The R7 2700 is the second highest specifications CPU in the second generation Ryzen CPU launch. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that it performs pretty darn well in these benchmarks. Scoring 19133 in 3DMark was a bit average, but it was on-par with the older 1700X as expected. Scoring 4881 in PCMark 10 is a good strong position too, putting it on par with other Ryzen 7 CPUs, although that benchmark does seem to favour Intel and fewer cores quite strongly. Unigine was a real standout though, scoring 5591, our second highest score to date, with only the Ryzen 2600X scoring higher.
It’s when we get down the big number crunching benchmarks that Ryzen shines. The WPrime time was nicely ahead of the i7-8700K at just 4.055 seconds for 32M and 109.84 seconds for 1024M. Then again, in Cinebench, it scored 162/1567 compared to the 202 and 1418 of the 8700K. Yes, Intel has that single core performance lead, but AMD can brute-force a lead in overall performance with more cores. Intel kept the lead in Handbrake against the more affordable R7 2700, although the R7 2700X did pull ahead of Intel also.
