it amazes me how much the tables has turned... a few years back AMD chips could easily get in this club while Intel chips had great difficulties... now 7700K's have no problems getting in and the new Ryzen chips just plain can't... and Intel still has the best IPC but perf for $ AMD still rules for the most part...

Yeah it is quite amazing and personally its good to see AMD finally getting somewhere, though for my purposes clock speed still trumps cores so AMD is not really on my radar at present.

Unless you are into content creation that uses more than 8 threads there is no real need to go with anything but the 7700k (or something similar) right now... it's just the best all around for a good price if all you need is 8 threads... but... for media creation uses even the Ryzen 5 1600x beats it out in many situations for much less money... just the single thread and gaming performance isn't there for it.... don't get me wrong it will do fine at gaming for most people, but it's no 7700k... for single threaded only purposes just about any current intel beats any current AMD really.

Absolutely correct if I were a content creator or used rendering programs etc sure I would most likely move over to thread ripper as opposed to X299, simply because Im not a big fan of Intel or Apple for that matter, mainly because I dont agree with their business practices. That said considering I use my machine for general purpose use and some light gaming I cant see any need to upgrade in the foreseeable future.

I did too good of a job "tuning" this pc in and now I'm having a hard time justifying the upgrade... I use mine for work and play... usually multitasking like crazy... that's why I chose AMD way back when 2500k was king of gaming.. but being the overclocking freak I am.. I overclocked the cores, cpu/nb, ram and HT ... turns out that puts this thing close to 4770K performance when all 8 threads are used and pretty good single core performance but still not up to intel... If I was only gaming, I would have went 2500k back then.. and now I'm looking at upgrading to the Ryzen 7 1700 for the same reasons... I need multi-tasking beast more than gaming performance... and since I game at 4k I''m pretty much gpu limited anyway... most people go 4k for gaming... I went with a 49" 4k monitor so I could have 4 windows open at the size of a normal 24" 1080p monitor... I did have 3 monitors... but with this I have the equivalent of 4 monitors with no bezel thumb.gif


If you haven't already, check out my how to get good fps out of fx thread... I need to add it to my signature... I've done a lot of research into it and it seems that more than core clocks than the cpu/nb (uncore) and memory matters with FX.. this may be applicable to Intel chips as well but I don't have any to test on though.

Apparently now that AMD has gotten back in the game and is IMO the better overall deal with Ryzen chips offering many more threads for the dollar.... Intel is now the clock speed leader... when I started this thread Intel trolls said it would only be AMD chips here... now it looks like only Intel chips can make it in unless someone goes back to FX line... wouldn't do that just to get 5ghz lol..

I'm not an AMD fanboy and I'll tell you straight up if you want the best cpu for gaming, 7700K is it right now... maybe 8700K soon... but if you like to live stream using software or are a heavy multitasker... you'd be better off with an AMD 1600X than a 7700K and it costs less lol... personally if I was buying a CPU right now I'd go for the Ryzen 7 1700 and overclock the crap out of it... they have 8cores/16threads for about the same price as a 7700K and gaming performance isn't that far off..

Unfortunately right now I'm stuck on my old FX rig... good thing I know how to get decent performance out of this old crap.... wait... why the heck do we not have a poop emoji?! all those garbage faces and no poop emoji... hellooo site designers give us the poop!

I've upgraded from a 2500K @ 4.5GHz to a R5 1600 @ 3.9GHz currently and I have definitely noticed an improved gaming experience all round, I mainly play BF1/ The Division and my minimums have gone up considerably and gameplay is so much smoother even tho I'm using a gsync ultrawide. With the 2500K my fps would dip alot in BF1 and while gsync helped tremendously at keeping it smooth I did have stutters that would affect gameplay negatively.

Was waiting on coffeelake but decided to go with ryzen purely because the price/perf cannot be beat by anything Intel offers. At this point I'm also gpu bound so the extra $ I saved will be going towards a volta gpu next year.

I don't really need much multitasking power other than up to 50 web pages opened at a time with mutliple programs runing. A fx4300 with 16 gb is able to satisfy my needs.
I'm also looking at Intel cause of the stereo type that its more stable.
Currently theres not much reason for me to upgrade my system.

Your only half right. Amd is owning on efficiency too. Cant wait for mobile Zen
