As we know, AMD company has already started sending samples of retail processors Ryzen, so that the network began to appear new information about the CPU data capabilities. In particular, the portal Overclockers UK employee alias Gibbo told about their successes in breaking up Ryzen 7 1700. It is reported that he was able without any problem to disperse the “stone” to 4.05 GHz on all eight cores using a motherboard ASUS Crosshair VI Hero.
According Gibbo, to achieve stable operation at this frequency can only be high-end motherboards, while medium-budget solutions are capable of providing stable operation Ryzen Ryzen 7 1700 at frequencies around 3.8 GHz. The main reason for this is the low power CPU subsystem. According to the British overclocker, the best motherboards for overclocking processors Ryzen are mentioned ASUS Crosshair VI Hero and ASRock Taichi.
In addition, another employee of OC UK and a leading YouTube-channel DinoPC in one of his videos (which was almost immediately deleted) shared the test results Ryzen Ryzen 7 1700 in Grand Theft Auto V. The company CPU «red» in the figure amounted to chart Intel Core processor i7-7700K, working on sink rate and overclocked to 5GHz. Due to the higher operating frequencies “stone» Intel was able to provide great indicators of maximum and minimum frame rate. Nevertheless, Ryzen Ryzen 7 1700 managed to keep the average frame rate at quite acceptable level, behind the Core i7-7700K only a few fps.
Also, a British enthusiast checked Ryzen Ryzen 7 1700 in the benchmark Cinebench 11.5, where it is in smithereens breaks chips Core i7-6700K and Core i7-7700K using all cores, but loses them in single-threaded mode.
