In the past we only had 4 cores 8 threads, not 6 cores 12 threads or potentially 8 cores 16 threads on intel mainstream platform, changes made to CPU power delivery for a reason.

Not bad on HT core...no optimizations and w10...

Still not enough to catch 7800x Quad memory with 130Mhz less...

Lets not forget Intel would not have spent money to make these changes unless there was a good reason, cheaper board usually compromise on the VRM's and features.How many enthusiasts would be miffed if Z370 only supported one generation when in the past they have always supported 2?
That looks like quite bogus reason. Intel would likely not give a damn about low end MBs, it's problem of manufacturers to provide list of supported CPUs. Intel just needs to put warning to CPU box that users should check a compatibility of MB on MB manufacturer's website.

It's that simple, some manufacturers are (correctly) skipping Z370, thus some backward compatibility would be nice, especially when CPUs are not listed as 127W TDP. Any MB like Asus Z170 Ranger and better should support 8 core CPU, when MB manufacturer didn't skimp on power delivery and heatsinks, which would be bit absurd with board designed for OC and reliability.

I've had a 1700 and it was terrible in gaming compared to my 7800X.

Mmh, no point buying a 1700 if all you do is game, a 1600 gives you the same gaming performance at 2/3 the price. For high refresh rate gamers, it's Intel all the way though, no point buying anything but a 8700K at this point.

Been using my 1700x @ 3.9GHz @ 3333MHz Cas16 memory for a few days now with my 1080 Ti. (all my plans were ruined because of the stupid 8700k shortage) PUBG performance was surprisingly bad. I haven't really played with for for an extended period with a 144hz monitor and now I'm seeing all the weaknesses of the playform. it does a lot better with some multithreadded workloads by a significant amount compared to my 7700k but in gaming it's not terrible like bulldozer/piledriver but still losing to intel by a huge margin

I would not recommend ryzen for purely 1080p gaming unless they were on a tight budget and wanted the most bang per buck build. PUBG seems to only use 6 cores as of right now. Apparently bluehole may optimize it further ( i havent heard anything more though). They've been cancelling moar and moar of their updates, so im not sure whats going on with that game. I'm damn sure the xbox development has had some impact on the pc version, whether they say so or not its very obvious. Nice ryzen rig btw. No red accents?!

I'd recommend Ryzen for like a 4k@60hz monitor. anything that is high refresh rate it will struggle even with 3333MHz it's still struggling although performance is a lot better than it used to ( i was stuck at 2400mhz for like 3 months)


It was orange before biggrin.gif bought a new case for my main pc. I decided to use my s340 instead. the orange looks good but doesn't really fit my living room. I use this pc for VR/htpc and the s340 blends more in the background



I didn't want to build it yet but the 8700k shortage sucks. I wanted to install my z370 aorus gaming 7 on the news case but with the shortage I don't think I can get the cpu in atleast a month from now.

Isn't PUBG an outlier?
