*Testing by AMD Performance labs as of March 3, 2017 on the following systems: Socket AM4: Ryzen 7 1700 processor, with NVIDIA GTX 1070 6 GB graphics adapter 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 RAM, Windows 10 RS2operating system, Graphics driver 184.108.40.20633 :: 12/11/2016. Socket 1151: Z270 SLI, Core i7-7700K processor, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics adapter, 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 RAM, Windows 10 RS2operating system, Graphics driver 220.127.116.1133 :: 12/11/2016. Video Encoding: Compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Core i7-7700K achieved 73% the video encoding performance in Handbrake and 87% the performance in Adobe Premiere CC, for an average video encoding performance of 80% relative to the Ryzen 7 1700.
Content Creation: Compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Core i7-7700K achieved 70% the performance in POVRay, 74% the performance in Blender, and 69% the performance in Cinebench, for an average content creation performance of 71% relative to the Ryzen 7 1700. Simultaneous Game Streaming: The Ryzen 7 1700 dropped less than 1% of frames, while the Core i7-7700K dropped 18% of frames. VR Performance: Both the Ryzen 7 1700 and Core i7-7700K dropped less than 1% of frames in the Price of Freedom, Serious Sam, and Raw Data game benchmark tests. Results are estimates only. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. PC manufacturers may vary system configurations yielding different results. RZN-37

I have been a long time Intel user, not because I was a ‘fanboy’ but simply because for a consumer grade processor Intel was by far the best option. My main system has been more of a workstation than a gaming computer. I primarily use my system for heavy multi-core workloads with 3D design and content creation, I also use my system for web and systems development, along with working in mass Excel documents. My previous i7-6700k was no slouch but in these tasks, there has been a noticeable performance gain with my 8 core 1700 overclocked at 3.9GHz. The value AMD brought to the market with Ryzen is phenomenal.
To think that 1.5 years ago I was considering spending a lot more money to get a 6 core i7-6850k makes me really appreciate my willingness to see what the AMD hype was all about. But Ryzen was not all smooth sailing at first, early Bios updates were often unstable and the RAM incompatibility issues I experienced were frustrating, to say the least. My issues were more of an Asus problem and had nothing to do with my AMD processor, but I can now confidentially recommend Ryzen publicly and to friends. Recent Bios updates have helped overall stability in leaps and bounds. You no longer must read your motherboards RAM QVL listing like a religious text, as long as you get DDR4 RAM from a reputable manufacturer you are going to be okay. And as someone who relies on their computer for income stability is very important to me.
Gaming on the 1700 is pretty good paired with my GTX 1080 Ti but I recently uninstalled games from this PC as it is my work computer. The Ryzen 5 2600x is the best gaming CPU in terms of value right now and I game on my i7-6700k system anyways so I won’t comment any further other than the i7 is my better gaming CPU. Until multi-core gaming optimization improves Intel CPU’s will remain at the top of gaming performance due to their better single core performance and the higher frequencies the i7 CPU’s can clock to.
Moving forward the AM4 lineup is worth investing in, I’m sure many of you have seen the leaked information on the upcoming 7nm Zen CPU’s. I would take the leaked information with a grain of salt, but it looks promising and as AMD has promised AM4 support through to 2020 it means we can likely run the new Ryzen 7 3000 series CPU on our current motherboards. Their lies my main reason for buying a Ryzen CPU right now. I think buying the best R7 CPU currently available is not worth it, if you need a workload heavy CPU look at the cheapest option from the R7 lineup, right now that is the 1700x at $292cad. Then in a year’s time look to upgrade to the new R7 3000 CPU’s. It is a fantastic value for the money and the performance gains are why I am excited for what AMD has to offer moving forward. When the new Ryzen CPU’s launch, I will be buying the newest CPU from AMD and moving this 1700 into an ITX system. Moving forward the Intel lineup seems like a poor option simply because of the limited upgrade path and AMD has come such a long way in the past year. Anyone on the fence about a Ryzen CPU can confidently make their AMD purchase knowing they got a lot better value for their money and have a solid upgrade path moving forward. Not to mention these CPU's are incredibly powerful!

My best purchase in the last 12 years. Period.
Stock CPU speed is very adequate for basic computing tasks and power efficiency at stock clock speeds is amazing. When OCing, while I can go higher, I generally stick to 3.7Ghz @ stock voltage or 3.85 GHz with a small voltage boost (1.3V).
Initially, I had a hard time overclocking via BIOS (my mobo uses offsets vs voltages) and I found obtaining stability beyond 3.7GHz a bit of a challenge. I now do my OC'ing with the Ryzen Master application (simply change clock speed and cpu voltage/ no reboot required) while, in BIOS, I have added SOC voltage (1.2V target) and turned off HPET (and I disabled HPET in WIN10 device manager, too, just to be sure).
Power consumption at idle increases significantly if clocked beyond 3.85GHz/1.3V so, while I can obtain an OC of 3.9GHz (1.375V) with the stock air cooler w my mobo (mobo/cpu temps remain very good via custom case/cpu fan curves set in BIOS & monitored via HWiNFO64), I don't bother with 3.9GHz except when I want to run a benchmark. :-) At all of these settings, the system is stable (Prime95 stress tested) and, while I have reached a Cinebench R15 score of 1740, my score at an energy efficient OC of 3.85GHz is 1711: At 3.7GHz it's 1644 and the score at stock clock speed is 1432.
Overclocking makes the system more responsive. Most importantly, as my daily-driver CPU, I find the system never bogs down with multiple programs running and it remains quick processing big files. I find the Ryzen Master application tremendously helpful with my mobo. I also find the RGB cooler very effective using custom fan curves in BIOS. All in all, I'm extremely pleased with the chip.

Respecto a los errores en los procesadores, buscando en Internet "Ryzen segfault" se puede encontrar toda la información al respecto. En mi caso, compré uno hace algo menos de un mes y, al enterarme del bug, lo he devuelto y lo he intentado con una segunda compra, que me llegó ayer. Con esta segunda compra, confirmo que Amazon a día de hoy todavía está vendiendo los procesadores con el error en cuestión. Para identificarlo basta con ver la identificación serigrafiada del procesador:
BATCH: UA 1706PGT (La línea que interesa y que viene con este formato UA [año 2 dígitos][semana 2 dígitos] [3 letras])
Para este ejemplo, el procesador estaría fabricado en la semana 6 del año 2017. Se conoce que todos los procesadores anteriores a la semana 25 están afectados por el bug (Amazon me ha enviado procesadores de las semanas 18 y 19).
Buscando en Internet también se puede ver que AMD reemplaza estos procesadores si gestionas con ellos una devolución en garantía (RMA), que será lo que haga en mi caso, puesto que creo que es un buen procesador.
Tambien decir que hay que seleccionar con cuidado el resto del hardware, especialmente la memoria que se le vaya a instalar. Por ejemplo, con una Corsair Vengeance LED - Kit de Memoria Entusiasta (16 GB, 2 x 8 GB, DDR4, 3200 MHz, C16, XMP 2.0), color negro con azul LED Iluminación , que supuestamente funciona a 3200 MHz, se bloqueaba el ordenador a esa velocidad (en una placa Gigabyte GA-AX370-GAMING-K7 AMD X370 Socket AM4 ATX - Placa base (DDR4-SDRAM, DIMM, 2133,2400,2933,3200,3400,3600 MHz, Dual, 64 GB, AMD) ) y tuve que cambiarlas por unas G Skill F4-3200C14D-16GFX - Tarjeta de memoria de 16 GB, color negro . Con estas últimas, ha sido activar el perfil XMP para que operen a 3200 MHz y funcionan a la perfección.
Y hasta aquí la historia para montar un ordenador con AMD Ryzen (bueno, me falta el paso del cambio en garantía). Un 10 para Amazon porque en este caso sí que he tenido que tirar de su servicio de cambios de producto y devoluciones y ningún problema al respecto.
It has eaten through everything I have thrown at it.
