 version uses scalar SSE/SSE2 instructions to achieve floating point operations, whereas the 32-bit version keeps using the legacy x87 instructions, resulting in almost half of the x64 performance.

Futuremark 3DMark 2.4.4264 – link

3DMark is a popular gaming performance benchmark that includes everything you need to benchmark your PC whether you’re gaming on a desktop PC, laptop, notebook, or a tablet. 3DMark includes seven benchmark tests and we’ll be running ‘Sky Diver’ that is aimed at gaming laptops and mid-range PCs.

Fire Strike Benchmarks Results Summary: When it comes to 3DMark Fire Strike we found the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has an overall score of 19,930 points whereas the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X came in with a score of 18,842. The overall score shows the Ryzen 7 2700X is almost 6% faster than the Ryzen 7 1800X, but that isn’t enough to catch the Intel Core i7-8700K’s overall score 21,801. The AMD Ryzen 7 processors dominate in the graphics and physics test, but come up short in the combined test and that is one of the key reasons the overall score is lower.

Maxon Cinebench R15.038 – link

CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software Cinema 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Iron Man 3, Oblivion, Life of Pi or Prometheus and many more.

Cinebench Benchmarks Results Summary: Cinebench has been a popular CPU benchmark in recent years and we found the Ryzen 7 2700X coming in with a score of 1813 points on the multi-CPU test and 179 on the single-cpu test. This is a nice jump up over the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, so good job to AMD on those small IPC refinements and higher core frequencies as we are seeing a 10.8% increase in multi-core performance and 14.7% in single-core performance. This is a nice performance bump between the flagship processors for these two generations!
