    It would have been nice if you'd put the previous gen overclock results next to the overclocked results of these.

    I think AMD need to move from playing catchup and offering like for like performance to Intel to being more of a leader. It's the only way we'll see some innovation....

    There's more than 4.15GHz in the 2700X.

    I presume you only read the gaming benchmarks?

    Stuff like fluid dynamics, code compilation, 3D modelling AMD seem to be winning and sometimes quite solidly.

    This is fair TBH. Having said that any chance of a RAM scaling review with the Core i7 8700K included??

    Are you going to make a Ryzen 7 2700 review too? I'm interested how it perform against the i7 8700K or non K and the power draw.

    I have only just got around to looking at reviews,but it does appear the memory controller is somewhat better at running higher speed RAM.

    BTW,I have compiled a list of reviews here:

    If there is one I have missed please add it to the thread!

    BTW,AT got some interesting results for their review,but have applied the full Spectre/Meltdown patches. I believe TR did too. Did Hexus do so?? Not sure what to make of them!

    It looks like system bang-for-buck, the new Ryzen wipes the floor with Intel. Even in the gaming b/marks, which was Ryzen's achilles heel, there is hardly any difference with Intel's more expensive offerings. In proper work-focussed tasks it is streets ahead.
    Intel should be very worried.

    Re: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X

    IPC x single-core frequency will remain Intel's domain for a while. This is why AMD typically offers more cores for the same price, and brute power wins out in well-threaded applications.
    The 6C/12T 2600X basically matches the 6C/12T 8700k in every other benchmark on that page, apart from the slightly weird and unrepresentative PiFast holdout (unless someone actually wants a CPU to run PiFast on). That's despite the clocks being higher on the Intel part, if anything.

    I'm not saying it's not fine to include old synthetic benchmarks, but I think far too much attention is paid to it as the single threaded Hexus benchmark, even in conclusions. It's probably about as representative of real-world performance of any of the Geekbench sub-benchmarks for example.

    That's an interesting question, because looking at that set of benchmarks the 2700X trounces the 8700K at 1080p compared to what is shown here. Either way I'm also wondering if AMD has held back a 2800X deliberately while waiting for the standard Intel response.

    Great looking CPU for the price though, I've really got to think about upgrading, memory and gpu pricing is making me hold off though.
