So at the Ryzen launch I took a look at the 1800X and the 1700X and compared them to the Intel i7-6900K and the i7-7700K and I followed that up with the Ryzen R7 1700. Well around that time Intel sent over the i7-7700K, the one I did my previous testing on was a loaner. So rather than cover everything everyone has already seen with the 7700K I wanted to change things up. I posted up on our Facebook asking people what they would like to see compared between the 7700K and the R7 1700 and I ended up with a list of games and someone also mentioned streaming performance. I decided to combine that list with all of the games we already test our video cards with and I put together a big list of games to check out. After a LOT of testing, I’m ready to finally sit down and check out the results. Are you guys ready? I know I am!

Test Rigs

When putting together both test configurations I didn’t have to stray from our standard test setups because they both already match. Both CPUs were running on similar Asus boards and while the memory kits aren’t the same they were both running at the same clock speeds. Beyond that, each CPU was set to stock speeds. The only thing I changed from my standard testbench was the switch to the GTX 1080 Ti to have the fastest single GPU possible. The overall setups are both very close to what people would be looking at when shopping for these CPUs, especially if gaming at higher resolutions.
