[Various]AMD Ryzen 5 1600x/1500x/1400 Reviews Roundup - Page 6

post #51 of 123
The intel 4 core Kaby K is 240, the 2 core Kaby K is 180 vs Ryzen 1600 is 220. I expected intel do do a a bit better than that. It is a price drop. It is not as if the next intel is going use the same socket and 8 core zen APUs are on the horizon. Plus Zen 2 will short;ly be here after that. Hey I am on a budget and every ducat needs too add up with performance where I need it. I am halfway there, been storing 25, 50 here and there for 6 months. This had better be better when the pile gets big enough. rolleyes.gif

i've been pooping hard on amd and even i admit they did good and im gonna buy a 1600/x because 12 threads are better than 4. i5's are pretty pointless right now.

I have an 1800x and I love it. I was also building my wife a computer and I was able to get an Intel i7 7700k for $269 with a free motherboard. It isn't a fancy board, but it is an ASUS Prime B250m-k. It runs great, but I love my Ryzen sooooo much more.

i've been eyeing the b350 tomahawk , supports 3200 ddr4 (supposedly) and overclocks pretty well from what everyone is saying, also its on sale right now for $95

Tempted to upgrade this FX-6300 to R5 1600 but my current rig still does everything I want, though. *sigh*

I guess that depends on the game and GPU used. Ryzen 1600X beats i5-7600K in minimum fps in some games from what I've seen in reviews. Yes.
But i7-7700K beat both, sometimes by a decent margin, and is not much more expensive.

Ryzens performance in many games are hit and miss, which is a problem. Overall i5 seems to deliver decent performance across all games.

Here Ryzen @ 4.0 beats i5-7600K @ 4.8 using a 1070..







But in several other games the i5 wins

I think R5 is great value. Right in the sweet spot. Although I do not own one (for now). I am sitting on the fence in regards of stretching my current system (i7-3820@4.3GHz) for another year or doing R7-1700 system to serve me for another 5 years with GPU upgrade every year or two. That said probably even R5 would serve me well.

I have a significant average background load (continuous backups running with large dataset) so Ryzen seems to me a very interesting option. Its single threaded performance is about the same as I have currently (4 GHz Ryzen ~ 4.3 GHz i7-3820) but it still would be kind of side-grade and I cant live with less than 32 GB of RAM but DDR4-3200+ is damn pricy atm ... and so I am sitting and looking at things.

But the point of the day is that I am looking even though I'm on LGA2011 platfrom already rocking 4c/8t part with mild OC so I would say Ryzen is certainly quite a solid showing from AMD. Compared to, for example, Bulldozer where I was as hyped as anyone else and as dissapointed as most others when it was such a flop. For reference I should add that what I do is floating point heavy so for me Bulldozer and its follow ups were particularly floppy as they had only half of the floating points units.

That is how my normal load looks like, nothing particularly intensive, just a browser open with 75 tabs, few backups running, Matlab analyzing slowly some dataset in the background (I/O bound so relatively little CPU load), remote desktop open to a VM in the server...


What many people seem to be missing when dismissing Ryzen is how much of "background activity" there can be going on when the PC is in essence "idle". Throw in there a cloud backup service doing its thing, e-mail and web browser open with few tabs and you can easily hit 40% average background load with 4 cores / 8 threads.
