AMD Ryzen 7 CPU Series Review: 1800X, 1700X and 1700

Introduction We’ve finally made it to this historic day here at Pureoverclock! It doesn’t matter whether we’re AMD fanboys or not, we’ve all been waiting for Ryzen to show up because even if we don’t plan to buy a chip any time soon, the CPU market has gone way too long without competition. Nearly four years ago, AMD released their last major high end release in the FX-9590. Even then, this was nothing more than a factory overclock of the 8350 that released in 2012. Shortly after, we started hearing that team Red was going to be dropping out of the high-end CPU race, while considering focusing their resources on APUs, consoles and mobile. I remember this time vividly and felt a sense of dread thinking about what would happen to the enthusiasts market if we only had one option. Thankfully, Lisa Su became CEO of AMD in 2014. It was during this time that I saw liquid cooling bundles added to the 9000 series chips, better designs on the array of included stock coolers, optimized releases of the 8000 series chips that included better clockspeeds at the same pricing, and the best news of all, the announcement of a new CPU architecture being designed named “Zen.” Everything Su has done for the company has built my hype for this moment and this review is going to determine whether she reaches “hero” status in my book or not. So without further ado, let’s get ready to enter into one of the greatest moments in my reviewing...



AMD Ryzen 7 Game Stream and Capture Review

I know, this isn’t the full Ryzen 7 review yet, but I couldn’t wait to post this. Also, I needed to make sure this video was uploaded at 60 FPS since all of my other review videos upload at 30. This could be the biggest win AMD has with this release and that’s saying a ton since Ryzen already has some other big wins. The full review is coming very soon with all of the testing phases having been completed, but there’s still some writing, shooting and editing that needs to be finished. Check out the video below to see how AMD lived up to their claims that Ryzen 7 would be an excellent CPU for streamers and we’ll be back with even more review details soon!



Because Ryzen is Coming Sounds Better than Winter is Coming!

By Jove, we have an official announcement from AMD about Ryzen. It looks like our first CPUs will be the Ryzen 7 series, which are 8 core 16 thread beasts that range from a really good 95W TDP, to a massively astounding 65W TDP. You might want to check out those release prices in the press statement below since seeing is believing. It looks like AMD was able to get a 4.0 GHz boost on the 1800X which, based on preliminary performance leaks, is very impressive. Keep an eye out on PureOC since we plan to have many more Ryzen details in the future!
