YouTube channel Hardware Numb3rs got early access to AMD's new Ryzen 7 2700X and published a host of benchmark results. Overall, it appears the new chip beats the Ryzen 7 1700 by about 10 percent in gaming benchmarks.
The official launch is set for April 19, so we're getting very close!
Going into more details, Hardware Numb3rs tested Rise of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Last Light, World of Warcraft, Far Cry Primal and Ashes of the Singularity at 1080p. With the exception of Ashes of the Singularity, all other four games performed noticeably better on Ryzen 7 2700X than on Ryzen 7 1700. More or less, we are looking at a 10fps increase.
