- Price for performance can't be beat vs. 1st gen Ryzen and existing Intel CPUs; i.e. the 2700X is $30 cheaper than a 8700K
- Backward compatible with X370 and B350 motherboards (with the right BIOS update)
- Noticeable higher clock speeds vs. 1700X, especially under full load - up to 500Mhz faster clock speeds!
- Precision Boost 2.0 and XFR2 are built into the CPU, which means these features are intact and work even with an older X370 motherboard
- Improved compatibility with higher DDR4 memory speeds vs. 1700X
- Operating temperatures are about the same in spite of the fact the CPU having a 10W higher TDP rating vs. 1700X
- AMD's Ryzen Master Utility really does work!
- Wraith Prism CPU cooler is included and is adequate for stock CPU speeds
- Very limited overclocking headroom unless extreme cooling is used; i.e. LN02
- Anticipated future release of the higher clocked 2800X variant may cause buyer's remorse to those that just bought a 2700X
- Motherboard related and not really an issue of the 2700X; the X470 chipset is not really an improvement in most areas and features vs. the X370 chipset
- Best DDR4 memory speeds can only be achieved by using 2 of the 4 DIMM slots; 3666Mhz has been achieved with 2 memory sticks, but only 3200Mhz has been achieved using 4 memory sticks
- No native increase in supported PCI-E lanes (24) from the CPU (not including X470 or the upcoming Z490 chipset improvements)
Bottom line, is it worth upgrading to the 2700X? It all depends on what PC hardware you have now and how you want to spend your money. For example, if you own a GTX1060 or RX 570, a GPU upgrade will most likely give you a much better performance increase than upgrading from a 1700X to a 2700X. But, if you have a PC that's 5 years or older, I would say it might be worth upgrading if you have a need for multitasking on your computer. If you game, stream, play music, while running hardware monitoring tools all at the same time, then the 2700X is definitely for you!
My previous system was a i5 6600K @4.7Ghz, awesome build for just gaming.
Anyways, after assembling the system and powering it on for the very first time, monitor did not show anything. The system had power and all the fancy LED lights and fans were on. So what I did was swap my RAMs from A1 B1 to A2 and B2. Then the system boosted just fine! At first I thought the lastest BIOS update would fix it. But even after the latest BIOS update the system doesn't post if I install the RAMs in A1 and B1. After you move the Ram sticks to A2B2 you might want to take out the battery, disconnect the power cord and reset the CMOS by sorting the two pins.
Coming from the Intel platform I must say, the BIOS is a bit different on Ryzen. On the Skylake, I only had to adjust vcore for CPU voltage. But in Ryzen it seems there's a second voltage to look out for, SoC voltage. I manually set my voltage to 1.375 but HWinfo has shown the max it hit as 1.5v so I guess I need some more tweaking to do.
I'm using a really old Crucial 2400Mhz cl16 Ram which I bought when Intel Skylake first came out. I was able to OC it to 2700Mhz with the Intel system but couldn't do it on the Ryzen, just didn't post. Hopefully later if the Ram prices drop I would upgrade it to 3200mh c14 Ram.
After setting up the drivers I had Windows update running in background and I thought of testing out AC Origins on this system. I was gaming for a about 5 mins and notice that all fans including the CPU fan had stopped for whatever reason. And because of this the CPU temp was well over 90 degrees, so I powered it down and let it cool. After fully updating windows, I tested the game again and everything was good!
I'm going to install Adobe apps and will update more info soon.
One of most annoying issues I got is that Asus AI suite, CPU-Z and HWinfo shows completely different vcore and CPU speed readings. So I have no idea which one is right. I have yet to install Ryzen master.
Oh and right now I'm using the stock cooler that came with the 2700X and idle temps at at 43 celcius ambient at being around 24. Have to use this cooler until I get the AM4 mounts for my NH-D15.
I got the mounting kit for my Noctua NH-D15 and now my system idles at 30 celcius while being OC'ed to 4.22Ghz at 1.4v in BIOS! Huge thermal headroom compared to the stock cooler. When all cores are stressed to 100% it peaks at 60 degress! With stock cooler without OC it goes into 80s.
UPDATE 29-May-2018 OVERCLOCKING:
When i first got the CPU i found that 1.425v in BIOS with LLC on Auto gave me a rock solid 4.2Ghz OC. But then I kept seeing this strange vcore changes. At idle, the vcore stays around 1.4v to1.412v. But when I stress the CPU with any intensive task, the vcore drops and stays around 1.362v! That was weird. Less vcore with stress and more vcore when idle. lol
So what I did was after a couple of tests, I manually set my vcore in BIOS to 1.387v and LLC to 5 and now the system always at this vcore even when stressed to 100% and even in idle! NICE. I found that LLC5 was needed to keep my vcore there. When i set the LLC to 4, the vcore drops down from 1.387v to 1.362v when stressed and causes Prime95 to crash. With LLC5 it stays at 1.387v when stressed with Prime95 and I didn't even had to raise the vcore!
So in short, please don't leave the vcore and LLC on Auto. When you OC please set your LLC too.

Games performance excellent, no longer a huge gap between Intel and AMD in the gaming performance. Plus with this over the 8700k you get 2 more cores for editing , rendering, streaming etc...
Incredible value for an 8core 16t chip. Cant wait to see how it ages and what bios updates come for performance in the future.
EDIT- I will update this review after I use the Asus x470-i board and see what this chip can do on x470 platform.
EDIT- been using the Asus x470-i board for over a week now, definitely more stable OCs on it, more then likely because the Asus board has better quality vrms and more of them. I was able to get my ram stable at 3400mhz cl16 and got my cpu stable at 4.225 and bclk frequency set at a value of 101, voltages at 1.36 for cpu and ram. Got 1936 in cinebench! However my daily stable overclock is 3400 ram cl16 , 4.2 GHz cpu and blck of 100. With x470 boards having alot more oc stability and better vrm cooling , I would definitely use this over b350 or even b450. Overall outstanding cpu from AMD and can't wait for the 2800x to come about.
Its muched appreciated if you found the review to be helpful, to hit the "helpful button" below.
I upgraded from an 1800x a few months back and i was a bit sceptical at first until i saw the numbers, my cpu will run at 4ghz all day long at extremely low voltage compared to my 1800x, for example i easily sit over 4ghz with my voltage below 1.275v, unthinkable on the 1800x. I decide to stick a h100i corsair cooler on it which almost destroyed my idea of airflow through the case (See pic 2) as i had to put the intake fans at the top because the 240mm radiator was too big to fit in the top of the case, only because the ram slots are quite high on the Asrock x470 Gaming K4. The trouble i have is my 1080ti also has its own radiator so my cases airflow really isn't optimal at all, but it still stays cool at all times. Even with this heatwave through europe the cpu never exceeded 70 °c at any time even without amazing airlow and ambient temps well above 40°c, this thing is a beast! If you want to run anything over 3200mhz ram then please take my advice and make sure the ram is samsung B-die. Im not sure why but ryzen really loves samsung B-die, I had corsair 3200mhz hynix ram that would run on my other b350 board with my 1800x or 2700x but not with the new x470 board, the timings are not right, ended up purchasing G-skill Flare X 3200mhz 16gb instead for ultimate capability. In short, dont believe the doubters, this is insane performance out the box with most ryzen 2700x hitting 4ghz straight out the box with under 1.3v, I mean would you really expect 8 cores to go under 30°c even with power saving off, amd cool and quiet and c6 state off? Im more than happy, I havent even activated precision boost 2 yet and look at those specs, i dont need to! I just let it thrive under 1.3v, its glorious!
Pour en revenir sur ses perfs, je passe d'un i5 7500 à ce monstre et c'est le jour et la nuit, en jeu avec la même carte graphique(gtx 1060) j'ai énormément gagné en stabilité et en framerate(sur rust par exemple), ses températures sans OC sont très bonne(32°C en idle et 50°C en jeu) avec un be quiet dark rock pro 4 et vous pouvez l'OC à 4,15Ghz sûr sans toucher au voltage. Concernant la RAM, j'ai tenté 3466Mhz mais le contrôleur mémoire n'a pas apprécié, le mieux pour ma config c'est 3200Mhz pour avoir quelque chose de stable sur le long terme. Bref, que dire de plus si ce n'est que vous en avez pour votre argent et vous ne serez pas obligé de changer votre carte mère avant 2020.
Petit conseil: évitez l'OC du cpu car non seulement la consommation explosera mais en plus pour peu de gain et plus de chauffe, les xfr2 et pb2 s'occupent déjà de boost et avec un bon ventirad vous pouvez avoir 4Ghz sur tous les cœurs sans rien toucher. Si vous voulez en tirez le maximum il faudra plutôt OC du côté de votre RAM entre 3000 et 3400Mhz car l'architecure zen+ en tire un gros avantage de performance.

Ganz am Anfang hatte ich Probleme!
Die Probleme hatten indirekt mit der CPU was zu tun. Ich benutze das Program Logitech ARX im die PC-Werte angezeigt zu bekommen.
Ich nutze eine Logitech G910 mit einem alten Android Tablet, wo die Daten angezeigt werden.
Es werden RAM, CPU und GPU angezeigt. Ich war immer zu frieden mit der APP.
Nur ist das Problem, dass die APP nur 3,7GHZ bei der CPU anzeigt und das immer!
Da dachte ich ok benutzt du halt CPU-Z und der Zeigte auch nur 3,7GHZ an. Da dachte ich die CPU funktioniert nicht richtig, weil es nicht hoch taktet. Es war alles richtig eingestellt. Habe lange probiert mit Bios Einstellungen ect.
Das hat immer bedingt geholfen. Wenn ich die CPU manuell übertaktet habe, wurde die "richtige" Taktfrequenz angezeigt.
Die Tools haben aber immer angezeigt, dass sich die CPU nicht verändert und immer die Frequenz beibehält.
Habe den AMD Support kontaktiert und nach langem hin und her (die konnten daimt erstmal nichts anfangen) kam raus, dass ich einfach AMD RYZEN MASTER nutzen muss. Und siehe da, die CPU arbeitet im AUTOMATISCHEN takten perfekt!
Dann habe ich die BIOS Eintellungen zurückgesetzt und habe der CPU alles überlassen.
Ich nutze den Boxed Lüfter und muss sagen, dass die CPU auch bei last nicht höher als 70Grad kommt. Durchschnitt sind 45-55Grad bei Last!
Den Lüfter kann man auf HIGH oder LOW einstellen, es befindet sich ein Schieberegler an dem Lüfter. Die Lautstärke ist angenehm. Ich habe noch einen sehr guten Alpenföhn Brocken, den ich nicht nutzen muss!
Die Montage war super einfach!
Ich spiele aktuell ARMA und PUBG und habe eine RX 480 8GB von ASUS und komme auf ca. 80-144FPS.
Nach einem UPDATE von CPUZ läuft der jetzt auch richtig :-)
I combined this processor with a AsRock Taichi x370 (Latest 4.70 BIOS) and 16GB's 3000mhz Corsair RAM - with XMP enabled. I am receiving the correct RAM speeds.
The stock cooler is very nice, quiet from my point of view and more than adequate if you wish not to overclock. I thought about getting the 1700x, however if you factor in a decent cooler along with the 1700x, you are more or less paying the same price as the 2700x and this is newer, plus on 12nm technology as well as slightly faster stock and boost speeds.
I am very happy with my upgrade.
Note - to get the most out of Ryzen ensure you use fast DDR4 RAM, with XMP enabled in the BIOS settings.
