The only real difference is that the 2700x is quicker out of the box, but they are both unlocked meaning you can overlook them!! I’d reccommend waiting a month when ye Ryzen 3000 series released, these are 8 core monsters with higher clock speeds then the current generation on all cores!Whats the difference between ryzen 7 2700 to 7 2700x ?
No. They'll basically overclock exactly the same. They're literally the same silicon with different out of the box settings. You can get a slight boost in game performance with the 2700x by using PBO and negative offset voltage but it's not "much faster". There doesn't even seem to be a binning advantage to the 2700x. You'll always be better off with the 2700 and an aftermarket cooler over spending the extra money on the 2700x. If you put in the work to set it up properly that is.But you can also overclock the 2700x, making it much faster than the 2700.
This isn't exactly the whole story though. Their single-core boost clocks are not too far apart, but there's a significantly larger difference between their multi-core boost clocks. See this chart near the bottom of the first page of Tom's Hardware's 2600 review for a better idea of how the various Ryzen processors boost clocks compare...The Ryzen 7 2700x turbos to 4.3ghz
