About this deal
Hachman, Mark (September 20, 2022). "AMD Ryzen 7020 'Mendocino' CPUs want low-cost laptops to last all day long". PCWorld . Retrieved April 24, 2023. AMD announced a new series of processors on December 13, 2016, named "Ryzen", and delivered them in Q1 2017,  the first of several generations. The 1000 series featured up to eight cores and 16 threads, with a +52% instructions per cycle (IPC) increase over their prior CPU products.

It's been quite a while since we've seen more than incremental processor-performance gains, generation over generation, in the arena for enthusiast processors. And compared to AMD's near-geriatric FX processors, the Ryzen 7 chips are an impressively large leap. But to be fair, that jump, in part, seems so impressive only because the FX architecture has been dragging down the chip maker for years. Hollister, Sean (August 28, 2021). "Microsoft is threatening to withhold Windows 11 updates if your CPU is old". The Verge. Archived from the original on September 22, 2021 . Retrieved September 22, 2021.In January 2018, AMD announced the first two Ryzen desktop APUs with integrated Radeon Vega graphics under the Raven Ridge codename. These were based on first generation Zen architecture. The Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G were released in February.  Overview of desktop Ryzen 2000 series models

Like nearly all modern high performance microprocessors, Ryzen was susceptible to the "Spectre" vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities can be mitigated without hardware changes via microcode updates and operating system workarounds, but the mitigations incur a performance penalty.  AMD Ryzen and Epyc suffer up to 20% penalty from the mitigations,  depending on workload, comparing favorably with a penalty of in some benchmarks up to 30% for Intel Core and Xeon processors,   in part as a result of the AMD processors not requiring mitigation against the related Meltdown vulnerability. We don't ordinarily run graphics tests when testing processors without integrated graphics. That's mostly because graphics performance typically has much (much) more to do with what graphics card you have installed than what processor you're using—especially when you're using a high-end processor like the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X or Intel's competing Core i7-6900K.
