AMD Ryzen 7 1700X
The CPU that lit the touchpaper under Intel’s proverbial ass, the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X kicked off AMD’s comeback in style. $100 cheaper than the flagship 1800X, the Ryzen 7 1700X is the perfect blend of value and raw performance. It was an 8-core CPU arriving for a fraction of Intel’s only octa-core at the time, the $1100 Core i7-5960X. For pure multi-threading performance, the 1700X really has proven itself to be a fantastic buy, both for gaming and content creation.
