All three Ryzen 7 models are manufactured on a 14nm process and have eight cores and supports 16 threads. The top of the line Ryzen 7 1800X is claimed to be the fastest eight-core chip available in the market right now. It has a base clock speed of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4GHz. 

AMD touted that its high-performace 1800X chip can outperform "a similarly configured 8-core, 16-thread Intel Core i7-6900K in Cinebench R15 multi-threaded and Handbrake-based video transcoding, as well as showing comparable 4K gaming performance."

The Ryzen 7 1700X has base clock speed of 3.4GHz and boost speed of 3.8GHz, while the Ryzen 7 1700 offer clock speed of 3GHz, and boost speeds of 3.7GHz. The 1800X and 1700X have 95W TDP ratings while the 1700 have 65W.  

The Ryzen 7 1800X is priced at Rs. 37,999 ($499 in the U.S) compared to the $1050 price tag of Intel's Core i7 6900K. The Ryzen 7 1700x and Ryzen 7 1700 are priced at Rs. 24,999 ($399 in the U.S) and Rs. 24,499 ($319 on the U.S), roughly $25 less expensive than Core i7-6800K and Core i7-770K, which they will compete against.
