So I was looking thru some Stuff on CPU -Z and noticed something Weird. I had looked at my single core performance and noticed it was Higher that the I7 7700k. I know that CPU-z Is used for overclocking benchmarks but most people are saying that the I7 7700k's Single core performance is what makes it a better gaming CPU. plus the Stock speed of anI7- 7700k is 4.2GHz so how can my 1700 oc'ed to 4.1 beat it in Single thread performance. Not really sure what this would mean Here is the link to the validation score AMD Ryzen 7 1700 @ 4091.71 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR   and for comparison this is the 4.0 clock Still beating it AMD Ryzen 7 1700 @ 3991.91 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR Just really confused on the benchmarks, Am I missing something or did i just get really lucky in the silicon lottery.
