AMD Ryzen 7 1700
The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 has 8 cores and 16 threads. Its base clock is at 3.0 GHz, its turbo clock goes up to 3.7 GHz. Its multiplier is unlocked, making it possible to overclock the processor easily.
Based on 84 benchmarks we rate its gaming performance level at 5.83/10. Compared to the alternatives it is a rather weak processor for games.
For regular application workloads, based on 30 benchmarks we rate its performance level at 2.44/10. It is a rather weak processor for application workloads.

There’s no getting around that AMD has a strong workstation core design on their hands. This bodes well for users who need compute at a lower cost, especially when you can pick up an eight-core Ryzen 7 at half the cost of the competition.
The 1700 performs well in heavily threaded workloads, but lags behind Intel's quad cores in most gaming scenarios.
Overall, I feel that the 1700X and 1700 are excellent processors for their price; basically 1800Xs that need a bit of overclocking. The 1700X and 1700 are the 8-core CPUs for the masses.
