Jarred had a lot of good thinks to say about the Ryzen 7 2700X in his 87% review (opens in new tab) back in April. While he said it's a little slower than the i5 and i7 when it comes to games, he praised its higher clockspeeds than previous Ryzen CPUs, as well as its excellent multi-threaded performance. "I give more weight to gaming performance, which is why the Ryzen 7 2700X rates a bit lower than the i7-8700K, but both CPUs are excellent choices. And having choice is part of what makes PC gaming such a great hobby." He's not wrong.
