AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor Review

This past year has been a real exciting one for processors. Before AMD launched their original Ryzen processors they were basically written off and dominated in the CPU world by Intel. AMD changed all of that with Ryzen, which proved to be one of the most exciting product launches in AMD history. It gave real competition to Intel in mainstream desktop space, so much so that Intel rushed out their "Coffee Lake" chips which came with increased core counts. At that time Intel remained on top with their 6-core, 12-thread Core i7-8700K, but today we are still going to see if that remains true. We have the new flagship AMD Ryzen 7 2700X which is a 8-core, 16-thread part which retails for only $329. Will this be the new king in the mainstream desktop platform? Read on as we find out!
