Looks like the BIOS optimizations are starting to roll out.... Very exciting news. My 1800X is still box fresh... looking forward to starting my build soon.

This is one of the reasons I haven't started my build yet. Just waiting to see what happens with motherboards, RAM issues and other teething problems before jumping in. I only bought the CPU because i got swept up in all the hype biggrin.gif

Still exciting though.

It's been mentioned by multiple reviewers lately, but rise of tomb raider is not a reliable benchmark (the results vary a lot from run to run), so I wouldn't read too much into the tomb raider results.

btw.. I stopped watching the video when I saw they were benching this game.

There is no actual comparison to intel. Only RoTR testing old vs new. Nothing else. And a few words on how absolutely amazing the ryzen is (he stopped just short of licking AMD's rear).

The train can go off the rails and thundering down a 1000 meter drop and will still be "its moving forward, no problems at all".

Was it necessary for that video to be 12 minutes? Can someone just post the results please?

Ill have to agree with what most people are saying, one game is not actually an increase in performance.

I own the game and have yet to give it a try, but i can tell you for SURE my performance gain won't be from a BIOS update but rather from the small OC and big ram speed increase i gave my setup.

Here is the 2 ive ran so far and compared to my 4690k (which you can see is still ahead). I even tried my build with high performance power option and balanced. In Grid Autosport (which is old and hasn't even gotten a ryzen patchc and probably won't) we see a nice increase from slight OC (35x to 38x) and ram from 2133 to 2933 (still short of 3200)

i5 4690k/r7 1700x/r7 1700x 3.8ghz, 2933mhz(hp)/balanced

Grid Autosport
Min 86.98 / 69.90 / 82.35 / 82.733
Avg 111.84 / 95.30 / 107.15 / 107.68
Max 156.24 / 132.85 / 139.34 / 142.75

Far Cry Primal is a different story. Here you can see how a ram increase only increased the min from 55 to 61 (good little bump though) but avg only went up by 2 with 2933 ram compared to 2133 and only 1 more above stock 1700x configuration.

[email protected]/1700x/[email protected]/2933 (hp)/balanced

Min 64.00 / 52.00 / 55.00 / 61.00 / 60.00
Avg 73.00 / 69.00 / 70.00 / 72.00 / 71.00
Max 82.00 / 80.00 / 80.00 / 81.00 / 80.00

I have yet to download RTTR again (my hdd died when my first AM4 board died as well, i think just coincidence) so these tests are done on a new HDD as well.

Well my 3570k is still going at it quite strong after 5 years, but I might go for Rysen next iteration witch will be a much more mature CPU, AMD finally brought some decent competition against Intel, but still needs some maturing to do.

Well now we've seen

- What happens when you use 3200MHz+ memory.
- What happens when you optimize for RyZen (Ashes of the Singularity for example)
- What happens with a mere BIOS update

Every single time, that 1700 becomes a superior buy over the 7700K (overall). I mean when paired with 3600MHz memory, we've seen a 1700 at 3.97GHz beat or remain very competitive with a 7700K at 5GHz in a multitude of gaming scenarios.

Far too much potential, far too easy to tweak it seems.

Not sure why people are still calling all of this hype. These are hard numbers we're seeing... not hype (well actually I know why but lets not go there).
