A Handy Consumer Guide to the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Computer Processor
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is a powerful eight-core processor designed for high-end computers. This reasonably priced preowned processor is a faster version of the standard Ryzen 7 2700. It was first released on April 19, 2018, and you can find new and used AMD Ryzen 7 2700X computer processes on eBay.Reasons to buy an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
The Ryzen 7 2700X is designed for complex multitasking computer environments by delivering 3.7 GHz of clock speed over eight cores. This is useful if you have multiple demanding programs running at the same time, such as games, video, web browsers, and other background tasks. The Ryzen 7 2700X is also suited to take advantage of highly threaded software. This means a single piece of software is made up of multiple tasks instead of just one. The processor can then efficiently switch between each individual task with less idle time in between. This tends to benefit complex software such as video editing and 3D rendering. When purchasing a used 2700X on eBay, it's important to note that your motherboard will need to be compatible with an AM4 socket to install this CPU in your computer. You will also need to use DDR4 memory exclusively.How do you tell the difference between AMD processors?
The 2700X is part of the Zen+ line of AMD processors. In terms of performance, this places it between the original Zen and the later Zen 2 processors. Within the Zen+ family, the 2700X is more powerful than the entry-level Ryzen 3 2300 and the mainstream Ryzen 5 2600 but not quite as powerful as the ultra-high-end Ryzen Threadripper 2920X, 2950X, etc., which have as many as 32 cores. In other words, the Ryzen 7 2700X offers high performance but at a more affordable price than the most powerful processors.Some unique features of the Ryzen 7 2700X
