The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8-Core 3.7GHz is a high-end CPU based on the 14nm Zen micro architecture.
It offers 8 physical cores (16 threads), initially clocked at 3.7GHz base clock with an unlocked multiplier for overclocking, and 16MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features are Simultaneous Multithreading, Cool n Quiet, CoolCore Technology, Extended Frequency Range (XFX), Pure Power and Precision Boost.
This CPU is likely to offer exceptional computational performance and will not be the bottleneck in any modern gaming PC. It will be able to play all modern games comfortably on high/ultra graphics performance without being a hindrance to the accompanying GPU.[Please be aware that GD data is constantly refined as more information and reports are made available.]
should I upgrade if I mainly game, but with tons of things open in the background? (chrome, spotify, etc)
Should I upgrade?
I think it's initially clocked at 3.0 ghz not 3.7Ghz, It goes up to 3.7Ghz On turbo boost :D
hmm only 112% more :D
I think I'll get this one.
