just waiting to see what improvments the 400 series boards bring to the tableRemember that pending Ryzen 7 2700X print review we mentioned? As you could see from the cover, the magazine is to feature Ryzen 2200G but also Ryzen 7 2700X (the 12nm Zen+ processor), which should be launching April 19th. Well, the results have indeed been posted.
So as it turns out the CanardPC tweet wasn't some kind of Aprils fools joke, but the real thing. The numbers have been scanned and then posted on Reddit and include gaming benchmarks for GTA5, GRID Autosport, Battlefield 4, ARMA 3, Witcher 3 and COH2 indicate a 4% gain compared to last-gen flagship Ryzen 7 1800X.
The overall latency has improved quite a bit, but so did power efficiency. Unfortunately, the review was performed with an A320 motherboard, CPC Hardware claims the changes from X370 to X470 chipset are trivial (however they did not test one). A320 is not very likely optimized whatsoever for such a high-end processor and we know for sure the new Turbo mechanism will not function properly on A320. Time will tell though, but this review raises concerns. But hey, if the 1080p game performance differential was 10%, we can now shave off another 4%, perhaps with a bit of tweaking a few % more? AMD might be able to close that CPU gaming gap.
