AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Processor Review

I have been covering the tech scene for a long time, over 10 years now. I cannot remember a time where there was so much hype for a product like we saw for AMD's Ryzen CPUs. Let's face it, for quite a while now AMD was not able to compete with Intel when it came to desktop processors. This inability to compete, especially in the enthusiast market, prompted AMD to completely redesign a new processor. This is not something that could just happen overnight, Ryzen has actually been in development for 4 years. AMD had a goal in mind, which was to bring AMD back into the minds of enthusiasts and system builders. I would say for the past 5+ years if you asked my advice on building a new PC I would have suggested an Intel processor. Can Ryzen change my opinion on that? Well today we get our first look at Ryzen, starting with the Ryzen 7 1700 processor. This is the 8-core, 16-thread processor which runs at 3.0 GHz and boosts up to 3.7 GHz with a TDP of only 65W. You get all of this for a very nice price of $329.99. Let's get this chip in a system and see what it can do!
