Review of AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X with Gigabyte X470 AORUS Gaming 7 WIFI motherboard

Futuremark FireStrike benchmark

Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark for modern gaming PCs. Its ambitious real-time graphics are rendered with detail and complexity far beyond other DirectX 11 benchmarks and games.

Fire Strike includes two graphics tests, a physics test and a combined test that stresses the CPU and GPU.

As we can see, different processors will give us different result.

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X scored 12046 which is higher than Intel Core i7-8770K at 11879. Ironically, when overclocked to 4.15 GHz, we get a lower score. The only suspect could be the throttling down due to high temperatures of 80+ degree Celsius.

Nevertheless, the both AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and AMD Ryzen 5 2600X both beats the Intel Core i7-8770K when running at default. Again, overclocking both Ryzen might have throttled down the processor speed. Time to consider getting water cooling.

The 1st generation AMD Ryzen 1800X is lower at 11749. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has a lead of 1.4% against the Intel Core i7-8770K.
