If you’ve come across our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, you might have noticed that the first place is occupied by an AMD option part of the 2nd generation Ryzen processors – Ryzen 7 2700. It is followed by the high-end desktop-grade AMD Ryzen 7 1700 which is our silver medalist, so we thought you would be interested in the epic battle between these two mighty processors.
Visit our Top Laptop CPU Ranking to check these two and many more CPUs.
For starters, AMD Ryzen 7 2700 is based on AMD’s new 12 nm Zen+ architecture with a total of 4 cores 8 cores and can execute up to 16 threads simultaneously thanks to the Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT). In addition, it runs at a base frequency of 3.2 GHz that can be boosted up to 4.1 GHz. Other specs include 16MB of L3 Cache, support for up to a dual-channel DDR4 memory controller, as well as TDP rated at 65 W.
Moving on to AMD Ryzen 7 1700, the chip is based on AMD’s new Zen architecture utilizing the 14nm node. In addition, it adopts the 8/16 core/thread count and is clocked at 3.00 GHz, while its Turbo Boost frequency is 3.70 GHz. The specs sheet is complemented by 16MB last level cache, as well as a dual-channel memory controller that supports DDR4, as well as a TDP rated at 65 W.
Results are from the Cinebench 15 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)
For the purposes of this juxtaposition, we have decided to compare the performance of the two chips found in Acer Predator Helios 500 and ASUS ROG GL702ZC respectively. Looking at the charts above, AMD Ryzen 7 2700 shows around 9% better results when it comes to 3D rendering (tested with Cinebench 15). On top of that, it is also 18% faster in the Adobe Photoshop test compared to Ryzen 7 1700.
In conclusion, it seems that AMD Ryzen 7 2700 definitely deserves the first place in our Top Laptop CPU Ranking. Quite expectedly, it outperformed our silver medalist – Ryzen 7 1700, in all 2/2 benchmarks, therefore we shall also announce it as the winner in this battle of titans.
