What hap­pens when you drop AMD’s lat­est and fastest CPU into a PC? Some­thing that per­forms just a few per­cent­age points be­hind In­tel’s best in games, but dom­i­nates In­tel as soon as any­thing pro­duc­tiv­ity re­lated or heav­ily mul­ti­threaded comes along. Mak­ing the “Gam­ing Workstation” name for this sys­tem very apt in­deed.

The 16GB of RAM is listed as 2400MHz, which given Ryzen 2’s new sup­port for 2933MHz is a dis­ap­point­ment, es­pe­cially when Ryzen ab­so­lutely laps up all the mem­ory speed you can feed it.

Apart from that mi­nor flaw, the rest of the sys­tem is a pretty good of­fer­ing. The GTX 1070 Ti is a nice sweet spot unit that is so fast it is es­sen­tially a GTX 1080!
