    Ryzen 7 1700X Deal of the Day

    With the second-gen AMD Ryzen processors rolling out, we could expect to see some price cuts in order to move old inventory. This is one hell of a deal of the day! The 1700X (we reviewed it here) is now for sale at Amazon for $185 after $30 MIR. That is only $23 a core, or $11.50 a thread...

    PCPer Says the AMD Ryzen 1700 is the OC Shiznit

    OK, maybe "Rowdy" Ryan Shrout did not say "shiznit" in his "Overclocking the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 - The Real Winner?" review, but I know he thought it. What is very fishy though is that PCPer came up with same exact conclusions that HardOCP did, mere hours after we published our 1700 vs 1700X...

    AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocking - Best Ryzen Processor?

    "Nuclear" Nathan Kirsch has a handle on what a lot of us are wondering. Is the AMD Ryzen model 1700 (No X) processor up to the chops of the 1700X and 1800X when it comes to overclocking? Does it clock as high as 4GHz or better? And if it does, how do the benchmark metrics stand up to its more...

    Ryzen 1700X Just as Good as 1800X

    Now that I am back in town and the Ryzen embargo has expired, we can talk a bit more openly about the different Ryzen models; the 1700X and 1800X. I was told by sources inside AMD to not expect to find any discernible differences between the 1700X and 1800X processors if you were going to...
