AMD Ryzen 2700X Review Leaks on X370 chipset

The question on the lips of most hardware enthusiasts is how much performance does AMD's 2nd Generation Ryzen processors offer, be it in gaming, workstation or other applications.   

Now the first review of AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X has been released by elchapuzainformatica, who have confirmed that the Ryzen 7 2700K can offer clock speeds of up to 4.35GHz at stock, albeit on a single core. 

Sadly this review comes with many reported issues, such as instability in games and strange memory issues, though it is likely that these problems stem from the outlet's use of an X370 motherboard, which may not be using a BIOS/UEFI iteration which fully supports AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation processors.

In their review, elchapuzasinformatico confirmed that AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X will ship with a Wraith Prism cooling solution, which offers RGB functionality and can illuminate a ring on the cooler's surface and the Prism's semi-transparent fan blades. This RGB LED cooling solution can be configured via USB or RGB compatible motherboards.

As we have said above, elchapuzasinformatico encountered stability issues with their CPU, so please take their results with a grain of salt. Every game the website tried to test failed and their memory benchmarks presented some extraordinarily strange results.

What we will show below is the site's Cinebeinch scores for their stock Ryzen 7 2700X on an ASRock X370 motherboard, showcasing performance levels which are higher than our overclocked 1700X and 1800X results, which is a good sign for AMD's 2700X.

What we have here is a bizarre situation, a review which awards that Ryzen 7 2700X a gold award despite the stability issues which elchapuzasinformatico have experienced and their memory problems. A gold award for a product that they cannot even get working correctly, really? 

It is likely that these issues are the result of some kind of BIOS fault, though their CPU-based performance results showcase a huge performance gain for AMD moving into this new generation. Given the oddities that can be seen here, it is definitely worth waiting for official reviews for AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation products, which should release later this month.
