AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Overclocked Up To 4.3 GHz (1.4V) Across All Cores in First Preview Testings – Detailed CPU Benchmarks

Apr 7, 2018

We also have the latest AMD Ryzen 7 2700X previews which talk a lot about the overclock potential and CPU performance tests from El Chapuzas Informatico and Hardware Numb3rs. The new bench marks come right after we posted new tests for the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 CPU over here.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU Benchmarked, Up To 4.3 GHz Potential Showed in Previews

Update: HardwareNumb3rs seems to have posted the latest Cinebench R15 performance score for the Ryzen 7 2700X at 4.30 GHz across all cores and also 4.35 GHz CPU validation as tweeted by him.


It’s relatively easier to acquire a Ryzen 2000 series processor since several stores around the globe seem to be not giving a damn about AMD’s NDA anyway and selling them to users. We alone have posted two stories about users who got their Ryzen 2000 series processor from a local store. One user was based in Chile and bought the Ryzen 5 2600 while the other user got hands on the Ryzen 7 2700X CPU. The same Ryzen 7 2700X chip is now in the hands of Hardware Numb3rs who will be publishing a full review really soon. This chip does 4.3 GHz across all cores at 1.4V and you can see more results over here.

As for the review from El Chapuzas Informatico, their CPU was tested on the ASRock X370 Killer SLI with G.Skill’s FlareX DDR4 memory clocked at 3200 MHz. Cooler used was the stock AMD bundled Wraith Prism which adds a mix of RGB lighting and looks really fantastic.

As expected, the chip runs at 4.35 GHz on a single core but lacks behind the Skylake CPUs in single core performance results. However, the eight cores and 16 threads help this chip deliver better MT (Multi-Threading) results. This is also the only testing which shows the Ryzen 7 2700X featuring poor latency compared to the Ryzen 7 1700X on the same memory configuration.

Same goes for the memory read, write and copy speeds. In 3DMark Firestrike, the chip scores a stock score of 16,271 points while the Core i7-8700K scores 16,840 points. The site didn’t run any gaming tests due to stability issues and frequent crashes as pointed out by the quote below:

Note: We have not been able to test games because the platform became unstable when opened , with crashes shortly after starting or even blue screenshots. Not having specific drivers for the new generation, it’s something that could happen, but the funny thing is that it only happens in games , which would foreseeably be his weak point against Intel, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to know if this will continue to be the case. ECI

One of the better part of the review is the temperature which even with the stock cooler, the chip stayed at a cool 31C (idle) and 56C (load) under 20C ambient temps. The cooler performed really well with good noise levels, 40 dB to be exact however, heavier loads could lead up to 45 dB noise output. That would probably be a rare scenario considering the great temps.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Early Preview by HardwareNumb3rs:

As for power consumption, AIDA64 revealed that the system consumed 200W (no dGPU or HDD) at full load. When it came to overclocking, the chip only managed 4.2 GHz with 1.4V. There are still no gaming benchmarks which most users are currently waiting to see and we may have to wait till the 19th to see more results.
