Comparison: Ryzen 7 1700 vs Core i7 7700k pros and cons

With the new Ryzen CPUs AMD tries to fight against the prelude of Intel and sets thereby besides attractive prices also more and more on clarification of the users.

Just recently, AMD has sent a comparison between the Intel Core i7 7700K and the Ryzen 7 1700X in a press release to make it clear to users what CPU delivers the better all-round performance.

Now you go back with a comparison of the smaller Ryzen 7 1700 against the popular Core i7 7700k. AMD divides the performance of the CPUs into 6 segments, which are designated with video coding, content creation, game streaming, 4K gaming, 1080p gaming and encryption. In each segment, AMD compares the two CPUs using benchmarks. These include, but are not limited to, Handbrake, Adobe Premiere CC, Povray, Blender, and other popular programs. The results have been applied to AMD on an easy-to-read Spider-Chart to demonstrate where the strengths and weaknesses of the respective CPUs lie.

AMD is quite honest, because, as many independent tests have shown, the Intel CPU is able to hold its own against the Ryzen, especially in the field of gaming. However, this only applies to 1080p gaming or even lower resolutions. Intel’s core processors currently offer more “data throughput” in games, so that when the graphics card is low, more FPS are printed on the paper. But if you load the graphics card more, for example by 4K gaming, the advantage of Intel shrinks to a small advantage.

The Intel processor can therefore only offer true advantages in gaming areas in which particularly high framerates larger than 150 FPS are required. These include, for example, E-Sports games, which are often played in low resolutions because of high frame rates. Typical casual gamers or high-end gamers, however, hardly benefit from it.

Away from the gaming, the Ryzen 7 1700 stands out clearly from the Intel i7 7770k. Especially with the particularly important point “content creation” falls the Intel CPU by 29% against the Ryzen processor back. AMD’s lead is also evident in the other areas, as the Ryzen 7 1700 can benefit from its 8 cores and 16 threads, just like the Ryzen 7 1700X. AMD’s CPU thus offers twice as many cores and threads as Intel in the approximately same price class.

AMD is with the CPU at the price is currently minimally attractive, because the Ryzen 7 1700 costs with about 315 euros well 30 euros – about 10% – less than the Intel CPU. Both CPUs are equipped with a free multiplier so that both models can be used for fast overclocking. Unlike the Intel CPUs, all Ryzen models have a free multiplier, so you do not have to pay attention to a “k-model” like Intel.

Both CPUs have their advantages and it seems, especially the Ryzen 5 1600 and Ryzen 7 1700 among the users well, because both CPUs count now beside the 7700k of Intel to the top-demanded models in the price comparisons.

For the comparisons the AMD in its duel of the CPUs pulls the following details are made:

Tests in AMD Performance Labs on March 3, 2017 on the following systems: Socket AM4: Ryzen ™ 7 1700 Processor with NVIDIA GTX 1070 6 GB Graphics Card 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 RAM, Windows 10 RS2 Operating System, Graphics Driver 21.21. 13.7633 :: 12/11/2016 Socket 1151: Z270 SLI, Core i7-7700K Processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX

1070 8GB graphics card, 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 RAM, Windows 10 RS2 operating system, graphical driver :: 12/11/2016. Compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Core i7-7700K reached 73% of the video coding performance in handbrake and 87% of the performance in Adobe Premiere CC, so the average video coding performance compared to the Ryzen 7 1700 is 80%. Compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Core i7-7700K achieved 70% of its performance in POVRay, 74% of its performance in Blender, and 69% of its performance in Cinebench – the average performance of the Ryzen 7 1700 is 71% ,

In simultaneous game streaming, de Ryzen lost 7 1700 a single image loss of less than 1% during the Core i7-7700K 18% of the total images. In the case of the VR performance in the context of benchmark tests for the games “Price of Freedom”, “Serious Sam” and “Raw Data”, the single image loss for the Ryzen 7 was 1700 as

Also the Core i7-7700K less than 1%. The results are based on estimates. Performance may vary when using the latest drivers. PC manufacturers may choose other system configurations, so the results may differ. RZN-37
