narrdarr just a quick question...say i jump to the new zen2 platform
How much do you think i would be able to sell my?
asus z170 gaming pro (1301 bios for OC'ing non-k cpu)
i5 6500 with a dead core, but cores 0,1,and 2 are synced with stable OC up to 4.3 @ 1.3v(can push higher but whats the point))
16gb 2x8 2400mhz (oc to 2600ish from the blck OC)

Or i might just give it away to friend. If you guys think this can out preform a fx 6100 on some crap mobo with 12gb ram.

thegreatsquare With the PS5/XB2 coming soon, 7700k is soon running retro-gaming rig status, Anyone who isn't interested in the 3900x as their next gaming CPU doesn't understand what they're looking at. Running next-gen console ports and budgeting for a build is going to center around 8-core vs. 12-core [...the 16-core is more of a "money no object" thing]. A contest between getting 8 vs 12 cores is basically a redux of the E8400 vs Q6600, faster IPC vs 50% more cores question. The Q6600 won that long term even w/o overclocking and the difference in single core performance was significantly larger.

When do the 12-core gaming laptops come out? [...don't I wish.]

BroadPwns Yup, a database of three games that is completely useless. Though you can see clearly why you should not even consider 7700k by looking at the Far Cry 5 chart.

Gunderman456 Something to think about:

06-24-2019 06:18 PM
narrdarr 700$ price Mark comes from 3700x + x570 mobo + better kit of ram to get the most out of the cpu.

600 to 700 for switching platforms.
Which will mostly only affect the 1% lows at 1440p 144hz even on the newer platform.

I just don't the price to performance being there. Even with i7 7700k being overpriced atm. If I already had the platform to run the 3700x it would be a no brainer.

Am I miss something here?

AlphaC You're way better off with a Ryzen 5 3600 , Ryzen 7 2700X , or Ryzen 7 3700X IMO.

I bought into the Ryzen ecosystem when deciding between the i7-7700k and Ryzen 1st gen (around AGESA and it's been the best decision.

yes the i7 7700k has no path past that. which is fine. still and upgrade from what i currently have.
i'm not using the system for productivity only gaming and its at 1440p. which is still sold with the i7.

the ryzen 1800x is better with its 1% lows, but spending 700$(450$ difference) to have maybe up to 14% better 1% lows seem like a not so good idea.
The 1800X is not $700? It's like $321 on newegg.com and 1st gen. Odd, it's $321 in US and $329 on newegg.ca in Canada. Something is off with newegg in US. Maybe there is no more and that is a 3rd party seller.

You can still find it on Amazon.com for $216.95.

Yes, that was the comparison and think how good you'll have it with a Zen 2 which is 3rd/present gen!

7nm Ryzen launch on the 7th, the 1800 is basically 3 generations old at this point.
^this. 1800X is old.
