From 2500k@4.8ghz to Ryzen 1600 ? worth it ? - Page 4

post #31 of 79
More representative of S.T performance, not CPU. Or do you forget that many games are M.T up to 8~12 cores ?

Put that quad core in crysis 3 (old game) and start to cry ! You cannot say that CPU performance is relative/representative to crap RTS games....

I play RTS so it's more representative of CPU performance

Maybe saying by a long shot is subjective. But overall I would say Ryzen is better.

i agree, but the question is, is this gain really worth spending $600? Then again an i5 is pushing it today already. Quite a tricky situation i have to admit. Even the GPU is old but not quite as old to upgrade.


Personally, i would wait for Coffee Lake and Volta/Vega. I don't think this rig requires an immediate upgrade today.

i just paired my 2500k at 4200hz with a 980ti and a ultra wide screen monitor 3440x1440 , runs every game ive tried at 75hz.

I can agree to that. At the cost of new RAM, CPU and Motherboard its kind of a lateral move unless you really want something better for workstation workloads.

Why are you upgrading your PC?

If for better gaming experience, then look for a better gpu, because no sub 250$ CPU on the market would be a great improvement over a 2500k @ 4.8ghz in games.

If for better productivity work, then the 6c/12t R5 1600 would be a huge upgrade over your 2500k, especially in rendering.

I do play, so at least I would want the same performances if I upgrade.
Otherwise I do movie editing and I use Illustrator, After Effects and Premiere Pro.
Today I exported a 42min video with PP; 1080i 50fps 18/20Mbits h.264, VBR 2 pass = it took 2½ hours to export.

Another thing I wonder, CUDA improves performance with PP by a huge margin BUT how much does it reduce time when I export ? On some test I saw that the cpu didn't matter so much when CUDA was enabled.

http://media.gamersnexus.net/images/media/2017/CPUs/1600x/amd-r5-premiere-benchmark.png

On that graphic, when CUDA enabled the gap between cpu's is almost none.

Article here:
http://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2875-amd-r5-1600x-1500x-review-fading-i5-argument/page-3

And I do use CUDA with my GTX780.
