Designed for improved multi-core performance when compared to the Ryzen 7 1700, the Ryzen 7 1700X 3.4 GHz Eight-Core AM4 Processor from AMD has a base clock speed of 3.4 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 3.8 GHz. Additionally, this processor features eight cores with sixteen threads in an AM4 socket and has 16MB of L3 cache memory. Having eight cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the sixteen threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor has a TDP of 95W and supports Extended Frequency Range (XFR), dual-channel DDR4 memory, AVX 2.0 extensions, 14nm semiconductor technology, AMD SenseMI technology, FMA3, and AMD Virtualization.
Graphically, the Ryzen 7 1700X 3.4 GHz Eight-Core AM4 Processor does not contain any integrated graphics, meaning that users will need to purchase a dedicated graphics card of their choice. It is also unlocked, meaning it can be overclocked past its maximum turbo frequency. However, this is not recommended, as it will cause the processor to run much hotter.
