Quick Take: Both of these are a T-boosting supplements made by GNC. Looking at these two, I found myself asking “why’d they make two formulas for testosterone?” And I believe, if you’re at a GNC store looking at the test boosters and you found yourself looking at these two, you’d ask yourself the same question too. The answer is here, my friends. One is great for testosterone but stumbles at the muscle building department while the other looks weak as a T-booster but does wonders to performance (gym and sex). To find out which is which, well, you’re going to have to keep reading this review.

Amp Test 1700 vs. Beyond Raw Re-Test: My Analysis
Both Amp Test 1700 and Beyond Raw Re-Test are products of GNC and made for boosting testosterone, enhancing performance, and promoting masculine health. They look to be targeting similar demographics but one does another thing better than the other.
AMP TEST 1700 DOES A PRETTY SWEET JOB ON T-BOOSTING, MANLY BENEFITS AND MUSCLE RECOVERY
The Test 1700 Activator aims at boosting testosterone and does so with decent doses of KSM-66® & Testofen® which are branded forms of Ashwagandha and Fenugreek respectively. Ashwagandha in particular, is like putting your testosterone on turbo while fenugreek has science on its back.
Now, if Ashwagandha and Fenugreek boosts your testosterone, then Tribulus is here to make sure you feel the effects of those T-boosts especially at a standard of 40% saponins. All in all, these 3 ingredients and their awesome forms and decent dosages have the capacity to up the testosterone, sex drive, physical performance. You can throw in a little bit of muscle growth and recovery there too.
BEYOND RAW RE-TEST PROVIDES MINIMAL TESTOSTERONE BOOSTS THAT TAKE A BACK SEAT TO PERFORMANCE AND ANABOLIC BENEFITS
This supplement’s Hardcore Test Amplifier, which is supposedly this formula’s testosterone boosting matrix, doesn’t really look that hardcore at all when it comes to T-boosting. With Testofen® and Tribulus Terrestris at 40% saponins looking like the main ingredients because of their dosages, this doesn’t really look like it gives promising test boosts. The ingredients, however, look like they can be good for bodybuilding, strength, recovery, and even sex.
Conclusion: Which is Better?
And now we’ve come to this. Which is better? That depends. What are you looking for? What’s your purpose?
As a whole, they do have somewhat similar ingredients in that they prioritize Tribulus and Fenugreek, have the banned substance Antler Horn, and have questionable anti-estrogen additions in IC3 and DIM so it’s a pretty difficult choice regardless.
If it was me in your place though, I’m an all-out testosterone junky looking to buy T-boosters that actually give me more test.
In this case, I give the medal to Amp Test 1700. I’m not saying Beyond Raw Re-Test is bad though. It’s a pretty good bodybuilding supplement too. It just doesn’t look like it gives as much testosterone boosts as Amp Test 1700. That being said, if you’re not looking for a whole lot of T-boosts anyway and just want to build muscle after muscle, Beyond Raw Re-Test is better for you.
