Intel coffee lake vs ryzen

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I'm going to build a new gaming pc, currently have a 3570k, ddr3 ram which is starting to show its age, i want to upgrade motherboard, ram and cpu, pc is going to be used pretty much exclusively for gaming, i had every intention of getting a new coffee lake processor but the availability seems horrendous! What's my best option, i want the best bang for buck processor used for gaming that will last me a decent number of years, will be overclocking.

Hmm....best bang for buck gaming processor right now is probably the i5 8400. Maybe the R5 1600(X), depending on current GPU, resolution of the monitor and plans in that regard.

EDIT: also depends on the game ofc.

For gaming, Coffee Lake.

Ryzen would do just fine, but the IPC of the Intel chips are still higher than AMDs. I'd just wait if you're set on upgrading.

I'd save your money and just get a 3770K/more RAM if you need it, personally. The IPC bump from a 3570K to a 8600 or 8700 will be small, and unless the games you play are multithreaded, you're not going to see a huge bump in performance.

Honestly to me a budget gaming rig I'd go Ryzen either the 1700 or the 1600,The intel motherboards are pricey vs a am4 socket.And its said Amd is coming out with a zen 2 cpu in two years that will be am4 socket.So unless they go am4+ socket you could use it on a older board with a bios update,Or it could drive down the price of the Ryzen 1800x which could be a nice cheap upgrade then.Really it comes down what your budget really is for this build how you should go.

I am looking to finally upgrade from my FX-6350. I am looking at the i5-8400, Ryzen barely even got a look from me this time. Price and performance seems right, and budget is less of a consideration on this upgrade.

the ryzen prices are dropping low as ***** now, you can check out the AMD subreddit where people are posting a ton of deals

I think Ryzen is a better deal right now but the force is strong with coffeelake.

Just had the same thought process - went with the 8700K as its top 5 among many beast processor's. Looking at some of the higher end for gaming and Ryzen thought same thing but Intel pulled me back. If you haven't already take a look at this..

For the price of that 8700k he can buy a low end threadripper get more cores more threads and more pci-e lanes.Intels will over clock higher then any amd right now but the amds are cheaper to buy and so are the motherboards.
