A member of Reddit community has published the graphs and summary from CPC Hardware review, which is available in the latest printed issue starting from today.
Ryzen 2000: lower latency, but high power consumption
Gaming benchmarks, which include GTA5, GRID Autosport, Battlefield 4, ARMA 3, X3:TC, Witcher 3 and COH2 indicate a 4% gain compared to last-gen flagship Ryzen 7 1800X.
The Ryzen 7 2700X tops the synthetic benchmarks, which are based on HEVC to H264 encoding, Mathematica, PovRay, Blender, 3DSMax and Corona tests. There’s a 14% difference between 2700X and 1800X.
The most disappointing issue with Ryzen 2700X is high power consumption, which goes 13W above 1800X. The new flagship, however, has much smoother frequency scaling in multi-core use.
The review was conducted with an A320 motherboard, which does not support XFR2. Although, according to CPC Hardware, changes from X370 to X470 chipset are cosmetic and should not provide any substantial performance differences.
