AMD Ryzen 7 2700 vs 2700X – CPU Benchmark Comparison

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700 and 2700X are both 8 core CPUs with different clock speeds, but what is the difference in performance between them in gaming and other tasks? To test this I’ve run some game benchmarks at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K resolutions as well as other applications to give you an idea of the differences between them both and help you decide which to buy.

Great video, i am in US and was contemplating purchasing one of these two was all decided like you mentioned the 30 buck dif just get the X model however i checked my pc part picker and now the 2700 has dropped so is 100$ below x variant. this is what brought me to your video so thx for the data points…. lol but i don’t quite know what to pick still and what motherboard to pair … so indecisive due to budget constraints … sigh.. But again awesome video.

Jesus McBeth says:

R the differences in 4k smaller %wise compared to differences in other reses?

*much smaller

Concept Tec says:

good job!!
in your opinion and tests, is it better a Helios 300 i7 7770 gtx1060 or G7 i7 8850u gtx 1060?

Evan Johannson says:

How much cayshe? ;p

Mr_Beezlebub says:

8 cores and 16 threads for less than 6 cores and 12 threads from Intel is an amazing deal

Khaled Didi says:

Hello jarred can u plz do a review of the asus gl703 vm scar edition

Dark says:

Just snagged a 2700x for $220 on an amazon flash sale

What is the difference between ddr3 and gddr5 in graphics?By how much is gddr5 better than ddr3?

Luis270893 says:

Should i wait or buy the rtx 2080? I usually play games on 1080p but i need some of those tensor core for futureproofing the new architecture that it is coming on games.

TabalugaDragon says:

wow, the overclocked 2700 almost catches up to 2700x,which is amazing. Also shows how much frequency is important in games for these processors. 1.4 v is quite high voltage though

Carlos Motta says:

Very good job, my friend!
2700X for americans, unless those 30 bucks are the difference between having lunch or starve.
Hey, these AMD stock coolers are pretty good, right? Cause Intel’s are more like frying pans with a light blow from an asthmatic old man.
Have a good one, mate.

Martin darlington says:

Thanks, just about to but a 2700x so quite helpful, would have liked it if you could have tested the coolers as interested to know how well they work, ie it’s the 2700x cooler any good, many thanks.

he he says:

thank , your test is much mroe approach our spec, other review all use ddr4 3200o or ddr4 4000, we dont have that much money to buy that ram.

SalmonPunk says:

quality as always, good job!

Thimo says:

In my country there is a 60 dollar difference between the 2700 and the 2700x. I would love the better performance but that TDP is too high for my liking. I’ll think about it for a few days, thank you for these videos. They truly help us, the consumers.

Pierré Grobbelaar says:

Its about 700 bucks difference here which makes the 2700x a better price to performance.

Michael Kazda says:

What memory did you use for the benchmark? Speed, cl?

NoLuv4Hoz says:

Outstanding job, Sir! You sure know how to do a bench-marking video. Exactly the information I needed to know, thanks. U.S. price difference is $249 vs $305 for 2700 vs 2700X right now, so the 2700 is looking really good. Thinking about selling my unopened 1700X and grabbing a 2700 instead.

NaN 001 says:

80° without gaming is ok? i hav 7 2700

Geordie Tech Channel says:

Caesh ….. Cash you mean lol

christopher james says:

I have an two R5 1600’s. One with a Crosshair VI Hero and the other with an MSI Gaming Titanium. I have the itch to upgrade. Probably a couple 2700X. Overclocking and tweaking is getting tiresome.

mahfooj khan says:

Jarrod please review Asus Scar 2 with 1060gtx graphic card, its been too long and its available everwhere now, i hope that you will get it soon and will give complete review including thermal throtteling as most of the Asus laptops suffers from that

Le Rana says:

Welp temperature and power consumption?

viru100 Singh says:

Jarrod its so refreshing to see you doing tech reviews of gaming products other than gaming laptops.
Just an honest and simple review. NICE!!

Kill Bill VoL. 21 says:

Nice video but forgot to mention watt consumption 😉

Laymans Tech says:

Alaskan guy here
Due to financial messes I’m stuck with an 8350fx rig…….built it December 2016… does what I want it to and then some

brad morris says:

good job. the 4.25Ghz OC is pretty good for the 2700X. The precision boost overdrive is usually a better option for the 2700X, than an all core Overclock which, as you found, limits single core performance. High level PBO setting in the Bios, +50mv offset voltage for the CPU and a BCLK boost to 103.4Mhz (if you can run it stable) will give you about 4.5Ghz single core and 4.3Ghz all core. You may need something better than the stock cooler though.

Cam'Ron Grant says:

Great Job Jarrod! I would choose the 2700X for my system because in the US the price difference is negligible because the Wraith Prism and Higher clock speed make up for the price difference.

Drake says:

I Have The 2700x !

Paul Allen says:

Living in Texas, in the US,I would go with the 2700X for the 30 dollar price difference. Don’t understand why it is so much more in Australia?

Pedro Flores says:

Only reason I’m getting the r7 2700 for the tdp and also because I’m building a sff build
