So today I thought I would test all my Ryzen Samples, one (The R7-1700) being a Retail sample and the other two (R7-1700x & 1800X) being quality samples sent in for review.
After going ham and overclocking them all on the Asrock Taichi X370 board, with the EK Predator 240 I found that the R7-1700 honestly came out on top (especially for the money), with it scoring a 4GHz overclock, and also doing it at a lower voltage than the 1800X, which managed to score 25 mhz higher, though did it at a higher voltage. I did manage to get the 1800X to run a cinebench test once at 4.075GHz @ 1.5v, though it just crashed out the second time. So not really worth the extra voltage or time.
You also get a cooler included with the R7-1700, though it doesn’t have XFR tech like the 1700X and 1800X do, and it only boosts out of the box to 3.3ghz, vs 3.5 on the 1700x vs 3.7ghz on the 1800x. The 1700X and 1800X will boost on single core loads much higher due to the XFR tech (though I found just manually overclocking on all 8 cores was the best option for sure.
