AMD Ryzen 7 1700 and 1700X CPU Review

If you are even slightly interested in AMD's new Ryzen processors, make sure you guys take a moment today to check out this AMD Ryzen 7 1700 and 1700X review over at TweakTown today.

I recently took a look at AMD's top dog Ryzen 7 1800X 8-core/16-thread CPU, and while it's multi-core performance was dangerously fast, it also costs upwards of $500. AMD also launched two more affordable models, with identical core counts and even the same amount of cache. These two processors do have lower clock speeds. Now, I already went over the microarchitecture, chipset, and 1800X in my review located here. Today, I will exclusively cover the Ryzen 7 1700 and 1700X CPUs.
