AMD Ryzen 7 1700 vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700U

AMD Ryzen 7 1700

► remove AMD 1700

The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 is a fast desktop processor with 8 cores and SMT (16 threads) that was introduced in early 2017. It is based on the new Zen architecture and it is the slowest model at the time of announcement. With 65 Watt it is also less power hungry than the Ryzen 1700X.

The CPU cores clock from 3 base speed up to 3.75 GHz (XFR). The 2-core Turbo is specified at 3.7 GHz and using all 8 cores, the CPU can reach up to 3.2 GHz. The clock rate and TDP rating is the only difference to the faster Ryzen 7 models.

The performance in applications that can make use of all 8 cores is very competitive to high end Intel CPUs at a very good price point. However, non optimized apps like many games can't make full use of the new architecture.

A detailed look at the new Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700 can be found in our review.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700U

► remove AMD 2700U

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is a mobile SoC that was announced in October 2017. It combines four Zen cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.2 - 3.8 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics card with 10 CUs (640 Shaders) clocked at up to 1300 MHz. The TDP can be configured by the laptop manufacturer between 12 to 25 Watt (15 Watt nominal) and therefore the APU is also suited for thin and light laptops. The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. More information on Raven Ridge can be found in our launch article.

The performance of the Zen CPU cores should be better than a high end Kaby-Lake-Refresh Quad-Core CPU (e.g. the Core i7-8650U) according to AMD. Therefore, the Ryzen 7 2700U is suited for all applications.
