    Phoronix: Running The Ryzen 7 1700 At 4.0GHz On Linux

    Many Phoronix readers appear rather intrigued by the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 on Linux as it offers good multi-threaded performance with eight cores / 16 threads and retails for just $329 USD. Making the Ryzen 7 1700 even more appealing to enthusiasts is that it overclocks well. For those curious, here are benchmarks of the Ryzen 7 1700 on Ubuntu Linux running at 4.0GHz.

        Until somebody figures out why some of the gaming performance is *much* worse than on windows with some titles and vulkan (that confuses me), I will be watching and waiting. Still leaning towards buying a Ryzen system as it hits the ball out of the park on everything other than gaming right now.

            I don't quite understand it either but I keep seeing references stating that the performance in 1080 gaming should markedly improve within the next few months because of microcode tweaks and game developers taking advantage of Ryzen's uniqueness. I guess people will just have to wait a few months and check any new benchmarks at the time to see if it's true if gaming performance is important to them.

            For myself personally Ryzen looks extremely appealing based on the results with video encoding and 3d rendering. That 1800x matches the $1000 6900k at those tasks which is amazing. Hobbyist multimedia users on a budget that place gaming as a second priority are swooning over the new product.

                Check Michael's 4.11 + Ryzen article - looks like there was a big jump in Vulkan performance just from changing kernels. Not sure if that is "fixing a Ryzen issue" or just "making stuff go faster" though...

                  The RADV improvements in Linux 4.11 aren't Ryzen-specific but appear TTM related.

                    I wonder what's the average OC for the 1700. I was thinking of grabbing a 1800x, but if it can only be OC'd to 4GHz on all cores, then I'd rather risk getting at least 3.7-3.8GHz on the 1700.
