AMD Ryzen 7 1700 OCed To 4.0GHz On Stock Air Cooler & Benchmarked

Khalid Moammer

AMD's most affordable Ryzen 7 part, the $329 1700, is a force to be reckoned with when overclocked if these benchmarks are anything to go by. Whats more, this 65W part is said to be a decent overclocker, reaching 4.0GHz on the boxed stock Wraith cooling unit that comes with it.

This leak comes via a user on the Baidu Chinese forums who has managed to get his hands on a retail 1700 boxed unit before the official launch of the Ryzen 7 series tomorrow.  But as always, take this leak like any other with a healthy dose of salt.

Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocked to 4.0GHz On AMD's Stock Wraith Air Cooler


This is the cooling unit that comes boxed with every 1700 chip and the one that has allegedly been used to achieve this 4.0GHz overclock. It's called the Wraith Spire and offers 95 watts of cooling, making this 4.0GHz result all that more impressive. The overclock was achieved with an X370 motherboard. The system was also equipped with 16GB of DDR4 memory of an unknown speed. The benchmarks include 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme and CPU-Z's built-in single & multihreaded tests.

So without any further delay, let's dig into the numbers!

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocked To 4.0GHz - Outperforms Stock i7 6900K & Overclocked i7 6800K @ 4.2GHz

The tested system was equipped with one GTX 1060 graphics card, 16GB of unknown speed DDR4 memory and the overclocked Ryzen 7 1700 running at 4.0GHz. The CPU managed to achieve a physics score of 20,184. This score puts it firmly ahead of the i7 6900K running at stock and even an i7 6800K overclocked to 4.2GHz, which score 18635 and 18961 respectively.

Ryzen 7 1700 @ 4.0GHz - Single-Threaded & Multithreaded CPU-Z

The second test we have is even more impressive. Here the 1700 running at 4.0GHz scores 2251 points in the single-threaded part of the benchmark. We grabbed the official list off the CPU-Z validator site for reference. At 4.0GHz the 1700 outperforms every single CPU other than the 7700K in single-threaded performance. Which turbos to 4.5GHz in this test and scores 2301 points.


Very Impressive, But Again Wait For Reviews

As always, take these synthetic tests with the usual grain of salt and make sure to check out the comprehensive independent product reviews that are coming out tomorrow. AMD's Ryzen 7 lineup which is comprised of the Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700 will officially ship to customers on March 2nd and are currently available for pre-order worldwide.
